Check out the entire Boolean Gemini series where Bill shows you how to build the iconic Destiny gun from start to finish!
Learn a couple of simple techniques for gluing together your 3D printed prop parts. Then blend the seams so that you’ll never know there was any kind of gap. Also, magnets!
To prove that the gun is scaled properly, Bill decided to model and print the handle next and see how it fits in his hand. Check out some 3D modeling skills in Fusion 360.
Bill gets started on this new 3D printed build, the Boolean Gemini scout rifle from Destiny. All of the parts for the prop will be 3D printed and this small scope piece serves as a proof of concept and standard bearer for the rest of the project.
Bill learned a valuable lesson about leaving your 3D printed props in a hot car. Unfortunately the Boolean Gemini Scout Rifle was forfeit.
While at Matterhackers, Bill teamed up with Alec to show how the Destiny Boolean Gemini scout rifle prop is assembled from plethora of 3D printed parts.
In this final episode of the Boolean Gemini build, Bill shows how he did all of the final detail painting, assembly, and weathering.
In this second to last video in the 3D printed Boolean Gemini scout rifle build, Bill starts painting the prop! Using masking tape, masking fluid, and an airbrush, several layers of paint are applied.
When it comes to making super refined 3D printed prop guns, filling and sanding is what will make or break the finish of your piece. Bill shows you how to fool anyone with your 3D printed props in part 8 of the Boolean Gemini build.
As the Boolean Gemini scout rifle prop nears completion, Bill goes over why he prefers to sand all of the parts manually instead of using acetone vapor smoothing to remove the print lines.
