Hi Guys,
New to this forum, and looking for a 3D model of the Millennium Falcon to print, but this only needs to be a basic, low-poly model, as I want it at 1/2256 scale (about 2.4cm).

Happy to pay a few bucks, but I do think this is a fairly easy request.
At this size, it can be solid, making the whole back-plane nonsense a non issue.

Thanks!

Should it also be textured?

edit:Far from the best that I've done, but if you want it you can have it for free, just not sure how to set the size of the print

I have no idea of how this works.... I guess I can send you the obj file. but there is sort of a problem with scale, can't really understand how to get it 2.4cm long

anyways, attached the file to this post.

tried loading in netfabb but it failed. Normally this is what I would use to rescale to a specific size.

here is without fixing the errors. shapeways will probably fix to be correct but may not.

Just tried it. Works well:

Not for sale as it is not my model. Will remove in a week,

I was able to open in meshlab, and scale down to 2.4cm. Took me a minute to figure out how to do it. http://www.shapeways.com/model/367539/millenium_falcon_ml.ht ml?key=6adf6328dc57a97c71abf5ba1887c192
The file is attached

only thing I find odd is that I did scale it in 3ds max to be 2.4 cm, but that for some reason did not work when I tried to upload it....
