Meticulous 3D Printed RC Model of the Titanic

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Tue Jun 21, 2016 9:10 am

Of all the disastrous events in US history, perhaps none fascinate people the way the Titanic does. The 1997 multiple-record-breaking movie certainly had something to do with the national obsession; as a middle-schooler, I saw it in the theater at least three times, sobbing dutifully each time before going off to Steak ‘n Shake. The combination of romance and tragedy drew people in like a magnet, but Kate and Leo didn’t start the Titanic frenzy. The first films about the disaster were made almost immediately, proving that Hollywood’s rather morbid tendency to capitalize on ripped-from-the-headlines tragedies is nothing new.

Since the sinking of the ship and resulting deaths of over 1,500 people, there have been hundreds of movies, television episodes, songs, poems, and books inspired by the Titanic, and memorabilia related to the ship has raked in millions of dollars. There have also been countless models of the so-called “unsinkable” ship built, with one of the most recent – and coolest – created by model designer Bernard Dohnt.

Last year, Dohnt caught our attention with his 3D printed RC replica of an Armidale-class patrol boat (the files for which are now available for download). At the time, he had several other projects in the works, and his most ambitious, an RC Titanic, is now almost complete. The ship, printed at a scale of 1:72, is nearly four meters (13 feet) long and currently consists of over 150 3D printed pieces. Once the model is completed and fully detailed, Dohnt estimates that the final part count will be over 2,000.
