Zero Point Energy Field Manipulator (Gravity Gun) 1:1 Scale by Pink_Iguanas Mar 4, 2013

Description

This gravity gun (from half life)is accurate (as much as I could make it) and just all around awesome looking. It is sliced into multiple pieces, to make printing easier, and so that it can be as close to 1:1 scale it can be, and I am now proud to say that it is, in fact, 1:1 scale. SImilar to pleppik's portal gun, this is a gargantuan project, and will take a while, if you are brave enough to try. Enjoy.

I think the claw's supposed to be 790%.

One more question, should the claw hinge be printed at 800%? According to the instructions it should but I'm looking at the model in cura right now, and it looks a bit big.

Yeah, I've definitely had those problems. It's usually just a glitch as far as could tell, but I did get it eventually. My best advice is to carefully monitor some of the larger pieces, because they have a tendency to make the filament stop, but just to the point where you can feed it through again. A couple of the pieces on mine are actually missing a few layers. I'm so glad your making this, and good luck, for what it's worth.

Instructions

Scale every piece except the front body pieces to 800%. Scale the front body pieces to 780% and any pins or claws directly attached to it to 790%. Requires no support. Warning: Some of these pieces will take up your entire platform if you are using a Replicator 1, but they do not go any farther than that. Assembly requires glue for all pins except those on the claws. For assembly instructions, look at the file labeled "Assembly_instructions".

Is there a list of which parts are needed to print? I'm sure all of them are, but I notice that there are 3 claws, but only 1 claw model.

Yes. I'm sorry about that. All the pieces should only be printed once, except the pins, each of which should be printed twice, all the claw pieces, each of which should be printed three times, and the claw hinge, which should be printed six times.

Alright, sweet. I've gotten half of the barrel printed already, and have failed multiple times getting the gun_base_left_2 to print. Most of it is my fault, because of some faulty settings and my bed not heating up, but I'm having an issue where the model prints to a certain height, and then starts printing at an offset. Its like it starts printing a few inches to the right, instead of on top of the model itself. I just re-sliced it, and I'm printing again now, but I was wondering if you had any issues like that?
