Well, I think the sidewalls are done! Published to grabCAD and free to download and start tweaking and printing. This was a lot of work – whew – but I learned a lot. There will definitely be some things that I’ll be doing differently from a workflow standpoint; things I’ll be doing different when I start to tackle the rear wall – which is up next!
Here’s a view looking toward Han’s side:
… and a view looking toward Chewie’s side:
This was probably the trickiest bit to source image for; looking up at the roof.
I think that’s about it for the side walls. I’ll probably do a bit of noodling on some details here and there, but the bulk of it is done. Yay!
I still have some prep-work to do before I get it up on GrabCAD – like some sexy renderings (no more purple and teal toggles) and the panels sectioned down into manageable bits, but it should be any day now. I’ll also get these on the Form1 at the same scale I was doing the seats too!
So close. Just the pinstripes on the top most panel on Han’s side to go.
A little more panel work. See? That printer is motivation!
Love those purple and green toggles – not sure why Lucas didn’t do that in the first place?
Update: a bit more done this evening. Still a bit naked without the pinstripes.
I’m having fun getting the FormLabs Form 1 printer dialed in. Funny how every printer and printing technology has it’s idiosyncrasies. But here are the first prints!
The Nav Seat is about 1 ¾” tall at 1/35 scale so these are pretty tiny. The detail help up and the stair stepping isn’t too bad. I’m curious what they will look like with a coat of paint on them.
The science fiction of today is making the the science fiction of yesterday… In my house! Pew pew!
Let my adventures in 3d printing begin! Woot!
A minor update. Started work on Han’s side of the sidewalls and got through the lower two panels. Still a bit of a mystery of what is happing just behind Han’s left elbow – hardly ever see any views of this part. Any help would, um, be helpful…
And a quick render of all the panels together so far.
