The Time Machine

The Time Machine 3D print model


H. G. Wells' Time Machine as seen in the 1960 american science fiction film directed by George Pal.

Here's an accurate and high detailed 3d model based on the movie itself, production blueprints found on the internet and photos of current replicas of the original prop.

*** Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have before making the purchase. ***

Pre-supported stl's and assembly instructions included.

An inventor in Victorian England constructs a machine that enables him to travel into the distant future; once there, he discovers that mankind's descendants have divided into two species, the passive, childlike, and vegetarian Eloi and the underground-dwelling Morlocks, who feed on the Eloi.

George Pal, who had made the first film version of Wells' The War of the Worlds (1953), always intended to make a sequel to The Time Machine, but he died before it could be produced; the end of Time Machine: The Journey Back functions as a sequel of sorts.

Please, if you like the product, rate it. Thank you in advance.

Update (12/22/2021): jneps (Thank you, Jeff!) suggested a version of the big rear dish with smooth surface to facilitate the application of decals. I included it as an option in a separate file.

La Máquina del Tiempo de H. G. Wells basada en la película estadounidense de ciencia ficción de 1960 dirigida por George Pal.

Este es un muy detallado y preciso modelo 3d basado en capturas de la misma película, planos de producción y fotos encontradas en la web de varias réplicas conocidas.

*** Por favor, no dudes en hacer todas las preguntas que necesites antes de efectuar la compra. ***

Se incluyen archivos stl pre soportados, además de instrucciones para el armado.

Un inventor de la Inglaterra victoriana construye una máquina que le permite viajar a un futuro distante; una vez allí, descubre que los descendientes de la humanidad se han dividido en dos especies: los pasivos, vegetarianos e infantiles Eloi y los Morlocks, habitantes subterráneos que se alimentan de los Eloi.

George Pal, quien también produjo la primera versión de la novela del Wells La Guerra de los Mundos (1953), siempre tuvo la intención de realizar una continuación de La Máquina del Tiempo, pero falleció antes de poder concretarla; el final de La Máquina del Tiempo: El Camino de Regreso funciona como una especie de secuela.

Por favor, si te gusta este modelo, ranquéalo. Gracias de antemano.

Actualización (22/12/2021): jneps (Gracias, Jeff!) sugirió una versión del gran disco trasero con superficie lisa para facilitar la aplicación de calcomanías. La incluyo en un archivo separado.

The part labeled Upper Lamp is damaged and the slicer doesn't show part of the brackets surrounding the bulb in preview mode and won't print properly. Update: The author quickly supplied a replacement part for use with FDM printers and it works great!

I already gave you a solution for this, please make that clear so that others don't think that the model is actually damaged.

Between part diagrams 17 & 19 I think you forgot to add the small dish that's added to the axle. Only shows up at the end on 19.

All in all an nice to build model. Some of the pre-supportet parts should be supported by myself, but at last everything fits well together. Great job. I think I will make an second one for myself, maybe at 125%. This one was an gift to a friend.

Very detailed and beautiful model. Was very pleased with the overall project (which I gifted to my neighbor for Christmas) who was also very pleased. Very fine detailing and The3DModelMaker provides Multiple files, supported and raw as well as pictured assembly instructions. I used an Anycubic Photon Mono X to print and I ran into a few minor compatibility issues that were easily fixed by redoing my own supports on a couple items. To reduce the common brittle nature of resin I used a Siriya Tech Fast ABS like resin mixed with Tenacious 85/15. This gave the smaller pieces a little elasticity and durability which was vital to completing the build. One suggestion that I could offer perhaps to really make this STL stand out, is some support peg and slots to increase durability and assist in alignment of parts. Lastly the seller was very responsive and helpful. I have my eye on another of his STLs and I look forward to seeing what else he makes!

Wow! What a fantastically acurate model of the original 1960 The Time Machine model. I have been dreaming about owning one of these for decades. Actually too complicated to make from found objects, this is the perfect "fix' for anyone who loves the movie and this iconic prop. 5 Stars!!!
