Re: 3D Printing

What about a model of a TOS era pistol phaser? Is the 3d printing process sturdy enough that a phaser can be handled? Or are they fragile?

Re: 3D Printing

Yeah, that wouldn't be a problem. The models are pretty tough... I actually closed a part in the car door the other day, and it survived.

I'm planning on doing a tricorder for myself soon.

Re: 3D Printing

Since I saw the OP, I began to read about this 3D print stuff. I'm really impressed. Then some days ago a comb of my hair clipper broke and there is no replacement available. If I had a 3D printer, I could make a new part. Since I don't, I'll get hairy.

Awesome, can't wait to see you do more. I'm really hoping you'll sell versions of your prints. I would love the have your versions of the Jjverse ships.

Well, my plans are to make a model out of all of my 3D ships, but that will take a while.

I'm definitely still thinking of selling kits and completed models, too, but I've got some things to figure out first. Not sure how I'm going to get started. E-Mail me if there is something specific you are thinking about.

Made a fair amount of progress on Reliant... It all fits together! I did a little bit of sanding and cleanup too, but a lot of that left to go.





I've only got 4 little pieces of tape holding it together, and it's pretty solid.

More pics later.

Re: 3D Printing

Yep, I'm working on them slowly but surely.

I have about half of this ship printed out now:

When I get the engines printed out, I'll take some more pics.

Things have been busy the last few weeks... I don't even think I had a chance to turn on the printer last week!

Re: 3D Printing

Ricky,

Have you given any thought to the scale? Polar's coming out with a 1/1000 Miranda later this year, and I'd love to have yours to park beside it.

Re: 3D Printing

Not really... so far, I've been focusing on printing this as large as I can, and making sure everything fits together.

I could easily resize any of these models though, so I could make it 1/1000, or the same size as the Miranda kit, anyway.

The one I have now, is almost exactly as long as the 1/1000 PL TOS Enterprise kit.

I'd definitely love for you to have one.

Re: 3D Printing

How's the print of the Valiant going? What's the average print time for all the pieces? I'd love to get a printer but I have zero skill with 3d models whatsoever....

Re: 3D Printing

It's coming along... I've got the main hull printed, and the two secondary hulls.

Working on converting the engines now.
