half a saucer

Postby Tesral » Thu Jun 23, 2016 8:03 am

I could use some help from the 3D gurus around here. I have the profile for half a saucer. I need a 3D mesh made of it I can print.

Anyone?

Yes. It should be 57mm across when I print it. My knowledge of 3D programs is zip.

Easy. Do you want the lateral of the saucer straight as the pic or slight inclined as the Connie one?

Straight, two of these make one saucer. The plan is to make a half hull then amendment for the Various Ane ships of the first generation. Yes influenced by the Franz Joesph stuff. Resin casting is the eventual goal, but I need the half hull to get started.

A full saucer, with some amendments.

OK< it is almost done. I will make 2 versions: 1 solid and another hollow, if you want to print it in better materials.

Cool. I'll see about getting it made at my maker space.
