3D Print Your Own Incredibly Elaborate Millennium Falcon!

Untitled-1

It was only a matter of time before someone clever put up files so that you could 3D-print and build your own Millennium Falcon model.

Well, not only has that happened, but this thing is detailed. Like, 2-3 months to print and another month to assemble kind of detailed.

A team of engineers at Gambody spent months designing this 1:34 scale Millennium Falcon. Currently comprising 176 individually-printed parts and available to purchase for $74.99, the design covers the top and bottom hulls of Solo’s homestead.

Oh, but it doesn’t end there.

Later this year, Gambody will release an additional kit that will allow you to print the interior of the Millennium Falcon – rooms, hallways, mechanical components and all.

“We divided the spaceship into several parts so that they could fit onto small heated bed of home 3D printers,” says Yurii Efimov, co-founder of Gambody. “The model’s top and bottom hulls consist of 176 parts; additional external elements make up another 60 parts. We broke the spaceship down into several kits on purpose, to please all requirements. Let’s assume that someone will want to 3D print only the model’s hull and hang it on the wall. Therefore, there’s no sense in this person to print all internal layout components. Also, it is likely that someone will want to use the spaceship’s hull as a PC body frame.”
