hello, the ship is 195 mm long .. parts divided into 3 sets ..200x200mm
mounted engine and rc equipment to let each of you:) I used spectrum receiver, 1S 350mAh lipo one servo on the second turn and servo controller adapted as

ahoj, loď je dlouhá 195mm .. díly rozdeleny na 3 díly po 200x200mm
ulozeni motoru a rc výbavy nechám na každém z vás:)já použil přijímač spectrum ,1S lipo 350mah jedno servo na zatáčení a druhe servo upravene jako regulátor

Hi, thank you for this wonderful model. It would need MUCH LESS support material, if you would change the orientation of the hull like I did on the attached picture. Since the bottom is flat, it makes no difference for the model at all. Also, the hull can be printed in one piece instead of two halves (and still it's small enough to fit on a Prusa i3). Think about it :-)

Hello friend, thank you for the message ... I split the torso to two halves because the infill was inside the model and the outside (side) sides were the same surface .. Several reports below are already the STL hull in one piece when I pressed the fuselage in the bottom and bottom I had problems with the back (with its final appearance) .. that's why I resorted to splitting :) I hope you have the model managed to print without any problems and that you publish the photos .. Thank you many times for your favor ..

Hello Macaiq, I have some other prints running - but as soon as I have a slot free, I'll try an upright print. I don't see why this should not work well (please find attached the screenshot of my slicer). Maybe you also add (optional) an upright hull, so the user can choose if he wants to print it split or in one piece. Thank you!

yes i understand .. my problem was in removing the support and then the appearance of the prone surfaces .. so I dropped from this procedure .. understand that someone has a fine print .. or another slicer that can handle it .. on my second printer I use "cura" and support is no longer such a problem .. I add up and up files

If you use Simplify 3D, then try these support settings (on the "Support" tab, section "Separation from part"):

Horizontal Offset from Part: 0,30mm
Upper vertical seperation layers: 1
Lower vertical seperation layers: 1

These are my settings - and using these, the support almost falls off when being touched. No force needed, works like a charm.

Yes, I understand. I do not like the porch which is formed on the support ... Maybe it will sound complacent :) but I'm not a beginner. i use a pretty similar setting as you wrote :) slicer i use on one Slic3r printer and on the other printer (home scraps) i have cura .. cura i feel much better to support ... but on this printer i did not model this printer:) hezký den ...

Thank you, , sent you a small tip. Printed perfect in upright position. Keep up the great work!

Thank you many times I really appreciate your support. I look forward to seeing your model on the water :) and once again thank you

it looks cool but there are to many files

hello, thank you for your comment .. the ship is a priority for controlling the RC kit .. and the parts are drawn so that the printing is as simple as possible (to print without support and the like) .. I can add only one stl (the whole ship)

I have problems to to fit all parts together, something is wrong with the files or with the sketch.

Hello, do you think it will be after printing? (sorry google compiler).

Hi, that is a wonderful model, I have been trying to print it but I am having some problems with the hull. Mostly warping that makes the two parts imposible to fit together. Could you tell me the settings you are using on your printing?

Thanks, I printed this model from the enclosed STL where both halves are at once and they are a contact surface on the mat .. it is precisely because these two surfaces are perfectly straight .. I attach the STL hull in one piece

Thank you so much ! I will try again with this file, did you used suport?

Yes the support is necessarily .. the rear cast of the hull could not be printed without the support

Need to get boat enthusiasts in one place so i made a new group called "Maritime". Feel free to join!

Hello! Awesome work! I will starting printing it, can you please tell me what kind of motors I will need and how this it will become waterproof?
Thank you!

I used a servo motor from 9g .. but you can use anything .. but I recommend having everything as light as possible .. I have chosen motor + shaft it is more demanding to mount..I do not see the problem in using a 7mm (drone or micro heli) engine. .. and use it directly on the ship bolt (every 7mm motor is "waterproof") .. so you only need to increase the hole on the shaft and insert into it the motor directly :) ESC is servo modified by 2K2 resistors (the instructions are on YT or Write me :))

Thank you for your reply. It's possible to send me a photo from the inside of your ship? And maybe a link of this motor?
Thank you for your time! And for sharing this!!

I added to the end of the gallery 3 pictures .. a simple and complex version of the drive .. the link is only illustrative .. i am using these motors from my damaged serv or micro drones and helicopters


Hi! (its me again...) I have one more question, how did you make the Rudder waterproof? Again with a smaller shaft?

Hi:) Yes it's the shaft in the case ..>> shaft in the case- down ring, up ring and that's all .. in such a small model you do not have to be so tight .. displacement is minimal ..
