When I started printing vehicles I often was frustrated about the deficient print quality and the awful cleaning work.
So I decided to divide the object into several parts.
The focus is on print quality and avoiding support structures.
After printing, the parts have to be glued together.
Meanwhile I printed and built some models in this way.
I publish the print files for all users who like to have quick and good prints results.
I will start publishing the files under the title "Easy print & glue"
Finally, let my thank the original designers of the models. They are important for our community. I only cut their models into several pieces ... nothing else.
This time I worked on the Panzer V Panther Ausf.G.
David Drysdale offers a more detailed resin printer version.
I took this object, cutted it into several pieces and printed it with my FDM printer at a scale of 1/72.
The details, especially the tracks, turned out great.
The 3 parts of the hull, front, middle and rear section were printed without support.
The slewing ring and the hatches of the turret were also printed without support.
The tracks and the turret were printed with support.
