This is my version of the Weighted Companion Cube from Portal. I built the model from scratch, using photos of the cube from the game as reference, then texture mapped it to match the one from the game.

I've made it into a hollow box, which you can use to store small stuff, like keys, secret maps, wedding rings, plutonium, ect.

You should get it printed in Color Sandstone, as it comes completely colored, no painting required! If you really want to paint it, I would suggest you get a "White, Strong, Flexible" print of my other Companion Cube model, as it makes a tougher and more easily paint-able Cube. You will need some form of Glue to put this version of the Cube together as well.

It's hard to see, but I put a faint picture of the Cake inside the box.

Included this in an article for Coin Arcade about 3D-printed Portal items. Great work. http://coinarcade.org/2013/03/25/these-3d-printed-portal-items-will-blow-your-mind/

Rubber Cement will hold this material together nicely, but you have to double coat it, ie put on one coat, let that sink into the material, then do another coat to actually stick the pieces together. All of Shapeways items are created from powder (expect for the clear plastic stuff). Because they are made from powder, they are porous, and tend to soak up the first coat of an adhesive. You need to saturate them, so enough remains on the surface to make a good bound.
