Portal Gun Before and After by techgeekgirl Portal Gun Before and After by techgeekgirl
Reblog/like on Tumblr! [link]

In case you didn't already know, the reason my portal gun is so accurate is because many of the parts were 3D printed. However, it doesn't mean it was a piece of cake to put together! The pieces I received in the mail were rough (to say the least).

The picture on the left is the back shell after I applied the first coat of primer, and the picture on the right is the final product


Here's a video of it in action: [link]

Here's another photo:

I purchased the shells from Shapeways: [link]

Actually, it's 3D-printed nylon that I painted with grey primer :aww:

What did you do, exactly, to get it so smooth in the end? Any specific sort of paint process?

Let's just say between this shell and the front shell I used A LOT of primer (the shells absorbed it like a sponge!) And after a few coats I would go over it with progressively finer grit sandpaper. At the very end I was using 2000 grit wet/dry sandpaper (usually used for clear-coats on cars)
