The UD-4L Cheyenne Dropship is a versatile landing combat spacecraft from the ‘Alien’ movie series primarily used during the United States Colonial Marine Corps operations. It entered into service at the end of the Tientsin conflict when an all-purpose light aerospace shuttle with huge carrying capacity was requested. The Dropship is capable of delivering troops and equipment to unprepared sites, relying on its impressive power and its ability to take off vertically. The spacecraft is also equipped with powerful weapons bays that fold out on extended pylons so that UD-4L can also be used as a gunship during attacks.


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

FDM version features:
- Contain 53 parts;
- Assembly kit includes locks. One part of  Lock (53_Ge_lock_10H_x18) needs to be printed 18 times;
- Two variants of cockpit - a solid one and a cockpit with insertable glass designed to be printed with transparent filament;
- High-poly cockpit;
- Folding front wings with rockets;
- Folding central wings with powerful weapon bays;
- Opening cargo door to deliver the M113 armoured personnel carrier;
- Landing gear to display the dropship standing;
- Covers to replace the landing gear to depict the dropship in-flight;
- All parts are divided in such a way that you will print them with the smallest number of support structures.

DLP/SLA/SLS version features:
- Same as FDM but smaller, also made as 14 parts;

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 CURA 3.5.1Simplify3D or Slic3r Software.

There are 53 parts for FFF/FDM version, 14 parts for DLP/SLA/SLS.

Scale: UD-4L actual length is 25180 mm. The model’s chosen scale is 1/60 for the FDM version and 1/100 for the DLP/SL/SLS versions.

FFF/FDM version dimensions:
A printed model with wings is 136 mm tall, 276 mm wide, 420 mm deep;
A printed model without wings is 95 mm tall, 197 mm wide, 420 mm deep.

DLP/SLA/SLS version dimensions:
A printed model with wings is 82 mm tall, 166 mm wide, 252 mm deep;
A printed model without wings is 57 mm tall, 118 mm wide, 252 mm deep.
- Has few details, to keep printing costs down.


- STL files of UD-4L Cheyenne Dropship 3D Model for 3D printing which consist of 67 parts;
- 2 versions of files for this model for FFF/FDM, DLP/SLA/SLS;
- High-poly detailed model of UD-4L Cheyenne Dropship;
- Detailed settings that we provide for Cura 3.5.1, Simplify3D and Slic3r for the best print;
