Quote from: The14thDr on Jan 29, 2017, 07:47 pmFor the measurements, I'm thinking this is 3" in diameter (including the beads.) That would make the seal itself roughly 5-1/2" in diameter.

Quote from: galacticprobe on Jan 31, 2017, 07:54 amThe measurements here are a bit confusing. (I think you may have meant 3" in diameter not including the beads, to get a total Seal diameter of 5 1/5".)Looking at both versions of the prop (Classic and New), it looks like the whole thing might be a bit smaller - maybe 4" in diameter total. If we used those 1/4th-inch diameter beads to go round the outside, that would be 1/2-inch worth, which would make the seal part 3 1/2" in diameter.

Quote from: Davros Skaro on Jan 31, 2017, 08:07 amI remember seeing/reading somewhere that it was 3'' in diameter, but can't for the life of me think or find where. Sooo .... I would say 3' seems to be the agreeable size, not including beads.Chris.
Quote from: The14thDr on Jan 31, 2017, 05:21 pmHere's a quick version of the Seal that I threw together. It's not perfect, but I don't really have the modelling skills to modify the seal so that it matches the screen-used version (I'm just working with an existing file that I had downloaded on my laptop.)
Quote from: The14thDr on Jan 31, 2017, 05:21 pmLooking at screencaps from The Time of the Doctor, I think the seal looks slightly thinner than the beads - closer to 5mm (~0.2mm) than the 6.35mm (0.25") of the beads. What are everyone else's thoughts on this?
Quote from: galacticprobe on Feb 01, 2017, 05:28 amNow the New Seal is an actual 3-D prop (as in not a paper "stick-on over a ring") with the beads around it, and the beads do look like they're a tad larger than the thickness of the New Seal. So, how is this for a proposal?Mix and match: make the 3-D model to be used for printing the same thickness as the beads (1/4th-inch). This way it can hopefully please the fans of both versions. With things being the same thickness it would certainly be a nice crossover that could be used for the Classic as well as the New.Does that make sense?Dino.
