This is a Twentieth Century Fox movie directed by James Cameron, sequel to Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979), where Ellen Ripley fights and survives a group of nasty and aggressive reptilian-like alien killer creatures with acid blood, during a rescue mission on a deserted space colony where a young girl is the sole survivor. One of the 100 best movies ever!!! (according to IMDB)
The M41A Pulse Rifle is the iconic weapon held by Ripley in the poster and also in many combat scenes throughout the movie.
saddex3d, what can you tell us about this project?
“I made many different props/replicas from movies and games, so this one was a new idea that came from my Canadian friend Tarry (tmaxprops). Together we made many 99% accurate replicas with 100% customer satisfaction and this one won’t be an exception.” Dario Klepic, Feb 2020
During this project, saddex3d goes through 3 different steps:
- 3D design a replica of the iconic weapon. The project includes 25 parts, designed to be 3D printed; (current step)
- 3D print all the parts using a Prusa i3 MK3, upgraded with a Bondtech Upgrade Kit for Prusa.
- Send the parts to his partner, @tmax_props from Canada, for finishing and paint job.
This model will at the end be sold through Tmax Props Etsy shop.
Currently at Step 1 – 3D modelling – Here is how to do it:
