Spool Tower - Elevator Accessory pack
This is your lightning fast way to the top
Spool Tower - Elevator Accessory pack – STL
This elevator expansion pack features a glueless snap fit cage and a clip together formwork that makes a moving elevator that extends to 200mm tall. The cage features print in place moving doors and a ratchet mechanism that will lock the elevator at the set floors. The landings for the floors are configurable to any height and can be set to match whatever spool height you have. There are clips from the landings that attach the formwork to the tower.
This is a technical model with tight tolerances and it is vital to have the first layer go down properly. Take your time when printing and building this model.
The elevator has been tested supporting heavy metal miniatures
This STL file is designed for FDM Printers and print with a 0.4mm nozzle at 0.2mm layer height
Supports are not needed for this model.
The printed model measures approx.:
200mm x 60mm x 80mm @28mm Scale
This STL pack is designed to be printed without supports with a 0.4mm nozzle at 0.2mm layer height.
No supports and spool recycling
Our spool towers have been developed to print with no supports, using minimal filament to create detailed facades. These facades require a structure to allow them to become a multi-layer terrain system. Using your old waste spool you can now make stackable modular scenery towers for your table top gaming shenanigans.
The detailed fitting instructions will explain how to scale or alter any of the panels to fit your spools. In many cases just rescaling some panels using our scale calculator will be enough. In other cases we have included cover strips and edging panels to help hide joins.
These models are designed for a spool of approximate 200mm diameter x 55mm internal height x 85mm centre post diameter and an edge thickness of 3.5mm.
If your spool is close to these dimensions you will have no trouble fitting these to your spools.
If your spools are way out then we have a few infill pieces and scaling tricks to help you but you may have to use some modelling and painting skills to finish it off.
We have a handy calculator for resizing files for 3D printing over at scale-converters
It is designed for 28mm table top games such as:
Judge Dredd, Necromunda, Fallout Wasteland, Infinity, Konfilkt ’47, Kill Team, WH40K, sci-fi RPG’s and Star Wars Legion. It also adds flavour to RPG’s such as SLA Industries and Paranoia!

Some of the images supplied are computer generated and are for reference. They are images of the files that will be 3D printed.
Print in place parts may need some work to loosen them up after print. Once free, run them through full travel several times to wear them in.
