With everyone being hyper about the Force Awakens, it is only natural to see fan-made art based on the Star Wars Universe. Recently, a Star Wars fan created a 3-D Printed Star Destroyer, and might we say that it looks awesome.
Doing a bit of research, we have come to understand that the Star Destroyer is probably considered the biggest ship in the Star Wars Universe. We are talking about ships here, so that takes the Death Star and the Starkiller out of the equation.
Being the proud heritor of the Executor, Vader’s flagship and the biggest ship ever deployed on the battlefield, the Executor’s look alike can easily handle even the most advanced rebel warship.
Unfortunately, we are far from building such a dreadnought, but we are still capable of constructing replicas after the badass warship. This was the case of the fan who managed to piece together a big replica of the Star Destroyer.
In order to make this outstanding battleship, the Star Wars enthusiast used a PowerSpec 3D Pro printer. We weren’t able to print out the whole starship, but rather printed put individual pieces which he then glued together using hot glue.
We are not surprised to see that something as awesome as this comes out of a 3D printer. If we take a look around, we see that ever since that the concept was launched, virtually every domain adopted this novel printer.
Recently, a team of medical researchers announced that they were able to print out an entire human heart using harvested heart cells. Even NASA managed to make use of the printer. The space agency designed a whole new rocket engine using nothing but printed parts. According to NASA, the new engine is outstanding and it won’t be long until we see entire spaceships built using the 3D printing technology.
Getting back to the Star Destroyer, the avid Star Wars fan hasn’t made any statement regarding how much time he spent glueing together the individual pieces. But taking a closer look at the Star Destroyer’s replica, one would deduce that it took a lot of work. And the final product looks astounding.
Unfortunately, although the fan wanted to construct a real-life replica after the Acclamator-class battleship, due to copyright infringements he could not see his plans all the way to the finish line.
So, despite the fact that the ship looks like and feels like a Star Destroyer, it’s not actually one, but rather the artist’s take on the original concept.
