VF-2SS (3D Printed)

Hi Citizens of SDF-1,

Just got myself to learn the 3D design software & 3D-print. One of the first practice object is the bastard child of the Macross universe, the VF-2SS.

Software is using Sketchup. Printer technology used is FDM (to save budget ), I outsource it to a printing service.

I scale the model to 1/60, but I'm not sure whether the measurement is correct (judging from comparison with DX VF-25)

Due to my lack of skill, I haven't been able to create printable panel lines, so I'll have to add them manually ... after I smooth out all the FDM's layer lines.

 

Critics & Suggestions are welcomed.

That looks great!  I too am having to learn 3D.  2D now has it's limits.  Thanks for sharing!  Are you using an acetone fog to smooth it over?- MT

I am planning with traditional way using sandpaper, but I will dig about the acetone fog.

so perhaps our 1/72 vf-17 and VF-9 Cutlass isnt too far off then?

I haven't think about the next project...but maybe.
