What is Adaptive Saber Parts (ASP) by Saberforge? (Lightsaber Terminology)
Adaptive Saber Parts (ASP) is a modular lightsaber building system by custom saber manufacturer Saberforge. The system allows lightsaber enthusiasts to mix and match saber parts in order to construct an original, customized lightsaber hilt design. The ‘saber builder’ must select: an emitter, switch, body, and pommel. ASP is not compatible with Modular Hilt System (MHS) parts. MHS is a modular lightsaber building system developed by The Custom Saber Shop.

Lightsaber enthusiasts can use the Saber Parts simulator (found on SaberParts.com) to play around with different parts combinations and to configure their very own 3D virtual lightsaber. Users can select from various: emitters, switch sections, bodies, pommels, couplers, etc. The program can also conjure up a ‘random saber’ as well.
The Saber Parts simulator is a fun way to construct a 3D virtual lightsaber, whether you intend to ultimately purchase an ASP lightsaber or not. Users can share their completed virtual saber through social media and also copy the parts list for their own reference.
