Falcon 9 3D Printable model.
I was inspired to create this rocket model after watching the test launch of
Space X's Falcon Heavy.
As usual, I designed it to be 3d printable without external supports and as
easy as possible to assemble.
All the pieces slot together with a medium to tight fit, so some clean up may
be required on some pieces. No glue is required.
All pieces fit into each other, so I made mine shorter than the Falcon heavy.
So yes... Elon's is bigger than mine. ;)
I also supplied a PVC adapter so PVC pipe can be used to reduce print times.
The total height would be close to a metre high if the correct number of
sections is used on this model.
The landing legs snap open with the use of "pistons" and closes by clipping
onto the body. So it can be displayed with the landing legs up or down.
I show the release button on the pistons facing up in my video, but for
better stability, the piston must be turned so that the release is on the
- Main Centre rocket
- Stage 2 rocket
- Payload with TESS Satelite
- Scale workers with fire hose
- PVC Adapter

I hope you like this model.
I designed this model to be 3D printable without external supports so it can
be printed on any 3D printer.
The leg pistons and some other parts will require a brim to avoid warping.
