Summary

Loved the original by Gattaca and have printed it several times scaled to different sizes as a test piece for our new printers. Pictures above is a print from the MendelMax 3 printer and the Minimax printer by Makers Tool Works

The following are the Mods to the original.
Added some material so the Engine could print properly in the center without center filled support. Increased the diameter of the leg struts. Rotated the Pods so the top rack holding tabs would print easier. Truss I added built in holding tabs in the corners as well as a base for the built in support at one end. I also cut this part in half so people with smaller printers should be able to print this model.
I also scaled the truss so it fits inside the holding tabs a bit better.

  • I have found one slicer that has issues with some of the pieces. Please use netfab cloud to auto repair the STL's.

Instructions

All parts are sized to fit even small print beds.

Parts that require no support:

legs thicker
space_1999_eagle_body
space_1999_eagle_cockpit
Truss with print pads
Landing gear

Parts requiring support:

pod left, auto support
pod right, auto support
engine, If your slicer has manual support add some right under the small lower round sections. Try to avoid auto support it will add support to the center which can be difficult to remove. It is possible to print this piece without support but it is not easy.

I made one at 200 percent just need to paint it .

I made one of these at 50% scale in all black and it looked mean ..... until I painted it.... so sorry no picture uploaded

Parts fitted together really well.

Thanks MK

Will be doing this again in other colours sometime in future.

bravo pour votre travail et un très grand MERCI

Does the cargo pod detach and reattach?

is the pod slightly shorter than it should be? I expected the front and back sections to glue to it, and then attach the gridwork above, but either the gridwork is too long or the pod is too short.

No, the pod is supposed to be that way. In the series, the pods came off and had a distinct spacing. Granted that made no sense in the shots on the inside, but I presume that the pod had some sort of extension that connected to the forward and rear modules. In the plastic models of this ship that I have built it is exactly the same way.

I guess you're right, I forgot about that. It just SEEMS like it should mate at each end. I may take a small thin strip to glue along the bottom at each end where it's not readily visible to make the mating more solid.

Comments deleted.

made 1 very easy to assemble glue it together using super glue great design and thanks for sharing

Definitely brings back memories and nice to see quite a few people making use of it.

Very nice Micro, I'm quite excited to see that this project of mine is getting around. Especially excited that you are using it to test your printers. Keep up the good work.

I remember trying to build this out of Lego, sticks and cello tape as a kid. Thank God for 3D technology!!

As a 7 yo pilot of my own lego version, I can say that this ship had a strange tendency to crash and burn frequently.
