Manifold LowPoly Firefly Serenety by cymon Sep 14, 2012

Description

Mal: Fay-yoo? Ah... ah... OK, she won't be winning any beauty contests anytime soon, but she is solid. Ship like this, be with you till the day you die.
Zoe: Because it's a death trap.

Tried using 77777773's low poly firefly for a project and found it riddled with geometry errors. Spent all day fixing them so here's the manifold low-res version.

Ten-times size of the high-poly version. I run a Rapman 3.1, with a max build area of about 8 inches cubed. I had to cut it into about twenty segments. The bridge alone took a solid week of printing.

Some of it is off center...the dome isn't on the same axis as the tail and nose :(

Well, I did say it was Fay-yoo.

For my purposes I had to thicken the wings right to the base. Planning on making a firefly ring using the elegant ring base.

Printed it. Serenity in Glow-in-the-Dark PLA, cool!

That being said, the engines broke off when removing support, which was a bit of a bummer - the 'wings' are very thin. Superglued 'em back on. But you may want to make the 'wings' thicker to hold better.

Printing double-size now!
