Summary

This is a sliced solid giving two shells. The file should print well in the vertical position with the sliced surface on the print bed. This is a replacement file for the previous xwing model so this should print without errors. It is a medium detail replica of a Star Wars X wing (wings closed).

What platform was this designed on?

anyone who can tell me how many meters play-filament it will use

I printed this. It came out very well. Some z-banding on the weapons because they're so fine, but that's a printer limitation not the model.
If I were to print it again, I would edit the files and add in holes on the mated faces so that I could put in alignment pins. That way when you glue it, there's something for the glue to hold on to and the pieces stay well aligned. Also, since the mating faces are both on the print bed, set the printer to not overprint the first layer. By default my printer overprints the first layer at 120%. This will create a seam when you join the to sections. Set this to 100% to get a seamless fit.

I tried printing this on my Printrbot Metal. All printed well until it started printing the upper portion of the x-wing. Right when the nose and the windshield starts. After that all types of crazy stuff happened. Though the parts that did print well and look see great. I'll see if I find anything weird in the model.

Additionally I did find the blasters to be quit fragile as well. They seemed to break off without any effort whats so ever.

Has anyone tried this on an FDM maachine? I have a lulzbot mini and would love to try this...this model looks great!

I use a powder printer that can deal with this kind of file but I will make changes so that it's easier to print on FDM machines. I also see that there are some internal issues to sort out. I will re-post two versions soon, one with foils open.

This model is cool but model here on Thingiverse with the working wings is prob worth the extra time to print and assemble. Some ABS and ABS glue (acetone mixed with ABS) and some work its well worth it.

could be printed? with material support?
