Saturn V Rocket

Designed to be just about as big as my UM can print. Haven't run it yet, since it will probably take 10+ hours to print.
I made this from the .3ds model at nasa.gov/multimedia/3d_resources/models.html, and merely sliced it for printing and closed some holes. Cura finds several intersection errors, probably from the nozzles that intersect the base. Still slices fine, though, as far as I can see. If someone has Sketchup Pro and can run the routine that only saves external faces, I'd be much oblidged.

I separated the escape tower from the main build. This allows for up-scaling of 40%. Now 1/173 scale.
These are all taken with a low quality cell phone camera, but they should work fine. I had an issue with things sticking TOO well, and broke two of them getting them off so i'll have to glue them later too.
Along with that I had my usual issue with tiny things staying liquid too long and getting fudged by the print head. Still trying to tackle that one well enough, i manually turned the temp down when it got to the peak.
