@nrek Heya! I had a question on your models... was there a specific reason why the models were made 'hollow' inside, instead of a solid object?

Seems the 3d printer is doing a lot of legwork on the insides making 'print supports' (eats up more material, and moves slower), when it normally would do a lighter weight lattice crisscross work to fill the solid voids.

Just curious. Image of a cutaway showing what its trying to do on the inside:

Normally the infill is like this based on setting:

Printing is going well otherwise!

@GeekJoan is correct, the separated model was meant to be printed on an SLA resin printer like the Form 2.  The single full figure model was meant to be printed on an FDM printer.  Glad to see the parts generally still print ok in FDM, and that cutaway is a very cool way to show it!  I can see if the non hollowed out versions are in the same final state as the hollow ones and see about posting them.  Otherwise the mesh mixer route would be the best way to go.

Great to see everyone making so much progress on their own versions of this!

Hi,
I've extract the obj/stl model of the habitat-module from the game...
I've try to print it but it required some adjustment...
Inside the module there is the seat and many instrument that need to be removed...

If you want i can send you the stl files so you can fix it for FFF printer...
