I have the pre-3d print files… but there are in 9 parts because I wanted to mold/cast. I bartered with Pouk to add the 3d relief (would have taken me even longer to learn 3ds on top of all the other technology) in return for my giving him one of the casts.
I used https://moddler.com/ for my prints. I DON’T have access to all kinds of printers so I had to do it the old fashion way… pay for it. At that time, 2012, the printers that could do high accuracy, (.0006″ or .016mm)… are way out of my price range (100s of K) but I am not sure what the private market offers now in 2016… it changes so fast!
They fit together like a plastic model. I would be happy to share them, but want to “try” to get mine done first… I did put 5000.00 US into the personal project to make one… each piece was 3-4 hundred to print and the mold bell and air pump and all the misc supplies (and learning how to use them all)… lights for nav lights and fluctuating red light that is normally for model home fire places, I believe will work well for a thrust-er light.
I have translucent material to cast in, solid material as well… I was going to play around to get all the parts done to get the best looking final product to hang on my trophy case!
Since I finished the single player mission my goal is to get the 3d prints mold/cast and I wanted to offer a finished model (unpainted) to a winner in a competition based on the results of the completion of the single player mission but I am still working out the logistics on how to do so fairly while also monitoring cheating, lol.
Anyway long story short, I do not mind sharing at all… of course I have no rights to them, but as far as the work I put into to date I want to try to produce my own “deliverable” before I start sharing if that makes any sense at all?
PS the Hiigaran BC is also in my sights… so many desires, so little time! I want to do more missions too… ugh!
