Adam Savage Builds: Blade Runner 2049 Binoculars!

These 3D printed binoculars are based on a photo from Wired featuring Bladerunner 2049 props. They’re an enclosure for a $13 monocular you can buy on Amazon, so they actually work!

One Day Builds return! Adam’s latest build is a prop replica from one of his favorite films of 2017, Blade Runner 2049! In making Deckard’s binoculars from the movie, Adam starts with a 3D-printed model designed around working optics, and adds plenty of his own customized parts for accuracy!

Kydex™ thermoforming material




Adam used the Instructables build and added a more industrial look with a Kydex® eye cover which he goes into detail on how to work with the professional thermoforming material.
