We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
A lot of the time in movies you'll see space ships like X-wings flying around like planes, but in space there's no atmosphere, no lift or drag, nothing to slow them down so unless they've got thrusts placed all over the ship to provide lateral thrust they couldn't possibly fly like this (and if they did it would be really inefficient and wasteful). It would be much more likely that in a space battle you'd have small cubes or spheres with thrusters all over and rotating guns allowing them to move quickly in any direction.
I made two small models one fighter (tiny one) and one heavy bomber (large one with big rotating gun).
It\'s an stl so just go a head and 3d print this thing, but due to the overhang make sure not to print it with a cupcake or reprap without supports.
I'd suggest only printing the fighter with a cupcake or reprap using a powder based printer would work best for the bomber.

So what's this mean?
We're sure c-45 would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
