Thanks for this iconic model, but I have two issues with it:

  1. Somehow, even with Brim, the cutting edge of the primary hull is not even but bend, so they does not fit together
  2. The left nacelle of the secondary hull rear keeps coming off the printer bed even with brim at about 83mm height. Second time now.

So I would rather print the disk in one part with supports (not in the files) and the real secondary hull in a different orientation (can do that).

I only have ABS to print and I failed miserably in all four tries. The dish part is too thin and will bend or distort every time. Would be nice to have this model .stl solid to allow to the user to choose the wall thickness and infill. Maybe works best in PLA, bit in ABS I give up.

The STL files are rendering for me, I don't know why they wouldn't render for you

Anyone got a stand for this model ?

Brilliant, thank you. Printed lovely.

Does it need supports printed?

I printed it straight off without supports on the cube 3. Perfect.

Thanks for the model. I made one for a trophy for whoever wins when we play Star Trek Catan.

Yea, I tried twice. Found out that covering the sides of my replicator 2 with plastic and turning off my ceiling fan made it stop curling at the edges. The second time worked nicely:)

I tried printing 6 times... none of them worked! Seems that the Primary Hull`s are becoming concave, and poping out of the plataform...

Same. I guess that's because the center of the print cools off later than the edges and pull the edges inwards. I'd rather print the disk in one piece with sufficient supports.

Very nice model! I printed it without problem, except for the very top of the Secondary Hull front: last layers where extruded in the air. Don't know if it was a Skeinforge or EMC2 issue... Not a big deal.

Question: how do you assemble the parts? I used ABS, and I don't know what glue to use. Is it possible to assemble them by metling the contact surface? Is there a trick to do that?

Thanks.

Thank you for the great model, it printed very well. Quick question...is there an engineering reason the primary hull is cut on a diagonal?

No engineering reason but cosmetic. There is small detail on the sides of the hull and I didn't want to cut through that.

need a little printable stand for this model.

Could you post an STL of the fully assembled model as well? I can print it without support material in one piece using my ZCorp machine.

Printed nicely, thank you!

This made me think of those Gamescience Star Trek gaming figures from the early 80s. I could never quite figure out why they could make a variety of Federation ships in injection molded plastic, but the Klingon and Romulan ones could only be made in 'lead'.

How big is the assembled ship?

The ship is about 45mm tall by 70mm wide and about 190mm long.

That printed out nicely! Congrats. :-)

I think there is something with your STLs. Could you post them differently?

All files uploaded again.

Cool...I'll go rename all the others too then and hope they work too.

I saw that no images were generating for them...they did load properly in BFB Axon.

I'm suspecting the long file names could be the issue...will try load them again.

They render correctly for me, or at least the secondary front hull does
