    Questions

    How long did this print take?
    What file format are you using?
    Would it work better if I broke it up into pieces that can then be glued together?
    I think removing detail would be good too.
    No idea how long. I submitted it via my library's web page and they emailed me in a couple days when it was ready.
    I converted it to STL. Not sure if breaking it up would help. The hard-to-clean-up spots were the landing gear, the rear engine exhausts, and the bow antennae.

    Hope this helps.

    Yes, converted it to STL. Our library has a printer and charges by the gram, plus a buck.

    I would like very much to do that and the leviathan as well. My wish is to work through all the Cobb designs I can.

    I guess making the dish antenna move would be asking for a bit much.

    That would be nice underslung the secondary hull of a Planet of the Titans type ship--like Discovery
