The massive dragonfly with the power to destroy planets, The Lexx, is a one-of-a-kind spacecraft that starred in a Canadian-German sci-fi series Lexx. The war between humanity and the insect civilisation is at its height and a trio of misfits and criminals embark on adventures through space on the board of the Lexx, “the most powerful weapon of destruction in the two universes”.

The Lexx is a self-aware organic ship composed of both insect and machine components. The author of the 3D printing Lexx spacecraft model gladly met the challenge and worked hard on depicting the features of the ship’s diverse forms and textures. The 3D artist’s creative efforts resulted in a brilliant and complex model for 3D printing that boasts a ship’s large and deadly eyes, intricate tail and elaborate textures and patterns that adorn its body. There’s no fictional spacecraft like Lexx, so you’d better hurry up to acquire one for your 3D printing collection!


Lexx Ship for 3D printing is a static assembly model and its moderation and adaptation for different types of 3D printers took the Gambody team 60 hours in total. For you to receive the cleanest 3D printing result possible and to minimize the amount of filament needed for generated support the spacecraft model was divided into many assembly parts, e.g. its long tail is sectional, its eyes, “mouth”, “carapace”, a pair of its legs, etc. are provided as separate STL files. 

All assembly parts are provided in STL files in recommended positions that were worked out in order to ensure the smoothness of the details’ surfaces after printing and that the 3D printing beginners won't face difficulties when placing the parts on a build plate. When downloading any model's file you will also receive "Assembly Manual" for FFF/FDM 1.0 and DLP/SLA/SLS 1.0 versions in PDF format. We highly recommend that you get acquainted with the “Assembly video” and "Assembly Manual" before getting down to the Lexx Ship model.

The model is saved in STL files, a format supported by most 3D printers. All STL files for 3D printing have been checked in Netfabb and no errors were shown.

The model's scale was calculated from the actual length of the Lexx Ship which is 10000 m. The 3D printing model's chosen scale is 1:15000 for the FFF/FDM version and 1:30000 for the DLP/SLA/SLS version.


FFF/FDM 1.0 version features:
- Contains 36 parts;
- A printed ship is 194 mm tall, 312 mm wide, 664 mm deep;
- Assembly kit includes lock 36_Ge_lock_x21 to connect the model's parts securely without glue that needs to be printed 21 times;
Highly-detailed exterior of the craft;
- In this version, the long tail of the spacecraft is sectional;
- This version's assembly requires additional "pins" to secure the parts that do not come in STL files but can be made out of short pieces of regular 1.75mm filament;
- Model is made hollow for you to introduce LED wiring and light up the thinned eyes; a spot to hide the battery is provided inside the body;
- Made with a special platform to conveniently display the ship among your Space Ships fleet;
- You can print the foundation of the platform with transparent material and install the LEDs underneath;
- All parts are divided in such a way that you will print them with the smallest number of support structures.

DLP/SLA 1.0 version features:
- Contains 20 parts;
- A printed ship is 97 mm tall, 156 mm wide, 332 mm deep;
Highly-detailed exterior of the craft;
- Model is made hollow for you to introduce LED wiring and light up the thin eyes; a spot to hide the battery is provided inside the body;
- Made with a special platform to conveniently display the ship among your Space Ships fleet;
- You can print the foundation of the platform with transparent material and install the LEDs underneath;
- All parts are divided in such a way to fit the build plates and to ensure that support structures are generated where needed.

Below you can find printing recommendations for CuraSimplify3D and Slic3r software.

Cura printing recommendations:

These are basic settings that were tested in Cura 4.8.0 slicer. 

The test models were printed on Ultimaker 2, Creality Ender 3, Creality CR-10S Pro V2, Anycubic I3 Mega, Anycubic I3 MegaS 3D printers with PLA and PETG filaments.

Disclaimer: The following printing settings are a recommendation, not an obligation. The parameters can vary depending on the peculiarities of your 3D printer, the material you use and especially the particular assembly part at hand. Each part that any model comprises often needs preliminary review and you are free to tweak the settings the way you find suitable.

- You can scale up the model (downscaling is not recommended!);
- All connectors should be printed at 100% Infill;
- For all parts of locks (“ge_lock” in “Source files”) you need to change "Brim" type to "Skirt" in Build Plate Adhesion section.
