Summary

Freelancers are used as long haul merchant ships by major corporations, but they are just as frequently repurposed as dedicated exploration vessels by independent captains who want to operate on the fringes of the galaxy.
Roberts Space Industries

Instructions

All you have to do is download the model and slice it. I already made sure it's watertight and all faces are flipped the correct way. All the models I upload are a 1:200 (cm) scale, according to the Star Citizen Ship Specs page. If you want, you can scale the models, but there's no need to, unless you want a bigger/smaller version of the ship.

I sized mine up by 250% and sliced it into 3 pieces. I ran into problem with Slic3r whenever I would try and cut it, crashed every time I tried to cut. Finally got it to work and printed my front section and found geometry errors. Cockpit area is completely hollow inside and parts of the exterior walls are missing. I am guessing this is because of something with the geometry, but I'm not sure.

Took 26 hrs and isn't usable :(

I cut this into 6 pieces to give flat surfaces to print to and minimize supports (I hate cutting it off). I immediately ran into geometry issues while slicing. There are many open faces in the model. You can see them easily when you import the model. I know this is a game model and is meant to be looked at not printed. I appreciate the work that you've done to get it to this point. Even with cutting and correcting where I could the files are still not printable. The mesh is not solid in too many areas. I own the Freelancer in game...I'm really looking forward to getting this ship sitting on my desk...

Besides the thin features, the front landing strut is not fully connected.

I think the only good way to print this model might be to slice it in half, though it would still need support no matter how it is sliced. Trying to puzzle it out in Meshmixer right now.

Also thing that pulling in the landing gear would help a lot.

everything printed fine for me minus the front... big gap ran it through net fab no dice 20 hours and 20m of filament wasted

this mesh is nearly unprintable but not mainly because of thin features, because of severy internal errors. holow spaces and such.
many triangles are double.. the repairing probably did a horrible job in conserving the actual details.

the model have many problem like landing pad who lost some part and little crank everywhere...

I didn't notice that. I'll work on fixing it, thanks for letting me know it has those problems.

If someone prints this model, please send me pictures of it so I can use them in the post. Thanks!

I have this ship in SC, i would love to be able to print it! From the looks of the model though, i bet it would be a very difficult one to print.

Maybe print it upside down with support material for the wings

Sucks that I dont have a 3D Printer cause I want it!
