DOOM players who have wondered just how big the DOOM BFG gun would be in real-life, need not ponder the question any further. As the games developer Bethesda has recently commissioned a 3D printed version of the BFG to be made for a contest.
The 3D printer BFG replica has been created by the team over at MyMiniFactory. As you can see in the image above the DOOM BFG or “ultimate blaster upgrade” gun is one huge weapon.
During the 3D printing process MyMiniFactory used over 26lbs of plastic 3D printing filament which took over 1,000 hours to print. With the construction of the BFG from start to finish taking over a month to complete. Check out the YouTube video below to learn more about its construction and just how large the BFG is in real-life.
In one of the biggest and most ambitious 3D printing challenges we have ever seen, MyMiniFactory set about building a 1:1 scale 3D printed BFG for one lucky contest winner.
Taking over 1,000 hours of 3D printing and using over 12 KG of plastic filament, this beast of a model took over 1 month to make. The DOOM BFG is so heavy to hold it takes at least 3 people to carry it! MyMiniFactory is a social platform for 3D design and 3D printing. Talented designers from around the world submit their work for others to download for free.
