Flash Gordon Ship redux
by cerberus333, published
This version is intended to be more universally scalable.
I have made the two halves have a flat
surface to glue them together.
This will allow the scale to be done without
fear of excessive sanding to glue. The only downside to this is that you will have to be more careful in how you glue it together
the tail has a "wheel" which is supposed to be on the bottom of the craft.
I am posting a picture of how it is intended to look once glued.
I have added the ship sliced into 5 large pieces as a user asked for it sliced so they could make a large print. Hopefully this was a reasonable division of the model. Not sure how it will print sliced that way.
Modeled in Truespace5
I did my test print in ABS
sliced at .15
I had a few holes on the points of the nose and tail
I used abs/acetone goop (viscosity similar to honey)
i dab the holes
let it sit a few seconds and wipe with a paper towel
repeating if the gaps are not filled
the gluing is easy enough but you have to take care to allign properly
this should be scalable and not be a issue for assembly.
use infill if you prefer, I like the 0% infill and follow up
with post fill-in because i print much faster, use lots less plastic
and the post work is minimal. I just keep a jar of acetone/ABS scrap in the colors
i use. rafts are not in short supply to make this mix
