We are in the process of creating a line of very unique charging stations that will allow you to show off your true nerd inside. This one is the 1st of our line that we created that we think any true fan will like and no lawyer will destroy.

This idea came from watching two of our favorite shows.. pretty much the idea sparked when i saw the blue meth getting cracked into trays and poured into storage containers.. Then imagining making a dock from a pile of blue meth.. Then i was like "I could make that" after much work and rethinking this pile of blue meth idea became this Blue Meth Throne.

Since the last throne we made was taken down we wanted to create a very unique throne that would be inspired by our favorite shows but not infringing on any copyright or whatever excuses lawyers can come up with.  So if you haven't figure out which shows this throne is inspired from then you should start catching up on some TV seasons  ASAP.

Anyways last time i got a little excited and released the 3d printed throne when it was a very early prototype and needed a lot of work in hopes of winning a 3D printer. Something that a lot of people didn't realize and were very judgemental of our prototype. This time around we waited to we were done with our Blue Meth Throne. We already 3D printed, hand detailed it, Made a Silicone / hard shell mold and poured 6 clear plastic thrones. We also tested the throne with Iphone 3G/s, 4G/s, 5 Android S2 S3 with and without some popular cases and bumpers.

We made several video detailing the process we went through to make this so you guys can make your own if you want to. or you can visit my website where you can purchase one

In this case we used Maya for most of the modeling and meshlab to convert files to .STLs. The yellow dots in the 3rd graphic are non manifold, intersecting geometry, holes or stuff that is really bad for 3d printing. So besides 3d modeling you will need to clean all of this dots till you have none left (painful process)

Did you use crystal clear? Be aware that it's extremely hazardous and releases hydrogen cyanide gas. I'm sure you took proper precaution when handling whatever material you used. I just wanted to warn people. Crystal clear is no joke and can seriously harm you.

That's a PERFECT instructions for not using other glue or stuff,and recycling the scraps :)

p.s. Wow,that Wacom tablet ;)
solid results! this is were the true value of 3d printing is realized, mold making is a lost art to most people so people usually just try to crank out stuff on printers and expect it to work but with this method you could easily cast things out of metal. I see this instructable valuable to the community because of how clearly you have demonstrated this line of thinking

3D printing is awesome.. but when it comes to large objects and different materials it's still not comparable to mold making. A print this detailed took about 50 hours, not including gluing, detailing and removing support material.. Also none of the 3d printed material could be this strong nor have this look.. So i definetly love mold making.. I really put a lot of effort in this instructable and try to grab as much in video for my fellow DIYers.. thanks for the comment
