SpaceX Dragon 2 Crew Capsule (updated; more STLs)

Prints (1)

Description

I'm a big fan of SpaceX and with the launch of their Dragon 2 demo-mission I wanted to release a detailed model to celebrate!

Release 2 is OUT!  All new files are named "release 2). 1st released files are clearly named "old..." updated design is closely based on live footage during the docking with ISS. I've also designed a hinge for the nose cone (that's easily replaced if broken). If you print at 100% scale, there are 2 1.75mm holes that you can cut away a piece of filament and push in, to keep the hinge-parts to move out. Don't glue as you might want to replace it if you accidentally break the lid/hinges!

Note: Updates will be done to this file (including adding details, and Dual-color versions)

This is designed to be printed in PLA with a 0.4mm nozzle on a 200x200mm build plate.  Scaling down to around 75% is OK to fit on smaller build plates.  NOTE scaling to 90% is confirmed with Release 2 (hinged version) Lower than that will be troubles on standard FDM-printers.

There is a tiny gap modeled for better fitting in "full" scale. If you want to create a HUGE model, contact me and I'll adjust the gap for you. The circle in the heat-shield and (upcoming) main capsule is to help break surface tension on the first 2-3 layers, reducing risk of warping, but as a commentator stated; will add a little to the print time.
