‘Fallout’ Fans Can Still Get A 3D Printed Pip-Boy [Video]


If you missed your chance to grab a Pip-Boy with your copy of Fallout 4, worry not—you can still get one 3D printed. You can make your own with the 3D models and instructions, or you can have one printed for you. There’s even a 20% discount on every Pip-Boy print through November 13th.

3D Hubs notes:

Thankfully, 23-year-old mechanical engineer Yvo de Haas of Ytec3D took matters into his own hands and used his SolidWorks skills to 3D model a custom 3D printable version of the Pip-Boy 3000 Mark IV. The impressive design assembly features 38 parts that are optimized for FDM 3D printing and is customizable for different wrist sizes and smartphones ranging from the latest iPhone 6S models to various Android and Windows phones.

To make 3D printing the Pip-Boy as seamless as possible, we’ve already pre-loaded all of the necessary 3D printing files into three ‘3D Hubs Print-Ready Kits’ designed for small, medium, and large-sized smartphones. These kits include optimized original design files for 3D printing through the 3D Hubs network of nearly 24,000 3D printers around the world.

All of the parts have been assembled for single orders, so all you have to do is order the pieces that are designed for your particular phone and select where you’d like the pieces printed out.

Naturally, there’s a catch. A couple in fact.

For larger phones, the printing process can get expensive (and the prices can vary wildly). It’s also up to you to assemble and paint your new Pip-Boy.
