Fallout Holodisk/Holotape Replica by Hyena_Of_Doom Oct 17, 2012

Description

This is a replica of a Holotape/Holodisk from Fallout 3/New Vegas. I based this design on the in game texture as the in game model for this item is just a rectangle. I’ve tried to keep it as accurate as possible but the only source image is the 128x128 texture which isn’t very detailed so I improvised a little with some parts.
I designed this to fit the 4mm tape found in a conventional audio cassette and to have a fully operational mechanism so it should be theoretically possible to make a fully working player for one of these with a little effort.

edit:- just added a new pic of the inside with the tape installed

Update:- it Works! sort of, just did a very quick and dirty test with parts from an old walkman and a dirll and it plays, not very well but with a proper player it would be much better. see here youtube.com/watch?v=aM91xYbEtww

how did you guys print the little overhangs for the bottom reels because they seem to sink for me and make the reels slinde around in the casing instead of sitting on the rings?

it looks amazing, i just need to add the tape to the spools, and im going to make/design a sleeve so i dont have to dirty it up for it to look right, instead it will be a brand new prewar model ;)
That’s intentional; the drilled hole is much smoother
than a printed one allowing them to spin more easily.

Instructions

Print two of both reel halves and two guides and one of each of the other parts. All parts can be printed without support. To fit together 4 M3 screws are needed (between 6MM and 10MM long). To make the item fully operational as well you would need the tape from a cassette and an extension spring or small rubber band.

I noticed after printing that the tape guides need to be drilled out a little to fit on the tape slide.

It actually looks like there'd be enough space inside the tape to install the guts from a walkman and maybe even a small speaker behind that grille.
Now that would be cool.
I'm gonna make one of these and leave it lying around the back of the man cave to see who recognises it :) Big grin.
Absolutely amazing, thank you!
This. Is. Incredible!
