ABOUT THIS 3D MODEL

A fictional “Matrix” hovercraft Nebuchadnezzar was captained by Morpheus and helped to find Neo, whom Morpheus believed to be The One. The ship was used for the transportation of the crew and may be considered as its essential part. Named after the king of Neo-Babylonian Empire, Nebuchadnezzar symbolizes the journey and motivations of its captain and is particularly dear to him.

Inspired by the “Matrix” iconic movie, our contributive 3D artist created this beautifully designed hovercraft. The ship simply amazes with its futuristic appearance and extraordinary shape. Numerous electromagnetic levitation disks give Nebuchadnezzar a very spectacular look. The hovercraft is equipped with a cannon and turrets, and its impressive antennae array over the entire surface is used to attack and infiltrate its signal inside the Matrix. Enigmatic and high-tech, Nebuchadnezzar will brighten every collection! 

ADAPTATION FOR 3D PRINTING

Nebuchadnezzar for 3D printing is a static assembly model and its moderation and adaptation for different types of 3D printers took the Gambody team 48 hours in total. 

For you to receive the cleanest 3D printing result possible, minimize the amount of filament needed for generated support, the spaceship was divided into convenient assembly parts.

All assembly parts in the FFF/FDM 1.0 version 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 1.0 versions in PDF format. We highly recommend that you get acquainted with the “Assembly video” and "Assembly Manual" before getting down to Nebuchadnezzar.

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 length of Nebuchadnezzar. The 3D printing model’s chosen scales are 1:128 for the FFF/FDM version and 1:256 for the DLP/SLA version.

Below you can find printing recommendations for CuraSimplify3DSlic3r and PrusaSlicer 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.

Slic3r Printing Recommendations

These basic 3D printing settings recommendations for beginners were tested in Slic3r 1.3.0 software. Test models were printed on Ultimaker 2, Creality Ender 3, Creality Cr-10S pro v2, Anycubic I3 Mega, Anycubic I3 MegaS, Anycubic Vyper with PLA and PetG filaments. 


Note:

- You can upscale your 3D printing models. Downscaling is not recommended - it can make smaller parts of the model unprintable, distort the model’s level of detail and result in assembly issues. 

- All connectors should be printed at 100% Infill.

- When printing Lock connectors, we recommend setting the “Brim width” parameter to 0 in the "Skirt and Brim" print settings. In that way, the Locks will be 3D printed with a Skirt only.

Extrusion width 

You can try setting all parameters in this section, except the First layer, to values between 0.75% of your nozzle diameter and 1.25% of your nozzle diameter. Adjusting them will help you work out the optimal parameters for the best quality for your print. As for the First layer, you can set it to 150% of the diameter of your nozzle for better adhesion to the build plate (for a nozzle with a diameter of 0.4 mm, the First layer extrusion width can be from 0.3 mm to 0.5 mm)
