EVA POD from the movie 2001 A Space Odyssey
This is a detailed accurate scale model of the EVA POD from the move 2001 A Space Odyssey. The model is 4.87” (123.7 mm) high and 5.78” (146.8 mm) wide.
I printed the parts for this model on a Printrbot simple metal with a 6 inch square bed and Simplify3D software (which I highly recommend). I used ABS but it can be printed (probably easier) in PLA.
The manipulator arms can be rotated up and down and slide in and out of the body
This model was designed to be printed in four colors, white, black, light gray or silver, and red. No paint is necessary for a great looking model but can be added for additional detail. The only paint used on the model in the attached pictures is: black dots on the arms, grey on the rear hatch control buttons, and a red dot on the left thruster ring. The rest of the color is individual plastic parts.
To attain a high degree of detail individual pieces are printed in positions most advantageous to producing the highest quality parts possible rather than accepting lesser quality detail with fewer parts.
All but six parts are printed without the need for supports.
