I will never be able to create masterpieces like this sculpture by [mushogenshin](https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:571784), but I did want to add a base to it - all great busts need a base!
The original model (I based this on version 3) was done in inches, so the first thing I did was convert it to millimeters. Once that was done, I added a three tier base along with a nameplate with Tesla's name. I realized, though, that I really didn't have anywhere to put this at it's original size, so I shrunk it down to 75%. When I did that, though, the lines forming some of the segments of the full name "Nikola Tesla" were too small to be printed. I could have went with a different font, but I liked that one :P So I created a second version with a smaller nameplate with just the last name "Tesla" on it. When the plate is scaled down to 75% (only in the X and Y axis) this still prints fine. Finally, there is a third option without any nameplate at all if you prefer that look.
So, to recap:
**NikolaTesla_wBase** = *no nameplate and can be printed down to 75%*
**NikolaTesla_wBase-Nameplate_v1** = *full name on plate, **cannot** be scaled down*
**NikolaTesla_wBase-Nameplate_v2** = *last name on plate, **can** be scaled down to 75%*
Be sure to print the corresponding nameplate that goes with the version you choose and only scale the nameplate in the X/Y direction.
