Still a little miffed that you didn’t land your real-life Fallout 4 Pip-Boy before Bethesda lost the ability to make them anymore? Well, who needs them when you can 3Dprint your own!
ytec3dhas the schematics for its own Pip-Boy 3000 Mark IV model, and it looks just as close to the real thing as you can get. You can still slip your phone into it. You can still use it to level-up your character in the game. You can still use it once before putting it in your closest with the rest of the Special Edition swag you regret paying real-world money for.
You know what? It even makes up for the differences is phone sizes, extending beyond what the official product allowed.
The 3D printed Pip-Boy 3000 Mark IV comes in 3 sizes. This is because the previous version, the Pip-Boy 3000, was already too small for some people, and the Mark IV is even smaller in some regions. Simply scaling the parts up is not only time consuming and prone to mistakes, it messes up the design. Some holes in the parts are designed for the screws to tap threads. If these holes become 10% larger, the screws will no longer fit. The standard sizes that the pip-boy comes in are: 100%, 108% and 115%.
Fallout 4 will be released on the PlayStation , Xbox One, and PC on Nov. 10.
