any chance of you doing commissions
I got a lot of interest from the halo subreddit where i posted the glamor shots. The answer is Yes, just not right now. i only got one printer and as it is its booked with projects for the forseeable future (most of which are more halo guns), so i can't really dedicate it to cranking out more assault rifles. however, i do have the knowledge and resources to do a mold and cast copies. that's be a few months away at least though. either way, keep an eye out, and if anyone else is interested, let me know so i can gauge howmuch interest there is for commissionsany chance of you doing commissions
thanks! big update on the carbine should be coming sometime next weekFinished product looks awesome. Look forward to seeing the next masterpiece
Dude, no joke, i have absolutely no idea how that happened. ALL the reference pictures i've seen have the charging handle on the right, the MODEL that i used has it on the right, but somehow it ended up on the left. I noticed it once the rifle was fully assembled, and i thought i was going insane. I had to go back and check everything. the chunk of rifle that its attached to isn't symmetrical either, so it couldn't have been me gluing it in backwards! i have no idea how it ended up on the left.That looks great! a little too much weathering, but nice indeed!
Also, are you a lefty? your Charging handle is on the right side of the gun...yet you hold it as if you were a righty...what's goin' on...
How about this reference image?ALL the reference pictures i've seen have the charging handle on the right, the MODEL that i used has it on the right
Sorry, i got my rights and lefts mixed up. what i meant was that everything showed it on the LEFT (like your attached pic) for RIGHT handed use. but somehow the Maya 3D modeling gremlins snuck in and switched the charge handle to the RIGHT hand side for LEFT handed use. either way, i caught it too late and its not worth the time to fix for how small of an error it is (despite how weird it is that it happened in the first place) so i'm just gonna leave it.you sure about that?
The charging handle should always (unless it is a left-handed rifle) be on the Left hand side of the rifle, so that your right hand can be holding your gun, and your left hand pulls back the charging handle and loads the bullet into the firing chamber....I'm sure you know stuff about guns, but this is just a recap.
Now...that charging handle is on the Left side of the gun.
You're saying the charging handle is on the left side of the gun. Your pictures tell a different story...
How about this reference image?

Well done on the AR, it looks glorious. And that carbine...epic. Can't wait to see more.
Wow these weapons are beautiful!
Thanks guys! glad people are enjoying my builds.Wow, amazing build.
Not just when we sleep, also when we're at work, and also when we're building other things. Double productivity. Bam.That is soooooo flipping cool!!!! It's huge.....I'm jelly of all of you that have a 3D printer and can make these things in your sleep. W/o the mess-ups that is. Then I have to say what a waste of material......if only you were watching more carefully.....then I chuckle and move on to my tedious building method......dam you all.!!!
Thanks man! that's the crazy thing about these truscale props. everything in halo is bigger than you think. it's what happens when your perspective in almost all of the games is that of a 7 foot tall supersoldier. and as for the wasted filament, a 2kg reel is somewhere between $15-$40, and that reel will get me most of the way through most props, so a bunch of failed prints do suck, but its not breaking the bank. plus, i got lots of artist friends that LOVE getting the weird geometry from half-finished prop prints, so i'm not throwing it away either.That is soooooo flipping cool!!!! It's huge.....I'm jelly of all of you that have a 3D printer and can make these things in your sleep. W/o the mess-ups that is. Then I have to say what a waste of material......if only you were watching more carefully.....then I chuckle and move on to my tedious building method......dam you all.!!!
Literally the best part of 3D printing props. i can make props while i make props!Not just when we sleep, also when we're at work, and also when we're building other things. Double productivity. Bam.
