Saturn V by Carcasaink September 06 2019
While most of the people are printing small gifts and vases, team Carcasaink gets far away from basic 3D printing. Take a look at a really amazing work on printing Saturn V, designed by Paul Fisher.
Hello, how is your day going?:)
My day is doing great as always, printing a lot of stuff, bringing to reality awesome ideas.
What do you have here?
The Saturn V rocket with gantry is our biggest print so far, we choose this challenge because we love the history behind this masterpiece of engineering and this model is very complex and difficult to get done, thousand of parts, small details, everything is just perfect to test our machines and settings.
Who made the model for this make?
You can find the complete model here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:911891 all the credits to its creator! (Mr. Paul Fischer, editor’s note)
What materials did you use?
We used Fillamentum PLA in the whole print and a lot of crazy glue to join the pieces together.
Was it hard to finish?
Was pretty hard to finish because not only the bunch of pieces that were printed (over 2000) but also because of the fine details and the time that took the big ones. Some pieces required almost 3 days to get done, some parts of the rocket (for example, the F1 engines) took a lot of hours of gluing and because they are small pieces, sometimes the assembling process was challenging. The rocket itself was easy to print and glue together but the gantry was pretty hard, not only because it has a lot of parts but also the precision is a must.
Why did you choose Fillamentum materials for this project?
Because of its reliability, vivid colors, easy to print and its price.
