Good luck getting your hands on an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080—it’s the hottest selling GPU right now, along with the much more expensive 3090. But while you might not be able to find one in stock for a bit, you can 3D print a miniature replica that is also a piggy bank.
Take those sour lemons and make some sweet lemonade, in other words. Use it as a swear jar to fast track your savings (if you have a potty mouth), or otherwise just keep dumping change into the thing until you’ve saved up enough coin to fund a GPU upgrade. Hopefully by the time you do, there will be ample stock. Or you could be ironic and save up for a Radeon RX 6000 card, which AMD suggests will be in ample supply.
Regardless, the design is the creation of Nils Kal, who uploaded the schematic to Prusa Printers (via OC3D). It is “scaled down a bit to fit on the MK3 print bed,” but you can scale it to 142 percent if you want a true-to-life replica of the Founders Edition model. There is also a schematic that nixes the money slot.
