About this Product

Higher resolution version of the firebug model. Shapeways can't print this, but you can make one for yourself on any home printer. Here's the file: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11683 - now why don't you get yourself a printer and start making things?


IN: 1.439 w x 1.99 d x 0.576 h
CM: 3.654 w x 5.054 d x 1.462 h

@7777773 Many thanks. I downloaded and will print it as soon as I get my hot end's nozzle cleaned up.

@samern You can print either the halved models or the whole at once; the halves allow you to print it larger with less support material. There's also a derived version joec made that has some structural enhancements: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:31385

Excellent. From Thingiverse, do I print the 2 halves (I am guessing so, because it doesn't look like STL for V5 would print properly without losing detail?

@paulelderdesign Yeah, Shapeways runs on fairly regular rejection cycles and it sounds like they've gone back to rejecting everything again lately. This one could never print here, though. I recommend picking up a home printer; it's a lot more economic in the long run and the various made-up issues that Shapeways uses to avoid printing a model simply don't exist when you print for yourself.

Awesome! I will try it on my Solidoodle to see what happens. Now if I can get an STL of an AA-1A Yankee, I will have a nice model of the airplane I used to own....

@samern Yes, many times, in many sizes. It prints great on any home printer; it's only Shapeways that can't do it. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11683/copies

Has anyone tried to scale this thing up to see what happens when you print it on a Printrbot, Prusa or Solidoodle? I'd like to get it to be big enough to print, clean up, paint and display as a desk model.

Oh and the irony of it is that it printed on my Ultimaker XD

@7777773 I originally thought that we would get a sample of our print as standard as I saw people with photos. I'm not a fan of the shoot first ask questions later thing either, just recieved another email that my T2 arm won't print as it's "multiple shells" I know it is I made it as a one piece pendant with no functional parts. :O

@paulelderdesign Be sure to post your finished print ;-) It's fun to see people printing all the models that Shapeways mistakenly claims are unprintable.

@7777773 Hear hear I bought a 3d printer last week not only does it help me check for "thin walls" I can see the model itself print ;)

Shapeways can't print models with multiple shells any more - I've seen a sharp increase in previously printable models being declined by Shapeways, usually citing multiple shells. The only model that would get by as a single shell is a basic geometric form like a cube or a sphere... It seems that, either for lack of training or laziness, many files are rejected rather than printing now. For this reason I have given up on Shapeways. If you have your own printer, I have the file hosted at Thingiverse here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11683 If you lack your own printer, you could just upload it to http://i.materialise.com/ I have the file shared under a pretty liberal license, so go nuts.

I have not printed this through Shapeways yet & they have had some trouble printing complex models with multiple shells lately, but as long as their computers can handle the model it has printed at home OK in ABS and PLA plastics, which I believe would be similar to the Shapeways "Robust" materials.
