Picture of Borderlands: Desktop Claptrap Model

Greetings, Vault Hunters!

Back in the dust with another Borderlands project with one that stems from a previous Borderlands build on my page; Claptrap! This is an entirely separate Instructable from my first Claptrap, one for a pint-sized, desktop version of the lovable/hateable robot critter, and what better time to delve back into the Borderlands franchise with Borderlands 3 right around the corner.

This project involves some 3D printing, scratch building and painting and makes for a great weekend project, and best of all, no power tools required.

Step 1: Tools + Materials

  • 3D printer (or Shapeways, 3DHubs etc.)
  • Super glue
  • Utility Knife/Scalpel
  • Sandpaper/Sanding block
  • Acrylic paints
  • Brushes
  • Files (optional)
  • Modelling putty
  • Plastic (Styrene, PVC sheet)
  • Spray Paint
  • Filler primer/Surface primer
omgggggg he's perfect!
