    Project Halcyon: Making functional Halo props with lights, wires, and a bit of spit-shine [HELP WANTED]

    Alright, update time! and that means a couple more exploded weapons! Now, onto the project itself. The 405th really came through for me and almost immediately after starting this thread i had a few people replying or messaging me directly offering me help. I teamed up with tahu505, put...

    Project Halcyon: Making functional Halo props with lights, wires, and a bit of spit-shine [HELP WANTED]

    Man... Meshmixer and i have a bit of a complicated history. not a fan of my 3D modeling programs randomly mangling my models during import. But i'll see what kind of hollowing functions it has to offer. Also good to hear you're on a similar wavelength with the magnum. i've got the whole Halo 5...

    Project Halcyon: Making functional Halo props with lights, wires, and a bit of spit-shine [HELP WANTED]

    Hey 405th, wanna see an AR Explode? Now that i have you're attention, allow me to introduce my new project. way back in 2016, I accidentally became the guy who is now responsible for ~99% of the 3D printed halo props in the world. That was absolutely not planned, by the way. i was just trying...

    Yeah, figured that was (once again) the source of all my problems. i compressed the images and everything is going smoothly now. thank you though!

    Props "I Need A Weapon" - CnC Props For Mold Making and Casting [VOTE INSIDE]

    Jesus... lemme just blow the dust off my copy of the necronomicon and resurrect this thread... Looks like things got pretty damn busy over the summer and this project got pushed by the wayside (ironically a majority of my free time over the summer that was devoted to this project got eaten up...

    Hey, just a heads up, i went to update one of my threads, uploaded a bunch of pictures, and they just show up as blank thumbnails with no option to insert them into the reply or anything. i moved the pictures into different folders, restarted my computer, restarted my browser, even deleted the...

    Welcome to the community! if you're looking for 3D printable Halo props, you can check out this download thread, which is mirrored on Thingiverse as well! I'd be happy to help with any other 3D printing-specific modeling questions you might have!

    Props "I Need A Weapon" - CnC Props For Mold Making and Casting [VOTE INSIDE]

    the $400 -$500 would be for all the materials needed, which would make a ton of props. this certainly isn't a set price, but i could see the AR going for $150-$175. the smaller stuff like magnum and SMG would be roughly half that, the bigger stuff might hit $200. just some rough estimates since...

    Whoof! the missile pod is a BIG sucker! i don't think you'd like the price if i went through with making it. And speaking of price/costs, I don't have a solid number yet. the MDF wood used to make this stuff is pretty damn pricey considering the volume i'm using (24" by 48" by 3", four boards...

    Hello 405th! i'm back with another prop project for y'all! this one will have more community involvement, more pictures, and more advanced tech! So, to start, this entire project came around because my University (previously featured in my 3D Printed Props thread) gave me access to this A B S...

    Old farts: sound off!

    Man... i remember the summer of 2011 or 2012 where the 405th just... ceased to exist. it was server issues or admin abandonment or something. typing in 405th.com just gave you a blank page (i know because i checked in almost weekly to see if it was back up). crazy times, man.
