Designed by Drafting & Design 11 student, Bryce F., this outstanding model of a space shuttle has cargo bay doors that open and close.
Assembly requires the use of 1.8 mm filament to connect parts where the holes are aligned and to use as hinges for the cargo bay doors.
Gluing the parts (except the doors) and utilizing the filament, in the same way miniature model pinning is done, is highly recommended.
Unfortunately Bryce's teacher didn't get a photo of this amazing project after it was printed and assembled ...so you'll just have to take our word for it. It prints great and we think it's pretty awesome!
All our parts were printed in PLA with 3 shells and 15% infill.
Some parts do require support (6x Cargo Bay Doors, Front Fuselage, and several of the wing parts) while other parts do not require support.
It was assembled using 1.8mm PLA fillament for friction fit holes in the fuselage and wing sections. These can be glued.
The 1.8mm also acts as a hinge for the cargo doors which will open and close -- so don't glue them :)
