3D Printing An Epic Sword Baby Rattle

I’ve vowed to document more of my 3D printing for you on this website rather than just social media.

Matthew at modeled this awesome baby rattle.  I mean come on … it’s me … I LOVE knives! How could I not print this thing?  Plus, my wife is a photographer.  It could be a great prop for her to use.

The whole print was done on my Orion Delta 3D printer from  It was printed in PLA (3 colors) at a 0.2 layer height (standard resolution).

I also printed the rattle beads from Matthew’s files. I printed 2x as many beads as included in the file. You drop them in one by one as the sword blade is half printed. The blade is hollow so you just drop the beads right in.
