Thingiverse member Targ was inspired by a fellow designer dutchmogul’s 3D printed rattle mace and made a pair of sword rattles for his baby. Each sword is made of five pieces. Targ printed all of them using PLA filament, with the exception of the jewel, which is made of Taulman’s T-Glase filament.
Targ also 3D printed the little balls that give off the rattling sound. To ensure that they’d stay inside the sword, he inserted the peas while his printed was making the blade. He recommends using super glue or 5-minute epoxy to secure the sword pieces together.
Head to Targ’s Thingiverse page to download the files for the rattle. Dutchmogul’s mace rattle is just as cute so you should check that out as well.
