      More progress on the torpedo tubes. As they were capable of setting off both torpedos and mines, there were tons of valves, interlocks, hoses, and whatnot.....redesigning all this just from photos is kinda challenging.

            Amazing......
            If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

              I guess I'm 99% through with the tow torpedo tubes for the XXIII boat. Will b interesting priniting these....next are the air tanks for the expulsion and the asscoiated valves.

                The two torpedo tubes of the Type XXIII with the ai flasks and the firing valves. One gets an idea how tiny that space was....

                  Progress on the interior design for my 1:35 Bronco Type XXIII. Batteries done and roughly positioned in the battery room. Still lots to do till I start printing the real thing. As especially the plumbing is dependent on every room, I decideded to get the CAD model 99% done befor converting this thing into reality. Well, meanwhile I prep my RC subs and work on a Millennium Falcon diorama ;-)

                    Exceptional work Herr Doktor...
                    your torpedo tube detail is incredible.

                    Have you got a CAD Model of a World War One German torpedo for my SM U-23?

                      You can get good information in the German Wikipedia artoicle about the G/7 torpedo (Google translate), The imerial navy actually developed the G/7 that was then adopted and improved for the Nazis. So you are fine with early, steam-powered G/7s....

                        Still drawing the interior of the boat, but the bulk of the job is done. I'm currently I'm building a Star Wars diorama but when I'm through with it, the XXIII is next. 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...

                          How are you orienting these on the print bed? I would be interested in seeing how you did you supports.

                              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!!!

                                Really nothing special....Elegoo Mars, Anycubic ABS-Like resin, and Chitubox with standard settings. For the bove prints I let Chitubox do all the supports without any editing.
