Portal (Valve Software - Orange Box) Go out and buy it! Then you will understand why you might want a companion cube. So after several hours of game play gone, Its time to fire up Inventor and make my own companion cube.
Step 1: Inventor
Created in Inventor 2008, now that I have the solid model it's time to create sides to print out.
Step 2: 3x2cube-proto-01
O.k. enough rendering it's time to print!
I sliced the cube to six sides and layed the sides out on a 3 X 2 grid. Total RP printing time 7.2 hrs
Step 3: Cheap Led Light
Take one cheap LED $2.50 flash light and dremel cut everything but lights off add 3 ohm resistor to a cut off USB cord add a little hot glue and bobs your uncle you have a USB light! ( I know crappy photo)
Step 4: Let There Be Light
Hot glue the sides together and... Let there be
Light! Now when ever my computer is on I will be comforted by the glow of my little companion cube
