3D print model artist Psychobob was comissioned by Gamespot UK to create a Claptrap figurine, the robot from Borderlands.
Psychobob used Solidworks to create the 3D model and uploaded the model to Shapeways to be printed. After receiving the 3D printed pieces Psychobob spent days to smooth and paint the parts. In his videos below Psychobob explained how he made the model itself, how he painted, wired up the LED circuit and assembled the Claptrap model. If you want to know exactly the process, read his blog here.
