To mark its fifth anniversary, Liverpool MakeFest is setting off to break a world record for the largest collaborative 3D printed object – in this case, a rocket to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landings.
The rocket, named Eagle, will need over 500 individual parts of the tubular midsection to be printed by volunteers (ie. you folks) and then sent to the venue in time for the main event on Saturday 29 June 2019.
Liverpool MakeFest has teamed up with the good people at Create Education and Ultimaker, and have prepared a simple STL file for download, and to be printed in any filament you fancy, before you post it off, or deliver it yourself on the day (tickets are free, here).

The event itself is really worth a look for a day out, especially if you have some youngsters in tow, with Liverpool easily one of the country’s most creative cities.
