wow...Im blind. Anyway, thanks again, I

All the models are available in parasolid .x_t format. Download the appropriate file (bergman-tanks-pack1-x_t.zip for this pack). http://www.thingiverse.com/download:427809

By the way, any possibility of seeing this in another format easier to edit than stl? (for adding support material manually)

Hey, Really good designs but I'm having a lot of trouble printing them from my 3D Systems cube, any advice?

What kind of trouble?

I'm extremely impressed with your simple but detailed design. By the way, do you have Panther hull model with side skirt attached? Hull without skirt feels empty. I'll look forward to your reply.

I'll try to remember to include skirted Panthers & Jagdpanthers with Pack 3-part 3.

I'm trying to print this on a FF Creator Pro, but keep getting a ZeroDivisionError: complex division problem, do you happen to know how to get it to work? If not, I'll keep searching for a solution

Hi, I am really into tanks so first and foremost thank you for this, it is amazing! Secondly, I wanted to print it no my makerbot M2, is there any advice you can give? Last but not least, how do you get the files from here to the printer?

Is it possible to do this on key creator?

also need a T-54 Russian I think. found a Gcode of one and remixed it repaired but the tracks and wheels are separate and wont print right

I have now learnt to ignore the default UP placement, as it makes the removing of the support material so much easier!

I have made a few of these, and the detail is awesome!

I do print for 15mm (1.87x) however on the Up Mini I can not get the .15mm resolution and the barrels come out (in the words of Gail Simmons) fakey. I will proberbly pin brass tubes for the barrel, but is there a way to make the barrels that does not involve them looking like cam shafts or so encased in support material that I can not remove it?

Minor quibble in a awesome series of files. Now waiting for the Ratte! (No I am not) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landkreuzer_P._1000_Ratte

m_bergman - in reply to Voradams

The parts are designed with 0.2mm as a layer height, so should be fine for the Mini. All gun barrels should be printed horizontal on the UP, for strength and best finish. At 15mm scale, removing the supports should not be too great an issue, since I can manage it at 1:200. I use 0mm^2 and 80 degrees, and don't have too much trouble. Just nibble away at and pull out all the zig-zag support stuff first, then peel away the face mat. For prying out the underhanging bits, use an old xacto blade with the cutting edge and tip filed down to round. That'll give you a very strong poke-prod tool with a 0.5mm thick blade, but one that is too blunt to stab yourself with. Also suggest you try rotating the models 45 degrees in XY plane, because on the UP this gives much better side finish. No Rattes for you. It wouldn't even fit on the table... Now a Karl, on the other hand...

this guy is a master at micro vehicle models. hope we can keep him motivated for many future packs. BTW what scale are flames of war vehicles?

flames of war are 1:100 I believe.

THanks!!!very good job!

Hey m_bergman, any chance we could get the wheels/tracks separated from the chasis? it will minimize overhang support generation... for now I'm splitting the models in half and printing each chasis with the tracks facing up, works perfect.

Thank you for posting these and for the hard work you put into creating them, I really appreciate it.

They are stl files and excellent with it. Have printed of quite a few now and highly recommend them.

how do i get these files into .stl?

I had an issue trying to make multiple tanks at once under high quality. I think the pla cooled down too far while it worked on the other tanks. I think that this is from trying to get the printer to do too much at once though. Printing a single tank at a time worked GREAT!

Hi i have download , and if y give to replicator for g-code create , on the end from g-code edit , is over 10 lines on red , error for print .. i would not print if y have red lines .. just why you thing is to more error ? you have print under makerware or replicator ? I can not launch the print .. i see not why .. i can you write the message error on next echange .. thanks if you give me a answer , a soon .. and very nice parts ;) its beautifull !

This would be a cool model to print in chocolate using a food 3D printer.

I'm having a problem, the turrets print great, but they tend to be too big to fit in the body. Is it just my printer or are other people having this problem as well?

The turret spigots are drawn 0.2mm smaller in diameter than the turret hole. Usually this is enough, but if you're unlucky there'll be a few ridges or bumps in the hole or on the spigot. If it happens to me, I run a sharp xacto blade around the hole circumference, and if it still doesn't fit, spin a bit of wet-and-dry around the spigot. It doesn't usually take very much.

