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
  • Dragon Spacecraft

      Excelent model with perfect details. It's cool gift to my 6-year future austronaut son. Parts with locking mechanism is a great idea - that make model to interactive toy with many rockets variants. And finally - Tesla roadster on send stage is cool! Mostly parts printed on Prusa MKi3 with standard 0,4MM noozle and small parts on 0,25MM noozle without any problems with model (including grid_fin_thin, roadster_rims ands tyres separatly).

      Not Recommended
      Some models have unwanted holes or too thin walls, even when sized up to 140% or larger.
