Luke's Lightsaber - Episode IV 3D Model
I modeled this in 2016 to-scale in Solidworks based upon hundreds of high-res reference images and still frames from the film as well as dimensional drawings that I found online. I believe this could potentially be the most dimensionally accurate model out there of Luke’s Lightsaber from Episode IV - A New Hope. I converted the nurbs CAD model to high-count polygons and then generated this low-poly version with normal mapping and texturing done with an old trial version of Substance Painter.
I put together a fun (personal use only) VR experience for Vive using the UE4 engine and this model. I just developed it to the point where you could wield the lightsaber, turn it on/off, swing it around with sound effects, and that’s about it.
