Man these ships are incredible! Your picture with the hangar puts into perspective just how freaking big the infinity is! As usual, great work.
Thanks! it was pretty crazy to realize that THOSE little slots were the massive hangars that you see in Spartan Ops
Oh, man your stuff is amazing!
really great work! Can't wait to see the whole result. this is a real masterpiece!
what's next on the 'ships that I'm going to make' list?
I have one more ship sliced up and ready to print, which really is the "big kahuna". by FAR the biggest ship (in every direction) that i've built so far.
The Spirit of Fire
I started, as usual, by slicing it up, which kinda determines how big its gonna be when its finished. (bigger chunks means smaller ship)
so needless to say i made it huge:
It came out to 22 parts total, each one at an average of 16 hours of print time. so, time to get printing!
Most of the ship's parts were juuust small enough to be able to fit both halves in one print, barring the back half where its widest, of course. So, it was just print, clean up, arrange, repeat!
Part 3 and so on:
Around part 3 or 4, i realized that the "base" ships attached to the underside of the wings were getting printed all gnarly because they were too small to register for support material in my slicer:
So i snipped em off and pulled em off of the 3D model to print seperately:
Back to the ship!
There's her badge, looking snazzy~
And finally, a progress measurement! i wasn't able to get a proper measurement (because importing the entire ship into my slicer would crash it) but rough estimates put it at roughly 3 feet long and close to a foot wide (at its widest)
That's the image limit, part 2: more printing.
