For a few years now, the 3D version marketplace Gambody has been working to enhance the relationship between gaming and 3D printing, aiming to contribute licensed gaming-related 3D versions of games such as Dota 2 and Starcraft 2. Now, Gambody is invoking the force with what may be their most more detailed and expansive 3D version, a replica of the Millennium Falcon spaceship. This is not just your ordinary small-scale version either, the create team made a 1:34 scale version based on the sketches and material on the market through the Star Wars Wiki, outcomeing in a version of 717mm (of 2.4 feet) wide, and 244mm tall, and featuring almost each more detail of the exterior hulls and interior layout, that include the secret compartments, cockpit, engine departments, wiring and ventilation systems that Han Solo and Chewy knew so well.

In order to manufacture this large-scale version printable on a computer desktop 3D printing device, the create team split the version into a number of parts, just the top and bottom hulls alone consist of 176 total parts (an extra
60 parts manufacture up the rest of the version). The Gambody team, who have fully created and tested their large-scale Millennium Falcon version, recommend printing the version parts at a 0.01mm layer height for the optimal outcome. They’ve provided a more detailed assembly guide video on YouTube (that you can view below), featuring just how realistic this version in fact is.

“We broke the spaceship down into several kits on purpose, to please all requirements. Let’s expect that someone can want to 3D print just the version’s hull and hang it on the wall,” said Yurii Iefimov, the Co-Founder of the Gambody 3D printing marketplace. “Therefore, there’s no sense in this man to print all internal layout components. In addition, it is most likely that someone can want to use the spaceship’s hull as a PC body frame.” If you take place to be feeling ambitious, the entire Millennium Falcon version is on the market for print, but there are most other iterations that can be created of just the hull.

The version, that took the Gambody createers over 800 hours create, is incredibly well-more detailed, but it does take really the amount of time and filament to manufacture. The entire construction is estimated to go through of three standard spools of 3D printing filament, and, depending on your computer desktop 3D printing device, of two to three months to print each single part. But for those diehard Star Wars fans and 3D print enthusiasts out there, I’m certain this intensive project may be considered nothing short of a excellent time. The exterior set of 3D versioned parts for the large-scale Millennium Falcon are already on the market on Gambody for $74.99.
