Nautilus 3D print model

This is a HIGHLY DETAILED model of Captain Nemo's Nautilus from 20,000 leagues under the sea by Jules Verne. Attached are the SLA files. Each component is designed so that no supports are required to build them in the 3D printer. Also attached is a .pdf file with assembly instructions. The SLA files are scaled for a model that is 22 inches (L) X 5 inches (W) X 6 inches height, with stand. I built my model in ABS and used Super Glue to assemble.

There is a separate SLT file named Sail Deck in the downloads. Please use this file instead of the one in the zip file.

    I purchased this, however the 3D printer we use employs CURA. Which works in MM instead of inches. Is there a way to convert the inches to mm?

          I like this model and have tried to print it, but the scaling seems to be different for each piece, making each piece a different size. I'm guessing it's a slicer issue. I used Simplify3d and scaled all of the parts to the same percentage, but they printed different sizes. Is there a common denominator that I'm missing?

            Great Model of Favorite subject. Did mine in PLA Dark Gold (Unpainted) with windows and lights done in a metallic emerald paint. Glue was mix of super glue, weld on and testors classic tube glue. I use windows 3d builder and Simplify 3D. Machine is a Qidi X-Plus. I just got into the 3D printing hobby recently, but old plastic model builder and cad monkey. Lots of learning curve and unusable teaching parts, but a great learning experience. This is not a plug and play model. It does require adjusting settings between different part types on the printer and in my case I split a few parts to make printing and no supports easier. The scale issue because the model is in inches is a challenge. I suggest that once you have a parts that are the right size write down the scaling you used and then use them as test parts in your split program and see how your new part to be printed compares. Remove the test parts before complying the print file, so you don't print them again if you do not need them. I would say this is a good project for the more experienced 3d printer enthusiast or in my case a novice that is willing to go through learning curve to gain the experience. Printing and build time with unusable learning parts was three weeks.
