Alrighty, well I'm too lazy to flip it so I'm going to leave it as is. Thanks for the help though!

If you flip it, it will look a bit off, because... well, it is flipped. But if it is too much of an inconvenience to have it on your left arm: All files need to be flipped to make a mirrored version.

Hey, if i were to modify this to go on my right arm (because I'm a left handed person) what pieces would i need to flip, or would i just have to flip all the files?

Assemble using glue and 5 M4 cylindrical screws and 2 M3 cylindrical screws.

Paint it as you like.

For everyone that wants to experiment with the model, improve on it or modify it for different use: I have included the Step file of the original shapemodel. This way you can modify the original to suit your need.

If you build or modify one, please share and credit. I love to see what other people can do with my models.

(I do not own any of the original design, they belong to Bethesda Softworks. I do own this model.)

I would like to modify this design to house a Raspberry Pi, a 3.5" TFT display and a small buck converter. Any thoughts? Has anybody already done this?

GhostMinion on Feb 24, 2014 said:

Well, I'm not sure if the person (she) IS actually going to be selling them or not.............long story. But I will pass along the message and see if she will send you a PM.

GhostMinion on Feb 24, 2014 said:

Hey dragonator, damn fine job here!!!! Wanted to ask you something......... I'm a member at the RPF prop forum, and a member of our forum is advertising to sell casted copies of your pip boy model. Did you give this person permission to do so? If not, do you wish for this person to stop?

dragonator on Feb 24, 2014 said:

I did give someone permission to sell parts but to my knowledge he was already done with his batch. Can you ask him to PM me? I personally don't care if people sell it (I posted it freely for everyone to use) but I do want to keep track. I plan on selling 3D printed kits myself in a month, but that won't be in the way of anyone else's attempt.

EAGON on Feb 20, 2014 said:

this file is amazing! It fits so well together, I will post pics of mine soon!

Gregulimy on Jan 16, 2014 said:

How would I upsize this so it could fit a 6-inch phone in it?

tarka51 on Dec 23, 2013 said:

Also can u squeze a rasberry pi in this as im goning to try?

tarka51 on Jan 22, 2014 said:

that sucks, still i might give it a try

dragonator on Dec 26, 2013 said:

The green paint I don't know, as you see I failed to get the right paint and painted it copper.

As for the PI, might be tight. A screen might fit, but a screen AND a PI I fear will not fit.

tarka51 on Dec 23, 2013 said:

can any one tell me where i can find a green paint that is close engouh to the in game pip boy?

advil on Mar 5, 2014 said:

I put this reply on the wrong comment yesterday and just realized it..
Don't know how close it would be to in game but Krylon makes a flat green that is fairly close to olive drab. I'm planning this project in the near future and will be trying to make it look like painted metal. First paint everything silver and let that set up real good, then top coat it with green and rub some off around the edges to give it a warn look.

Ansarum on Dec 23, 2013 said:

just as a head up for anyone that likes this object someone downloaded and reposed this thing! Please report /thing:210966 as a copy of this thing!

Thankyou I will post my version when it is finished

Lman on Dec 20, 2013 said:

Im thinking of building one of these but i have one question. If i wanted to add a small speaker for my phone to play music would there be enough room?

dragonator on Dec 20, 2013 said:

There is a lot of space in the top of the Pip-Boy, behind the smartphone. Depending on the size of your speaker, there should be enough space.

fattox4189 on Dec 10, 2013 said:

So can someone confirm the dimensions of the screen? I'll be building one of these pups for Supanova in Brisbane Nov 2014, and need to start organising myself now with parts lists etc. I saw in the comments 115x59x15mm, does that hold true?

tarka51 on Dec 15, 2013 said:

pretty much what you got screen is 115mm diagonal

tarka51 on Dec 15, 2013 said:

give me a min and i will messure it for you

CharlieT23 on Dec 7, 2013 said:

I really want to print this, but for the whole thing to be amazing I really need to find the android app that simulates the device. I know its out there as seen it in videos but cannot locate it. Any help?

Kiah on Jan 18, 2014 said:

I've seen a decent looking one here; http://mymagicpudding.blogspot... that uses in-game assets.
But haven't had a chance to use it yet.

TCorgard on Dec 3, 2013 said:

question is there anyway I can get a scaled up version of the files? I buddy wants me to print him one, but his forearms are too big for the current model. I could resize them in makerware, But i don't know if the scale up will be universal between the parts. I think each half of the base is 115.3mm (4.53") Can it be increased to 120.65mm (4.75") That gives an extra 1/2" to the overall diameter of the base shell that goes around the arm.

