  1. There we go, finished except from I printing out a palmtree and will add some grass.....Scale 1:75, model is 22cm in wide
  2. Still lots to do but this friday its deadline....to be continued....
  3. Your are right its under extruded, doesent matter much when it comeds to the floor because I will Tile them:)
  4. Pool area , windows, the basement I might skip. And then it’s time for textures. i have understood glue is a popular subject here. I would like try out superglue with spray accelerator
  5. When printing interior walls I keep them lower, otherwise it looks very narrow. idea later is to dress the floor with the blueprint floor layout drawing.
  6. I did as you said, thanx! The scale I don't know in this case or haven't checked, I print maximum size UM2 allows me to:)
  7. Hi guys! I am not completely new in 3D printing, bought my Ultimaker2 couple of years ago and its been unused for a year until now. What I learned is many things by that and one thing is that open PLA filament ageing! the xy steelarms needed to have some oil but then everything was up and spinning again. I printing scale model of a new built villa. 33 more to go! One of them I du in the maximum size printer allows me to. I just drop the parts in Cura and Print. Remember if you have several of parts to print make a reference frame to with each part. otherwise I noticed that scale not will be right. When I split models to create a bigger one I do "tung and groves" They then snap nice together without need glue. In the staircase it was tricky, but I did holes to put in a piece of filament string, remember do the hole slightly bigger:) Happy printing guys.
  8. typical case, a staircase for a scale model villa. a bit tricky to figure out the plan to assemble it but work fine.
  9. Thanx for clear answer and with this I think I can with some maths figure it out:) / Daniel
  10. I started of doing prototypes of furniture with mostly reason to understand the printing process and how to create files. Now I print models of house projects for developers showroom.
  11. I use Ultimaker 2, lets see if I upgrade one day. I bought more to be able to understand how to create the files more than do the actual print.
  12. When I start print it could for example say, 23 hours left to print, after one hours it says 42, and later on 51! How come? And How can you estimate?
  13. Hi, @SandervG and everybody:) I tried do the way I explained and with the model I at this moment do and most often are the case its not any problem at all, and yes its PLA I use. model I doing is houses with big "footprints" Now I restarted it and it worked but because of other circumstances I had to restart the printing. I found a problem in the filament coils that they have been rolled up in a way that the filament got stucked! There should be a sensor that notice that the material doesn't feed instead of continue print empty and therefore loose track! I also noticed that after PLA have been unpacked it ages, loose its flexibility and easier get stuck. Now I restarted with a new fresh roll.
  14. To print a model can take some time and it could be very noisy when you live in a Studio like I do. I decide to test first cool down the nozzle and the plate, when cooled down I turn off the fan and LED light. My plan is to adjust back the settings tomorrow and continue from where I paused. Is this possible? What happen if there is a power cut when printing? Is all the work wasted? In Spain it happen even if not very often like in old days. / Daniel
