#3DPrint Your Own Pip-Boy 3000

pip-boy replica 1

If you missed out on pre-ordering Bethesda’s replica of the Pip-Boy 3000 Mark IV from Fallout 4, it doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. Yvo de Haas has come up with a free to download model that you can 3D print, assemble, and paint. This is fantastic news if you’re a cosplayer in need of a Pip-Boy to wear on your wrist. But even if you’re not planning to dress as a character from the game, the finished Pip-Boy would look awfully nice on a shelf. The below video shows how the device works and how a smart phone fits in the front for the display. Haas says:

“The Pip-Boy 3000 Mark IV Phone edition is the version that will be most useful for most people. It can hold (as the name suggests) a phone that is within a certain size range. It is simply a case of printing it to have a usable Pip-Boy. To access the phone, 2 knobs near the tape player allow the front to come off. No tools are required to place and remove the phone (though it still take a half a minute or so). To make room for the phone, some of the buttons have been merged with the body of the Pip-Boy. It does have a latch mechanism and a tape player. The lights on the Pip-Boy can be 3D printed in clear plastic, and can be lit using colored LEDS. The gauges however cannot be lit, there simply isn’t enough room to fit lighting with the phone in the way.”

Learn about the other sizes and versions Haas has available and download the schematics here.
