Description

If anyone wants this in something other than plastic, I uploaded it to Shapeways. http://www.shapeways.com/model/949238/tardis-stash-box.html

Its bigger on the inside.

The 2nd and 3rd file are the top and bottom split. The 4th file is the top altered to fit the bottom better after printing. I made the groves larger by about .5mm

Hi Hendo,

This looks bloody brilliant, and almost the thing I have been looking for! I am trying to build a mediaPC for my best mate as a surprize, built around the Raspberry PI computer. As he's a HAUGE Whovian (like me!), I want to put the PI into a TARDIS case. I have looked at ways and ways of doing this, but nothing really fits the bill, so 3D printing seems my only solution. Your design here seems a perfect solution, and genuinely (as a fan of the show) I am impressed with your attention to detail on it.

I have utterly no experience in 3D printing or design, so would have to send a final design off for printing by a service in Europe somewhere. However, I'm not sure how I should edit your designs to make a mounting place for a PI computer, a USB powered hub, or some of the external ports I'd need to install, like audio jack out, HDMI out, 2 USB out and a power in for the USB hub. I'd also like to edit the design a tiny bit more to put air vents in the base I can mount a fan over to draw air through the TARDIS when the PI is playing 1080P video. For venting heat at the top, I'm thinking skip printing the windows, and just leave holes I can mount white cloth behind and also backlight.

I appreciate you posted this design for free, having done it in your own time, and I really can't thank you enough for being so kind as to do that. As I said, your attention to detail is superb, and I know the TARDIS!! If you would be willing to help me make the adjustments though, I would be so grateful. I think we could come up with a wicked little case anyone would be proud to have beside their TV, a genuine geek talking point, that is useful too!! If you would spare the time to help make the adjustments, I'll put together any software hacks and a hardware design to complete the PI internals. I am quite good at hacking around with the PI, at hardware and software level, and I think we could make this a fun project anyone could complete at home.

Again, thank you so much for sharing your design though, and please let me know your thoughts on my ideas. I'd very much enjoy the challenge of making this happen!

Kindest Regards,

you could try filing the top of the main body that goes inside of the lid. I printed one and got it to fit but it took a little bit of clean up.
I just finished printing this out and the lid doesn't fit at all. 6+ hours of printing and nearly $5 worth of plastic later. I'm not a very happy camper right now.

Great work, printed it out at 60% size on my rep 2 and it is AMAZING. Thank you for this!
I printed this in clear blue and you cna actually see through the panels.like a smoke screen. I love it. Only one problem. The lid is too small. If you can break the files appart for the list and box, I will reprint the lid a little bigger so it will fit. It also looks like the box top lip is to think to fit into the lid. Printed it at .27 on a Rep2.
For the grooves in the lid I cut them out with a copy of the Main body. Maybe you are getting flexing. Gimi a few mins and I will split it into 2 files for you. The idea I had was for the glass to be thin enough for light to get through then put leds behind them.
It is possible that there was shrinkage in the lid. Thank you for the split. As for the thin windows: I LOVE THEM!! This is going to make a "Who" fan I know VERY happy. Thank you for this one.
Now that I know its printable I'm working on some variations. My printer wont be here for like 3 or 4 more weeks. I'm so impatient :D
I printed the newly modified top and it fits tightly without any modifications or cleanup.. As for you wondering if it prints, It printed perfectly even the long bridging in the lid went without a single fiber lost.
Was that the lid I modified, or did you scale up the first one?
That was the modified lid. It is still a but tight on the new print, but It works perfect this way, It just makes it a little hard to get into it after it is closed.
My printer came in a few days ago, I'm getting confident in larger builds so I'm gonna print this tomorrow. :D Any tips? Layer height? Infill? Rafting? ect How long did it take you to print?
I apologize for the delay in answering. I printed it using Makerware. I used the default settings for med. .27 layer, 130c. Worked first try. :) Hopefully yours turned out well?
