I've been meaning to put together a build post for this for a while now but kept getting distracted.

I never gave back the Skeleton Key and never finished the Thieves Guild. I feel no remorse.

Nick modeled up the key a couple years ago but recently added more details to the knob.

Here's a screenshot of the 3d model in Autodesk Inventor.



3D printed with a Lulzbot Mini.



I didn't take any pictures of the key with bondo filler on it but here's a picture of it with a mix of bondo and primer, wet sanded!



Final coat of primer in the spray booth!



Here's a few pictures of it after base coating.






I love shapeways, so I had them print me a key. The level of detail is amazing.



More pictures coming soon!

Does it count if I make a red one? haha



I completely forgot about the unusal gem/chest, I got too excited about the FO4 terminal. I need to get that guy painted up!

Looks awesome. Do you like that spray booth?
Thanks! I do, it works well as long as you keep the filter clear/clean. I made a panel to hook it up to the exhaust above my stove! I also made a cart/enclosure for it using some random parts I had laying around and a target metal shelving unit with wheels.I think it was around $80 on amazon.



I found more pictures of the key being 3d printed! (Lulzbot Mini)





Here she is with a metallic base coat!



This is a close up with the metallic coats applied.



Metallics + weathering. Aaron does the detail painting and weathering, he's a wizard of sorts. If you have any questions I'll forward them to him and post his responses!



He's messing with a few different ways to get the "glow" effect that the skeleton key has on it. Personally, I really like the way this turned out.



And drum roll.....here's the first finished Skeleton Key of several!





We're currently working on a few more of these. I just finished sanding a few of them up to drop off with Aaron for painting!
