Post 3D Printing Outsider ships
I recently picked up a M3D printer and was wondering if anyone has put together some files for printing Outsider ships. :)

I bought a 3D printer.

A Bellarmine would be a cool desk ornament.

I saw another site that sold PDF files for $2-3. That might be a good way for Arioch to make some easy cash, just sell some ship designs for $2-3 apiece.

Well what files do a 3d printer use? if any 3d model, am pretty sure arioch have at least one. Been in the Guess artwork section for quite some time.


otherwise i could give it a go in 3ds max... been a long time so i may have lots my touch (i think that the correct expression)

I have a entry level printer. It will take .obj or .stl files. Can't get any kinda detail on that for you yet. Sorry.

I've tried to look at printing some models that are near and dear to me, http://p3d.in/ms6yC for instance, and in the process learned that ships designed to look cool in 3d often have features and structures that are a real pain in the butt to print at scales that aren't going to be insanely expensive.

I have rough 3D models of most of the ships that I use for reference, but it would take a lot of work to transform them into printable meshes.
