Printer pause alert...

Before you begin 3D printing off your 5-footer Millennium Falcon vent rings, hold on a minute... the height looks like it may be off by 2mm according to another member with better photogrammetry skills. (I already sent mine to Shapeways to print, so I'll post a picture of them in comparison to the new dimensions coming in.)

More anon.

Meerkat67, are you in on this run?

If not it's kind or wearing thin.

What is the sense in this targeted attack and bashing Studiokitbash over this?

What do you have to gain by trying to rubish his name?

Everyone who has contributed can, and should be able to chime in.

Are you trying to solve the problem, or fuel another?

Aside from the trip to Mexico, I can sympathise with most of these problems myself. And so can probably a good majority of other members that have contributed to this forum, especially given where the world is at the moment.

You have failed to list the following from what I can see:

- He has provided countless folk here with castings of expensive kit parts over the years. Some of these were freely gifted to builders (evidence in various member build threads).

- Freely offered assistance with identifying donor parts and information to help others with their build.

- Come through with a very difficult run for parts for plastic hemispheres for the 5 foot falcon, not attempted by anyone else here, and funded much of the R&D himself.

- And surely more good deeds which have gone unnoticed or I am not aware of.

Timing aside, he has been honest about his failings with regard from this run and he hasn't walked away like many here probably have in the past. It would have been easy to do if he was that type of person.

Cantina_Dude is going to try and get this up and going.
Few realise how much work is involved in what he has proposed.
Like Cantina_Dude, I have experience with scanning and working in CAD and it is a massive, massive, massive task to try to accomplish this.

If this project comes off it could be one of the most important things to happen to Studio Scale, given the age and rarity of these kits. Most here realise this.


Seriously, come on.
Seriously yeah come on, what you have failed to recognize is this dude dissappeared like the flash for a long time,,,, and only reappeared like a fly on cow dung when i posted what i did... so think about that...

This is my result printing the left entex wenkel part on my new Elegoo Saturn. I just started 3d printing a few weeks ago! This is done at 75 percent scale of the original file. Does this size look right? It's larger than I might have thought but who knows?

I printed the full size one on my mars after cutting the part roughly in half along one of the natural "lines" in the part. At 75% that look approximately right based on my prints :).

This "looks" really good. Original size is 208mm in length, if you want to compare.
