Michelle, I have to say I'm partially inspired by your models. I've recently picked up a Creality Ender 3 and was wondering if you had any advice on slicing Star Trek ships and print settings for these designs. Having played around with my printer for the best part of the weekend I think I'm in need of advice.

Ah, thanks for talking a bit about this. Do you mind if I ask a few more questions?

Do you print in PLA or ABS? Any specific brand?
How much infill do you think works best for models in the 1/1000 scale?
Do you know which program your friend uses to split the STLs?
