Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
These are amazing!

I can't decide if I would want a model of the Galatea, a Perseus, or a Hercules (Mk. I) more... I'm trying to tell myself I shouldn't consider spending money on something like this, but the FreeSpace fan that has been suppressed inside for so long is screaming that I need one!  :yes:

Great work!

Can you do fanmade ships as well? I'm not requesting you do one, just asking if it's possible.

Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
Yeah - I should be able to print pretty much anything with a model file, though how easy it is depends on the desired model size and complexity. Most stuff should be fine though. :)

Anyway just got the printer back up and running after part of it melted and then shorted when printing that last Orion, so...watch this space!

note the print speed and size of the print area, and the lower number of parts. the printable parts are all on thingverse. i hope he comes out with a competitively priced kit, so i can get everything i need to build one in one package.

Damn.. I hate being the bringer of necrothreads.

How are these going Vasudan Admiral?, I'm interested in a purchase if you are up for it later on.

Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
Oh oops, sorry I went off on holidays the day this was posted, so I'm only seeing this now! I intended to necro this thread when I got back anyway, so this works out nicely.

But yeah I do still make these. :) If anyone is interested, send me a PM with what ship model(s) and you would like, and your preferred bow to stern length and I'll get back to you ASAP.

Firstly, I have a 20cm, (8inch) MVP Orion and stand for sale if anyone is interested?
The fella who asked me to make it sadly seems to have vanished without a trace, so it's currently at the painter's awaiting an owner before it can be painted and make the jump through the local post office node.



===================================================================================
Secondly, I had hoped for some new painted pics, but the painter has been incredibly busy over these past few months so I'll just have to show my own amateur unpainted pics instead:
Lucifer and to-scale retail Orion






Even bigger than the Sathanas, these two models were a bit of a nightmare to print and assemble (the stern of the lucifer practically killed the printer, though the model itself only needed some gap filler to get the surfaces back to rights). The Lucifer came in at about 30cm (12inches).

===================================================================================
Wall mounting
An idea from Cobra, this ended up working really well!




So yeah - future orders can choose whether they want a stand or wall mount. :)

Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
If I had money I'd totally buy that Lucifer off of you if you are selling it, hooooly sheet.

I should get my new Orion done ASAP so you have to reprint. It'll be my special brand of revenge! :P

Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
Thread Necromancing, heyooooo - GamesCom is in august, and after GamesCom is done, I will get myself some money together and get myself a nice, ass-whooping GTD Orion for my desk <3 Love that space brick.

Anyway, how're the chances of getting a UEFg Karuna or a UED Solaris? Figure they might be a bit high-poly and fragile *smirks*
Maybe a UET Upanishad? Pretty please?

... can anyone tell I like the UEF ship designs?

I'd probably need to thicken up some parts but yeah they should be possible. :)
