Learning from the Noobverse for all the noobs having fun with the UM3

OK, just finished cutting up the Supersized Enterprise with all the attendant parts. 29 in all. That includes the ship and all the tabs that go into the slots to guide and hold the pieces.

But, this thread is long enough. When the large Sized print comes off, in about 40 hours, I will post pics for that and then this thread is finished on my end. The supersized Enterprise will be a whole noobverse learning thingy.

That thing was a bear to engineer LOL o_O

    Well, almost time to roll out the models. Below is the 1/4th sized instructions as a preview. When I printed the full size model, it ran into a problem (temporary under-extrusion) right at the deflector dish. So, that got me to thinking about providing a fix for people so they did not have to cut up the model themselves. THEN I got to thinking about printing without supports. THEN I got to thinking about the different ways it may need to be printed to get cleaner results at lower Resolution 3D Nozzles a.k.a. 0.2mm and larger. So, it is a 3 Pak! And, the second version has two different saucer configurations. Tabs are easy to sync up with the placements. Now that I have all of the parts for the Supersized and 14 Inch versions, I just have to get them together with the full sized instruction sheets and upload them. :PA most decidedly set of Retro designs.


    Woulda done something like this, but I do not want to waste time illustrating it, nor will I crib other's artwork, even for a gag......


    Never had a girlfriend that looked lovingly at MY models that way...sheesh...coulda been a contender!! LOL

    Nice idea with multiple models!


    Thank you. It was the biggest reason it took so long.....try idea, wait for print, try new idea, wait for print, etc.
