This thread will be used to document my progress of 3D printing the main ryders and ships of the Sunrider universe. I will try to update this post from time to time to keep it up to date with my current progress.
While I would like to make all ryders and ships I have files for it will take a long while (and most likely be abandoned at some point before finishing them all). Here is the overall progress and priority so you have an idea of what and when things will be completed.
Started: (ordered by start date, % is rough estimate of completion) -Seraphim 20% -Blackjack 40% -Paladin 40% -Phoenix 20%
-Sunrider 10% (this one is massive) -Ryuvian Cruiser 30% -Alliance Cruiser 10% -Legion 5%
Priority: (what I'm likely to take next) Nightmare Liberty Nightmare Ascended
Alliance Battleship PACT Carrier The Sharr' Lac
Progress on the ryders will be a lot faster as I finish some because they share a lot of parts (for example, the Nightmare and Seraphim only differs in their weapons and shoulder mounts).

I'm printing with PLA (filament) on a Prusa Mini. The parts in the pictures are 1:100 scale to go with my (very limited) Gundam collection. Here they are with a 1:100 Unicorn Gundam and a human pilot.
The Unicorn is a pretty big mobile suit, especially in destroy mode. Here it is with the ryders to scale from my computer.
As you might see I have downloaded the shared game assets and use them as a starting point. (This project would have been almost impossible without them) In order to prepare the files for printing I use the free 3D software Blender. Here is a screen shoot of some of my layout.
More info to come. If there is anything in particular you are interested in you can tell me here or on Discord.
