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. Italso includes a detailed Dragon lander with hatches that open and close.

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.

  • Payload with TESS Satelite

    the Dragon capsule is not to scale, it should not require the large adapter... widht is 12 feet just like the F9 rocket...

      Yeah, thanks, it was pointed out to me a few days ago, so I added a second version that correctly fits Stage two of the rocket, but it is so much smaller that the detail on the Dragon would be unprintable, so I included both in the package. I should probably change the thumbnails to show this.

      This is a really well designed model that prints without the need of supports, making the printing of the components super easy with little cleaning required.

      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).
