    This will be a 3D printed boat!

    I will be setting up my files and 3D printing this boat using PLA!

    I have one bottom hull section completed.

    The filament that I am using is Dremel "Translucent White" this is the only Dremel filament that I have left and I have two rolls that I want to use up. I did a sample piece and gave it a shot of Rd Oxide primer and it will take painting very well. As I have noted in a different blog about the increase for Dremel White PLA from $23.00 to $62.00 there is no way I am going to pay that much, therefore I will be using up what have left of there product on this project!

      As I stated above, I did give a sample printed piece using the Dremel translucent white PLA a coat of red oxide primer!

      What you see is just one coat. I think the boat will finish out OK using the translucent PLA.

        I recall mention of Dremel embedding a chip inside the filament reels that needs to be detected by the machine in order for it it to print and it can be bypassed by leaving an empty reel inside the printer.

        Then drill a small hole in the printers case to feed filament in from outside, which also permits the use of larger 1kg reels.

          Hi Andy,

          Yes, I do know about the chip on there new DIGILAB series printers. On my old 3D40 machine it did not have that detection system and I did drill a hole in the door to be able to run off brand PLA filaments.

            The model itself looks nice but the superstructure at the bow is shaped incorrectly, it should taper to a point,like this model-

              Thanks, Andy!

              I do appreciate all your advice and help aides. My whole build and the blog just seems to have gotten off on the wrong foot! (My Fault) I failed to do the proper research before I even started. Named the boat incorrectly, and the files are not the exact HMS Holland-1!

              I am going to withdraw from this build blog, but I am going to finish the boat as is, even though it is not a true scaled down model of the full scale HMS Holland-1! It will be close enough scale for me. One of the other reasons I am building this boat is because of it's size which will be a great swimming pool runner for me!

              Thanks again for all the advice and help!:-))

                No, Rob. Continue the commentary and pictures. There are grains of knowledge in every thoughtful post. And you convey a lot of good dope. You've acknowledged the scale shortcomings, that does not diminish, in the least, the value of lessons learned of the engineering involved. Keep plugging away and writing it all up.

                  I Have a good portion of the bottom hull completed, and the printer is finishing up the last piece of the stern section.

                      I just got off on the wrong foot with this Holland build. Getting mixed up with the photo and the name of the boat just messed up the whole build right off the bat! I think I am back in sink now, and I will plow on with the build using the HMS HOLLAND l which is the correct boat! (I blame this issue on the "Old Age" factor)

                        I started out printing the Holland at 88.35% because of two sections that where at 190.00 mm on the "Z" axis. My Dremel only went to 170.00. so, I printed the entire bottom hull sections at 88.35%! The drive motor arrived, and I found that it was to big for the motor bracket in the hull. So I had to find a way to cut the two 190.00 section into two pieces so that I could build this boat at 100%!

                        Well, I learned that Simplfy3D has the means to make this split happen! I do not want to go into the details as to this came about other than to say it worked. So now I can build this boat to the 100% scale that it should be!

                        The WTC cylinder on this build will be 90mm outside and 80mm inside, and it fits perfect inside the hull.

                        The motor that I mentioned above is a Marin RC 7.4 volt 16800 RPM CW/CCW water proof motor. It has been used as underwater thruster motors, but it will be a perfect fit for the Holland!

                          I have a question!

                          I am planning on using a 2.4ghz radio system on my Holland build. I know that somewhere on Nautilus Drydocks forum, the instructions for how to do the receiver antenna installation for the 2.4 was listed.

                          Is it possible for someone to post up that location? This will be my first time installing this type system and I am not sure of the materials required for the wiring of the 2.4 antenna.

                          Thanks in advance for any advice and help!

                            I believe this is the document you’re referring to:

                              Thank you, Nate,

                              That is the one I was looking for. Not sure if I am going to go this route, but if I do, I certainly have some great instructions on how to modify 2.4ghz antenna!

                              Thanks again for the help!:-))

                              Naye: If you are still out there. Is this the correct coax cable?
