I got it today the print be great. The little beast is a bear to photograph, so no picture yet. I'm going to get one from the solid model as well. That will be easier to cut the deflector into.

I am tickled pink. I took the model shiftdel made for me, imported it into TinkerCAD and did THIS!

My big fat fingers can't get in the way. For you old 3D modelers it is not much. For me a shaky first step.

Congrats, Tesral, now you are part of the modelers club! It looks quite good, I like the shape you gave for the deflector dish, and the overall structure, seems a great idea for ships without a secondary hull.

Most of the Ane ship have a secondary hull. I just like it there. I cann the first generation ship the FJ Generation because I was heavily influenced by the Franz Joseph Technical manual and the identical saucers.

These and their upgrades are the end result of the work so far.

I also discovered I need to alter the profile as the cut changes the look a bit. Something I didn't know from just the flat drawings.

Very cool! It's nice to see how "easy" things can be for who knows what is doing!

:)
Thanks,

Yan.

Easy, it is to laugh. I'm beating my head on this and trying to get somewhere.

The physical copy is ordered, in FUD of course.

Very nice. I can't get my head around the shapes on a saucer so will stick to easy things like bases in squares and circles.
