Vault Boy Keychain Piece

Recently, I started playing Fallout 4, and I really love the game. It is a great game, and has a really good story. However, this does not have much to do with 3D printing. So you may ask why I am rambling about unimportant stuff. As well as, what relativity to 3D printing does Fallout 4 have. The answer is, it doesn't have any relativity, but the little keychain I made of Vault Boy the iconic Fallout series character does.

I wanted to 3D print this character and had plans on painting it. So, I used one of Tinkercad's neat shape generators, to make a semi-3D Vault Boy. And shortly after it was done, at most it took maybe 5-10 minutes, because I had to do a little extra. After that, I got it printed at a local print service, and took it home. There, I stuck it in a closet for about 3 days until I decided to paint it. Painting was a little difficult as it was my second time painting any 3D models. But, within 3 hours or so, I had finished it and it looked pretty good.

I have to say I am very happy with this model. It came out well, and there was no supports or rafts required. After painting I was able to take it to a local festival where I was able to show it off. It also comes with a little hole above Vault Boy's head so that it can be put on a keychain or something.