CrazyJaw on Sep 29, 2013 said:

where did you pick up the pic628? I am having a hard time finding it...

dragonator on Sep 30, 2013 said:

It's pretty easy to get in the Netherlands but I wouldn't know where to get it anywhere else. Also I use uncommon programming tool to program the pic, you would be better of if you picked something a bit simpler, like an arduino microcontroller. You can also just use the microcontroller on an arduino, taking it of the board. There are plenty of tutorials on how to do that.

(If you are really set on using a pic though, pic628(A)'s have been replaced with the newer pic648(A). 628 is an outdated microcontroller.)

tgramith11 on Sep 26, 2013 said:

raspberry pi?

ashapiro350 on Sep 19, 2013 said:

What I need to know is: can I print this in a printer with a 6"x6"x6" build volume?

TCorgard on Dec 3, 2013 said:

You should not have an issue. I know of people that have printed this on printers with that build envelope. I did mine on a Replicator, and I only use about that same area.

gust242 on Aug 24, 2013 said:

hello all this looks sweet good work. does any one offer a pre made led lights for the pipboy ? im not good at making any thing that complex thanks

avanhalem on Aug 23, 2013 said:

I just had this printed by http://www.makexyz.com/printer... and it's awesome. Working on it this weekend to assemble. Pics coming soon!

dbc1218 on Aug 24, 2013 said:

Thanks Adrienne, this is Doug from makexyz. The Pip-Boy parts came out real well. If anyone else would like to have me make them a Pip-Boy 3000, based on dragonator's model, contact me through makexyz http://www.makexyz.com/printer...

tnsullivan on Aug 21, 2013 said:

This is totally awesome, and I want to make one, but I have a few quick questions:
1.) How many cm^3 is this thing? I want to send it to a public printer, and thats how they charge, and i dont know how to figure it out, as I cant open the files myself.
2.) What size phone does it hold, and how easy is it to change the size it would take?
Thanks a ton in advance, and I cant wait to make one!

dragonator on Aug 21, 2013 said:

1.) Including glove, around 700cm^3. The glove is 70cm^3.
2.) It should hold at least an Iphone 4, or roughly 115mm by 59mm by 15mm tall. And impossible. The hole for the phone is as big as it is safely going to be.

boomdaddymaxwell on Aug 16, 2013 said:

im using replicator G on the replicator 2 and i had an issue with the back part 3 where it only builds to like 47 minutes so ill try again

boomdaddymaxwell on Aug 16, 2013 said:

wait never
mind i had a corrupt file

TIMON44PGT on Aug 15, 2013 said:

Thank you so much man, and thank you for including the original file, it makes modifying it to fit and make tunnels for wiring really easy.

TCorgard on Aug 9, 2013 said:

I think I have found a small enough 5 position rotary switch to install behind the knob that will make the pipboy function abit better as a prop. Going to purchase one for $14 and see how it goes. getting ready to assemble mine once the paint sets up

Puck on Aug 7, 2013 said:

Anyone currently working on the hand plate? I'm thinking of doing it but I'm pretty slow as I'm a n00b and don't want to start if someone else is.

dragonator on Aug 8, 2013 said:

I'm not currently working on the glove, but I think I have time for it this weekend. It should not take anymore than 4 hours to draw.

sniper4395 on Aug 4, 2013 said:

Dragonator your such a master! Love your work!

Just started printing, but so far "base front Screen left bottom" also seems to need support. I'll update later if any other unmentioned parts need support.
Slic3r 0.9.10b on modified PrintrBot

sniper4395 on Aug 7, 2013 said:

So i have everything but the back printed so far. Is it just me or is "Pip boy 3000 base front Screen left center" too short? maybe it's just my printer, but it printed about a quarter inch too short on the side that connects to the Left Top. looks like the STL got cut off. Maybe it just didn't slice correctly. Everything else seems to be coming out perfectly.

TCorgard on Aug 1, 2013 said:

ever thought of modeling the hand plate that goes with the pip-boy?

dragonator on Aug 1, 2013 said:

I have, but lack of time prevented me from designing it, I might do it some time soon but currently I am busy with another fallout project that goes well with the Pip-Boy.

Pandatron on Jul 28, 2013 said:

I looked one up on ebay: Came up to $300
Nopenopenope
Might try my hand at printing this after all xD

GameProps on Aug 22, 2013 said:

Try eBay seller tmoody2008

Pandatron on Jul 28, 2013 said:

I don't think I have the time or patience to paint/print this. Could you please sell them on like etsy or ebay? XD
I don't think the Replicator 2 would be able to get too good of quality on this

Pandatron on Jul 28, 2013 said:

Whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Also @GameProps I believe that is a jailbroken app on the iPhone, I've seen it elsewhere.

