HISTORY OF MEGATHRON

Megathron is an enormous battleship of the Gallentean race. Its main battle feature is large hybrid turrets of a blaster type. Megathron is capable of inflicting huge damage upon other ships both in close combat and from quite a distance - that is how the battleship gained immense popularity in PvP. Due to its long-range properties the Mega is often used in clashes between players as the main striking force. There are lots of possible fittings on the Megathron: the player can use enhanced armour that gives the ship a good advantage on the front line in battle. The Mega can also carry multiple heavy combat drones or fit a big tank. Thanks to its 4 mid slots and 8 lows Megathron is extremely invulnerable. Though Megathron in EVE Online is quite slow - enough skills and experience can guarantee the player success in battlefield.

ABOUT THIS 3D MODEL

The model is saved in STL files, a format supported by most 3D printers

FFF/FDM version features:
- Contain 45 parts;
- Assembly kit includes locks. One part of  Lock (9_Ge_lock_10H_(x65)) needs to be printed 65 times;
- Made with full equipment of turrets;
- Made with special stands for you to display all the ship’s intricate details from different angles or to make it look as if the battleship is flying.
- Made with windows and hollow parts so you can easily install diodes inside of the model to make it look even more spectacular.
- Made with enhanced detalization;
- All parts are divided in such a way that you will print them with the smallest number of support structures.

SLS version features:
- Same as FFF/FDM but smaller, also made as 1 part;

All STL files for 3D printing have been checked in Netfabb and no errors were shown.

Note: Before starting 3D printing the model, read the Printing Details for CuraSimplify3D or Slic3r Software.

Scale: The model's scale was calculated from the Megathron's actual height that is 1083 m. The 3D printing model's chosen scale is 1/2000 for the FFF/FDM version and 1/4000 for the SLS version.

FFF/FDM version dimensions:
A printed model is 197 mm tall, 227 mm wide, 544 mm deep.

SLS version dimensions:
A printed model is 98.5 mm tall, 113.5 mm wide, 272 mm deep.

WHAT WILL YOU GET AFTER PURCHASE?

- STL files of Megathron 3D Model for 3D printing which consist of 46 parts;
- 2 versions of files for this model for FFF/FDM, SLS;
- High-poly detailed model of Megathron​;
- Detailed settings that we provide for Cura , Simplify3D and Slic3r for the best print;

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.

Note:
- 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.
