The last act has begun. Since one week I transfer the parts into the flat - into CorelDRAW, to be exact. But first a look at the grand finale:
Command Module Service Arm
From the perspective of the paper astronauts on their historic way to the Columbia. After so much emotion now to the numbers:
Instead of the feared 50,000 there are actually only 42,619 parts. So room enough for a Bismarck alongside.
For those who want to get a more detailed view, I uploaded a 3D-PDF of Level 200. Please save it locally with a right click, as 3D-PDFs don't work in the browser, and then open it with Acrobat. You may have to trust the document (just do it hehe), then click on the question mark in the upper left corner. In the 3D tool area use 'rotate horizontally', otherwise it's a bit tedious, and show the model hierarchy - there you can navigate to any part, and show/hide parts or groups.
The transfer to CorelDRAW will take a while - but I should make until the end of June. I'll contact the print shop as soon as the end is reasonably foreseeable - I guess in April/May. Due to my experience with the Crawler I know halfway what to look out for, but the LUT is extremely extensive and it pays off to optimize it.
