Please look at my new remix.
Now you can print the Falcon without any extra support.

I hope you do. Like Adam Savage, I, too, would love a very accurate one!

yes.. if you look at the tail and the beak you'll see that they aren't supported by the layers under them and they would droop if you tried to print without support. That said, give it a go and see what you think.

Are the supports Necessary ?

How does this differ from your old model, #26372 (no longer present) ?

Adam Savage might dig this. He has a great story about making his own Maltese Falcon: http://youtu.be/KRAWYjFmFII?t=...

Actually it was seeing his Ted talk and a request for something like this that made me start doodling in zbrush on this. A couple hours later I was done with this version.

Only later did the obsession kick in and hours and hours of searching the internet later, after I promised my self I would not catch the fever, did I realize that I was going to have to try and do the perfect version eventually. Luckily its not killing me to get it done just yet, so maybe time will heal my obsession.

Because 3d printing is the realization of "the dreams that stuff is made of".

Nice model! How did you make it?

colinfizgig on Feb 3, 2013 said:

I modeled it in zbrush by eyeballing some photos from the internet. Ones from the movie and ones from props that have been made since. It's not 100 percent accurate. I took some liberties, but I have more source now and when I get the chance I may go back and try for something spot on.