EDIT: Just found this after some research, hope it helps

GameProps on Jul 25, 2013 said:

Where did you find the Pip-Boy app at?

Sprayer3D on Jul 21, 2013 said:

What parts do you advise adding supports to

dragonator on Jul 21, 2013 said:

Base front base, Base front light, Back part 2 and base front wheel if I am not mistaken. Those parts really need it, other parts might need some if bridging doesn't work well or if the printer can't handle steep angles.

wgss on Jul 17, 2013 said:

DUDE!! Absolutely amazing work. It's motivated me to get started on my Cowboys vs Aliens wrist blaster...

Has anyone had issues printing base_front_base? My makerbot "exploded" overnight on the top part with the big overhang... Might have been a fluke. Just wondering if anyone used support for this piece?

Thanks again,

Sprayer3D on Jul 13, 2013 said:

Where did you get the led lights from.

dragonator on Jul 13, 2013 said:

They are ordinary 5mm leds that have the round part sanded of.

DomesticHacks on Jul 11, 2013 said:

How did you sliced the model into smaller parts before printing?

dragonator on Jul 11, 2013 said:

I made a complete model in solidworks, then copied it a dozen times into different files. Then I remove everything from every part that is not needed. It may not be elegant, but it works just fine.

wgss on Jul 11, 2013 said:

I read support needed, any ideas which parts need support?

krugerdude on Jul 10, 2013 said:

Any chance of getting the solidwork files?
P.S. this is super awesome, I've just finished printing all the parts and need to assemble it and pretty it up.

dragonator on Jul 10, 2013 said:

I added the Solidworks 2012 file of the Pip-Boy. It is not exactly the same as the printed version, I don't work that way. It is one solid part with the whole Pip-Boy and some minor things are different.

I usually make one shapemodel of the whole thing, then convert it into printable parts, making minor modifications. This is the latest shapemodel before I started converting it.

TCorgard on Jul 10, 2013 said:

ever thought of adding the Pip-boy and model 3000 to the speaker cover?

dragonator on Jul 10, 2013 said:

I did, but there is not enough resolution in any printer to make that visible. The letters are really small and I doubt that anything other than industrial printers could even make it visible.

Marcella on Jul 8, 2013 said:

What number of infill do you use? Thanks

dragonator on Jul 8, 2013 said:

I don't see how that is important for replicating this, but I guess around 40%. Up! software doesn't give percentages.

TCorgard on Jul 2, 2013 said:

what printer do you use?

TCorgard on Jul 3, 2013 said:

cool means it will work on my Replicator

xlyric on Jul 3, 2013 said:

dragonator on Jul 3, 2013 said:

UP! plus

d00gan on Jul 2, 2013 said:

What phone was used for the screen?

dragonator on Jul 2, 2013 said:

I suppose that I didn't mention that. It is a Samsung Galaxy (the original). A sponge pushes it to the front.

dwild on Jul 1, 2013 said:

This is amazing. How much would you sell the print? I don't have a 3D printer (I'm building one but it's far from being able to print something like this) and Shapeway gave a quote of 840$.

Hi, Great Job! looks incredible, what printer did you use? hopefully i can print one with my small build area... :P

yzorg on Jun 29, 2013 said:

Awesome!
gonna make this.. will use a lot of fake rust coating to make it look super ancient.

peter_ on Jun 29, 2013 said:

wow, really well done!

droidjsmith on Jun 29, 2013 said:

Frickin' BEAUTIFUL. I definitely plan to print this, currently printing your lamp. I'm a bit concerned about scaling it, as I'm pretty sure your arm is smaller than mine. I'd like to try and get the scale right before I start printing; can you post the current scale's wrist and forearm diameter so that I can scale correctly? Thanks for sharing!!

dragonator on Jun 29, 2013 said:

Wrist is 75mm, forearm is 90mm. The scale is based on the original Pip-Boy. But yes, it is slightly small, at this scale, I couldn't make it larger.

Claydiz on Jun 29, 2013 said:

I looked to see what else you made and saw that you are the guy who made Glados and realized your just too much cool awesomeness wrapped into one.

Conseils on Jun 28, 2013 said:

Arghhh not enough filament..
Such torture.

fredspringer on Jun 28, 2013 said:

I like seeing things that have actually been printed. This website is being overrun by posts of 3d drawings which the OP didn't even bother to see how well it prints. Good job on this.

Idiomatic on Jun 28, 2013 said:

A lot of people don't have a printer.
