Release 3D Print It: Obsolete Data System STL File


3D Print It: Obsolete Data System



Its been over 40 years since a living soul has infiltrated the forgotten lab of Doctor Phasmaro. As you brush away the dusty cobwebs you find the hidden entrance to the main computer room. Thanks to Phasmaro's experimental reactor the power is still on here. Lights blink and flash from a massive electronic structure that was the evil doctor's main data system.

Though still very high tech, this model represents the obsolete computer systems that the heroes would stumble upon in older bases and labs.

The obsolete data system is a perfect addition to any super hero or villain base. This piece of machinery could also be easily added to a variety of other gaming genres, from post apocalypse to fantasy/sci-fi fusion to space opera style settings. This model is printed in one single piece. The default size settings are perfect for miniatures on the 28mm to 30mm scale. Naturally this item can be resized in your slicer program to meet your needs if your miniatures are on a different scale.

Here’s the default dimensions for the obsolete data system: 112mmx61mmx57mm

Many folks often ask the designer what settings are recommended for printing various files. Depending on your printer, your slicer program, your choice of materials, etc. these recommendations can change. The designer tests these files on a Qidi X-Smart (using the native Qidi slicer), an Ender 3 printer (using Cura), and an Ender 5 (using Cura for the slicer). Of all of these the most common option for most hobbyists would be the Ender 3 with settings in Cura. Here's the recommended Cura settings that have worked for the designer's test print using the following: Ender 3 (printer) or Qidi X-Smart, Hatchbox, Duramic3d, or Stronghero brand 1.75 PLA filament. Please note that these settings print very slow, but should provide you a nice finish with details. You can always speed the settings up if you prefer speed over fine detail.
