  • 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.

    Thanks for looking, updates as I get further along on the build.

    Great work on such a forced original design. This is from that old poster, correct? I have a copy of that somewhere.

    Really liking the forms you have. FWIW, I like the the thrusters as add-on, as if they were manufactured as a unit and inserted into the hull. Just my ¢2.
