I do need to paint and remove loose strands of plastic. Since this the 50 anniversay of the show I am giving myself the whole year to do it. The helm took 20 hours

Nice. I've started working on my bridge again, as well. At the moment, I'm producing the bridge chairs.

PLA plastic. Below I am doing one of the bridge rails. I have found so many things on 3D Warehouse I could print for years in the DST/AA scale. Transporter rooms, sickbay, shuttlecraft, conference room, engineering on and on

Whoa, how cool!  So correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like you used my SketchUp bridge model?  That's awesome; when I created it almost a decade ago, I had no idea it would ever be used in this way.  Just phenomenal.  Certainly puts a fire under my butt to get my own 3D printer and do this.

Yes it is yours. I thanked in a post on 3d warehouse back then and I will today because it is great. It is so detailed. I first tried it at 10 percent and seeing it was a tad too big so I am doing it at .92. I doing it sections, like you did with my next being Uhura. I made one of hers in the past at the bigger scale and it was so detailed it a little slot so you can insert a little data card! You did great work and than you for it!

It's had it issues. I have had for 8 months and I'm on my fourth hotend and just two weeks ago I shattered the hot bed removing a stuck piece. That was 90 dollars out of pocket given my warranty is
out now.

Yes it is PLA.

When I say detail I mean the hand painting I will have to do. I am not the best painter

I am running behind. My unit has been down for a couple of weeks thinking it was a stepper driver only to discover it was the extruder motor. I am way behind schedule.

As you can see above I have completed 3 of the ten sections and will probably redo the the turbolift alcove. I am not happy with how I connected it.

As you can see in the second picture Racer_X did great work on the file. That is the science section and just check out the details on the library computer.

I am not happy with my paint choices. Acrylics are just too dull and I am thinking about redoing it in Enamel I cleaned the stray burs off of the helm scanner so I must reglue that.

My motor is on the way, so after the turbolift ( I am doing the tube too ) on to engineering

Really phenomenal work, and I'm looking forward to seeing the end of this project.  I do want to apologize, though, for the bridge chairs; they're clearly not up to snuff.  Complex shapes are something I never figured out in Sketchup, so they don't look as good as they should.  :angry:

Your chairs are not as bad as some. Some others printed out with big holes in the back. I appreciate your effort, How long did that file take you??
