Eiffel Tower w/ BlinkM Elevator

Did you 3D print this model?

3D model description

This eiffel tower was printed for the owner of a local hardware store (http://www.bevellshardware.com/) who builds a tremendous model train set in his store for Christmas every year. In a town of 3500 people, he brings in over 40000 people to see his train set. Its truly an amazing site.

I used the five part Eiffel Tower model (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:49131)

Along with

(http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:32825 )

for the tower, but the very tip of the tower as not printing well. So I decided to slice the top, and print it separately.

I wanted to make it extra special for the hardware store owner, so I added an elevator using (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:52575).

I took the above file and modified it to hold a BlinkM in the top using

(http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:25625) as the base for my BlinkM. Then I hung the elevator so the windows peak through the middle section of the Eiffel Tower.
