A fully 3D printable version of the AEP7 Laser Pistol from fallout 3 and New Vegas. It can be printed in around 30 hours and requires 1kg of material. It requires a lot of support and is challenging to print, but the pay-off is most certainly worth it.



All the files to build it can be found at my thingiverse page

It was painted using acrylic paint and weathered with a small paintbrush and black paint. The yellow tube is a piece of coax cable that I painted with yellow paint. All the decals are printed on ordinary paper, glued to the model, then weathered.

It has a working laser diode (else it wouldn't really be a laser pistol). It has a working trigger, functioning energy cells (in the form of 3 AA batteries) that can be reloaded and a potentiometer connected to the knob on the back.

Excellent! I am now playing through Fallout: New Vegas GOTY Edition. I want to see you make one of the plasma rifles, like the Q-35 Matter Modulator - which is also a great-sounding name for a 3D printer, too!

I loved your Pip-Boy 3000. Have you (or anyone you know of) has programmed anything in Android to replicate the Pip-Boy 3000? Is it time to invent the PB-4000?

I have no apps for making your smartphone look like a pip-boy, I just used a picture.

Sadly there are two reasons why I don't want to do rifles (at least any time soon).
1. I have a new job and am busy getting adjusted.
2. Rifles are too large to 3D print. It would take kilos of material and 50-80 hours of printing time.
I saw a tall, triangular "Delta" 3D printer on Kickstarter (The Kossel Clear) that appears to print a lot faster than the standard cube-type XYZ printers and it should be a scalable design that allows for a tall machine that a full rifle stock could be made in. Alternatively, the design could incorporate multiple sections that could fit together in a modular approach, or when replicating one-piece stocks, glue the sections together (duh).

There was a theme on the Google Play store, but it costs money. Here, dropping link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nd.android.pandatheme.p_pip_boy_3000&hl=en

Hey it looked OK, but I don't think that loud buzzing sound when switching between screens is very attractive - but you found it and I appreciate it!

Great Guns of Laser!
Went to my blog, along with a shameless plug for my Laser Ray-Gun:

Hey, where'd you learn how to do such great weathering? Do you know of any tutorials?

I would put a warning sign in my yard saying that I'll shoot at your eyeballs and damage your eyes. I would also warn intruders of my air powered bb gun that could pierce the skin and cause a nasty infection.

That's awesome. I LOVE Fallout 3. Though, I never use laser or plasma weapons.

Yep, I agree with the other folks - that it actually shoots LASERS makes it wonderful. The paint job looks perfect too!

Nice to see an actually working prop. Good working the painting too

I was thinking the same thing. I love props, but the working ones are awesome! Very nice work!
