3D model description

This design is a model of an intricate steam-powered paddle boat. This vintage boat prints in multiple parts, which will have to be glued together; you have to print two of the paddle wheel halves so that you can glue them together on the rod in the back of the ship. Featuring a lot of detailed design, this boat seems complex. However, it can be printed in less than 50 grams of PLA and still retain detail.

3D printing settings

This boat should optimally be printed at 0.1 layer height for maximum detail to show. Infill should be around 15% - 30% and there should be at least 0.8mm of shells so the model is strong. This model can be printed at smaller sizes, but the larger the boat, the more detail will show.

Supports are recommended.
