As I've said before, I upgraded to the Creality Ender 5 Pro due in part to the large print area (220x220x300mm) that presents lots of opportunities!
Now I've had a few issues with the printer since I received it, namely intermittent filament feeding. This (fingers crossed) has finally been solved with the replacement of the entire hot end.
To try things out I thought I'd give it a challenge....let's print a Team Yankee helicopter gunship!
I found a suitable model of the Mi-24 Hind on Thingiverse, in approximately 1/144 scale. I thought this would be fine as a true 15mm scale aircraft might be a little over bearing on the table.
The model is designed by Steve Lava (Lava808) and can be found here; - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3030137
I decided I would slice it up (within 3D Builder) to simplify printing further still. Creating two separate .stl files for the fuselage and rotors + weapons.
