Have a simple bathtub boat for fun.

In the file the ship is 10cm (3.93in) long. But my prints are only 8,5cm (3.34in) long.
So I printed the ship about 13 percent smaller.

well every thing is clear but what the infill did you use or recommended i hope to print at 12% which gives me 35 grams of filament in Cura.

15% filling has never been a problem with me.

How fast have any of you with a Prusa MK2 / MK2S printed this? I tried a couple 1.5X size prints at 60mm/sec and detail pieces broke off for me. Has anyone been successful at this speed?

I printed the boat with an mk2s at 80% and 100% at 60mm/sec and everything stayed intact.

Awesome model. Great work.
I like this so much better than Benchy boat.
This one actually floats right side up.

You realize that the point of the Benchy is to "benchmark" the printer, and not necessarily have a functional toy boat, right?

yes I realize that. But, I see no reason why when printing a test it couldn't also be a functional toy.
The original Benchy is a fine model for testing.

You're damn right! I was disappointed when Benchy turned out to be not sea-worthy.

Benchy floats upside-down, does this float right-side-up ?


my ships are all actually floating up. Unfortunately, however, monster waves don't survive these.

Did you print this with or without supports?

The model requires no support

Thanks for the kind words.
The material is once blue - Fillamentum PLA and orange - Janbex PLA

the print quality tho, doesnt even look like FDM.

your printer, printed it like a boss
