Just got my 3D Printer in July 2016, It's an Anet A8 printer bought off of E-Bay to get a look into the 3D printing world. I have designd models in 3D apps most notably Truespace and Blender and want to see what is involved in making 3D printed models.
Found a lot of models on Thingiverse, currently working on some star trek models, scaling them to 1/1400 scale like the ERTL kits.
Currently working on:
Fixing the Constellation Class Startship - removing all the non-manifolds from the pieces currently uploaded
Fixing the Excelsior Class Starship - removing the non-manifolds that are in the current upload
Fixing the Oberth Class Starship - fixing the non-manifolds of the currently uploaded model
Constitution Class Starship (refit) - beginning cutting up the model
Nova Class Starship - trying to figure how to cut the model to preserve as much detail as possible; also the engine nacellses are a bit of a challenge, trying to get it right
