Here they are, in all their glory: The prototypes from the Titan Marine vehicles.
These are the first wave of the RUM-V vehicles, and I can't say how truly happy I am with how everything fits up.
Digital is one thing. Having it in your hands is another. I guess that's why this whole wacky 3d-printing thing is catching on with all the cool kids, eh?
Anyway, here's the remainder of the pics of the printed prototypes. It's a monster of an update, so if you have dial-up internet access, you're probably going to want to take a jog or something and come back later when the pics load.
Note that the rough "nubs" that look like rivets are the remainders of the trellis-like support structures formed via the printing process. They clean off easily (thank God) with a hobby knife and some sandpaper.
Here's a series of shots showing the support structure nubs. They came off easily, without a hitch.
The affect looks great on the final model.

As you can see, he puts out beautiful work. Send him a request for a quote, and tell him I said, "hi."
