Here's a little 3D Print of the newest Tissue Compression Eliminator as seen in Spyfall and The Timeless Children. I found the STL on the 3D Printing Doctor Who site.

It was printed in 4 parts in PLA on a Creality Ender-3 Printer with PLA. I used a 0.12mm layer height with an infill of 20% but this isn't necessary. I then went on to sand all the pieces with 120 and then 180 grit sand paper before priming and sanding again with a 400 grit sand paper (100, 200, 300 and 400 grit would be a better use but I was unable to get those) and then it was painted using a variety of enamel and acrylic paints. I used a range of brush sizes for these but I believe the gold can be airbrushed or spray painted on.

The Paints I used were:
- Humbrol MET 51 (Sunset Metallic Red)

-Tamiya Color XF-1 Flat Black
-Tamiya Color XF-1 Metallic Blue
-Tamiya Color XF-1 Chrome Silver
-Tamiya Color XF-1 Gold Leaf

I chose to paint the emitter silver since I did not have a resin printer available to me, but using resin could print a better clear emitter.

Please note I'm colourblind so these may not be the best choices of colour. I used my grandmother to help guide me but we were working off the photo on the previously mentioned site as there aren't many clear references.TCE.jpg
