After designing the millennium falcon kit card, I thought I would try to design a tie interceptor to go with the other star wars kit cards we’ve printed for his office.

A-Wing Kit Card by Delman83

B-Wing Kit Card by Delman83

This was made to fit when printed on my homemade hypercube300 printer which is not the highest precision printer in the world, so you may have to adjust the holes, or use a little glue depending on how dialed in your printer is. Adjusting the z-scale slightly up or down without changing the x & y scale can help as well.

There are two versions included. One with a ring for hanging, or using as an ornament, and one without a ring.

Printed card is 120mm X 120mm to fit on most printers.
Assembled Model is roughly 82mm X 63mm X 50mm.

#2 Landspeeder Kit Card by fixumdude

We love the Star Wars Kit Cards bybenzz88EdabotNakozenanddelman83

After designing the millennium falcon and tie interceptor kit cards, a coworker suggested I try a landspeeder.

This was made to fit together when printed on my homemade hypercube300 printer which is not the highest precision printer in the world, so you may have to adjust the holes, or use a little glue depending on how dialed in your printer is. Adjusting the z-scale slightly up or down without changing the x & y scale can help as well.

If your filament is on the brittle side, for the front end piece and especially the windshield, it helps to try and put a little bit of a radius on the piece before attempting to snap them into place. This will help prevent a sharp bend in the piece.

Printed card is 120mm X 120mm to fit on most printers.
Assembled Model is roughly 91mm X 50mm X 27mm.

#5 The Four Elements Logos by xYeezySZN

====== UPDATE 9/24/20 =====

I have uploaded a fix for the water element and deleted the old Element 1 – Water.stl file. Download the “Element – 1 – Water – Version 2.0 Fixed.stl” file for the fix.

==========================

A friend of mine shared an etsy link with me and said “Can you print this?” and I said… well let’s try. Here we are.

ORIGINAL ETSY LINK HERE:
https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/591465184/singa-four-elements-metal-wall-decor

The elements are in 4 different .stl files, if you follow my instructions each part will take 6-10 hours but you can easily turn up the layer height and speed if you want to pump these out faster.

Filament_brand:

eSun

Filament_color:

Filament_material:

Notes:

These are designed to go to almost the very edge of an Ender 3 print bed 235×235. The individual pieces are ~186mm wide, 216mm long, 10mm tall. Orientate the design face down and rotate so that the corner of the teardrop is in the corner of your print bed. You want to print diagonally to utilize the most print bed space. You will struggle to print this if you have bed level issues. Printed at 215C/60C/0% cooling on the first layer, then 205C/55C/100% cooling after that. I put a layer of elmers glue stick down to keep nice, crisp corners and wall borders. No skirts, rafts, or brims needed. Print @ 48mm/s on the first layer, walls first, then print @ >=80mm/s wall/infill speed on the 2nd layer and up. Ironing enabled on the top layer.
