Spool Tower - Planetary Defense Laser
Sometimes the only option is a bigger gun!
Spool Tower 3D Printable Modular Scenery – Planetary Defence Rail Gun accessory pack - STL
The planetary defence rail gun is designed as a response to not only the lingering threat of alien contact but also to keep the balance of power with the denizens of the orbitals
The planetary defence laser is a large multipart model that doesn’t hide the spool but adds to it to make the spool the main part of its structure. It also uses lengths of old filament to make cables or pipework which are key to any big energy weapon to function.
The drive sprocket can be removable so it can make a great objective marker.
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.
