We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is a TinTin-Cartoon-Style Rocket for 3D printing. It was inspired by the thing http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4509 by twotimes. It is not a derivate since it was completely rebuilt/drawn from scratch (nevertheless was it inspired by the version published by twotimes which is a really nice and large model).
My aim was to make it really easy to assemble and print. It consists of 12 printed parts only and just one threaded rod and two nuts are necessary to assemble.
Biggest part (max. spred x/y/z): 67mm/75mm/55mm
Threaded rod dimensions: M3 x 125mm
Nuts: 1x M3 Nylock / 1x M3 standard nut
Scale all parts by factor 1.272727 --> 1.3 (tested, works fine!) to get a M4 Version - will be 208mm high and use a M4 rod of 160mm and two M4 nuts. Should still be printable on a makerbot (largest spread of foot-part will be 97.5mm). You will perhaps like to redrill the holes for the m4 rod with a 4.2mm drill (or lightly rework with a round file) for easy assembly...
Check the "I made one" section for comparison picture of the two sizes...
Download all numbered parts (001 - 012). Assembly is not necessary for printing - this one is optional, just to illustrate how it looks when completed.
â€¢Should not need any support structure, so print without.
â€¢Use a fine nozzle if available (I printed with a 0.35mm nozzle, layer height 0.25mm, 2 shells)
â€¢Clean all the ooze off your parts (if any...)
â€¢It may be necessary to re-drill the holes for the rod... or to use a file or a swiss pocket knife ;)
DONE! Enjoy your brand new, supercool baby-rocket!
