      Nice work! It will be interesting to see what your final design will be!

          I see you have the same defect that I have on the back of the canopy. I don't think that should not be there?

            Not a problem for me! These minor subtle defects are all part of the process, and quite frankly add to the build! I have seen several different ideas for the Hydra Sub in a lot of different photos! If that minor defect is a bother you can fill it with a little bondo!

            3D printing to me is not perfection! And I personally like to see the imperfection of the process in all my pieces! In my eyes! 3D printing itself is an art form, and it's process is to be enjoyed!

            This just MY opinion!!

              Today I was able to get the upper and lower hull sections glued up. I am as far as I want to go with that portion of the project, now comes the powered pod work as well as the control surface work, and to fabricate a WTC to house all the electronics!

                Rob, it looks like the Hydro build is really coming along. I am curious as to what layer height you were using when printing your sub. Also, were the original STL files configured so the seam between each hull section is vertical as opposed to running horizontally? I am wondering about fitment when binding the hull pieces together. Really looking forward to seeing what you do with the thrusters. Great job!

                  Not sure what your reference meant as to the seams!? The hull itself splits at the waterline, and the layup on all my pieces are vertical! 0.2 mm was my resolution, which Bob Martin (Nautilus Drydock) is what he used on his sample build!

                  My layups are as you see them on the bench! I am using my new Dremel 3D40 Flex machine on default, and I use simplify 3D! My filament of choice is the new Dremel white PLA! Really works great with this machine! Hope this helps!

                  I am working on 2 other 3D printed subs right know, plus trying to finish up the 1:77 Nautilus! So I am working a little on each one which makes progress as to posting a little slower! There will be more to come!
