    Thank You Very Much for the confirmation. Any pictures of an assembled typhoon of that spec.?

      I just received the files late last night. I'm going to assemble them in CAD over the next day or so and begin the (long) process of printing the prototype. I anticipate that this will likely take around a week to complete. She's a big boat!

          Bob, I Don't know if you have addressed this elsewhere. What printer do you use and what material? Has anyone used a epoxy printer for sub hulls?

              Are you talking about Resin 3D printers?

                Bob, not necessarily. Just wondering what PLA printer you are using and having success. If you are using epoxy that would be interesting as well but I think it might be too brittle.

                    Yes Resin printers can print boat and Sub hulls. Please note you need a mid and large 3D resin printer to do it right. A few people on ebay are selling whole RC subs printed in Resin. It looks like someone in China bought a Engel 212A Model Submarine from Germnay and had it shipped to China and when they got it, they laser scanned it and scanned it other ways to make a Printable model and printed it in resin to sell. Here is one of the sellers:

ID:	142406 I just got a Delta Wasp and I'm loving it! narrow, but tall... perfect for RC subs. I have the new Typhoon printing away on it now. That is going to be a GORGEOUS boat!

                        • Awesome, I just ordered a Prusa 3S. Let me know when you sell the Typhoon plans.

                              • Making a mold is definitely on my mind. I think this would be a good seller. I'd have to re-print the stern and bow sections to make them more appropriate for molding, split at the same height so that I wouldn't have to mess with a parting board. In order to get all those awesome deck details, I'd want to make a rubber hardbacked tool.

                                Thinking, thinking...
