A TARDIS from the 3rd Dimension!

This is a 6" 3D printed TARDIS kit based on BBC blueprints from the Eccleston or early Tennant era. It's printed with ABS (same as LEGO) and PLA (biodegradable) plastics and designed to simply slot together or it can be glued together for extra strength. The TARDIS has a solid bottom and a removable top so it can be used as a container or pencil holder. It stands about 6" high and comes complete with stickers for the top and door.

Keep Weeping Angels at bay by adding the Lighting Upgrade - a high-intensity LED that simply slots into the TARDIS kit. Lights up the windows and top lamp using AA batteries (not included) for up to 8 hours. If you're a tinkerer, get the lights as a DIY kit which includes all the needed 3D and electronic parts - basic soldering skills needed.

Take a look at the TARDIS and lighting kit assembly directions here: https://db.tt/18YcRerG

6" TARDIS Kit includes: 13 easy-to-assembly pieces, 5 labels.
Lighting Kit includes: Bottom ring, LED mount, Switch mount, Lighting assembly (or parts for the DIY kit)

TARDIS is NOT food, dishwasher or microwave safe.
Pieces will have a 'textured' finish where you can see and feel the different print layers. Some blemishes and imperfections are to be expected, this is normal. Some minor trimming or cleanup may be needed on parts.

Frequently asked questions about CharlesworthDynamics

3D printed objects are made by 'slicing' a digital model into many thin layers. These slices are sent to a printer that 'draws' each layer by extruding plastic through a hot nozzle.
There are a lot of different materials available now but the two most common are ABS (LEGO plastic) and PLA (biodegradable plastic) which is what Charlesworth Dynamics uses.
While the 3D prints aren't hazardous, they are not food, dishwasher or microwave safe.
They are very strong, but will break just like any plastic item if abused.
3D prints are very strong if printed properly but will break just like any plastic item if abused. Since the object is printed in layers, they will have a slightly ridged texture to them unlike a injection molded object. There is usually a 'zipper' which is a slight vertical seam that indicates where each new layer starts. They may have slight defects or blemishes and the bottom which adheres to the print bed may have some discoloration. Kit pieces may need minor clean up or trimming to fit together. This is typical of most 3D prints.
Yes, you can sand and paint 3D prints like a normal plastic model. You can even use products like Bondo Glazing and Spotting putty to minimize and smooth the 3D printed texture. Make sure to use a plastic-friendly paint.

On occasion I will also build items out of 'real' parts and hardware - typically I use vintage Film & TV equipment parts. I have made lamps out of old lenses and jewelry out of old camera parts. Keep in mind that these are all used parts and will show their wear and tear and age - it's part of their charm.
