Shelley’s weapon of choice was a 7 inch serrated kitchen knife. For example, our Chell (Michelle) is 5’6”, so our gun is about 20 inches from the back of the large shell to the tip of the barrel, not counting the claws. If there are too many pockmarks in the shell, the spackling easily fills in cracks and divets and is incredibly easy to sand off! Bondo is a curious, curious substance. Plexiglass – amount unknown; we didn’t keep track because we had a near unlimited source. It’s still holding us) Florists Foam (The largest we could find was about 3’x1’x4”, and it worked pretty well once we cut it in half and glued the halves together) Superglue Drywall Spackling Gesso (a very bright white canvas primer) Craploads of sandpaper, from grits 80-600. How much of it? Now you can proceed with painting! So, you’re ready to start? We searched stores high and low for a long enough tube that was 2 ½” in diameter – but nothing was the right size or long enough. There are 8 polygons per plate, with one plate at each end of the cylinder. As long as you have a steady hand, this should be pretty straightforward… even though staying inside the lines with a destructive instrument that is spinning at a high velocity is, admittedly, somewhat nerve-wracking! ©2020 e.World Technology Limited. These Portal 2 Personality cores created by Chris Myles are all the goodness of Portal 2 wrapped up in fully functional replicas of the characters that hamper and help you throughout your adventure in the Aperture Science facility. Here's a more or less complete list: Core: 4” diameter PVC pipe 3” diameter PVC pipe 2 4” PVC couplers Lots o’ Cardstock (We managed to use about a 30”x24” sheet over the course of the gun) About a gallon of Bondo + extra hardener (We blew through two quart containers and then gave up and bought a gallon. Adobe Capture Going 3D With New Scantastic Feature, CAD Exchanger Adds CATIA, DWG, U3D, FBX Support, How to Hide Your House From Google Street View. He is a SolidWorks Certified Professional and excels at falling awkwardly. By the way, BEWARE MINI GRASSHOPPERS!!! Originally I had a nicely thought out plan of having two plates that screwed into each other so I could make the electronics panel removable so I could access the batteries, but the screws ended up stripping the plastic! 1 2 3. The first time we used it, we didn’t add anywhere near enough hardener – we filled in the entire front core and none of it hardened. Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures of the funky triangular heads, but I do have a template for the pieces! “When attempting to assemble the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, make sure you use the designated Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device Assembly Apparatus as designated by the Aperture Science Machinery Process Designation Manual.” ~ GLaDOS When we started this project, we had no real intentions of writing up our processes anywhere, so pictorial documentation is sadly lacking. If you’ve got a breadboard, more power to ya – I used cardstock and stripped CAT5 cable. He is involved in engineering, design, visualization, the technology making it happen, and the content developed around it. I’ve got a few pictures, but I’ll try to explain it as well. As with the others, make sure that every LED has a resistor attached and is attached securely to whatever surface you’re working on, whether it be breadboard of cardboard or whatever. I believe we put on four or five layers of Gesso. This part is pretty straightforward.
