Portal Gun 3D by Handelo Portal Gun 3D by Handelo
It's done!
Had this little side project as an idea for some time, and I finally got to finish it!

The Portal Gun, also known as the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, otherwise known as the Aperture Science Portable Quantum Tunneling Device, in all it's glory.

I've tried to make this as close to the original as possible, using references from screenshots, various Googeled blueprints, and even photos of H. Krix's AWESOME custom built replica (if you don't know what I'm talking about, Google "Volpin Props Portal Gun").

Had to make some slight adjustments and improvisations, especially on the "operative end" of the device, since that was never shown properly in the game, but I like how it turned out.

Materials were probably the hardest part to get just right, I must've spent several hours on those alone. Ugh.

Anyways, enough ramblings from me. And please, if you favorite this, comment! :XD:


Made in 3ds Max 2010

Awesome work!!

(to link thumbnails, just write : thumb[#] : without any spaces...for example, for your deviation, the number would be 251355914. You can see that on the address bar after the name of the deviation. :thumb251355914:

Nor is it possible on the description, apparently. Not for non-subscribers, anyway.

Thanks for the tip anyway :D

Maybe you can have one made. For a lot of money lol XD
The real life replicas are pretty awesome though.

I probably could, but I'm broke and I don't cosplay and I don't have an orange jumpsuit for Halloween, so it would sit on my shelf for the rest of my life. :XD: They are totally awesome. :meow:

I wouldn't mind paying a lot for a replica even if it did only sit on my shelf for the rest of my life, just so I would have the bragging right :D Maybe I'll make one myself someday, there's a tutorial up after all. I just need the time and drive to put in that much effort haha :XD:

Haha, yeah, I'm not that crafty and I certainly don't have that much talent. :P But I usually prefer to buy things I'm going to use (which is why I always feel guilty when I pay lots of money for something that's going to sit on my shelf for the rest of my life :XD:)!

how do you guys model the portal gun is there some perfect reference image out there i dont know about or found yet because this looks amazing

Read my description, there's a guy who made a near exact replica of it that was so accurate, even Valve commissioned him to make another for them (one with a PotatOS stuck on it, too).
His flickr page gives you tons of views of it from all directions.

Plus, there're also a couple of blueprints out there, one of which was taken from one of Portal 2's promotional trailers (the boots trailer).

The rest you just kinda fill in, everyone does it a bit differently :)

Dude! How did you make it???? It looks AMAZING!

Thanks!
Mainly, a lot of screenshots and a lot of time trying to get the model to match them.
The base modelling was rather easy, surprisingly - almost everything started out as a simple cylinder (except the claws).

The rest? Lets just say, a good material is what makes a good render :)

Wow... How long did it take you?

Hmm, about 4 days. Since I was working on other things as well I can't really say how many hours. Maybe around 10?

You gotta have patience for these kinds of things. I have a human model I worked on for months, on and off, just for fun. Compared to that, this was really easy :P
