FDM test prints our out, and for update

Xtian Tormes finished some prototypes of the FDM models of the ships. 

FDM is the most common 3D printer found in the market. Creality Ender 3 variants. Right now there is not much of a "Problem" with the current licensing of Traveller ships... of course if work in IT and in industries where IP can be closed off (see the Open Gaming debacle) then these ships and this setting is designed with the intent that we don't have to worry about it. For IT, there is Red Hat closing their access, VMware ending perpetual licenses, Nintendo suing Emulator Yuzu, the right to repair, Microsoft INVASIVE telemetry, W10 end of life, etc... sooo many many reasons not to trust, and that - trust can with Transparency. 

Open source - from Open Office and GIMP and Blender, got me to where I am now. So making the ships CC-BY-SA  - its not going to be a success - Its considered "off brand" of course there are those of us who just care about utility and value.
