The fourth installment of Bethesda’s Fallout series of video games has continued its long run as one of the most critically and financially successful properties in the industry — and creaters love it. The post-apocalyptic adventure game takes place in an alternate history with a ’40s/’50s atomic-age aesthetic which is both retro and futuristic at the same time. The game follows a survivor as they wake up of over two hundred years of cryogenic stasis and are forced to head out into the wasteland looking for their missing child. Along the way they’ll explore radioactive rubble, form communities, learn to use all sorts of weapons, and fight off monsters, mutants and all manner of shady characters with the help of a variety of companions which they come across throughout the game.
One of the additional informative, and unexpectedly heartbreaking, companions is the survivor’s old Mister Handy robotic butler named Codsworth whose tale of survival will have most a player cursing the onions being inexplicably chopped near them. Mister Handy robots regularly appear in all of the Fallout games, but the fourth game finally gives one a compelling story and allows for users to bring it, and its destructive octopus arms full of weapons, along on missions and quests. To pay tribute to Codsworth and his tragic story, Fallout superfan Mark Mosinski created and 3D printed an amazingly detailed and depletely articulated Codsworth figure.
Mosinski is an artist, photographer and avid gamer who in addition dabbles in 3D printing and modeling, through which he produced quite the formidable figure. His Codsworth figure looks precisely as it appears in Fallout 4, and was even modeled after a few of the real 3D designs of the game designers. The model even has the signs and wear and tear which show up on Codsworth when his owner finds him two hundred years later, which include the duller, gray color over the bright flashy colors which he has in the beginning of the game. According to Mosinski the entire project took him additional than three weeks to deplete, which include the designing, 3D printing, sanding, painting and assembling.
Codsworth was 3D printed on Mosinski’s Up Plus 2 3D printer, and all of the dozen plus parts took of a third of an entire 1KG spool of gray PLA filament. All three of the robot’s arms are fully articulated and posable, and they have the signature weapons at the end of each. That includes a pincer arm, an arm with a flamethrower at the end of it and of course the buzzsaw arm. The entire figure stands a little over nine inches tall when it’s attached to the display stand.
Test assembling Codsworth.
Everything fits together.

As you can see, the hours of sanding, painting and detailing have created Mosinski’s Codsworth figure remarkably cool. It looks excellent\ adequate to sell as a collectible figure all on its own, but if you’re looking to create your own sadly he has not released his STL files yet. Of course you can always head on over to his Instagram account and ask him if he’s willing to share, and of course stick around for his excellent photography and cool 3D printing projects. Discuss this design in the 3D Printed Fallout 4 Codsworth forum on 3DPB.com.
