Portal Testing Chamber
Hello, and welcome to the Aperture Science Computer-Aided
Enrichment Center. The test chamber you are about to enter is highly modular.
One of my all-time favorite games is Portal 2, a puzzle game
solved using orange and blue portals. Each puzzle (“test chamber”) is made of
poseable panels, and has different interiors and dimensions depending on the
test. This Lego Idea contains a set of elements you can use to build any test
The modular nature of the set means tests can be built to
any dimensions. Each interior element fits into the modular system I designed,
meaning they can be swapped to any position in the test frame. Builders can create
any test they can imagine!
If you have any tips or suggestions for what you’d like to
see in this project, make sure to leave a comment! I will respond to it :)
Keep reading for details of the set proposal!
The set consists of four main groups of elements: the
modular frame, the interior details, the exterior details, and small builds and
The basic element of the modular system is the modular unit.
These modular elements allow faces to connect at right
angles, vertically and horizontally. By combining modular faces with these right angle
connectors, the chamber’s frame is created.
The panels of Portal 2 are what inspired this whole project.
I loved the way they moved into virtually any position. Just like in game,
these panels are very poseable: they have seven degrees of rotation and two
points of extension. A panel can reach more than three panels away from its
The set is meant to be fun to play with, so I included some
action features! Some of these are the crusher, which can move in and out, and the
aerial faith plate, a catapult to launch figures into the air.
Finally, some interior details completely replace a modular
unit. The chamberlock doors, an opening entrance/exit to the test chamber, and
the observation room are two such details.
You may have noticed that the chamberlock doors and
observation room can fit minifigures! Both of these structures are accessed
from the rear, using railing details.
Among the figure and small build selection are: Chell (with
a new, full jumpsuit print), Bendy, Atlas and P-Body, companion cubes (two,
using official Lego printed pieces), turrets (two regular, one defective, one
rocket, and the parts to convert a cube into a frankenturret), Wheatley, and
two portal guns. (These renders use stand-ins, as LDD does not have the official printed pieces).
With this large selection of compatible details and
elements, you can create any test you could imagine! It could be overgrown, or
just renovated and clean, or full of deadly pits; the choice is yours!
This set proposal comes with ~2200 pieces, which are used to
build up modular elements to create virtually any test you can imagine. As
commentors pointed out, this set embodies the spirit of Lego creativity with
