Spool Tower - Observatory
This observatory is just the ticket for seeing whats happening on the orbitals today.
Spool Tower - 3D Printable Multi-level Modular Terrain System – Observatory - STL
Science and alchemy go hand in hand. Since time began, we have looked up to the stars for a deeper meaning to the great questions. Now you can recycle your waste spool using science to make an observatory complete with telescope for seeing the night sky, or even spying on the orbitals.
This Tower includes a base level and a large dome topper with doors and a telescope.
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 zero supports, using minimal filament to create detailed facades. These facades require a structure to allow them to become a multi-layer terrain system. Upcycling your old waste spool, you can now make stackable modular scenery towers for your table top gaming environments.
The detailed fitting instructions will explain how to scale or alter any of the panels to fit your empty 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 used 1kg spool of approximate 200mm diameter x 55mm internal height x 85mm centre post diameter and an edge thickness of 3.5mm.
If your empty spool is close to these dimensions you will have no trouble fitting these.
If your dead 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.
