Floating on the wind high above the world, sits the Cloud Factory sits. Whirling and whooshing as it breaths in the slivers of once mighty cumuli, these proud giants are returned to their purest elements.
In the belly of the factory, clouds are born. At first, just a mist. A vapor as it moves across the station.
It quickly becomes something more.

Can you share rocket, please? Given link not working. Thanks!

You forgot to include the Red rocket

The starship is here -- http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:50178 -- it just needs to be scaled down to sit on it's platform

Very nice! Any chance of including a stand in the set? I've tried to make my own from a coat hanger but it keeps falling over.

Certainly, I'll add a stand very soon!

Great design. Love the contrast of the jagged rocks to the smooth clouds (also makes me think of the windmill from the gorillaz video)

Did you print those clouds with supports? Those are the roundest bottoms I've ever seen on supported meshes.

Yes I did! I'm very happy with how they turned out

how did you make the models?
what software did you use

Somebody print a big one and hook it up to a fog machine that routes to the smokestack.

very cool...

would be nice to see if you could break apart clouds so it was easier to print without supports.

keep up your amazing work.
