RabbitEngineering has posted STL files (under the Creative Commons – Attribution – Non-Commercial license) for 3-D printing a Model I, including monitor, expansion interface, and disk drives.

Finally plugging a big hole in my collection, the TRS80 Model I! This thing was a true powerhouse in the late 70s, and has a lot of fans. This version includes all the trimmings – expansion system, disk, the works – enjoy!

Print in four colors – black, silver, white (the Enter key) and red (the power LED). Follow the photos to see colors for the rest of the parts.

When you are done, you should be able to slip in the paper screens into the slot on the left of the monitor, so ensure there are no bits of support or other obstructions when you print and glue those pieces.

The files and details can be downloaded from or from here.
