UPF Fighter MK1 Collection

UPF Fighter MK1 Collection

STL (3D Model)

This is a collection of three different variations of the same fighter model optimized for different printers and print orientations.  

  • UPFFighter-MK1.stl - This is the original model I created of the fighter pictured on the game counter.  It was designed for printing on a high resolution SLA printer.  This model is designed to be printed upright as there are features on both the top and bottom of the ship (i.e. it's not flat).
  • UPFFighter-MK1-FDM.stl - This is a variation on the original model that is better suited for printing on an FDM printer although if you like the changes, there is no reason you couldn't print this on an SLA printer as well.  The main changes are that the rudder-like feature, wings, and engine cone have been thickened to account for the 0.4-0.5mm nozzle of an FDM printer.  This model is designed to be printed upright like the first model.
  • UPFFighter-MK1-FDM-flat.stl - This model is almost identical to the previous model but had been modified to be printed lying flat on the print bed instead of standing straight up.  The bottom of the model has been flatened to accomodate this print orientation.

Each model is about 11mm long with a wingspan of 10mm.  If that feels a little too small, they print really well enlarged up to 200%, at which point they are almost as large as the Assault Scout miniatures.

Here's an image of the first model printed with an SLA printer with a penny for scale.  The model still has the printing supports attached.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
