Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
Right, I wanted one of these... what would the cost be for that Fenris, painted, and shipped to Israel? ;)

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

Any chance you could try making a GTD Hades model? Maybe 10-12 inches long?

Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
Unfortunately the painter seems to have dropped out of contact sorry! :( (We've been out of touch for a while, and... I think he got married and also got a job with more pressing time commitments) I'll let people know if he does reappear.

For the moment then I can really only offer unpainted plastic models of ships, which does feel less cool, but I am happy to do that if people want.

Besides, I want to gauge the cost of owning one of these beauties!

How much would a hi-def Durga about 7" run to?

Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
Let me know if you hear back from your painter or if you find another. I'd be willing to shell out $$$ for a painted SD Ravana between 8-12in. :)

Almost posted "but he's been posting in this board recently!", only to realize that's "That Man" and your painter is "That Guy".

Dang. :(

That Man, he is an imposter. Seize him.

Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
So I was looking to buy crafts from every class except colossus sized ones until I realised that a destroyer to scale of even a 3 cm fighter would be too large for anything.  :(

Still, how much would it cost to have the following:

Cruisers: 2-3 cm x 5
Corvettes: 6-8 cm x 4
Destroyers: 20-21 cm x 2

+1 on the Medusa! 

I'd also like the Pegasus or Herc MK1.


 
Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
Hey guys, hate to bother you, but I could relive some of my childhood dreams if I could get either the Sathanas or the Lucifer printed out. (Preferably the Lucifer, FS1 was my baby).

I have access to a 3D printer and would love a Freespace Christmas. But I NEED stl files to print. Don't know where to get them.

Be sure to upload pics if they come out nicely. :)

(BTW just so people know, I can't make these any more due to a lack of free time. Sorry!)

Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
Are there any guiding for conversion from dae?

 
Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
I'd hate to necro this thread but I really would like to know how does one acquire the STL files. Are they obtainable and convertable somewhere in the game directory, or do you have to manually model and CAD the thing from scratch? I am interested in making more of these printable ship models myself, and perhaps getting them printed too, and with the advent of 3D printing, it'll be great if we could share our STL files publicly. Would be interested to start making models like the Appollo. After all, thats the very first taste of the pilot seat in Freespace, no?  :)

 
Re: 3D-Printed Mini Ship Models!
Those pics are incredible!

I posted a thread about making 3D prints of ships... anyone have any thoughts on converting Freespace's POF files into something a 3D printer can use, like STL or OBJ? I /WILL/ pay money for a Raynor-class destroyer... probably more, if I can get file converters for myself.
