Ships – Battlecruiser

Going through the various Kickstarter projects we’ve backed recently, picking some models from each
to print and test out. From the SciFi Structures Kickstarter, the battlecruiser_repaired.stl.

This is the first of the Project Mobius series that I’ve printed, and I learned a few things in the process. Transparent materials don’t work well for these small detail ships – the look of the edges is lost in the shadows of the infill that show through the surface. Supports are a bit of a nightmare to clean up – lots of small spaces and thin surfaces make it difficult to differentiate between supports and features. The higher the infill, the better: the ships take a beating in the hands of kids, and the denser they are, the longer they survive.
