This is a derived version of Gian Pablo Villamil's Rocket Ornament (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:37750)

This has been hollowed out, with some decoration added to spice it up a bit. Put a CR2032 battery and a red LED inside for a nice glowy ornament!


If you're printing at home:

Print in 2 pieces (top and bottom) and glue together.

If you're sending it off to be printed in plastic:

Use the whole model. If you adjust the scale in the .scad to around 0.9 you can get the cost down to less than $20.

If you're sending it off to be printed in ceramic:

Use the whole model. You will have to modify the .scad a bit. Increase the hull thickness (lower the scale in the inner_hull() function), then re-export. The spiral holes might have to be adjusted too so they don't get clogged when the model is glazed.

Button Battery Holder for LED

Great rocket, btw. It is very cool!

Um.. A cr2032 doesn't fit in this rocket, at least, the one I printed. I am going to make it larger. Are others having this issue?

Why do you suggest printing two halves and glueing?

Brilliant, I love it!
