Description

This thing DOES NOT PRINT WELL.

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Print this ship out to show your loyalty.

That's why I put this in the description "This thing DOES NOT PRINT WELL." However it did print on my printer but was missing the engines at the back. I'm use ReplicatorG skeinforge to do the slicing. There are other better models than this on Thingiverse that may work out better for you.
The STL's are totally messed up, 90% of the triangles are normal inverted, the printer just goes crazy and explodes when trying to print this... T_T
Seems do able when you have two nozzles with a ABS and PLA so you can melt the PLA away afterwards

Either print out the full ship with tons of support of print the two halves without support and glue them together.

I'm in the process of printing this thing right now so I have no idea how well it will come out.

I just finished printing the bottom half and it has some holes in it. I'm not exactly sure how to fix it. Also the little motors on the back don't print at all.

I printed the parts you're missing, MacGyver. Printer ran for an hour printing mostly supports, but embedded in the mesh were some engine bits, the bottom sensor ball, and one of the top plates.
I wish I knew how to model better or actually fix all the problems with this model.
very nice... but... not worried about lucasfilm?
Not with how poorly this model actually prints out... :-P
Nope because I didn't even know that one existed before I posted this one. It is possible that one might print out better than my version. Let me know if you print that one out.
There's a lot of non-manifold geometry in there. Especially the top/bottom stls.
It still printed but I have no idea how to fix it. I ran it through netfabb on my desktop but that doesn't seem to help.
