The USS Thresher, a nuclear-powered submarine of the United States Navy, stands as a testament to the bravery and dedication of those who serve in defense of their country’s freedom. Commissioned in 1961, this remarkable vessel was not only a technological marvel of its time but also an embodiment of the unwavering commitment of its crew. Though tragedy struck on April 10, 1963, resulting in the loss of the USS Thresher and all 129 crew members, it remains an indelible part of naval history and a poignant reminder of the sacrifices made to ensure our security.Read More
A Remarkable Monument of Ancient Egypt
The Great Pyramid of Giza is one of the most impressive architectural marvels of the ancient world. Located on the outskirts of Cairo, Egypt, the Great Pyramid is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis. It is believed to have been constructed over a period of 20 years, from around 2580 to 2560 BCE, during the reign of the pharaoh Khufu. This incredible monument stands as a testament to the advanced engineering and architectural skills of the ancient Egyptians.
The Great Pyramid of Giza is a massive structure, standing at a height of 147 meters and covering an area of over 5 hectares. It was constructed using an estimated 2.3 million stone blocks, each weighing an average of 2.5 tons. The precision with which these blocks were cut and placed is astounding, with the joints between them so precise that a sheet of paper cannot fit between them. The fact that the structure has survived for over 4,500 years, despite numerous earthquakes and other natural disasters, is a testament to the quality of the construction.Read More Pages: 1 2
Nature has been perfecting its designs for millions of years. From the wings of a bird to the fins of a fish, the natural world is a treasure trove of solutions to problems that humans face. Biomimicry is the process of using nature’s designs, patterns, and strategies to create innovative solutions to complex human problems. It is a rapidly growing field that is transforming the way we approach innovation and design.
Biomimicry is not a new concept. Humans have been inspired by nature for centuries, from the invention of the airplane to the development of Velcro. However, biomimicry as a formalized discipline is relatively recent. It was first coined by Janine Benyus in her 1997 book, Biomimicry: Innovation Inspired by Nature. The book sparked a movement, and today, biomimicry is being used to develop everything from more efficient buildings to new medical technologies.

Here you can find a 3d printable type IX submarine with complete interior details. First of all, what were they?
Type IX submarines were a class of German U-boats that served during World War II. Designed primarily for long-range missions in the Atlantic Ocean, these submarines were some of the most successful and versatile vessels in the German Navy.
The Type IX submarines were built in three different variants, the first of which was the Type IXA. This variant had a length of 76.5 meters and could reach a maximum speed of 18.2 knots when surfaced and 7.7 knots when submerged. It had a range of 12,000 nautical miles and could carry up to 22 torpedoes.

The Dolphin class (Hebrew: הצוללות מסדרת דולפין) is a diesel-electric submarine developed in Israel and constructed by Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft AG (HDW) in Kiel, Germany, for the Israeli Navy. The first boats of the class were based on the export-only German 209-class submarines, but modified and enlarged. The Dolphin 1 sub-class is slightly larger than the German NavyType 212 in length and displacement. The three newer air-independent propulsion (AIP) equipped boats are similar to the Type 212 vessels in underwater endurance, but are 12 metres (39 ft) longer, nearly 500 tonnes heavier in submerged displacement and have a larger crew than either the Type 212 or the Type 214. More info on Wikipedia.
This is a set of 3d models for 3d printing both Dolphin I and II submarines.

Type XXI submarines were a class of German diesel–electric Elektroboot (German: “electric boat”) submarines designed during the Second World War. One hundred and eighteen were completed, with four being combat-ready. During the war only two were put into active service and went on patrols, but these were not used in combat.
They were the first submarines designed to operate primarily submerged, rather than spending most of their time as surface ships that could submerge for brief periods as a means of escaping detection. They incorporated many batteries to increase the time they could spend submerged, to as much as several days, and they only needed to surface to periscope depth for recharging via a snorkel. The design included many general improvements as well: much greater underwater speed by an improved hull design, greatly improved diving times, power-assisted torpedo reloading and greatly improved crew accommodations. However, the design was also flawed in many ways, with the submarines being mechanically unreliable and vulnerable to combat damage. The Type XXI submarines were also rushed into production before design work was complete, and the inexperienced facilities which constructed the boats were unable to meet necessary quality standards.

This is a 3d printable model of the XXI class subs.

Laika class Russian submarines, also known as the “puppy” class, are a curious bunch. They may not be the most advanced or powerful submarines in the Russian fleet, but they sure do have personality. Here are a few things you might not know about the Laika class:
First of all, the name “Laika” comes from the famous Russian space dog who was the first animal to orbit the Earth. It’s a fitting name, because the Laika class submarines are known for their small size and agility. They may not have the same firepower as some of the larger Russian subs, but they can slip in and out of tight spaces with ease.

Ladies and gentlemen, hold onto your periscopes, because we’ve got a real treat for you today. Our website owner here has made a 3D model of the infamous Red October submarine. Yes, you heard that right. The submarine that almost started World War III, but with a funny twist.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Why on earth would someone make a 3D model of a Russian submarine that doesn’t even exist?” Well, dear website visitors, I’ll tell you why. It’s because our website owner here has a serious obsession with all things submarine-related. And who can blame him? Submarines are basically like underwater spaceships, and who wouldn’t want to make a model of that? Before the model, lets talk about the movie first.
In 1990, Hollywood brought us the classic Soviet submarine thriller, “The Hunt for Red October.” Starring Sean Connery as a Russian submarine captain and Alec Baldwin as a CIA analyst, the film was a gripping Cold War tale of espionage and intrigue. But let’s be honest, it was also pretty darn funny.
For starters, the accents in this movie are absolutely hilarious. Sean Connery, a Scotsman, plays a Russian submarine captain who speaks English with a thick Scottish brogue. Meanwhile, Baldwin, an American, tries to sound like a Bostonian CIA analyst. The result is a lot of “Yahd” and “Cah” and “Pahked Cahs” that will have you giggling like a school kid.
But it’s not just the accents that make “The Hunt for Red October” such a comedic masterpiece. The film also has some truly ridiculous plot points. For example, at one point, the Russian submarine actually hides itself in the underwater canyons of the Atlantic Ocean. Because apparently, submarines can just disappear in a few hundred feet of water, no problem.
