With Apex Legends still very popular, more and more people are opening its Apex Packs, the game’s version of loot boxes which are based on the Tick robot seen in Titanfall 2.
While you can always pay real money to open more Apex Packs, you can now instead 3D print a physical recreation of one thanks to the work of maker Jonnyo85.
They tell us that the model for this print was created in Fusion 360 using screenshots as reference and firing up the game to properly look them over.
This process was done over several days taking a few hours each time, including some test prints to make sure everything was going smoothly.
Printing itself took around 10 hours to complete, but this is at 50 percent of the model is scaled to be.
At this size the version of the print you see on this page stands 10 centimetres tall.
This Apex Pack print has no finishing work or painting (aside from the removal of printing supports) but does feature removal triangular segments which can be removed as they do in the game when you open the pack.
Sadly there’s no holographic tech here to display what loot was inside, but maybe someone will make a version of this print using some DIY solutions which usually depend on cut up pieces of plastic and a special YouTube video.
If you’d like to try your hand at making that version or even just painting up one yourself, the files to do so are available for free on Thingiverse.
Jonnyo85 tells us that they’re working on more prints from Apex Legends with those released already available on their profile.
Strangely enough this isn’t the first time we’ve featured 3D printed loot boxes. Version from Heroes of the Storm and Overwatch have popped up before with the latter even featuring a lighting mechanism to better replicate the opening experience.
