Nautilus submarine on table

Nautilus submarine on table 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 found I can stack the sections in my lychee slicer and it doesnt care so that's cool. I'm still going to struggle with the long thing pieces though definitely going to have to cut them up I think.

So this is presliced for a resin printer? How many prints is it, and are the hull pieces hollow then with drainage holes? I'm just trying to figure out how much work I'm going to need to do with this version over one that's been sliced like 3 times meant for a fdm that I'll have to convert?

Hi, The downloadable files are STL and can be used with any printer, including resin. The "Hulls" are not hollow. However one can adjust the inside filling in any slicer. I built mine at 35% in-fill. If I understand your question, No these are not pre-sliced, you will have to use your own slicer for the 3D printer you are using. Hope this helps.

Yes I bought it, it looks like I'm going to have to do a lot of prints to get a larger sized ship, the files arent sized properly to give 22 inches apparently so I have to figure out my own sizing. I need to figure out how to stack the hull parts so I'm not just doing like 30 separate prints.

I've been thinking about this I think the best way for me to print them is to bool them into sections rather than just having short little sections. I guess I'll take the center pieces which should be the largest piece then bool them to the max build volume of my printer.

The hulls are basically hollow though they're not fully thick they're wall sections.

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.

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?

No dimensions included. Translating from inch to mm is horrible
