So I got the Huey of the printer and my heart sank… the supports weighed more than the model, never a good sign.

The rotor is meant to be fastened to the drive rod thingy. It snapped off removing the supports. I wish I had made the closed door variant. This was the internal support.

Note the damage to the body. I put it in hot water like I would with the resin… bad idea.

The internal supports filled the whole cabin… bloody nightmare. It took 20 minutes to remove the internal supports.

So I think I need to redo this again and check the supports. Sadly Cura doesn’t show them. I may even hollow it out and do it on the resin one.

Door gunner in situ.

So as you can see he is a bit on the big side or the Huey is a bit on the small side.

I will have a play and see what I can come up with.

  1. Oooo, I hate when that happens, especially after a long print. I recently went back to CURA, after a long time just not printing stuff, and noticed that supports are shown any more.

    Oh, and have you tried “tree”supports? They use less material and longer to print, but are much easier to remove!
