This Past Week....The Target Tree
Christmas is around the corner, or maybe more accurately it's just down the street and getting closer. This month so far we've been 3D Printing a bunch of computer products. First an 80's style data tape backup machine, then an 80's style terminal computer. Then we went back to basics printing an updated version of our very first original 3D Printed prop -- the "radio chair."
All of this together we wanted to begin setting the mood for a Christmas theme. Earlier in the week we were at Target and came across a small Christmas tree for the table-top Christmas town displays folks sometimes set up during the season. This one was lighted and would make for a nice Christmas tree display with some action figures, a few presents, and so forth. But with so many computer props being printed we thought what a better way to display the Christmas theme with this month's production run in a small corner of a computer lab in a Cobra base.
Fortunately we can print however many props we need. What you see in this diorama are the excess props -- the ones we use for our own diorama's, and not the ones already printed for selling in the DW Store. Our personal stash. Really, in truth we are preparing for a presence at next year's Joe Con in Colorado. So we've been printing extras which has add to our busy printing schedule. But more about that later.
The props for this scene are the following: Computer Terminal, Computer Table, Radio Chair, Computer Rack Components, Desktop LCD Monitor, barrel (ver 2), Greek vase, water bottles, and the Zombie Lab diorama that appeared at the 2014 Joe Con.
