The 3D Printed Question Box

A few days ago my fellow BrainLazer, Phawx, came to me with a model of a relative newcomer to the world of video games: Meat Boy. It came out pretty good, so I figured it was only fitting that I pay homage to one of the ever-present but often overlooked icons of the video game world. Behold! The Question Box!

A few days ago my fellow BrainLazer, Phawx, came to me with a model of a relative newcomer to the world of video games, Meat Boy, that he wanted me to print out on my handy new 3D printer. We fired it up, let the molten plastic flow, and it came out pretty good. So I figured it was only fitting that I pay homage to one of the ever-present but often overlooked icons of the video game world.

The design was quick, thorough, and needlessly complex. Just the way I like it. There is a long way to go, but I’m the impatient sort, so I cranked out a quick, low resolution sample to see how it was going. I rushed the job a little bit, so it is a little wonky, but behold! The Question Box Mark I!

I’ll admit, it is a humble little guy right now, but this is just phase one. I’ve got big plans for this block. Big plans…
