3D model description

This is the Gemini capsule and service modules from the 1960's program that let us learn everything we needed to know for the Apollo program. I found the basic model in sketchup from the Trimble site (http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=13ddfafa0b41d8f77550eb58de5306fc&prevstart=48). The model does not have the kind of detail I would like for printing but unlike many of the other models I found it was actually round as opposed to faceted.

At some point I may go back and add some raised lines to show the segments, hatches, panels and attitude jets. But for now this is enough to impress most passers by! Enjoy!

3D printing settings

I had to rescale the imported model to 60% to fit on my platform

I used the following settings. I wanted to print it quick just to see if it would work at all.

Layer 0.34

Fill 5%

Shells 3

Supports : on

It filled with support material behind the back of the spacecraft as that part is concave. You might not need this but I was worried it would be too hard to bridge.

I stopped the print just after the little side "vents" finised on the service module and switched from white to black.
