8/20/2015 Update

I have disassembled the parts to glue the last few bits on before starting prep for painting.
I have also started to design a base for this thing.
I wanted to do something difficult that I didn't know how to do. So i want to make it out of natural stone, but have moving parts and fasteners. Below is a quick concept i whipped up to see if it would be cool or not. I am not happy with the support arms and will be redoing them. I also want to put a slip ring in the base so it can have electricity AND spin. I also want to design some kind of lit conduit that can light red, like a couple tubes you can see in the next generation TV series. I want these tubes to conceal the wires as well as look like they are carrying the warp energy out of the core, perhaps to some nacelles.

here is the current first concept of the base.

I want to build this model. It looks amazing.

I am slogging through the last parts to be printed for the warp core so that i can prep and paint all the parts at the same time.
keep an eye on the web cam to see what i am currently printing, its mostly the largest pieces of the project.

Back up and running

I have the printer unpacked now here in austin texas. I have resumed printing pieces for the warp core and will continue to post as I begin the finishing and painting of the pieces over the coming weeks.
