Falcon Heavy and Falcon 9

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. It also now includes a two piece Crew Dragon capsule and newly improved TESS model.

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.

I hope you like this model! Enjoy!

Does anyone have a parts list for this? A total of each that is required?
The PDF does show all the parts and how many of each if they are duplicated, but I don't list the actual number of parts in total. I have counted them all and in total I count 147 pieces. This includes the dragon, satellite and Roadster, but does not include 48 pins in the landing gear. I will definitely make improvements to the PDF to make things clearer.
Why is it unclear to how many to print for each piece for each type of model? Should even be clearly color coded if one wants to follow the exact print as in the pictures so I do not have to guess. If you pay, it should be more complete!
Would this work if I rescaled it to 65% of it's current size? That would match the scale of the Lego Saturn V, which I already have. Thanks
awesome work
Do you have a model of the Starlink Satellites?
Item rating

Started printing this over the weekend. Very impressed so far! If you’re a fan of Musk and SpaceX this is a must have!
The instructions for which parts to print in which color, and how many would have been simple to include. There is a bit of guesswork which should not be the case when you pay for schematics. My rating is for the ojects, 9 out of 10, but not having proper instruction, the entire product would be only a 7 out of 10.
very good design i loved it
