Default Soyuz TMA-3

This is my first post and my first attempt at building a 3D printed rocket. Found the files on thingiverse website. Thought it would go together easily, but so far have spent several weeks modifying pieces. Some of the files didn't apply and others printed at the wrong scale. Will use F or G motors for power. Requires plenty of sanding to remove the filament lines and it is heavier than I expected.

Slick. I'll be interested in hearing how it flies.

Cool, this looks great! What plastic filament material did you use, and what model of 3D printer?

Thanks. I'm told it was abs plastic on a Stratasys Fortus 250mc printer.

You are very lucky to own or have access to a $45,000+ 3D printer; over 250 times the price of the Creality Ender 2 that I own. Even the ABS filament for the Fortus 250MC costs over $100 per kilo, that is about 10X the cost for the materials I use for 3D printing!
