"What do you want?"
A model of the infamous Shadow Battlecrab spaceship from Babylon 5.

You will hear a scream in your mind as you get one of these finished.


Print with 25% infill and loads of support and retraction enabled.
Model is a pain to print, and can be used as a retraction benchmark.

Files included are a full ship and the top and bottom hull shapes so as to improve print quality.
Also included is a full ship with the quantum gap between top and bottom hulls connected so as to ease larger print jobs.

If organic skin material is not available then use ABS/PLA preferably black.
Telepath not included

The quantum gap... I assumed that any problems would be solved by stringing or by the support (internal).
I will generate a model with posts through the gap just on the safe side.

In the whole version, the upper and lower part are separated in the STL by a tiny strip of air. When printing the first time I was fortunate enough that due to stringing the whole thing stayed together, but I guess when printing a bigger version I might get a problem here... Could you merge those two parts into one somehow?

But I think you could get better results by printing the top and bottom huls separatelly and then connecting them with a small dab of transparent glue.
