With the recent release of the new apple tv series, Foundation based on the amazing books of Issac Asimov.

wiki description-

---Asimov presents the Prime Radiant, a device designed by Hari Seldon and built by Yugo Amaryl, as storing the psychohistorical equations showing the future development of humanity.... Control operates through the power of the mind, allowing the user to zoom in to details of the equations, and to change them.---

I really liked the look of the shiny sci fi
macguffin, and jumped into CAD to make my own, using some pretty decent close up screen grabs and some highly scientific mk1 eyeball measurements I think I got mine pretty close.

printing-
I printed mine on a Peopoly Phenom using Siraya Tech resins, "Simple Clear" and "Fast Grey".

The outer shell is printed in two parts, the shell and lid. Both are printed with the center square face directly on the build plate with no need for supports, there is almost no need for sanding. Just the 4 edges on each part to remove the elephants bulge from the first layer over exposure. Beyond that I did some light sanding with 800 grit to knock down any pixel texture before clear coating to get more optical clarity. The more work you do with sanding and prep the Better your results will be.

The internal Lattice structure is made up of just 2 different part types, 6x a cubic trapezoids and 8x Triangle trapezoids. I printed mine all at once using fine supports, the Lattices are made of only 1mm cross section beams so they are fragile, be smart with how you do your supports and be patient with post processing to remove the supports. I used my airbrush to base coat them all black, then dry brush with some metallic paint to add some depth and texture.

The last part is optional since its unclear whats actually in the core of the Prop, I looked really hard at super slow mo hundreds of times and the best I can tell is they added some kind of CGI effect in the very center. So I just made a geometric shape the fills the empty space and is printed solid, the shape has some inclusion facets to create more light refraction. My real world attempt at a subtle CGI effect.

All up there are 5x STL files in total, the display stand is not included as I designed it after making this. BUT!!

The Display stand can be found here for free
