This is a detailed (though not immensely accurate) model of the Imperial Tie Advanced X1 - Darth Vader's Tie Fighter

It is fully printable, without any nasty overhangs, bridges, etc.

Also, there are alignment pegs for assembling the two halves.

The model shown was printed on a Fablicator

I stumbled upon Chanson's detailed Solidworks model over on grabcad, and did some very heavy modification to make it printable, while maintaining as much detail as possible. Original can be found here: http://grabcad.com/library/darth-vaders-tie-fighter


Print the two halves. PLA is preferred due to the size of the rear fuselage, but ABS/HIPS will work with a full height skirt to keep things from warping too much (you can see the rear panels have some waviness to them :/ )

I used .2mm layer height for good details.

Superglue the two halves together.

Rule galaxy with iron fist, and don't forget to protect your exhaust ports.

hi could you possibly make the front of the tie fighter into a small file and send it to me because my program i use can only take up to 25 mb

Printing at 60% .2mm layer, I had to rotate the model -30° Z so the wings had a good build. Otherwise looks great, thanks!

so there are holes for alignment pins but there arent any in the files. Do you just print out generic ones?

I think i used a piece of 3mm filament.

These days i just line up the perimeters and don't bother with pins if its getting glued anyway.

This model is great keep up the good work

Do you think the stand of this thing will fit with this beautiful Advanced X1?

Star Wars TIE Interceptor - sliced to print without support, and with stand

I think yes I scaled up to 145% to fit with my 118% scale Interceptor

What has everyone been Slicing this with? I get a strange outcome on this model with Slic3r (One giant Tie-shaped block) and I never seem to get good prints out of Skeinforge

can you use superglue with PLA? I though that you can't.

you can use Weldbond. pla love that glue but it is very long to cure. around 24 hours

You can, but it doesn't bond as well as with ABS and you have to clamp the two parts together for longer.
