Just a quick project I finished up this weekend. I’m a big fan of the Portal series and had printed a companion cube (an iconic ‘character’ from the game) earlier but was unhappy with the droll, boring off-white color of ABS Thermoplastic. So I broke out my paint and brushes and breathed some life into my little cube. Now, mind you, I suck at painting, but it was still a fun project. If you’ve got access to a 3D printer of some kind, hit up this link to the STL file of the Companion Cube on Thingiverse (thanks to emonk for the file). I spray painted the base gray and painted the other parts by hand. I’m sure yours will look better, so if you do something like this with a 3D printed piece, send me your image and I’ll add it to the gallery!
