3D Printed 1/6 Scale Gonk Droid for Tested.com   6 comments

 

This guy finally made it across the country to the guys at Tested.com so I can show him off.  I’ve been a fan of the Tested crew for years, so I wanted to send them something as a small thanks for all their years of awesome content.  Fortunately they are fans of making stuff, 3D printing, and Star Wars.  All things I can contribute!  Thanks to the Tested guys for the awesome mailbag vid and website shout out.

This Gonk Droid features a few tweaks over the first green one I did that help with printability, as well as some better detail on the (not printed) leg wires.  I also took the opportunity to try out something I’ve been thinking would work, a 3D printed paint mask!  Testedcles is the old Tested logo, and I really wanted to work him onto the droid for them.  I traced the logo in my modeling software and made it a cutout in a thin slab of plastic that worked perfectly as a spray mask.  After a few different coats of weathering, any remaining sins, and my orange Gonk Droid was good to go!

    • Hi Kimm,

      Thanks for the comment! I currently do not have any Gonk Droids for sale, but please keep an eye on the site for news about upcoming releases. I’d like to get a few more things done before the end of the year 🙂

  3. Would you be able to share the file? I’m trying to make a Gonk Droid Portable phone charger for a friend and this is the only 3D model of it I’ve seen so far.
