Weighted Companion Cube (garage kit version 2)

  • White

    White nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.


Separated, pre-pinned pieces for easy painting & assembly. Modeled from scratch. I've yet to hold the printed version in my hands, so while on paper the pieces should fit together, I've yet to test the actuality. I also need to asses whether I went too far in hollowing out the pieces. I'll update this listing with photos etc when I do, or make a revision if necessary.

NEW IN VERSION 2: Aperture Science logo stencil provided so that the cube can be built as a standard (non-companion) cube. Cube body is now a single, solid object with totally revised pins. Holes allow it to be be filled with casting resin. $70-$80 less expensive. I AM NOT FAMILIAR WITH HOW WELL THE "STRONG AND FLEXIBLE" MATERIAL WILL WORK WITH THE VERY THIN PIECES IN THIS KIT. Order that material at your own risk and... let me know.

Im new to this whole 3d printing thing but I've noticed everything is just so damn small. What I want is a final product of a 14" by 14" companion cube. I could make the main cube myself no problem but I would like to get the corners, center pieces and discs for this cube 3d printed. Is there anyway to make this happen or would even those pieces be too big in this situation?

The only thing I'd see as an issue is the layout for the 3D file. Putting things closer together can reduce costs.

It prints fine in "White Detail". The cube is filled with support material, since it's basically impossible for the Shapeways staff to remove it by hand. I forgot to consider that when designing it. However the cube is pretty solid anyway, so it's actually convenient that your companion cube comes pre-"weighted". The corner pieces cover the holes.
