3D model description

A modern DIY celebration of 80s computing, the GRIZ Sextant is a Raspberry Pi powered laptop built to pay homage to the laptops of the 1980s.

The design inspiration (both looks and name) for this comes from the real life GRID Compass, a trail blazer in portable computing.

Some other smaller aesthetic features were inspired by the Commodore 64.

Included are all the 3D print parts you will need as well as a Bill of Material, part tapping guide, and some custom labels.

All parts are designed to fit on an 8x8 build platform. Printing large parts may cause warping. Best results I have found are to print in an enclosure without a cooling fan.
