**Obi-Wan Kenobi Dual Extrusion Collapsible Lightsaber** This is similar to the [original]( https://social.thangs.com/m/64648) but the files have been split apart for two color printing. This saber has a removable collapsing blade that can be printed separately in a different color. The hilt is designed with a screw on cap which allows the blade to be inserted after its printed. The hilt prints 205mm tall but it expands to over 950mm in total length with the collapsing blade installed! **Printing** None of the parts require supports, except for the built in supports for two of the buttons. The blades can be printed concentrically as an assembly or individually in vase mode. If you plan to print concentrically, a single stl contains all the blades. If printing in vase mode, there is a stl for each blade. **Vase Mode** I prefer printing the blades in vase mode as the result is a much cleaner and easier print that can easily be scaled. If you print sequentially, it’s faster too. If printing at 100% scale, set the line width to .94mm. If you plan to print it smaller, scale the line width down by the same about. If printing in vase mode you can scale down to a minimum of 55% with a .4mm nozzle. For vase mode turn top and bottom layers on for the first blade, but turn it off for segments 2-5. You will notice that the vase mode files are solid, this is so your slicer knows not to print an internal perimeter. Top and Bottom layers Turn only the bottom layers off when printing the first blade segment, and turn both top and bottom layers off when printing the rest. Print two blade segments and test. If the blades don't catch, bump your line width up .2mm or so. If they catch too soon, reduce line width. **Concentric** When printing the blades concentrically use a .4mm nozzle and set the line width to .43 so the blades are two shell thick. If you would like to scale it down try printing the vase mode version instead. Before printing the blade assembly make sure perform the test print found [here]( https://thangs.com/3dprintingworld/Sword-Saber%20Test%20Print-23601) This print is sensitive to the layer seam and extruder calibration, it’s a good idea to make sure your setting are tuned so the blades don’t fuse. **Test Print** The test print is a total of 24mm high so I change; retraction, cost, wipe, extra restart, z-hop, ext.. settings every 8mm. Then I compare the changes until I achieve the best result. Printed with [Solutech Silver Metal]( https://amzn.to/39B5Pl5) for the handle and [Atomic Sapphire Blue]( https://atomicfilament.com/products/translucent-sapphire-blue-pla-filament?variant=17355980801) for the blade Printed on the [Muldex]( https://github.com/3dprintingworld/MULDEX) rep-rap IDEX printer. **Collapsing Lightsabers** [ROTJ Dual Extrusion]( https://thangs.com/3dprintingworld/Collapsing-Lightsaber-Dual-Extrusion--34803) [Vader’s Single Extrusion]( https://thangs.com/3dprintingworld/Collapsing-Sith-Lightsaber-23598) [Vader’s Dual Extrusion]( https://thangs.com/3dprintingworld/Collapsing-Sith-Lightsaber-dual-extrusion-28319) [Leia’s Dual and Single](https://thangs.com/3dprintingworld/Leias-Dual-Extrusion-Collapsing-Lightsaber--25509) _Note: Assembly model for reference only._ ___ **Support and Licensing** If you would like to help support more free models, or get permission to sell physical copies of my models, consider joining my [Patreon]( https://www.patreon.com/3dprintingworld)
