Companion Cube Giant Plushie by NekoNariko Companion Cube Giant Plushie by NekoNariko
Most awesome cat bed ever...!

This companion cube was made from the coordinates from the source files in the game. I assumed Valve used inches as their units, but this ended up a little larger than I expected, so I'm a little unsure if I made the right assumptions about units. There are almost 400 separate pieces in the cube, and all have been backed with craftfuse. It took me over a year off and on to finally finish this project.

Edit: There's been a lot of talk about my cube and how I made it. So I made a tutorial. It's in three parts on my blog:

Cool! This is one of the best made companion cube plushies I've seen. Looks nice and comfy :)

I've also made a version of the companion cube. Mine ended up a bit big as well. There's pictures in my gallery, if youre interested. Geez, all those parts. It really is a hazzel, isn't it :D

(By the way, I ended up here by searching cat plushies :D )

This is the first almost reasonable offer I've ever had.

...But I'm still not making them.

The pattern in up for sale on my blog, though!

If I could do it economically, I'd think about it. But this took me over a year, so.... yeah that's not going to happen. I'm glad you like it, though!
And if you're determined, you should read my blog post on how I made it!

In that pic it's full of regular cotton stuffing in the corners, as well as a large amount of love-sac like foam, and some leftover foam from some other projects as well as some beanbag pellets. THat's all been removed and I'm currently working on restuffing it proper.

Where did you find the coordinates in the game?
I would most certainly love to attempt to make one myself. o3o

You can use the valve tools to extract the game models, and then use the mdl decompiler that a fan made to actually get the information into a usable form, and then use blender or another 3d program in import that data and then click on the points to get the data.

May I ask what the measurements are? I'm going to convert them to centimeters and then see what happens. <3 my quest for the perfect cube begins here!
Reply
:iconnekonariko:
NekoNariko Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2011
It's 40" by 40". I used the units off of the actual model that is from the game. I assume inches because 40 of any other unit didn't make sense to me. It is rather big, though, but the first cube is not really all that small, so.... yeah. I still haven't compared it to the in game player model, but I hope to soon.

*nods wisely* I knew that you would prove to be a good source. Using the game to make the measurements, very clever. Aside from me sounding creepy, I thank you!

Well, so many people have asked for them, I *may* draft up all the patterns. I'm at least going to post some tutorial pics at some point here. I don't have too many, but I do have some.
