Falcon Heavy and Falcon 9 3D print model

This model has been revised and improved. It now fits tighter and corrections were made. I was inspired to create this rocket model after watching the test launch of Space X's Falcon Heavy.

As usual, I designed it to be 3d printable without external supports and as easy as possible to assemble.

All the pieces slot together with a medium to tight fit, so some clean up may be required on some pieces. No glue (Apart from greeblies) will be required.

I also designed adapters so that 50mm PVC pipe can be used for the main body sections to reduce printing time. I have supplied greeblies(detail) that can be glued onto the PVC for some detail.

All pieces fit into each other, so I made mine shorter than the Falcon heavy. So yes... Elon's is bigger than mine. ;)

The total height would be close to a meter high if the correct number of sections is used on this model.

The landing legs snap open with the use of pistons and closes by clipping onto the body. So it can be displayed with the landing legs up or down. I show the release button on the pistons facing up in my video, but for better stability, the piston must be turned around so that the release button is on the bottom.

Items supplied:

  • Main Centre rocket
  • 2 side boosters with attachments
  • Stage 2 rocket with Dragon payload
  • Payload with TESS Satelite

Solid model - well thought design and very efficient with the PVC adapters. Designer was very responsive to my questions! Awesome work!

Some models have unwanted holes or too thin walls, even when sized up to 140% or larger.
