Lightsaber

I love lightsabers so I decided to make one. Here it is. What do you think?

Not bad at all. You could always go for more detail but it depends on your goal with this render.

Anyways, nice job!

Looks pretty good. Just as a tip, you may want to select the object and hit “Set Smooth” to round the edges.

Nice. I really like it. I agree with radrevere, you may use set smooth :wink: .
If you do not mind to let me know, how do you make the “lighting” part of the saber? It looks so cool. :smiley:

-Digdaya-

can you tell me how you made the lightsaber glow? im learning blender still and i would liketo know.

It looks like particles. Or did you use an image editor?

My guess is an object with emitting material, then set to glow using the Sequence Editor. There is another project using that method somewhere, but I’ve forgotten where…

There’s a lightsaber plugin somewhere on the forums, just search for it…

:expressionless: Forgot about that thing…oh well.

Make sure when you smooth it out, it doesn’t darken in spots. To stop this from happening all you really need to do is turn off double sided faces.
