I posted all the parts and directions you need for your own 3D print here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1779165

Design:
- Based off of Steve Belledin’s update on Sword of Feast and Famine from MtG KLD’s Masterpiece series.
- This is a 9-piece print made using the max dimensions on a Makerbot Replicator5…the whole thing measures 1.03 meters in length (see image for scale)

Making it:
- Print the parts with the sword sticking straight up (see image from Makerbot software for reference).  It’ll make the surface of your sword nice and clean!
- There’s holes alone the axis to attach parts using wooden dowels (the Ikea furniture method).  You can find those here https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000PCEUW2/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 or at your local hardware store.  They add axial strength, and when you use them with wood glue they will expand and fit nicely.
- I printed mine in ABS at 15% infill (was ~$10 worth of filament plastic).  There was some warping, but since it’s along the edges it wasn’t too bad. If you cluster your pieces densely as in the picture there will not be a lot of perimeter on the raft to lift and warp :)
- Glue and/or putty the joints smooth and secure, add some rattan straw, floral wire, and ivy (https://www.amazon.com/Bird-Fiy-Artificial-Dalloween-Decorations/dp/B015OQJFH8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1474295834&sr=8-2&keywords=ivy)

Enjoy!

ART DESCRIPTION:
Setting: INNISTRAD
Location: In a mad scientist’s lab
Action: Show a close-up of a female human “mad scientist” who is crouched over her test subject – an exposed brain. (It should be pretty bloodless – maybe we only see brain matter through a square in a sheet, or maybe the subject’s opened head is angled away from us.) She looks like she’s about to go taking samples from this brain – maybe she has a small bowl in one hand and some sort of drill-like scooping tool in the other. She leans in with slightly twitchy glee, eager to take her first scoop.
Focus: The mad scientist
Mood: “This is for SCIENCE!”
