This is a print that I wanted to make to test the resolution of my printer, and it is a very fun and tiny print. The masts can rotate and the sails can go up and down. This is a fairly difficult print because the pieces are so small. It could be given to someone as a gift, or just displayed on your desk to show off your printing skills!
Assembly: To attach the Sails to the Mast pieces, first slide the Connector piece onto the Mast. Then place the first set of holes on the double hole side on the top of the Mast. Pull the Sail around to the other side of the Mast attaching the next set of holes in the same spot. Then wrap the Sail down around the Connector and place the last set of holes over the pegs on the Connector. If you are having trouble to wrap the Sail around the top of the Mast, you can clip the first set of holes off of the double hole side, and the model should still work (That's what I had to do the first time.)
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to leave a note for me! Thank you and enjoy! :)
Ultimaker PLA and TPU 95A
I used two different materials on this model. All of the Ship and Mast pieces were printed in PLA. Both of the Sails were printed using TPU 95A. I'm not sure if the sails can be printed in PLA and be able to curve around the Mast pieces, but if you try it and it works let me know. For the Sails, some of the holes closed up while printing. To fix this, I just took a very small screwdriver and poked through the Sail. Just be careful not to accidentally stab yourself. Good luck!
