    THE ARCHITECTURE OF 3D PRINTING - 07 STL EXPORT FROM REVIT

    @SandervG - I usually export in binary - never questioned this system since it was never really explained, from other software i control the number of polygonson export, but Revit does not have this option -- buhu!

    Ultimaker S5 build size

    Hello, I gave up trying to print it flat, and went for the obvious solution and printed it standing with pva added just touching the build plate, oh well, lost like 12 hours but rather have a success than insist on it working another way. Thanks for the useful tips.

    The idea is not to. I also switched to single extrussion - and it is weird because if you measure the glas plate you have 270 😿😿😿

    Anyone know how to hack the settings to be able to print this size? Thanks.

This series is my overview about the process and my work-around. Please feel free to comment and add.

Starting with revit 2018.3 Revit had the stl export as an add-in, however for those of you who work in older versions here is how you go about it. Go to the X (the blue and white one)- to open Autodesk app store Search for stl and the following apps will appear: You will want STL exporter version x – corresponding to the version of Revit you own. Remember it will export all elements in the view – if you don't want to see something – hide in view, and if you want to see 1 element of out 1000, you can isolate in view. In the export settings, pay attention to the units the export is done in, that will play a major role when scaling in cura –and it will help you see where you are at. For the site I will use meters. Also, it will be good to be constant, if you start with meters, you need to keep it like that for the whole project so you don't get confused. CURA 1. SCALE We all know in architecture scale plays a big role – therefore this is another aspect that you need to pay attention to. Taking alternative 1 into consideration and our topography/massing examples we know the following: Our example file in x-y is 87x88 m I have exported, as I said using meter units instead of mm And in cura we will see the following: Also, one can use online scale converters such as: http://www.scalemodelersworld.com/online-scale-converter-tool.html We therefore can conclude that our model is in 1:1000 scale at 100% in cura And 200% will take us to 1:500 However, when we talk about site plans, a 1:400 would be desired therefore a 250% scale in cura would be ideal, however the site is a little too big for that, so, we will go back to revit and readjust with the section box. But first, you can use the scale calculator to see what maximum sizes you would need. So rescaling the section box, you get to print in scale 1:400 and fit in the building plate. This is all for this post, I am slowly moving into the Cura tips and tricks (better say my tips and tricks) - as usual feel free to say what works for you, what is your work-around in your main software or in Revit. Also guys and girls, what are your expectations for the summer - should I keep posting or should I take a break until august? up to you! NEXT ON THIS SERIES: 08 SINGLE EXTRUSION

    I got them out - @SandervG? does it work for you?

    @SandervG - damn, I see what you guys did there - that was a hell of a loophole - specially on the formula 1 car - compliments to the designer/s 🙂 very smart solution!

Check these screen grabs from the unaltered revit model, and tell me – what’s wrong with this picture? So before you get started, might wanna have a look and see what you need: Looking at the floor plan, we need some kitchen furniture, bathroom furniture, stairs, tables and chairs. Seems easy enough. The bad thing is if you are in the beginning and you have none of these, it will be a little time consuming to create the sets. But before you get cracking, you might want to check what furniture you can use. The Sofa Ottoman is a good example of keep. However her big sister, has lovely little legs which will not do - 2 options, delete and lower the sofa, or delete the legs and extend the sofa with the height of the legs. I will go for option no.2 Same with the side table: Remove the legs, and turn it into a cube would be my next step. Might want to remove small objects like vases. And also, start making your own solid families, like chairs - the ones existing in revit forums are not suitable for printing in such a small scale, the single extrusion will not be able to handle it. Even if you have a dual extrusion, you have to make sure the minimum width is kept. Once you deal with all the furniture you want to illustrate, you go back to the same steps as before. Create a separate view, use a section box to enclose the area you want to print and then you have to make other decisions. So, you don't need to print to see the things you need to correct, importing the model into cura, will do just fine. In this case, i need to cut the model right under the floor and the decide if I want to keep the windows opaque or not. Personally I like to keep the opened, just the frame visible. First you play with the section box and adjust the level of the cut. Even though you deselected the windows and curtain walls in the Visibility and graphics, you might want to make sure you hide them manually as well. Although, sometimes, the exporters won't work as expected, so you might want to take the extra step and hide things from the exporter and or delete the glass in question from the family. This is the result in cura: You apply this mentality for the whole house. Making custom furniture for the kitchen, bathroom and any other elements. Also you might want to consider that for this process you might want to use a 0.1 layer height and print at a lower speed to increase the quality. The examples I will attach below are printed at a high speed 100 mm/s and 0.2 layer height - and as you can see the model had a little bit to suffer because of it. However all these models were printed using PVA and were printed on an UM3. The conclusion for me is that I have to tweek the settings a little bit more, a lower the speed. Also the fireplace printed but it came undone during the PVA wash so I have to revisit the reason why. The reason why the fireplace came undone was because it was a floating element. This is the first time I encounter something like this so what would you do in a scenario like this? When showing off architectural interiors first of all you only show the fixed furniture - kitchen, bathroom, and spaces like living rooms are usually unfurnished. However the question is, would you use furniture in these space? and if so, why? room 1.stl room 2.stl room 3.stl

    White, white or white?

    Do they now?! Gotta check!
  13. That's how I started a year ago - by placing it where everyone could see it. Good initiative!!

    @3dyantramstudio that will make an awesome print - don't go under 30 cm with it o.O

    White, white or white?

    @geert_2 we have to rely on manufacturers for colors, we get what they think we want - there won't be a supply before there is a demand - I guess this is the point of this post.
