    Duncanator and thegnome, thank you! Duncanator - I've witnessed the geeblies/nurnies etymology discussion in other threads. Thankfully, the etumología of both words engenders a shared nostalgia of modeling legends never forgotten. This post happens to be focused on improving our engine greeblies...

    Y-Wing Build (DaveG Open Source)

    Happy Sunday, I completed the fuselage reprints and CNC'd Tee Plate v2. I printed the parts updated for FDM printers. No supports required and they print quite a bit faster (disclaimer: your results may differ, just like our print profiles). ;) A bit of cleanup and fast placement has me back to...

    Hi Vectorzero! I chose to reprint the parts since I had not yet glued the original armature parts. It was an easy removal and replacement. Dtssyst summarized the changes well. I'm going to post a before/after pic so folks can see the differences. The new parts are beefier overall and simply...

    Hi Everyone, I updated 2 parts to accommodate dtssyst's more accurate dimensions (details in his post in thread Red Jammer Y-Wing Build by dtssyst (DaveG open source): 1. Main Fuselage Mid Starboard/Port Section (.stl) - added 5mm to the length 2. Updated Center Spar V2 (3/4" aluminum channel)...

    An unfortunate event for sure but sounds like you're making the most of it. I've had little time to start placing nurnies on my Y-Wing. I'm taking this as an opportunity to update my armature as well. If you don't mind, I'll DM you a summary of the changes I *think* you're making. Once...

    Wow. This is sweet! Is this a kit or did you scratch build?

    Hello Everyone, I received a massive batch of Y-Wing nurnies from Studio Kitbash and WOW! It's a potent dose of Y-Wing nurnie wizardry. Studio Kitbash sent hundreds of individual parts and many full assemblies. The level of awesome is hard to express. Combining DaveG's armature parts with...

    Hi All, I had a significant fail but overcame. I think there's value in sharing the fails and how things get resolved. Hopefully someone can benefit! The Saturn V pieces I modeled were too tall to print as one piece on my SLA. No worries, that's what model slicing is for. However, I choose...

    Happy Saturday! I've completed the Forward Fuselage print and assembly. This was a bit of an engineering challenge. I had to split top and bottom because the fuselage was ~10mm too wide for my DLP. I went through several design iterations to find a good split line that minimized sanding...

    Merry Christmas! I've been working on modeling the Nacelle Clips. DaveG's source files were missing the front scoop so I used what was there as a baseline. I also reviewed Studio Kitbash's excellent part breakdown. I modeled the original parts individually and cut them relative to the method...

    Thanks Dave! I can't thank you enough for your open source contributions. I'm going to do the same with my studio scale ED-209 build when I pick it back up. I've been modeling and printing like crazy. Finished the Saturn V shell 3D model and started the prints. I had to split/slice each shell...

    Yes, agreed! Every print that comes out of that printer amazes me. The quality it produces for such a relatively low cost is outstanding.
