Star Wars Light Saber Rendered

by | Mar 19, 2014 | 0 comments

Do I even need to say what it is? Roy Gilsing has set out to create the most accurate 3D model of the original Star Wars Light Saber. Using reference to parts used on the prop, he modeled this one in SolidWorks, then created this spectacular render in KeyShot. Jump down for more detail shots and another newer version.

From Roy via the KeyShot forum:

It seems that the original lightsaber prop, built in 1977 for the first star wars movie, was constructed from existing old and weathered parts to give it an authentic and used look. For many years of searching the real die-hards discovered all the parts that were originally used:

  • Rolls Royce Derwent engine Balance Pipe
  • British No.3 MK1 Rifle Grenade
  • Graflex flashgun Clamp
  • Exactra Calculator Bubble Strip
  • Browning ANM2 Booster
  • Armitage Shanks Starlite Sink Knob
  • Cone adapter for Balance Pipe
  • Transistor & Washer set
  • Clamp spacer
  • 10.25″ steel threaded rod
  • 3/4″ d-ring

How they figured some of that out is beyond me, but you can make out some of the items in the details below. Thanks again to Roy for submitting these great renders!
