Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER

Get ready cosplay enthusiast and makers alike we are going to make something you all know about Its called the Assassins Creed Hidden blade.Its designed by me based from all the videos I've watched in youtube with out having an exact blueprint that has dimensions on it. All I really did was i kept on rewatching the same video over and over and over again until I got each part to work inside my head. After that I drew some templates that would fit my arm, then from that I started designing/ modelling and printing my own parts.The blade is not 100% complete but it works like a charm the only thing missing here is the automatic pull back mechanism where the blade goes back inside automatically, instead you flick a switch to retract it back but popping it out is no problem since that is the main goal of this hidden blade. Worry not I will soon make another ibles wherein the dual action works properly. But to do that I need you full attention and support to make this happen because I just started 3D modelling in sketchup and Autocad So feel free to message me and ask for the .skp or Dwg files C'mon and lets help one another.

For my entry in FORMLABS CONTEST: If I win the Form 1+ 3D printer, I will design and engineer interesting mechanisms like this that will satisfy my need for precision and speed. And with the printer I will make good use of it in making robots and gadgets like "SMART WATCH" "SMART DOLL", I will use the printer for my future project: "Perpetual GENERATOR" Something I've been thinking about last year its just, i'm still learning the ways of 3D modelling since I havent really mastered the whole thing. I will show the world what a kid can do with a 3D printer and I will show everyone why they should get a Form 1+ 3D printer.

SPECIAL THANKS To ammnra and Imdeepain for their wonderful videos in youtube, they sure gave me a lot of ideas and problems during the build hehehehe

This hidden knife will need some sanding and some recyclable materials like springs from old pens and screws from your old toys.

"BLADE MODES" Make your imagination run wild!

Use it as a

-hidden dagger

-Hidden Knife

-Hidden blade

or just a show piece!

A QUICK VIEW OF THE ASSEMBLY

TOOLS and materials you will need for this build

1x Clear epoxy

1x Super glue

2x Thumbtacks

1x Rubber band standard

2x Paper clips

1x Pen spring

1x Long Nose

1x Dremel

1x mini drill with 1mm drill bit

1x Tweezers.

6x M3 x 5 screws

Sand paper "GRIT" P120 and P60

Step 1: Blueprint~

Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER
Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER

The blade has 11 printed parts, and each part has its own print setting
For every part I will indicate the print setting or feel free to set your own to hasten the print But if you want quality prints better use my setting.

Now try looking at the image.... looks easy right? Its a simple yet complicated mechanism I would say, because of all the friction that occurs inside during the action.So the key here is precision and soft surfaces.

Step 2: Print #1 BODY

Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER

BODY

infill: 20-40%

LAYER HEIGHT 0.20 to 0.18 THE LOWER YOU GO THE MORE YOU GET QUALITY PRINTS IT ALSO TAKES MORE TIME TO PRINT

Shells: 0

You may need to sand some surfaces here but if the print is smooth I guess there is no need to do so.

Step 3: PRINT # 2 BLADE

Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER

blade

infill: 70-80%

LAYER HEIGHT 0.20 to 0.18 THE LOWER YOU GO THE MORE YOU GET QUALITY PRINTS IT ALSO TAKES MORE TIME TO PRINT

Shells: 0

Same as the Body and I did this so that the blade wont break of easily so as the body.

The blade will need some sanding or trimming, look closely at the pic to see where exactly

Step 4: Print #3 LOCKERS

Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER

INFILL 100%

LAYER HEIGHT : 0.1 its small so why not make it HD right

Shell: 0

MECHS

Dont get confused by these parts

There is the MECHL1 and MECHL2 for the left part and MECHR1 and MECHR2 for the right part

You will need to glue MECHL2 onto MECHL1 Follow the picture to get an idea of what to do. And do the same thing for MECHR1 and 2

Infill 60%

Layer height: 0.20

Shell : 0

MAke sure every part moves just right on the body including the blade, switch and MECHS.

The goal here now is to mount the locks on the chassis now how to do this?

1. Get your thumbtack and pin it through the holes on the LOCK, ones done

2. Position the lock on the edge just like on the photo.

3. Pin it down until you get a small dent on the surface of the plastic.

4. On that dent drill it vertically with a 1mm drill bit. Pin that hole with some of your extra thumbtacks and make sure its firm and locked in place.Apply some epoxy/super glue on the base of the body to further lock the position of the thumbtack.

5. Do the same for the other side~ just make sure the locks move freely.

Step 11: Assembly #2 Springy

Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER
Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER

Spring!

You will need old pen springs.

1.Get your long nose and expand the spring by stretching it the goal here is to make the spring metal flat as possible

2.Cut 2x 22mm flat spring metal "it does not need to be exactly flat~"

3.Go back to the body and look for the tiny hole there you will glue the spring metal

4. Apply a generous amount of super glue on the spring metal and insert it inside the hole using tweezers

5. Add some more super glue on the surface of the hole

6. Let it dry~

7. Bend the spring metal at certain angle the goal here is to make the lockers point out

Step 12: Assembly #3 MECHS

Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER
Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER

By the looks of the image you will get an idea of what to do so just glue it up ~

You will also notice there is a hole on it and that is where you will put your paper clips.

1. straighten the paper clip and trim it

2. With the remaining metal you see make a hook~

3. Do the same thing for the other MECH

Step 13: Assembly #4

Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER
Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER

Now you assembled the mechs its time to see if it works~

Get a small rubber band and hook it onto the mechs

place switch at the center and try it out if it works fine then cover it up and screw it in place

Step 14: Assembly #5 CUt that~

Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER

There is this excess metal on your thumbtack right so we cut that using a dremel

Cut this infront of a fan/Aircon. because it may melt the plastic as the metal heats up.

Look at the picture to get an idea of where to cut exactlyMe

Step 15: Congratulations~

Assassins Creen Hidden Blade/DAGGER

Your done!~ Enjoy your hidden knife

And if you noticed the hole on the switch you can attach a string going to your ring and from that you can turn the hidden knife into a hidden blade! its just a single action not the dual action you are looking for but dont worry I will be posting another build that features the dual action hidden blade~

Step 16: Trouble Shooting

The hidden blade is designed with the help of some physics

So I'll give some of the problems i've encountered before that may help you with your problems too.

Problem 1. The blade does not pop out "completely"

Fix 1: Sand the blade on its sides and smoothen the walls of the body where the blade is placed (IMPORTANT)

Fix 2: Make sure that the Mechs move smoothly along its rails

Problem 2 The blade pops out but the blade does not lock in place

Fix 1: stretch your rubber band make try making the tension weaker, sometimes the launching action is to fast/hard that the lockers dont catch the blade, instead it bounces of way past the locks.

Fix 2: The hooks try replacing the hooks by printing new mech this time make the hook a little further to lessen the tension.

Comment your problems let me see what I can do

Just REMEMBER SANDING is the KEY, Friction is your enemy.
