Introduction: Assassin's Creed Valhalla Eivor Axe 02

About: I am a technical artist working in the game and software industry. 3D printing is a side hobby of mine.

This 3d printable sword was designed after the concept art found in Cosplay Guidelines released by Ubisoft for their 2020 Assassin's Creed Valhalla video game. The 3d printable files associated with this project are free to download for non commercial personal use.

Printing Tips:

  1. To reduce or prevent print warping, use the free program Meshmixer to split up the blade file into smaller pieces or to fit within the printing bounds of your printer.

Step 2: Post Processing

To make painting easier, it is beneficial to sand down all printed pieces to remove print imperfections such as over extrusion spots. Prime pieces with a plastic bonding primer. After drying, sand the primer. I like to wet sand as it produces less dust, longer life of the sandpaper and allows a smooth surface compared to dry sanding. Apply additional primer as need and re-repeat the sanding process as needed.

Step 3: Painting

The axe according to the concept are is made up of 4 colors: Silver, Brown, Gold, and Blue. To make a faux metal, I started with the silver metallic spray paint & made quick passes at a short distance away from the blade. I repeated the process with the black spray paint. Varying the distance and swapping back and forth between silver and black paint, I was able to make a galvanized metal finish.

The Blue, gold, and brown colors were manually painted on with a paint brush.

Step 4: Assemble

Glue the wooden dowel into the hole at the bottom of the blade. Thread the belly, throats, grip pieces onto the rod. Glue as necessary. Add pummel piece to the end
