by • July 28, 2016 • No Comments

3dp-ten3dpthings_spaceships_bannerThis week I’m on vacation, but I didn’t want to leave you all hanging for 3D printing projects so I threw together a swift list for you. This week I decided to highlight spacecraft of a few of the many science fiction films, TV shows and video games of all time. All of the versions that I selected this week are iconic in their own right, and in addition just rad appearing creations. In reality space ships are many likely not going to appear like any of these creations, but it’s certain fun to pretend that they are.

So here they are, Ten of the radest 3D Printable-bodied Spaceships of science fiction films and video games:
