In this project-based tutorial, you’ll learn all of the steps needed to make your own Guardian Sword from Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We’ll go through all of the printing, processing, and assembly steps needed for you to create your own replica.
This project was originally done by Adafruit, so check out their tutorial here! Make sure to reference their required parts and tools list so that you can follow along. We’ll be adding a few additional steps to their tutorial which includes part splitting so that this can be printed on smaller machines, and part painting to create a weathered finish.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
