  1. A part of the turrect is done. Also painted one of his hands hopefully his other hand with machinegun will be done tomorrow and mounted to his body His arm is now attached, still missing his shoulder
  2. One of his legs are now sanded and sprayed with primer. Ready for painting Leg done painting: Some progress on his body and head. This is there the computer will be mounted. started to paint his torso, still some details here and there missing, but its starting to take shape
  3. Bastion gun and turret done printing. ready for sprayfiller, sanding and then primer and be painted in gunmetall black Machinegun done: Testing light in his head:
  4. Bastion Overwatch Starting on my new project, this time i will build Bastion from the computer game Overwatch. This will be fully 3D printed. Bastion will have Blue LEDS in his head and torso, rotating head, and be able to speak. 3D Printer This project will be printed with a Makerbot replicator 5th Gen printer. - 0.2 layer hight - 30% infill - Supports - Raft Printed with PLA 1,75mm Hardware ASrock Beebox-s - Intel i5-6200U - 8GB DDR4 - M.2 SSD 256GB The motherboard will be taken out of its orginal beebox-s enclosure and use it in Bastions torso. Planning This case will be about 70cm high and printed in 259 parts, some parts will be combined together with printing, rest will be glued together. After all parts are printed i will use sandpaper,sprayfiller and paint to get a smooth surface and the correct color on the model. The computer i will use for this project is a ASRock Beebox-s barebone. Will also make a displaystand that i can use for LAN-parties Progress Here are some parts that are done printing This project will take some time. Some of the biggest parts will take about 25-30 hours to print, the smaller parts will only take 1-3 hours of printing.
  5. yea, it's a classic and it's still functional, but old hardware.
  6. My Stewie Griffin casemod, from family guy. Started to make some models from paper. to find the right ice to fit the computer parts in his head. When i found the right sizes for the head i made a frame out of aluminium Then som fiberglass for the "eggformed" head. Drawed some eyes, nose and a mouth to find the right spots for it. the nose: Eyes: mouth,eyebrows,"hair" and ears: http://images.gfx.no/283/283324/hode09-564x376.jpg was unble to find small baby clothing matching what i wanted, so i hade to make them my self:P Here we have his body with new shoes and some fingers are ready to be crafted Made a plattform so stewie can be stable: Here we have a "stewie Voice decvice". when you press his belly he says things: "Who in the :) do you think you are?" "Stop mocking me!" "Damn, you vile woman!" "I come bearing a gift. I'll give you a hint: it's in my diaper and it's not a toaster!" "You shall rue this day! Be gone! Start rue-ing!" "Put me through to the Pentagon!" I also made some toy bricks for him. Here we have the hardware: - VIA EPIA-NL 10000G Nano-ITX - Pico Power 120 Watt PSU - 2,5" SATA - 512 MB SO-DIMM DDR RAM - 1 Creative-Speaker Here we have him at his first lan with a red bull All hardware is mounted in his head.
  7. Planning After i saw the movie "Flushed away" i though it must be awsome to make a mod from it, and the Crazy slug was my choice i wanted to build it as small as possible and use a nano-itx for this. Building Eyeballs made of Tabletennis balls :=)
  8. Planning How big was it going to be? And how to fit it all together? This needed to be thought through and I figured out that I could first build a full-figure paper figure first, and then make all the mistakes I wanted without wasting time and sheet-metal. This was used in the project: * 1 Slim slotload DVD ROM/CD-burner from Carputer.no * 1 VIA EPIA-M 10000 Mini-ITX motherboard * WLAN-kort with antenna * 2 10 watt light-bulbs (12volt) * 1 120 GB harddisk + 4 external 250 GB disks on firewire * Metal ducts (for feet and hands) * 3 Metal kitchen-bowls from Coop (for the top of the head, and legs) * 4-5 paper sheets * 3 0,7 mm pieces of steel sheet-metal * 1 Digital voice recorder from Produkt 24 After playing with different 3d programs I managed to print this 3D-model. I used it as a blueprint where I filled in the measurements for size, and so on. And so the work with the paper-figure started, calculating angles, finding the correct proportions, etc. There, we have a paper-figure, very crooked and stuff. With this paper figure all we have to do is spread out the sheets of paper on the sheet-metal and use them as a template . Now when all templates and parts we need are finished, we can start building. Building Bender The eyes used are 10 watt halogen bulbs running on 12 volts, wired to the PSU . Since these are only 10 watts and wired serially, they don't get very warm and don't use much power. Then it was time to start with Bender's body. Started with taking out the paper-model and putting it on the sheet-metal for marking: Then the cutting began. The sheet-metal was cut, rolled until completely round and then welded together. At last Bender was taking shape, but just the same a lot of work remained. And then there was Bender's head: A lot of people thought the head would be a problem considering that the top of the head is round. But it wasn't. Coop [Norwegian co-op supermarket] has metal kitchen bowls. These bowls had just the right diameter and everything, talk about luck Now when the head is finished it has to be mounted on the body and holes have to be cut for the doors and I have to attach arms and legs. Now Bender is really beginning to take shape. The teeth were made from a plastic visor used for helmets. This was then painted and teeth were painted on. After that a whole was cut out for the slot-in DVD-rom which is mounted inside the head. the WLAN antenna is also mounted on top of the head and the doors have been cut out . Unfortunately the hindges on the doors were mounted on the wrong side, so the door opens to the opposite side compared to the original, but that's just a minor issue, this version of Bender is left-handed. Then we had to figure out how to attach the motherboard. After a lot of brain-wracking I figured out that all cables would be exiting through Benders butt. So that's why this solution was chosen. It seems this was a great solution. Better this than having the cables exit fromt he side of the body and devestating the whole look. Sanding and painting Sanding was the worst of it all. I had used plastic steel for filling all the joints, so that they werenice and smooth, but this caused a lot of dust. After 4-5 hours it was like I had gotten a bag of flour in my hair. I never was completely satisfied with my sanding/polishing work, but I was tired and had dust everywhere.. The painting went very well and very fast And then there were the hands and legs. The hands themselves were made from 2 flower pots from Nille for 29 kr each. The fingers were made from 6 aluminium tubes. The fingers were attached with plastic steel and were sanded and painted. Mounting Benders parts Then we had to attach amrs, legs and hardware. After a lot of cutting of overlong arms and legs, I got a nice, fitting length. But there was one problem. Despite the legs being shorter than planned, he was very unsteady. Therefore I made a stand for him. Attached 2 pieces of wood to 8 90 degree angle braces to form a pair of cross braces. I then threaded the legs onto the pieces of wood and Bender is very steady. You can even push him with him falling over. After the platform was made, everything went like a dream. Just putting the parts right in. I can thank myself for this due to careful planning and taking my time with the project. It actually took 3 months longer than planned. Finished result. One button is for power, the other is Bender's voice button: " Bite My Shiny Metal :)". That's all. After everything was in place, it was finally time for Bender to pose for the camera. http://www.youtube.com/embed/3l0vYdytbHg
