The_Icestorm posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingThis is a recreation of the robot character GLaDOS from the game 'Portal', using Technic and Mindstorms. Just to answer a question some of you may have: Why Mindstorms? Why not PF? Well for a start, I don't own that many PF motors (only got 2 medium motors and 1 XL motor), and secondly, I don't own any PF IR receivers or remotes. The mindstorms kit has its own IR sensor and remote, so I used that. Functions: 1. Head elevation controlled by EV3 large motor 2. Head rotation controlled by EV3 medium motor 3. Body elevation controlled by EV3 large motor 4. Body rotation controlled by EV3 medium motor These may not be very many functions, but they allow for most of GLaDOS's movement seen in the actual game. The range of movement is quite reasonable. Regarding aesthetics, I don't own a lot of LEGO pieces, so the model may look a bit incomplete or strange in some places. But I think I did an OK job with what I had to work with, especially the head.

Once again, our heroine Chell finds herself facing the challenges of Aperture Science Enrichment Center. Aperture_000 by LuxorV, su Flickr This time, she's trying to get through Test Chamber 0XX, while Wheatley checks on her progress, unbeknownst to GLaDOS. Aperture_001 by LuxorV, su Flickr This was mostly a test for me to try and build some of the testing gear in minifig scale; as this is just a portion of the test chamber, do not try too hard to understand how Chell should solve it with just the mechanisms shown here.
