Modular Multipart Design
This model contains 22 separate pieces that are all designed to make for a quicker and easier printing, sanding, and/or painting experience.
One reason why I design my models to be separated by their natural components/seams is that this allows one to skip the tedious process of glueing pieces together that may have just been lazily sliced in half, quarters, etc.. I designed this model to ensure that each piece could be printed and worked on separately before assembly and glue is involved. This cuts down vastly on print/sanding/painting time overall, as one is able to work on individual pieces while others are printing. Additionally if you screw up a piece during any part of the process, you only have to redo that single piece rather than having to reprint a majority of it.
All the pieces fit together for a secure finished model. Additionally, there are some alignment pegs included to further secure the final print. All these interlocking pieces have had some tolerances introduced to ensure that every piece easily but securely slide together without hours of tedious sanding.

All my models are designed with a focus on hidden seams, ease of assembly, little to no support printing, and accuracy in mind.
If you need any help with the printing or building process, or you just have a prop you would like to see me do, feel free to email me.
