Bathtub U-Boat by Skimbal

Skimbal is easily one of the most popular designers on Thingiverse.  His designs tend to be big, complex, multi-part prints that form seriously epic objects.  His Gothic Cathedral Play Set, challenge winning Rubber Band Gear Mechanism, or Christmas Lego Men of Kansas City are must-see designs.  To get an idea of the scale of Skimbal’s devotion – this nine-piece submarine print would probably take about 30 hours of printing.

One of the things I really like about this particular design is that it (again) pushes the limits of a MakerBot printer.  His Gothic Cathedral Play set has high unsupported arches and the submarine above is significantly larger than the build area of a Cupcake.  Skimbal has once again proved that with a 3D printer you are not limited by anything except your imagination.
