Would like to see a Covie-Destroyer! :cool:
Love the Ardent Prayer - Beautiful Ship.
Great Work so far from you. Have been watching this for quite some time. There are so many amazing things apart from suits someone can make.
 
[Update 1.3]Time to polish a diamond
Last month I experienced some difficulty with my ender 3 as there were some issue’s with Y-axis Stepper motor, the X-axis belt, and some smaller extrusion problems. After almost 6 attempts I finally managed to print the last part and started printing the escort group made out of 3(or 4) SDV-class heavy Corvette`s(whom at least one will be Swords of Sang Helios).


Current status of CAS 3.0
The ship is now almost 100% printed(except some smaller details) and I have to say what a HUGE ship she is. Until now the most difficult part was that so called ‘Neck’ part of the ship as the internal shear forces are pretty big at that point which made assembling that part a huge pain in the ***:lol:

However by adding two internal brass bars the construction became a lot stronger and filling up the internal parts of the ‘neck’ with construction cement made the overall construction also a lot stiffer. I tried to make the construction as stiff and strong as possible in order to prevent breaking or deflection over time. For the rest of the ship this wasn’t a problem as those parts had a greater surface to process the forces released upon it.

Getting the surface of the ship right is the next phase and i`l be mainly working on that in the comming weeks.

First Instalments
I cut out the centre floor of the ship in order to be able to install electronics. I chose to cut out the floor not only for the electronics but also so that I could add a new main glass beam with more detail. I am currently still developing it but it is already going to be a way better one than the ship currently has/had. credits to Bungie tho for the original one;)


Electronics Overview
For the electronics I have made up my mind and chose 4 locations which at least have to be lighted. These are the Nose Beam, Centre Beam, Engines, Roof entrance and front ‘thingy’ of the ships core.

In order to achieve this goal and be able to use the centre and front laser beam device as hole`s for a stand to put the ship on I’ll have to do some more work in 3D Builder and Catia.


Possible ways for transmitting light throughout the ship’s hull
I do have been experimenting with some early ways of adding light. The one I currently have as the main option is lighting the PLA and paint everything that should not glow with a black primer before painting the ship. I`m convinced that this is the easiest way but If you guys have any idea feel free to let me know.


Fleet News:
I`m currently almost done with printing the SDV`s and I am planning the printing process of the CPV Destroyer and the defence platform. At the moment I report the progress on these ships(and platform) together with the CAS updates but hope to give them their own more specific updates in the near future.


For now this is everything I can show you.

As always, Enjoy!

When I first saw the Long Night of Solace model from spartan games I thought exactly the same :lol:
