Spool Towers - Brutalist Hab Block
A brutalist monolith of woe. perfect for your stay in our town!
Spool Towers - Brutalist Hab Block - STL
What better way to complete your dreary existence in dystopia land by drudging your way home to the top of a dilapidated monolith of brutalist architecture.
This bundle provides parts to make a ring of facias to surround old empty filament spools and use them to make a massive tower block as big as you dare, there is a central pin to hold the spools together, you may need to scale to suit although we have tried to cater for the most common sizes.
This design was the inspiration behind our current kickstarter. We took the concept and shook it on its head, bringing a much more efficient design, less filament and zero supports.
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.
