3D model description

A simplified remix of Fergobirck's lovely quadrant. I just wanted Prop/Mix/Radiator axes and a load of buttons. I've given the controls a bit more stiffness with hairy string and tightly bolting the potentiometers together. I've also extended the clamps a bit, my desk is very thick.

I printed at 0.4 mm, rough and ready prints to go with my hideously untidy wiring. Arduino sketch also included, you'll need the usb joystick library. Again some customisation of values needs to be done in the code. Not the best code either, holding buttons down results in repeat presses.

Other than the printed parts, you'll need some M3 threaded rods and bolts. I used a knockoff Arduino Pro Micro, anything based off the ATMega32U4 should do. Plus a pile of wire and some low-value pull-down resistors. Obviously this can be extended for as long as you've got a chip with enough inputs.

Apparently thinking up crazy ideas for real spaceships all day isn't enough for me, so I create fictional ones...

Advice, comments, suggestions, and requests are all welcome!

Thank you all for your kind comments and generous tips, I'm sorry if I don't personally thank all of you.

Please don't sell these onto Shapeways! It's a breach of the CC license these models were made under. However, if you don't have a printer and want small spaceships, they are now available at Scourge Scenics! Check out

I am open to commissions, however at the moment I am extremely busy.

I've also started collecting my random musings and some helpful advice on modelling and printing in blog form:
