2020-03-01 (Su) Electro Knife for Simulated Combat EleKSCo

Some of my dimensions were too snug, and the voltage generator bit into the print, where it delaminated the insides. Delamination was an issue with my printer where the layers are not adhering, and scaling things improperly.

The blade adapter fits over the rubber knife well, but I think it will be too flimsy. I planned to put a couple of bolts through the blade.

When I put all four sections together, it was clear that a single bolt would not hold everything together reliably. Gaps between the parts were evident, and they would not stay aligned. On top of that, it was ugly and felt awkward in my hand.

Rigidity was going to be vital and challenging in the project. I placed some steel braces around the knife handle and high voltage generator, and this will be the next path I take to make a handle.
