TARDIS Finished

Finally I finished my TARDIS model. Yes, Doctor Who’s famous time travelling device can now sit on your office desk at 5 cm in height. This has been a lot of work. Modelled in SketchUp, of which I am no master, it took three attempts before I got a model I was happy with. One of the biggest problems at the outset was finding scale diagrams on the ‘net, primarily because there is no such thing as THE Tardis; there were many variations of the Police Box over the (to date) 18 seasons of Doctor Who. In the end I went with making it as close as possible to the one used in the last season.

Because of the small size of the model I had to remove the handles. At one tenth of a millimetre the handle’s thickness just would not have survived the printing process.

Below are various renders of the model. The cost in SWF material is $19.

Edit 7th Aug 2010: I have designed a pendant/earring based on this model, 3.1cms in height, and added an image at the bottom.
