"Warning! Mega powered aliens approaching.... the Earth needs your help!"
So you've got a super base but you're still stuck with that hand me down laptop you used back in college... that's no way to be a super hero! Time for an upgrade!
The Master Base Computer is a perfect addition to any super hero or villain base. It is also perfect for a variety of other genres, settings, and interests. This model is printed in two different parts. The first is the main body of the computer while the second part file is the large screen monitor.
The default size settings are perfect for miniatures on the 28mm to 30mm scale. Naturally this item can be resized in your slicer program to meet your needs if your miniatures are on a different scale.
Here’s the default dimensions for each file:
Master Computer Main Body: 78mmx56mmx30mm
Master Computer Monitor: 64mmx64mmx8mm
Many folks often ask the designer what settings are recommended for printing various files. Depending on your printer, your slicer program, your choice of materials, etc. these recommendations can change. The designer tests these files on a Qidi X-Smart (using the native Qidi slicer), an Ender 3 printer (using Cura), and an Ender 5 (using Cura for the slicer). Of all of these the most common option for most hobbyists would be the Ender 3 with settings in Cura. Here's the recommended Cura settings that have worked for the designer's test print using the following: Ender 3 (printer), Hatchbox 1.75 PLA. Please note that these settings print very slow, but should provide you a nice finish with details. You can always speed the settings up if you prefer speed over fine detail.