Does anyone have advice for making the turrets?

They were designed to be printed sitting flat, sitting on their spigot. This orientation will give you stronger, cleaner-looking gun barrels which are pretty simple to remove from the supports because they have a flat bottom face.

GREAT ! its absolutly fantastic

I am new to 3D printing, but have recently gained access to our machine at work. I am eagerly awaiting Pack 2!!! It should be almost exactly what I have been looking for. I intend to grow some and post the pics after they are done. I was curious, are the tank turrets separate to allow for rotation? Many Thanks.

yes, the tanks turrets are separate :)

Absolutely fantastic , I have been increasing them by 187% to use as 15mm nad have found PLA to be perfect on a replicator 2 . If I could be impolite and make a request some more trucks would be very useful .

Have already modeled and printed a Studebaker (and a Studebaker Katyusha) for pack 2. Pack 2 will probably contain White scout car and US M9 halftrack too. But I do need an Opel Blitz sooner rather than later... so many vehicles to model, so few lunch breaks.

Ooh! Can you upload the Studebaker? I have a friend who would love to have a print of that.

Which orientation are they best printed in?

I always print these sitting on their tracks. Makes the guns as strong as possible, but means some fiddly support removal. (That's why all the gun barrels are drawn with a flat bottom.)

Other people seem to be printing them sitting up on end, which will mean very little support removal, but will make the gun barrels really, really fragile at 1:200. At 1:100, they would be ok.

I printed my first one with both parts vertical. It was 1:100 and barrel is rock solid. Very little support. Maybe I will try the tanks flat, and the guns vertical. Simplify 3d seems to make supports just fall off with zero effort, so interested to see what more it can do.

Wow, this brought a tear to my eye. Years ago when my children were about 12 my boys asked me what I wanted to do for fathers day, my choice was to spend the day building plastic models. One trip to the hobby store, $100 and an hour later we were doing just that. I built a early version tiger 1and the boys built german as well LOL. From this day on the dominating subject at the dinner table was tanks,armored cars, half tracks, transports and self propelled guns. The weight, the power, size guns, types of rounds etc. was all the rage as my wife shook her head.keep up the good work. hope you add the KV-1 and KV-2 to the line up. BTW it is strongly suggested that the T-34 was the best tank of WW2 having a reasonable main gun, sloped armor, diesel power and not to mention cheep as fuck when compared to the cost of a Tiger 1.

These are great, if you want to use them for flames of war (15mm) just print at 2x the size.

187% is better

These are very nice models and they print really well. Is there any chance of there being some Russian tanks like the IS series and some T34s? That would be great if there was. Thanks for the great models. They are spectacularly awesome.

Am drawing Russian tanks now for pack2. Currently have modeled and printed: IS-1 IS-2 early IS-2 late ISU-122 ISU-122S ISU-152 SU-85 SU-100 SU-76M early SU-76M late T-70 BA-64B T-34 85 late T-34 85 late with 'spider' wheels

I think I'll get a full 1944-45 Russian collection together and upload as pack 2 - hopefully early April.

Thanks. That would be great if they were up by early april. My friends and I play Flames of War and he really needs some IS-2s, so that would be great and work out well. I really appreciate it. Thanks again for all of the great tank models.

Tanks a lot. Many tanks.

I love how clear your instructions are. Thank you.

these models are great for showing people just how accurate printers can be, the level of detail in the models and in the print is amazing. Thank you for making a truly awesome set of military vehicles.

These are really nice. I scaled the Chevrolets up 2.3 times to use with 1/87th Minitanks/railroads. They still look good

Epic! Any possibility i can get my hands on the .prt-files? :)

Thank you, this is the best thing ever. I was a huge fan of the "micro machines" toys when I was a kid, and my mom would never let me have enough of them. Now I can have as many as I want! Thanks again.

This is fantastic, thanks for posting this!

so fucking nice. I look forward to seeing all tanks ready. keep up the good work :D

Sehr gut! (That's my faux German)

are the supposed to be printed with the rear down on the bed

Yes this needs to be featured, Fantastic Work! Thank you!

epic build; mic drop

Feature this.... great work
