These 3D-Printed Portal Items Will Blow Your Mind

3D Printed GLaDOS3D printers are rapidly going to change our world over the coming years when they become even more commercialised and even more accessible to the general public. That’s no different than for people interested in video game merchandise and models, with 3D printer owners capable of creating the kind of video game models with relative ease that you’d usually expect to be paying up to £1,000 for from big-name sculptors.

Below is a gallery containing pictures of 3D-printed Portal items and oh my God, they’re going to blow your freakin’ mind. Here’s what you’ll see there, in order:

  • GLaDOS robotic ceiling arm lamp (created by Instructables user Dragonator with an Up! 3D printer)
  • Portal gun, matching the quality of NECA’s version (created by deviantART user Techgeekgirl)
  • Atlas Statue (created by Psychobob)
  • Various purchasable Portal-themed rings – including GLaDOS, Wheatley, Rick Adventure, Fact Core and Space Core (created by Shapeways user Ammnra)
  • Portal Turret miniature figure (created by Shapeways user Chamoo232)
  • LEGO Portal gun and Companion Cube pieces (created by Shapeways user MINGLES)
  • A Companion Rubik’s Cube — and Companion Cube box that can be used as awedding ring box (created by Shapeways user MaxSMoke777)

Credit goes to those who created these brilliant creations, be sure to use the links in the list above to check them and their other works out!

  1. Thanks for the post about my sandstone box, but I did actually make something even more interesting then that… http://www.shapeways.com/model/304961/companion-rubiks-cube-kit-v1a.html (Some assembly required!)

    • Darn, how did I miss that?

      No matter, that is pretty interesting so I’ve added that into the article as well. Thanks for the heads-up!
