Troll Slayer

The challenge for this design was to create a sword that is assembled glue-free using slot-joints, as well as mixing both solid body modelling from Solidworks and organic modelling from ZBrush. Kirby Downey modelled the blade and hilt joints, while Elliot Viles modelled the skulls on the hilt in ZBrush. Once the model was printed and assembled, it was finished beautifully by Catherine Wood of's talented post-processing team.
