    The Y-Wing "Green Leader" Project - NOW OPEN SOURCE!

    Automotive stuff will do the job. :thumbsup Shapeways really can be a nightmare. And great. It's a lottery. :lol

    Sounds good. It's a ripped mesh though right? Lots of work to make those printable. IIRC someone around here was already doing a *really* nice Normandy for print (Normandy 1, I think?) with a lot of nifty working features. Gotta find that thread again. Yeah, give it a try. I think 256GB is...

    1/700 & 1/350 scale BH Cygnus builds

    Arrgh. I wonder why Dave and I were working to such different scales on the main antennas? Oh well, noted anyway and onwards and upwards. About to PM you btw.

    1/700 & 1/350 scale BH Cygnus builds

    Re: 1/700 & 1/350 scale BH Cygnus builds NP! Have been tied up with another project this week but will get more stuff done soon. Actually what might be easiest is if you order the parts and I just Paypal the cost back to you. Incidentally, new material just debuted! Black detail acrylate -...

    You might be surprised. In 2012 I added an SSD as system drive to a system I built in 2006; that change alone enabled me to load and rotate 2-4GB models quickly. On the spindle drive I'd been using prior, they were loadable but changes were taking 10-30 seconds to display. The previous drive was...

    1/24 Salzo 2x Studio Scale AT AT RECAST ALERT

    Sorry to hear about this, Mike. Nobody deserves to be recast, but of all the people it could happen to, why you?!? You give some of the best service and lowest prices in the business. ****ty.

    Is your system based around an SSD or HDD? If HDD, you'll get much much better results with Rhino using an SSD. Single best PC upgrade ever! My wife's into fan art...I'll let her know about your tip...ta!

    The Y-Wing "Green Leader" Project - NOW OPEN SOURCE!

    Dave now I *have* to attempt the cores at home, haha. Curse you. :) Seriously, I agree with Joe, they're beautiful and I want to do them myself. I completely grok your design philosophy and didn't assume you had any intention of revisiting them. I suspect my printer will handle them OK, it's...

    Up until October 2014 that would have worked, you'd have halved the cost. Until then, low-density objects were heavily advantaged by their pricing algorithm; after they changed it it became more the opposite - high-density and low-volume (or nestable) objects now get the better pricing...

    The Y-Wing "Green Leader" Project - NOW OPEN SOURCE!

    :lol I use Cura too, I actually like it a lot for some things. Beats the heck out of the Slic3r/Pronterface combo, at any rate. I've avoided the last couple of Cura versions because I felt they broke a couple of things, got to admit. They add new features fairly often, though. It'll eventually...

    You're doing fine with Sketchup, I wouldn't worry about it. That program has come a long way. FYI though, you can actually do "hybrid" things with models that are already meshes - for example I have a project with a ripped in-game ship mesh from Elite: Dangerous, rejigging it to be printable...

    TBH even I can only just see one of those changes and I'm a huge fan of this plane. The parson's nose certainly does look better. Those curved surfaces are real fun aren't they, but it's great to see someone making this kind of effort. Nobody has ever tackled the subject to this level of...

    These parts print really well! :thumbsup This is the first sizeable part I've ever been able to get done in ABS - had endless problems with warping and adhesion and hot end jamming, so I've gone for PLA for everything - obviously no good for the mounting parts for this project, so this was some...

    Deagostini Falcon. Anyone seen this?

    NP dude! For my part I came off as more whiny than I meant to. I was dithering over this whole thing and took the plunge really late at night after struggling with 3D stuff for hours. Didn't even remember I'd done it the next day TBH, haha. Thanks for that. That actually answers my...

    1/700 & 1/350 scale BH Cygnus builds

    Re: 1/700 & 1/350 scale BH Cygnus builds The top antennas don't have the "spike" details. So they're OK. Unless they're not. Which means a WSF-printable version of the bottom antennas will look...a bit ridiculous alongside the top ones, since I'll have to double the thickness of the...
