  • Finished, 2nd 3D printed model

    The second of two of these large models is completed. I used all Tamiya products on this model, with excellent results. I used their masking tape as well, various sizes, with almost no bleeding. The bleeding I did get was due to the rough finish of the printed parts.nal1ykizv1ck.jpg
    Tamiya is expensive but well worth it, IMO. As with the previous model, the client printed the parts and painted the base. You can see the build process here, scroll down past the Rontgen to view the Forestall; srsprototyping.com/latest-project/3d-printed-models/

  • Finished 3D printed model

    The model, one of two, was printed by the client. I assembled and finished this 28" long beastie. You can see the build process on my web site here, thanks for looking!; http://www.srsprototyping.com/latest-project/3d-printed-models/

  • First 3D model design for printing, Cobra fighter

    The reason for creating this model was to learn a 3D program and 3D printing. A couple of years ago I tried Sketch-up, Blender, but they were not quite working the way I wanted them to. I found 123 Design which was easy and intuitive to create with. Eventually 123D was not supported anymore by Auto Desk, but basic F360 was available to try for free. After being denied and than approved for F360 free version, I've been using it ever since. After playing/learning for a year, I decided to create a physical model based on a design created solely on the computer.

    I had always liked the Viper design created by Brian Larson way back in 2006 or so. So I tried my hand at it. It was slow going as I learned the program, but I eventually created a model ready to print, although somewhat less graceful. Turning the F360 files into STL files was a matter of two clicks.
    I made all of the fitment tolerances as tight as I would if this were a traditional physical model. Everything fit as I designed it when I received the printed parts, so I was quite impressed with the printing process.
    Feed back welcome on the F360 files, it is my first CAD project.

  • Scratch build 24" Super Star Destroyer

    Hello all, been a while since posting a physical model in this forum, if ever?
    This is a 100% scratch build, 24" long model of I.S.S.D. Vengeance, like Vader's ship, only different. It took almost two years to complete while working on other commissions. I used styrene for the hull and detailing as well as small kit parts. It is lighted using A Mad Man lighting kit, who have since sold their product line to Tena Controls. The small Star Destroyers were 3D grown and purchased from a Shapeways users' file. The stand is my own design using brass tubing, store bought wood plaques and a custom made decal from an Etsy store. Link to the build page, scroll down the page a bit; srsprototyping.com/latest-project/

  • My Star Trek Thread

    This secondary hull was the most difficult to machine & carve as a physical master pattern. I only had basic blue prints to work from.
    Yours looks great!

    Very cool to see it in real life! Out of curiosity is any reason given for the "pizza slice" saucer?
    Not as far as I know. It seems to be a popular design.

    How about a shot showing more of the underside? The front view from a little below the saucer rim was always my favorite angle on this ship. :)
    No problem. Don't have that exact angle;

    Cool, like it. Might be a bit too Sovreign-class looking, could just be the bussards though.
    I have to agree. It is the saucer, perhaps keep the saucer round?

    Looks great!
    I just started my journey into computer design after lurking here for years. I am a traditional model maker, have been for decades. ( I'll have to start posting both types of models here.)
    Anyway, I started using Fusion 360 last year and I really like it. My first introduction to that program was 123Design, Autodesk's free version before they stopped supporting it. You can use the free version of F360 as long as you do not make over 100K. I had also tried Blender, but too complicated for me.
    I designed & started printing my first model. I think you will be very pleased with the program. I had started to use Sketchup, but found it limiting in basic shapes, though many use it and create awesome models with it.
    Looking forward to more progress....
