Bastion Casemod (Overwatch)
Special thanks to Michele Natan Garzia for the 3D files for this project :)
Starting on my new project, this time i will build Bastion from the computer game Overwatch.
This will be fully 3D printed with my new Makerbot replicator 5th gen printer that i was so lucky to win in a Casemod contest at The Gathering 2016 with my Absolut Computer casemod.
Sutech AS - Din kontor- og dataleverandør. Når kvalitet teller.
This case will be about 70cm high and printed in 259 parts, some parts will be combined together with printing, rest will be glued together.
- 0.2 layer hight
- 30% infill
Printed with PLA 1,75mm from www.3dnet.no
After all parts are printed i will use sandpaper,sprayfiller and paint to get a smooth surface and the correct color on the model.
The computer i will use for this project is a ASRock Beebox-s barebone sponsored from www.multicom.no
Here are some parts that are done printing with filament from 3dnet Norge
This project will take some time. Some of the biggest parts will take about 25-30 hours to print, the smaller parts will only take 1-3 hours of printing. but hopefully i will be done with all the parts within the end of november.
My 3D printer in action
Just missing 3 parts here to complete one of his legs. On the picture the parts are not sanded and painted yet.
I just used double-sided tape to stick the parts together.This final product will look much better and will be plactic welded together.
Just bought this tool from www.3dnet.no . It's perfect for removing supports.
Yesterday i tried to use it for platsic welding, to stick parts together.
I just used some 1.75MM PLA, angled the parts in the correct position and melted the PLA with this tool on the edges. After the PLA was cooled down the parts stick together like it was printed together, works much better than glue :)
Done printing his head and mounted light in the front. This will be the computer power on LED.
Bastion gun and turret done printing. ready for sprayfiller, sanding and then primer and be painted in gunmetall black
One of his legs are now plastic welded together, and sprayed with sprayfiller ready for sanding. First with 240 sandpaper, then 400 and finally with 600 grit sandpaper,
His other leg will be done printing this weekend.
Only 24 more parts left to be printed :D
Hopefully they are all done by the end of next week so i can start sanding the parts and plastic-weld them together.
Next update will be on Sunday with lots of pictures.
Here is a little update with pictures :)
One of his legs are now sanded and sprayed with primer. Ready for painting :D
I will paint all the parts with these colors:
Here we have 90% of the parts. Some painted, some sanded. Missing one leg in the picture, the primer needs to dry before painting details.
Painting the parts will start in the end of november or earlier.
Will use the rest of november to sand the parts with sandpaper and prepare them with primer and then plasticweld them together.
will give a new update when the computer from www.multicom.no arrives next week.
Got some paint and painted his first leg :) i must admit that im not a very good painter, but i'm
happy with the result. Think i will paint another layer to fill some small gaps etc..
Some progress on his body and head. This is there the computer will be mounted. Have some problems, i need to figure out how to easy remove the motherboard
if i ever need to replace harddrive or memory etc. Right now the motherbord fits, but when the parts are glued together it will be a problem without breaking the parts,
so i need to reprint the bottom part under his torso so i can acces the motherboard and also take ut out.
Sorry for the poor quality of this picture, will take better picture when all the parts are sanded and painted.
This is the motherboard that was mounted inside the ASrock Beebox-S 6200U sponsored from Multicom
Today the M.2 SSD and DDR4 arrived from Sutech AS :)
- Intel® SSD 600p Series 256GB PCIe M.2
- HyperX Impact DDR4 2133MHz 8GB SODIMM
will install windows 10 later today and also install overwatch on this computer and give it a test :)
Have now tested overwatch on this computer, everything runs smooth, not with the best graphics,
but it runs and Overwatch is playable :)
Have also started to paint his torso, still some details here and there missing, but its starting to take shape :)
Today i painted his machinegun :)
Have done alot of work now. Painted his other leg, added 12v power in his head for the blue light in his eye, Printed his bird (Ganymede),monted his torso to his legs etc.
Will start working on his hands now. Have also ordered a soundmodule so he can speak.
A part of the turrect is done.
The other part of the turret will be done when the soundmodule arrives from japan. The ammo magazine for the turret will have a speaker and a sound module so Bastion can talk :)
Also painted one of his hands :) hopefully his other hand with machinegun will be done tomorrow and mounted to his body.
After bastion is done i will make a displaycase for him. This will have a sponsor LCD screen on top and a glowing overwatch logo on the bottom.
Will also add a LED strip inside so Bastion lights up :).
it will look something like this:
His arm is now attached, still missing his shoulder. Hopefully his machinegun arm will be done tonight.
Sponsorlogo's will be added today.
Have now ordered a small micro servo and a controllerboard so he can move his head, It was ordered on ebay from hong kong, so i guess it will take 2-3 weeks before it arrives.
His machinegun hand is also done, and so is the little yellow bird :) Sponsor stickers is also added :) Now i just have to wait till the serve, soundmodule etch arrives in the mail before i can do anything more.
Sound module arrived in mail yesterday. Have now updated the module with mp3 files, so every 15 minutes he plays some random soundfx :)
Will take some pictures this weekend. Have also started to work on the displaystand. Have to wait before i can mount his turret. still waiting for the Teensy 2.0+ board to arrive in the mail. The Teensy board will control the servo for his head so this board will be inserted in the turret.
My plan is to move his head automatically every 10minutes so he looks more alive.
Here is a picture of the displaystand im working on:
The plan is to make a glowing overwatch logo in the bottom and put a 7" LCD with sponsors on top. also have some leds for glow everything up.
This will be done next year, its christmas soon so i will take a break now.
Servo arrives in the mail :)
This small servo will be used to move his head
i manged go get a Arduno board for controlling this servo. so now his head is moving :)
his head is now moving every 1 minutes, but i will change this to every 5 minutes.
Happy new year everyone :)
The teensy++ 2.0 board for the servo in his head arrived in the mail, but looks like its not working like it should, so i could not get the servo to work with it.
Have now ordered a Arduino Nano board (should arrive around 18th jan.)
Added a glowing overwatch logo on the displaystand (still need some work before done)
Added a Raspberry Pi with 7" LCD on top to show sponsors
Will add a small frame around the screen later
Just some details left to make things perfect and also add LED's in the roof to light up bastion.
Will try to add the turret later this week.
Still waiting for the Arduino Nano (controlling the servo in his head). Hopefully it will arrive this weekend.
Turret is now mounted , will take some pictures this weekend after i have mounted some cables etc.
Bastion is now powered on with a remote :)
Played overwatch for the first time on Bastion today, its working very well :)
Have also added light in the front of his torso :)
Turret added. The red,orange and black cable is for the servo in his head, this will be hidden when the new controller board (Arduino Nano) arrives in the mail.
Added a coolermaster fan for better air flow. will drill some small holes under the fan after i have mounted a temperature sensor.
