A 3D Printed Orville Comscanner

The Orville’s fancy handheld communications and scanning device is called a comscanner. It looks a lot like similar sci-fi devices with its pop out screen and what looks like a high-tech interface. Replica Prop Forum (RPF) user Shipbrook made a replica based on the one in the show using a 3D printer. They say:

Here’s my version of the Comscanner from The Orville. Modeled in Blender, printed on an Ultimaker 2+, sanded, painted, and assembled.

Apart from the 3D-printed parts, I used Lexan for the screens, graphics drawn in Inkscape and printed on laser transparency sheets, and the electronic components to light them up. And a couple of springs.

See more photos of the build in this thread.

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.
