“The A.P.E. [Advanced Persuasion Device] is a remotely controlled Avatar. It has no firing weapons but its immense strength and heavy armour are enough to keep the enemy in check.”
After a week of late nights I have finally completed my entry for the Gizmodo/3DPrintUK 3D printing competition. The brief was to create an avatar character for the Halo world.
Because I am a CAD designer and a bit rusty with 3DMAX I decided to design a mech type device using Solidworks. I wanted the design to have a cool distinctive silhouette, something that stands out so I thought a super strong ape mech would be a bit different and look great printed in 3D.
