Portal & Reddit inspired Book end. by imaterialise Jan 3, 2011

Featured Thing!

Description

Because some of us are obsessed by Portal, we had seen this awesome Portal Bookend on Reddit. reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/d8ezm/my_friend_had_access_to_a_cnc_table_and_spare

So we asked Nicolas de Jaegre to make a Portal inspired bookend fit for 3D printing. We haven't 3D printed this design ourselves, so sorry about that. We hope you enjoy it though.

The curves are really high resolution, too - those ripples on the entrance/exit portal really add up!

Duplicate faces. I certainly hope. 8 meg for flat boxes and a stick figure seems a little much. Methinks a swipe with a mesh simplifier might also be in order.

I'm not sure what's up with the boxes but the figure is inside them - just remove the outer boxes. This might also benefit from a trip to netfabb or some such. There are a number of duplicate faces in here..

Great idea but a couple of problems. First, the STL doesn't match the picture shown above (it's just some merged boxes) and secondly, the orientation is wrong (I did this two before, Front is actually top view and visa versa in the CAD program). The latter is easy to fix since most of the 3d printing software gives the ability to reorient objects before printing.
