Wing parts seem tolo large to print on 3D printer

I have recently purchased the Falcon and successfully printed the fuselage. However, the wing parts, seem too large to print on my Prusa i3 with a bed of 200 x 200 x 190mm…

The print height dimension must be at least 250mm.
In your case the printing height is 190mm? If yes, please confirm and I will make a modification for you.

I can confirm my print height is 190mm….
If you can make that modification I would be most grateful…

Please download the modification here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1smIS6mSYt5k8iYg06uU6Sz-c0TSI7QKF
I separated the parts which are higher than 190mm into 2: wing_part_5 and wing_aileron
Try to print them and then use glue or lighter to combine.
Please make sure the length of the combinations are not changed too much.

I also have bought the Falcon to be printed with my Malyan M150 from HobbyKing. M150 meant the maximum 150 mm height for a safe print.
3DLabPrint limits the max height of their parts to +/- 150 mm with good reasons 😉
If you are to publish new STL’s, may I hardly suggest you to follow 3DLabPrint good habit: stay at 150 mm height, or very very near (<155 mm).
For myself, I don’t care as I also own a Tronxy X5S able to print up to 330x330x400 mm ;9
But this one use more energy to heat the bed… less efficient for smaller prints 🙁27.7.18 at 10:58 #35931
Hi Jean, thank you for your suggestion.
I will keep it in mind for the next project.

Playing a little with Simplify3D, I found that you can easy print wing_part_5 by rotating it X=180° and Z=45° , so it will print in the diagonal 😉
You will be more in trouble with the Wing_aileron (part 10) as if you can rotate it, there will remain to less surface contact with the bed for a good adhesion 🙁
This part 10 really needs to be sliced!
I can’t see the good reason to slice the first wing parts into part 5, 6 and 9.
One better solution has been to fuse part 5 and lower part of 9, then part 6 with upper part of 9. That also means less bolt/nut and of course…. grams and money 😛27.7.18 at 11:11 #35933
Thanks very much for your quick solution to this problem…

No problem David, please ask if you need something else.
@Jean: the fact that my printer bed size is not large enough then I have to slice that way. I have a bigger one now 😉27.7.18 at 12:45 #35936
I understand now…. that you was using a delta kossel: small feet, long legs 😀27.7.18 at 13:04 #35937
Haha yes, you are really a 3D printing expert.
By the way, as you said some wing parts can be rotated 90 degree to print. That probably strengthens the wing, so please have a try.
Thank you for buying my project.05.8.18 at 14:20 #36475Jean-Marc VailleParticipant
I also have a size problem with the Wing-ailerons(211.8mm)
I print on a Prusa and the maximum height is 200 mm.
Thank you for your help.

@Jean dear, please try to use the modification I gave to David above. Hope your problem will be solved.
