Warrior Dash AZ Recap

Look at us all clean and not covered in mud...yet.

Warrior Dash Arizona was last week.  My sister and I raised $415 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital together.  Thank you to everyone who helped make that happen!

Quick Recap:

Warrior Drank:

Delicious.  Even my 10-month-old daughter wanted in on the action.  I indulged her.

Dash:

Grueling.  Proud of my sister for finishing with me in 50-something minutes even though her ankle was bugging her.

Sibling Powers: ACTIVATE! Don't mind me... Just poppin' a squat. Not pictured: Firefighter aiming hose at everyone as they cross to mitigate burns.

Supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital:

Successful.  Total fundraising efforts by all the participants for Arizona looks to be upward of $11k!

Battle Axe:

Scaled.  I printed a 3.5x version of the model because it would easily fit on my Printrbot without needing to cut up the blade.  Files can be found on Thingiverse, YouMagine, and Cults3D.

I'm pretty stoked about how this turned out.

The entire build is press-fit and doesn’t need glue (you might need a hammer though).  Print & assemble as follows:

I suppose I could have made it larger if I angled it, but whatevs.

Orientation is key.

Infill at 40% is likely excessive, but I do like how solid the end product feels.  Supports needed on both, and brim setting on the handle parts was used (probably not necessary though).

Links designed for maximum strength.

Don’t feel obligated to print all the handle parts at the same time, but the orientation is important.  The design and layering of the components will greatly reduce the chances for a random break when you’re swinging it around, vanquishing foes.

...And there were no more worlds to conquer...
