Since November, the entire gaming community has been going nuts about the fantastic Fallout 4 game, so it’s only logical that this obsession was going to spill over into the realm of 3D printing sooner or later – or just as soon as someone stopped playing for a few hours. And as a tribute to that addictive game, Mark Mosinksi has just shared his 3D printed tribute to the most beloved of all Fallout companions, Mr. Handy Codsworth.

Mr. Codsworth, of course, is the metallic robot butler that is one of the first characters and companions you meet in Fallout 4, and is particularly popular for being able to say your name (provided you chose one from his list). Mosinksi, who is an artist and photographer by day, but a hardcore Fallout fan all day long, really wanted to 3D print a tribute to Fallout. Taking enough time off from visiting the nuked-out landscape of Besthesda’s post-apocalyptic game to build this fantastic 3D printed version of the Sole Survivor’s butler, he just shared the very impressive results on Reddit (where he goes by the handle slavicgrip).

And while some people out there are so busy exploring the game that can barely find the time to sleep, Mosinksi revealed that he actually took over three weeks to complete this process, presumably with Fallout 4 breaks in between sessions. 3D printing actually took up quite a lot of that time, with the full model taking more than 35 hours to complete on his UP Plus 2 3D printer. Much of the rest of the time went into sanding, painting and cleaning the many loose parts that make up the robot. “This was my first actual build with so many moving parts,” Mosinski told the people over at pixeldynamo.com.

Luckily for him, he didn’t have to start from scratch. Mosinski instead found help on Thingiverse, where users Mr Vein, aaskedall and haihuynh provided templates for him to work with. If you’re interested in 3D printing them yourself, you can find them Mr Vein’s work here, aaskedall’s here and haihynh’s here.

Taking a bit of all their work, Mosinksi ended up with a very impressive result. Standing approximately 9 inches tall, his Codsworth is of an exceptionally high quality and wouldn’t look bad as an actual Bethesda action figure. Even the appendages (fully movable!) and paint job look as professional as they can be. That cool base metal look was achieved using Krylon 1010A. In short, it’s a fantastic tribute to the game. And incidentally, after posting it on Reddit, Mosinksi was further inspired to 3D print an additional characteristic bowler hat.

If you’re interested in getting one of these models yourself, your best bet is probably 3D printing your own using the Thingiverse links provided above. Mosinski did joke that he would manufacture and ship one for $350, but that’s probably not worth it. “I'd much rather wait until I have my Mk. II version done which has a smooth removable dome that shows the internals. I don't feel right making profits off of another person’s design,” he added immediately. However we can look forward to more excellent Fallout 4 projects by his hand. “I have plans of fabricating a Sentry Bot and a full-scale AER 3 Laser Rifle too. There is so much cool stuff in the Fallout universe to build,” he told reporters, and we can wait. For more of his work, take a look at Mosinski’s Instagram account.

More non-functional fanboy garbage. What a waste.
