Just loved the shape of this rocket. It turned out to be a great way to tune the speed and temperature of your printer to a batch of filament.

Printed in vase mode watch the print progress if you get little blobs forming on the inside of the model then you most lightly have the temperature too high or are over extruding or going too slow. If you have gaps and the model does not hold together then too cool too fast or under extruding.

Now go build you Inter ballistic strike force


Printed with PLA at .3 in vase mode. If your slicer does not do this then I have included a Makerbot x3g file if you are using a Makerbot.

worked great! it looks good as well as being a good test for your printer.

This is fun to experiment with, vase mode, infills, perimeters, etc. But now the little kids got it, how can I make the node less pointy?

I never thought of it being used as a toy, it;s original purpose was to tune your printer speed and temp.
While I could draw up a model with a rounder nose cone it would not print well in vase mode. You would have to print it solid with say 20% infill. I am happy to do that if you would use it.Let me know (may take me a couple of weeks).

I printed with 0% infill and 3 outer shells as mu son wanted it as a toy. It came out great. Thanks!

Thank you for the input, I hope that he has fun with it. Just a word of caution, this was never designed to be a toy, it has a very pointed top I would strongly recommend you file this round.

I did one better and used simply3d to stop printing so the top surface is flat. I have also printed a huge one (225mm high) doing the same. They are great and he played the whole evening with them. Great design!

Great Thank you would hate to see a child hurt. Very elegant solution.

I made this with T-Glass, Extruder 235c - Bed 65c - 25% infil with honeycomb.

Great model. Great test for printer.

I have never printed it in solid form, good to hear that it went well for you.

This is the first thing I have printed from Thingiverse. It printed well, except that it is very stubby. Not at all like the nice slender V2 look that I see here. I'm new to 3D printing. Did I do something wrong?

I doubt it. This was inspired by the V2 shape this is not a scale model of the V2. I was also trying to keep the print time to about 45 minutes, that's why it is shorter.

Very similar to http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:458903 but I like the tail section even better on yours!

Thank you.
I know that model and I had problems printing it as there was a fault in the drawing and that stopped vase mode working with S3D. I acknowledge mechg's rocket was the inspiration in making my model.

I am in Australia so I am not sure if this will help you but
Green https://www.bilby3d.com.au/DispProd.asp?ProdID=PLA175Green1
Red was purchased from a chinese ebay seller it is a translucent Red a few of them carry it I can not find it in my purchase history. I have bought from SainSmart PLA and iLuck both are good

Hope this helps

I like the dark metallic green and also the red. Are those Dremel Filaments?
