Armed Freighter

Armed Freighter

STL (3D Model)

This is one of my early models and the first that is not originally intended for the Star Frontiers RPG.  I tackled this at the request of a friend.  He posted the deck plans for a ship as part of a Free Map Friday endeavor back when Google+ was still new.  You can now find that map in the Free Downloads section on the DWD Studios website.  When he posted it, it came with a question: "I wonder what this would look like in 3D? I wonder if any of my modeling friends want to take a crack at it?" So I did and this model is the result.

It was modeled at 1/1000th scale (1mm = 1m) based on the deck plans and ship outline that Bill posted.  Printed at that size, it stands 62.3mm (2.45") tall with a 54.6mm (2.15") wingspan.  Tested on both FDM an SLA printers at full and half size.

Here's an image of the Armed freighter printed at full size on my SLA printer.  The model file provided has a smoother surface that than one I originally used for this print.

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.
