Intro: Rapidprototyped Weighted <DEL>Companion</DEL> Storage Cube

I modeled it in SolidWorks and used the rapid prototype machine at school to make it. More info on the 3D printer can be found here

Full sized photos can be found at my flickr album

If you liked this please digg it

I uploaded the .sldprt and .stl files for the project in this forum post. For those of you who do not have SolidWorks, you can get the e-drawings file (wcc.exe) instead. Just download it and open it - no special programs needed.

    Never played Portal, and couldn't care less about the premiss of the companion cube, but this rocks. Very cool idea. Too bad 3D printers are so expensive, still... hmmm. You, sir, recieve the Rock Lee thumbs up for this. lol

    scientists rigged a normal printer to print with bacteria and now they're trying to use 3d printing to print human hearts etc.

    Thanks. You really should try Portal - best 2 hours of gaming I've had in a while and easily in my top 5 best games ever.

    Zorink, I love the slide show. I actually work for Dimension 3D Printing and am amazed at what the printers can do. Right now I am printing a model of the Ra VII the Solar Car from Principia College that took 2nd place in the Solar Challenge. If you can design it, these printers can typically build it. Thanks!
