    I’ve been wondering for awhile “Couldn’t people just extract assets from popular games and print their own props/action figures?”  I guess I have my answer now.

      yup was wondering same thing. this also made me think people will now pretty much be able to print off their own action figures / collectables. so i spose sales of those might decline soon. of course hardcore collectors will continue but average joe might rather reprap one out quickly.

    I wanted the gun to be as accurate as possible, so I used 3D printed parts that were ripped directly from the game files!

    Brilliant! We’re definitely living in the future.

  8. I already have the ‘gun’ of my dreams.

    I looked through the links a bit, but couldn’t determine — what kind of 3D printer were these parts made on?

    This is really impressive. You should get together with Chris Myles who has a great video tutorial for 3d printed Personality Spheres from Portal 2.

  13. While the game’s gun was actually scanned from a real portal gun.

  14. This is cool but I dont think this is fully extracted model from the game…..viewing the 3d prints from shapeways

  15. where do you find the model in the game files? I’ve looked but I can’t find it

    EDIT- I found it, but it looks like it’s a .si0 file, and I have no idea how to open it, can anyone help me?
