Weighted Companion Cube by DemonBa55Player Weighted Companion Cube by DemonBa55Player
Here is my paper-craft Aperture Science Weighted Companion Cube. As I built this, I was also working on another project... A tutorial on how to build one of these MY WAY. My way makes the model tough and heavy, enabling it to last a lifetime and resist a lot of damage. The only downside is that the construction process takes a while and will require patients. But it's all worth it in the end.

Wow, that looks awesome and very accurate looks-wise. How big is it?

Thank you. I'm GLaD you like it. It is about 3 inches tall, 3 inches wide.

:) I'm planning to make one of mine as well, but probably 9"x9" inches. I think I might use bits from your tutorial (like putting in the cardboard part). Do you think that would work as well (using your tutorial), even though it is 3 times bigger? Thanks! (I'm really GLaD as well that you've also decided to share your tutorial with us. (I'll credit you on dA if I ever finish it.))

Hmmm... Yeah, I think it would work. I don't really see why it shouldn't. But, before you start, let me give you a tip. When you're gluing the pieces onto the cardboard material, use a cylindrical object, like a rolling pin, to evenly flatten out the pieces. This will help prevent wrinkles from forming and will get rid of the air bubbles.

If you have any more questions, just let me know and I'll do whatever I can to help. :)

Sounds like a really fun project. Well, best of luck to ya and I hope to see it soon. (Ow^)b

Ok, thanks for the tip. :)
I've actually already started, but it's 57cm (so around 22 inches), which is a little less than life-sized. I think it might be a bit hard to cover the whole thing with paper, but I think I'll still do that for certain parts like the pink ring, the circle in the middle and the heart.
Hopefully I'll get it done soon, eventually :XD:

Also, thanks for the watch and llama!

Also- about the sides (I've used the same one as you)- I got a bit confused with that- I'm not too sure if it's just that I'm doing it wrong, but the sides (not the curved one) doesn't seem right. It doesn't touch the cube- it seems like an empty space underneath it- if you know what I mean...? I compared it to this template- it's a little different: 3.bp.blogspot.com/-KOseJqWA1H0…
