    Type XXIII submarine: That was a complicated one.....the cable pull mechanism of the periscope. The periscope was raised and lowered by a cable winch in the control room. The cable ran over various pulleys to the periscope. Intricate arrangement under the roof of the conning tower.

    Conning tower. Hatch done, next attack periscope. There are plenty photos but all look differet. The XXIII plans help a little bit and I found some blurry cross sections. So what I show here is my best guess approxiamtion.

    Thanks very much for posting the step by step progress on your CAD and 3D printed model interior. The level of research and effort that has gone into this project si very impressive.

    Indeed one of the thing's of I've found very satisfying with CAD work is translating drawings, photos and often a bit of guesswork into a 3 dimensional model. As you note this often this takes a few iterations to get it right.

    Out of curiosity what CAD software are you using?

    Designing the hatches for my Txpe XXIII submarine project. Even with blueprints one can spend a few evenings to get them right...

    Still designing the Type XXIII interior. Putting the finishing touches on the ventilation ducts and the ventilation manifold for the batteries. During charging the batteries produced hydrogen that had to be removed by the ventilation system. So there were four tubes running above the battery cells that collected the hydrogen though tiny tubes that were connected to the collection tubes. Tedious work....

    Amazing work. The many hours put into the CAD model really shows. Can’t wait to see more.

And as I started up the 3D printer for the diorama project, I made a quick & dirty test print of the torpedo tubes. No optimization, just through the slicer and printed. I'm very pleased with the first result and with a little bit of optimization, I'm confident the end result will be good...

    DrSchmidt!

    Not only is your CAD work total perfection! Your 3D Printing is superb! With all the detail in your project your supports would have to be right on the mark. May I ask what 3D Printer and the slicing software you are using? Amazing work you are doing. Tom asked a great question! It must take you hours to figure out the orientation on the print bed!? Very impressed with your work!!!
