An OpenSCAD model of one of the underwater vehicles from the Octonauts/Meomi cartoons.


Requires the MCAD library.

Change the parameters to make various kinds of Gup-like shapes. The optional parameter tow_line changes the rear of the gup to have a tow line looking thing, it's not perfect, but similar to what the Gup-C would have. The default parameters are suitable for printing, but the model is a bit fragile in that the parameter space that creates feasible models is small.

front_radius: controls the front globe where the cockpit sits.
back_radius: controls the back globe where the propeller shaft attaches.
port_hole_radius: sizes the port holes along the side.
various shaft parameters: adjust if you already have a propeller, or for the included three-arm parametric propeller.

The body prints OK on a MakerBot Replicator but, the back is a bit too steep and the surface rips up some. Some of the "doodads" like the porthole outer rings and the "lamp" have trouble occasionally.

Just wanna say a big "Thanks!" for making these. They're not perfect but I guess that's the beauty of being 3, he doesn't notice those things. Lol My son's only complaint when I gave it to him was "The Gup A's not black daddy, it's blue!" I guess I'll be ordering some teal filament...

Sure- I've uploaded the .skp. I highly recommend Jim Foltz's STL importer for SketchUp... very handy for quick modifications like the one you mention.

make more please, our younger son loves it

I've added the .stl for a Gup C-like vehicle... it has a tow line. also, I added a tear-away support layer since the print yield for this object was about 50% due to the high center of mass.

At ease, until the next adventure!
