How-to: Keyblade by JoeCoool How-to: Keyblade by JoeCoool
As promised, here is a step-by-step guide to how I made my Keyblade. I know that a lot of you do not know how to use SolidWorks, but I hope that you enjoy going through the process with me! Dimensions are included if you want them, though they may be a bit large.

The original can be found here: [link]

The program used to create this was SolidWorks 2008.

If you like it, please :+fav: and comment. Makes me want to make more.

How did you mate the chain links to the sword and to each other?

I just manually positioned the chains and used the 'fix' mate to lock their position.

What gloss blue did you use?

High gloss, if I had to guess. Play around with the options and lighting until you find a material that you like.

Hi, how do you add the polished gold and gloss blue and all those things? I'm not sure how to get to where I need to be to do it.

If you have PhotoWorks installed along with your copy of SolidWorks, you fist need to make sure that it's in use; you can do this by going to the add-ins menu on the top bar. On the right of the screen, there should be a little tab for PhotoWorks. Click there and browse through the different materials. Once you find one you want, you can just drag it onto the feature you want in the feature tree on the left.

If you don't have PhotoWorks, you might be able to change the color or the feature in question by adjusting the appearances for that feature. Unfortunately, I no longer have SolidWorks installed on my computer, so I can't check on that for you, but I hope one of these two methods works for you. Good luck!
