This is the spaceship 'Starbug' from the British TV comedy series 'Red Dwarf'.


Print the main body, use full support.
Print two front legs and two back legs, use full support.
Glue legs to main body. I used a drop of acetone inside the sockets. Make sure the legs are perpendicular to the body, and that the feet are parallel to the ground. I glued them and eye-balled it, then adjusted them while the acetone was still tacky.
Print two fins. Glue them as shown in the pictures.
Print the rocket part and glue to the back of the body.
That's it.

UPDATE 3/9/2012 - As requested I have created a single model file. I have not been able to test it, so please post your results if you print it. Thanks.

Just a suggestion; might want to mention that the legs are scaled much larger than necessary compared to the body. I spent a few minutes wondering what I did wrong until I realised that they're just too big.

Aside from that, great print. Thanks for the files.

I'm actually annoyed and jealous at the same time, i was just about to start working on this! :(
Great work tho, will definitely be printing this!

Nice! Could you upload a version with all the parts in one model? I'd like to try printing it with dissolvable support.

Hmm...I used Cubify to build it, and it doesn't support adding external files to the existing model. Is there a tool that can do that using .stl files?

Okay tbuser, I have created a new model that is just one piece. Let me know how it prints with dissolvable support.
