    He guys. :)

    Yep, I've been trying to get screencaps made of this thing, but some areas are still not quite clear. Hopefully we'll get some BTS renders or something. :D I already did Discovery, I just need to get it painted! :D

    Shenzhou should be done in about a week. ;)

    Haha, It definitely is a powerful feeling. :) I haven't been buying models lately myself, but mainly because I've been printing stuff for everyone else! I was telling someone the other day, that I don't even have much of my stuff on display at the house, because I never have time to build myself any.

    I use Makerware, with it's built in slicer. I've tried Simplfy 3D because I wanted to be able to design my own support material, but I didn't really like it. I used Repetier once, and really didn't like that. ;)

    I have a reliant that I had done, but I need to update my 3D files of it. It has a few problems that need attention, ha.

    More soon!

    Cool.

    Supposedly Meshmixer has great supports. You then export the STL (supports and all) to your slicer and print. Voila.

    Are you using the same printer, or a new one?

    The old one is still going strong, but I got a new one about 6 months ago too. :) Very similar, but the new QIDI printer has a metal frame, upgraded nozzles and stuff. :) It's hard to believe I've been using the original Flashforge for over 4 years now!

    Got a few things to show off... I finished my Shenzhou!

    Haha, not much. :D Between work, family, my 5 year old, and shipping out models, there isn't much. ;)

    Oh, and a Hurricane coming through today, really don't have time for that!

    Yep, it's in my list! The Yeager one is looking pretty cool too, I'll probably do that one pretty soon. :) BTW, did you design all the Klingon ships for this show, because they look like it!

    Working on a bunch of paintjobs right now, but I'll have a bunch of pics up tomorrow. :)

    Sweet to hear on the Europa!
    Unfortunately no, I did design the klinks or anything for the show, but thanks for the consideration :)

    The Yeager would definitely be my vote to try next, although I'm not sure we got a good rear view.

    Thanks!
    The Orville, yep. The Raza is the one that SyFy put out a while back, I just did some tweaks to the STL files to make them print better. :)
