Pretty amazing! Just about how many hours go into a project like this?

It's hard to say as I have lots of things on the go at once. I started designing and printing it just over a year ago but then I've been painting it since the beginning of the year. One year is pretty quick for me.

Outstanding work!!! Could you print up the parts and sell them as a kit? PP

How about just the STL files? There are a lot of us out here who could print it ourselves if we had the files.

He has a Shapways page(s) with all kinds of cool stuff. I bet he posts the T 17 parts there.

But then you'll have to pay shapeways prices for printed parts and that's never going to happen. As far as I know, shapeways never releases just the STL files, they print the parts and then you pay their outrageous prices and if he's lucky the guy that designed them might get 20%.

Yep. That's why I think your idea of printing them yourself and selling the parts as a kit works out better for all.

Or you could just let a guy buy the STL files and print his own.

OK, I checked out the blog and that's one hell of a design. What glue are you using to fasten the parts? I've been using EMA plastic weld and it holds pretty good. If you do put out kits, you might think about a provision for servo steering. Again, very impressive, and a good looking model.

Just can't imagine the time behind the computer and trial and error. What an awesome example of hard work!
