TARDIS Deluxe Kit by countspatula Jul 27, 2013


*** I have lighting kits for sale on my Etsy store if interested:

LABELS zip has been updated to include an inverted version of the top label.

Charlesworth Dynamics is pleased to offer the TARDIS Deluxe Kit. I have yet to get a satisfactory print out of a TARDIS which prints standing up, so I designed this to print flat. It turns out better, faster and offers some nice customization options.

This is based directly off BBC blueprints from around Eccleston or early Tennant. Everything is designed to slot or snap together so glue isn't necessary except for the lamp top to lamp shade since it's so tiny.

The top comes off so the TARDIS can be used as a pencil holder, container, etc. Use the solid base in this case.

Make a regular TARDIS, Bad Wolf TARDIS, Half Wolf TARDIS (shown) and jazz it up by adding lights.

This is a great kit, absolutely top notch.

I am in no way a Doctor Who expert but I believe they changed it to a black background when the series was brought back. I really wanted to backlight the labels but after a few failed attempts at designing a top that would do that I gave up.

If you really want to be correct the sign is illuminated white on a dark blue background.

**Updated instructions with better print settings**

Make sure to download the 'TARDIS_instructions.txt' which has full printing and assembly instructions. Folks seem to be missing that.

If you have a PTouch label maker that interfaces with a computer, use the LBX files for labels, otherwise there are JPGs.

LED holder, batt tray and ring base aren't necessary unless you plan on installing lights.

MakerBot Navy Wool ABS is the perfect TARDIS color.

I will post more details on the lighting at some point.

Has anyone tried printing this with PLA instead of ABS? I have tried a few of the pieces and it starts out great, but always ends up messing up on me. Usually if something isn't going to go well it's right at the beginning, but with the side panels and the base, it's gotten about 50% done or even further before things go south.

I only print PLA, I have made 4 of them now they all printed perfectly. I have posted a pic on the I made one.

Can you post the POLICE BOX label for the top of the side panels with the inverted colors of white text on black background? Also, I can't find any pictures from the show that indicate anything other than the graffiti of BAD WOLF. I don't see where the poster on the small door and the top of the side panels was ever done.Have I missed that somewhere? I don't want to get a lecture from my Dr. Who friends when I give them one and it's wrong. :-)

Labels zip has been updated to include an inverted version of top label as requested. If I recall correctly the TARDIS briefly has all Bad Wolf labels when Rose goes full Bad Wolf. If you Google image search it should pop up.
