Claptrap from Borderlands!

3D model description

Who doesn't love a good Claptrap? Well lots of people I guess, but I really like this little guy. His antics kept me entertained through the Borderlands games so I knew that I wanted to create one of these for myself.

I created the model in Fusion 360. I used sketches almost exclusively to create this. I started out by lofting two sketches together to get the main body shape. Then I just proceeded to sketch out all the details I could see. I resized as I went to make sure everything looked proportional.

Watch here:

After it I printed it out (settings below), I handed it off to my wife who sanded the crap out of it, glued it together, primed it, and painted it using a combination of spray paint, airbrush, and paintbrush techniques.

Print Settings:
Printer: Robo 3D R1
Filament: Hatchbox PLA
Layer Height: 0.1mm
Infill: 20%
Supports/Raft: Yes

  • 3D file format: STL
