3D model description
These parts were designed to work with Starscream, Thundercracker and Skywarp. They have been designed with the idea of allowing them to be printed on both FDM and Resin 3D printers. This includes: Main wings, rear vertical wings, rear horizontal wings, 2 different null ray versions/sizes, cockpit, nosecone and landing gear/wheel. (Note: I did not attempt to print the nosecone, cockpit or landing gear/wheel on an FDM printer so those may or may not work out.)
I was using the Longer Orange 10 3D Printer with Longer Standard Resin and the FDM parts were printed on an Ender 3 in PLA.
Please note that while resin 3D printing is more accurate with details, they can still vary greatly from print to print.
This is mostly due to the “bleed” factor of the UV light exposure. What I did was to take the still slightly uncured parts and place them into their post holes to sort of “scrape” away excess prior to fully curing them under a UV lamp. (Note also that the white tends to change color after curing. Mine had a bit of a yellowish/red coloration. Sunlight UV curing may be a better option for white.)
Also, standard resins are quite brittle and do not have much flex to them. I made sure to run a 5 mm drill bit through the holes after curing to ensure their tolerance was correct. I did it after because there is always some shrinkage when the objects cure.
3D printing settings
Your curing times may vary. I found that I could go 10 sec/layer with gray resin, 15 sec/layer with black and white.
I printed these at 0.05 mm layer height.
On the Ender 3 I used 0.2 mm layer height and 10% infill.
