3D printed Sentry Gun from Team Fortress 2 #3dthursday

3D printed Sentry Gun from Team Fortress 2 from 3Ders.org:

Psychobob, creator of 3D printed Atlas co-op bot, has a lot of experience creating awesome 3D models of game characters and pieces. His Atlas from Portal 2 impressed us with all the amazingly details. Now Psychobob is back with another new 3D printed project, something a little different this time: the Sentry guns from Team Fortress 2.

The idea Psychobob has come up with on this project is actually that the gun can be upgraded from level 1. The sentry is split up into 3 separate “products” and just like in the game, you can’t build a level 3 gun without first building/upgrading the previous leveled guns. Psychobob has designed it so none of the gun requires glue to assemble so you can always be able to upgrade later by adding an upgrade pack.

For raising funds for his next project, Psychobob is selling this model on Shapeways. All the models come unpainted and Psychobob shows you on his blog how he painted and applied the finishes to the parts….

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
