The populer sword from Final Fantasy VII! Made in 2 versions the one from the Final Fantasy VII remake (from trailer videos) and from Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. At 2.1 meters this is one of the largest swords in gaming history and and maybe also in 3d printing history. Also comes with Clouds left 'Bracelet' (right one will follow soon when I find more detailed pictures of it) and Shoulder pad! Also supplied is a checklist which can be used for printing one of the versions.
All files are named logically being: (Bed size) - (Colour) - (Part) - (Part nr) - (Series if applicable).
Approximately 2.5kg of filament is required to print this depending on your settings (calculated with 2 perimeters and 7% infill) and takes around 6 days non-stop printing. The grip/handle parts could use some more infill to ensure nothing going wrong while acting like the hero trying to that cute Tifa Lockheart on the convention.
Files are sliced for a 300x300x350 bed, files for a smaller bed will follow soon but there are also files for:
- Blade black half full (both versions of the sword)
- Blade silver half full
- Full blade (both versions of the sword)
That can be sliced to your own needs with software like meshmixer or other STL slicing software!
The grip comes in 2 versions, with a pattern and smoothed to add an own leather strap for a cooler look!
[IMPORTANT] For internal strength there can be up to four 8mm rods of about 2 meter (requires trimming at certain parts), I suggest adding at least one through the grip's center that goes up the full length of the sword.
[IMPORTANT] If you scale this version down but still want to use the rods ensure you'll resize everything accordingly. The hole size for the prints is 8.3mm to account for some prints
[IMPORTANT] Seeing this is such a long print I've not finished my own print just yet but am in the process of making this along with 2 other people independently and till now all files are working well!
[REALLY IMPORTANT] Choose your Materia wisely, you never know what you will encounter on the battlefield!

I've added a second version of the Grip (300x300x350 - Red - Grip V2.stl) which requires no support at all to print, might also be better when holding the sword. Also added some WIP pictures
Also I'm always up for suggestions so if you have any please hit me up!
[Instructions Buster Sword]
For most files it's suggested to print with at least 10% infill and 3 or 4 perimiters but don't overdo it, adding more infill will increase
the weight which is an issue when you will be carrying this baby around.
The grip/handle parts could use some more infill (20%?) to ensure nothing going wrong while acting like the hero trying to save that cute Tifa on the convention.
If you slice the sword yourself keep in mind that for the Advent Children version the '300x300x350 - Gold - Blade Decal (Advent Children).stl' part'
is not included in the model so seperation of this coloured part is not required.
The bracelet size is currently scaled for an adult hand to fit through allong with some space to add foam for carying convinience.
The inner diamater is 9.5cm where my hand (without thumb) is 9cm in width so scale accordingly.
The Shoulderpad inner width is around 12cm which seems enough for my shoulder but might require some scaling for you, you can't over do it to make it more dramatic :-)
