The Paltus-class submarine is a Russian special purpose mini-submarine of project 1851.1. Two boats were completed – AS-21 and AS-35 as a follow up of the single “X-Ray”-class boat AS-23 (Project 1851).
The surface displacement is approximately 300 tons with a length of 98 feet (30 m). The propulsion comes from nuclear power with the operating depth in excess of 3,800 feet (1,200 m). The designer, according to Polmar was Sergei Bavilin who had designed the earlier diesel electric Project 865/Piranya small submarine of similar dimensions

I made this model a while back. It was lying around in my hard drives, so i’ve given it a quick update and tidying to be a 3d printable project. Here it is, continue reading for more images and STL files.
German engineers were able to create a number of interesting mini-submarine projects. One of them was a kind of crossing a submarine with a tank. This very interesting example was the ultra-small amphibious submarine “Seeteufel” (translated from German as “monkfish”) with a caterpillar mover. This boat was intended both for independent carrying out torpedo attacks and for delivering small groups of swimmers-saboteurs to the target of the attack.
Seeteufel was a rather unusual, even amazing, development. This “pocket” submarine was supposed to feel at home on the water surface, under water, and on land. This combat apparatus, as if descended from the pages of books by the famous science fiction writer Jules Verne. This boat attracted special attention and sympathy from the sabotage detachment “K” specially created in the German fleet. Members of this squad are accustomed to evaluate military equipment from the point of view of its combat use behind the front line of the enemy, so they could not but like this machine.
Turtle (also called American Turtle) was the world’s first submersible vessel with a documented record of use in combat. It was built in 1775 by American David Bushnell as a means of attaching explosive charges to ships in a harbor, for use against Royal Navy vessels occupying American harbors during the American Revolutionary War.

The SP-350 Denise, famous as the “Diving saucer” (Soucoupe plongeante), is a small submarine designed to hold two people, and is capable of exploring depths of up to 400 metres (1,300 ft). It was invented by Jacques-Yves Cousteau and engineer Jean Mollard at the French Centre for Undersea Research. It was built in the year 1959 and usually operated from Cousteau’s ship, the Calypso.

The Type 209 is a class of diesel-electricattack submarine developed exclusively for export by Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft of Germany. The original variant (Type 209/1100) was designed in the late 1960s. The class is exclusively designed for export market. Despite not being operated by the German Navy, five variants of the class (209/1100, 209/1200, 209/1300, 209/1400 and 209/1500) have been successfully exported to 13 countries, with 61 submarines being built and commissioned between 1971 and 2008.

Here is a cute robot vacuum mini. Its mini, so printer friendly. Can be produced with most printers in one piece. Easy to assemble and produce by using reasonably priced standard parts. Dowload and enjoy.
Two 50mm radial fans are used as the suction motors, the drive motors are standard DC toy motors which can be found very easily on the web.
It is the design that won me a 3rd prize in a national design competition. This is a new and improved version of Mırmır, which is modified to be a scaled down 3d printable model-toy. It can be push uperated or can be made as a RC car. It has a DC drive motor, ample space for a steering mini servo, independent rubber suspension both at the front and rear. It is a small and funny project.
