Summary

Inspired by the starship enterprise, posted as thing No. 8100 (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8100), I converted a google 3d galery model of a romulan warbird (http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=c5b88c16e0091eed6208ceb8c2299bcc&prevstart=0) to a printable stl file.

Because of several overhangs, I had to cut the ship into pieces to get a printable version.
Now the ship consists of 4 parts: The left side, the right side and the 2 panels.
The size is about 100 mm x 70 mm x 2.5 mm.

The print was very good on my mendel with a layer thickness of 0.2 mm in glowing-in-the-dark PLA.
After cleaning (which is not very much work, if you set your retraction distance long enough) I glued it together.

The panels should klick into the wings - otherwise they also can be glued.

Live long and prosper!

Can you upload the whole thing as a single model? I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

When I was a kid I could swear I got a glow in the dark warbird in a box of cereal. This is a must print for me.

can you made a version without the decals on the "wings" these are causing blobs on my print ? They are to small to print and somehow to large that the slicer ignores them.

It's not ABS, it's PLA - less warp, much easier to print with.
