How about just putting the link to the models and let us find them

I can hardly wait to see what you do with this! I'm 3/4 through the print of the Discovery :)

lisagen's EVA pod has a generous license -- perhaps you could adapt that.

Thanks: I saw that one but I found 2 more detailed ones on another site.

If you cite the source as http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:950664, you can simply use that item's "Share and share alike" license. Problem solved. Please post the other parts ASAP.

Discovery from 2001 (XD-1)

Will this interior fit the above linked model? Same scale or no?

No, the interior and sphere section are scaled much larger. The whole ship at my scale would be the size of a room. I don't think the interior would print well at the scale of the original Discovery model. But all 3D models are scalable to any size you like.

That Thing is only the exterior hull, not the interior.


I'm trying to decide if I want to do a bay interior on the one I'm building. I may just leave it with the doors closed. I plan to do an interior for the cockpit though. I've already been searching for interior images I can print onto clear media to use as display panels.

How soon before you can post the flight deck portion?

Read my summary. I have to find out what the rights to the files are.
