I actually have this same translucent blue TV and an RPI 3 running Kodi (amazing) and plan to make one of these. It looks like the main body is too big to fit on the bed of my PowerSpec Ultra (FF Dreamer). I seem to recall that someone cut it down but I only find one of the parts of the smaller body and I am not sure what the IPT source files are from but rest assured I don't have it. I built the American Craftsman Bungalow which was not only a work of art but so nicely broken up to fit on most print beds. Is there already a version of Phil that is split up more? Is there a front panel missing? I pulled everything into Simply3D to "Assemble" it and make sure it all fit before printing any of the parts and there is a large hole in the front bezel of the body that looks like it should have a plate. Again, this is a fantastic model and I have ALWAYS wanted a TV like PHIL so any help would be appreciated.

It looks AMAZING!!! Where can I find a CRT tube like that?

I discovered the Philcos on ebay a while back and have lusted after one ever since. I'm gonna have to make one now.

Super cool!

This is going to be one of my first prints on my Cobblebot printer once it gets to me in December. Are all the parts available? I have already found all the parts you list except whatever you use to supply power to all your parts. I already had one of these TVs from old hurricane supplies. I am also am wanting to use your design for a retro gaming station for this emulator program I backed on kickstarter.

Amazing fusion of modern tech, with old world styling. Beautiful does not even begin to describe it...

Rather than just complain, I was able to export the STL for printing the smaller version of the main body file. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:165388http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

OK, so I just wasted hours and hours printing this and sourcing the components only to discover the current uploaded STL files do NOT match. The Body and the Rear are obviously from different versions. Just a heads up before you waste about 20-30 hours of printing time.
FWIW, it is a very cool design and the rest of the parts seem to be OK, it's just the main body (the black parts) are from mismatched versions. Maybe if you export from the source zip?
Again, just take this as a warning before spending hours printing and a lot of plastic, only to find that it doesn't line up.

I get it. It looks like at one point there was effort to split the large parts into smaller ones for printing. The problem is, the wrong versions are posted. I know this is harsh, but if it helps one other person check before they spend days printing then it's worth it.

This is great. I had one of those TV sets sitting around waiting for a project. Thanks for your great design.

It looks as though your upload is missing "bodyrear" and the complete body is just a tiny bit too big to print on a replicator. Would you be able to upload bodyrear?

You Sir rock to a level that transcends measure!!!!!

I absolutly love it, It's too adorable. It reminds me of the TV that I watched @ KOA campgrounds when I was a kid lol.

This is amazing! It's almost like a streamlined next generation of the CRT workstations from the film Brazil.

Exactly what CRT did you use? 5" I guess but what particular make/model?

This is the new, only thing I've ever wanted. Though sadly I've no tiny B/W CRT's.
Got any pics of the screen up and running?

There! Photos and a video uploaded!

I do! And a video that I will be uploading later today! You can buy this one if you'd like ^___^

very cool! I have a couple old b&w CRT sets; I may try making one of these eventually. nice!
