  1. Hi, I’m new to 3d printing and am a architecture student. I would like to know how would I get my model from Revit at either 1/8” scale or 1/4” scale to be the same scale in the Cura software ? Please any help or walkthroughs
  2. Hi Guys Im currently an architecture student and was thinking of 3D printing a model this week. I have attached a sketchup image of the model I will be 3d printing but was wondering if anyone would want to help me with the best quality settings for a Ultimaker 2+ 3d printer. This will be used for my final presentation thus I would want it to look as crisp as possible however I have never used the 3D printers before. 3D printer.obj
  3. Hello community, After the success of last year, also in part to your support (👇👇👇here is the post from last year👇👇👇) we gave the start to the HALO Pavilion and have it ready for assembly on the following date: March 14-15, 2020 // Helsingborg, Sweden The greatest 3D-printing event in the Nordics The Halo Pavilion The goal is to build a fully modular structure produced entirely on modern desktop 3D-printers. With the help from the 3D community in Sweden and around the world we aim to complete this project and assemble it throughout the first day of the event. The structure, composed of 400 pieces has a size of approximately 3 meters by 5,3 meters and the height comes in at between 2,7 and 4 meters. This thing is huge! The assembly is done through the use of zipties. See more images below. Also, please make sure to share this page with your friends. We would also love it if you could upload photos of your printing progress to social medias. Please use the hashtags #3DMSPP and #3DMS2020 when posting. We will do our best to retweet and share your images when we see them. Happy printing! SIGN UP HERE: https://3dmeetup.se/community-print/ We learned from last year that a glue gun is not the solution but instead zip ties as a connection method. In addition to last year, this year we are going to introduce wooden bars as additional structure element connected in turn also by 3D printed elements - as in the video above. Hope to see some of you there this year, and I do hope you join this community print again. Thank you.
  4. Hello everyone, Since the Architect Design Competition | Trees....... never happened last year id be really interested to see what people have actually done for themselves. These would be at 1:500 scales so end products would be 5m, 10m, 15m, and 20m trees at this scale (see files attached for XYZ dims). A challenge or a nightmare? okay so for my practice here in Chichester, I have been trying to print trees in mass (so not just one at a time) the examples bellow print good by themselves and then seem to fail once trying to batch print. (if one fails in a batch it ruins the rest and after hours of printing this is really annoying ..... everyone ever who 3D prints knows the feeling). So as a start I have attached the files and the profiles I have been working on for everyone to look at. Different variations and shapes would be great to see and what people have done themselves. Any help at all on the current files would be great any variations just a bonus and as for as I am aware it hasn't been done !!!! The idea of this forum is to create a collection for all to use, so feel free to join, follow and upload to. Happy printing!!!!

  5. Hi guys, I need to print an Arch project in my S5. I am wondering that will give me the best result. planning to print a .06mm layer height with 0.4 nozzle using PVA. Maybe I'ill try "Normal" if the time get absurd. I want the final model to be white and not necessarily too shiny - essentially what I have seen in the marketing material for Ultmaker arch models. @SandervG @Stefania Dinea Thank you
  6. 3D printing a scaled model can really help to get your idea across during a client presentation. But besides your main model, you can add details to get your idea across vividly! An architect regularly uses various entourage sets to help bring their ideas to live. In our previous contest, we focussed on different vehicle sets to be used in projects like urban planning. In this contest, the theme is people. People can be used in any type of project, both small and big. The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women. Since most projects get scaled down, so will the people. So be considerate which level of detail you want to apply. You may also consider using just silhouettes as long as they are still recognizable. ? Separated in 3 segments we would like to ask for your help to design and provide the best entourage sets. There are some rules though: - One set should contain a minimum of 6 different models - It should be designed for 3D printing, no overhangs and it should be printable in single extrusion (without PVA).* - It should be submitted in a 1:100 scale so it is easy to scale up or down depending on one's project - You can submit as many entries as you want - Ultimakers and the winning entries will be made available to use for free as entourage sets by Ultimaker - You can only submit your own designs - It is recommended if your submission has a theme like 'Office workers'. 'People walking' or 'Adults and kids'. - Each segment will run for a period of 3 weeks - Got a submission? You can add an STL to your reply below. (It's also possible to add it to 3D files, but make sure to add a link to the replies below too. We only review the replies). * -As an example, when designing our example vehicle set for the previous contest we initially had a little detail in each tire that represented a rim. A nice tough we thought. But upon printing, this little detail made the first layer unreliable and therefore the whole print. We removed the detail and can now run a full set without any concerns. Example set: People in city neighborhood. We've also made an Ultimaker Peoplepack.zip. Hopefully it will get your creative juices flowing! Feel free to download, inspect and use it at your convenience. The Start. We're open for entries and looking forward seeing what you will submit. Each theme will run for 3 weeks, which means this people theme will run until August 1st. When the contests are over, we will make sure the winning entries are available in this architect sub-forum and Ultimaker will continue to add to these entourage sets if necessary. Of course, we hope that everyone who submits a set will do the same. We'll start with vehicles, then people and finally trees. The Prize. Important! So, what can you win? In each contest, there are 2 prizes to win. First prize; a large filament pack. Containing 10 reels of filament; white PLA. Second prize, a small filament pack. Containing 5 reels of filament; white PLA. The Jury. @Stefania Dinea and I, (@SandervG) are the jury. We will look for the design for 3D printing element (remember, we want to make your life easier!) and your choice of design/subject, i.e., which set we think will be used most eventually. Looking forward seeing your entries!
  7. I am Stefania Dinea, an architect who mixes 3D printing, VR, parametric design and blogging daily and I will share some of my 3D printing tips & tricks with you. 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
  8. On the principle of go big or go home - I would like to present to the community my 2019 personal project. EQUILIBRIUM 3D PRINTED PAVILION which will be build by the online 3D printed community in Sweden and also open for international contributors. The pavilion will be assembled on site during the 3D Meet-up Sweden 2019. April 27-28, 2019 // Helsingborg, Sweden General info about the project: The goal is to build a fully modular structure produced entirely on modern desktop 3D-printers. With the help from the 3D community in Sweden and around the world we aim to complete this project and assemble it during the first day of the event. The structure, composed of 216 pieces (72 unique) has a circumference of 3,5 meters and the height comes in at a total of 2,4 meters. The assembly is done through a pin connection system that remains unchanged throughout the entire structure. Each piece has been designed to fit on a printer with a build size of at least 200x200x200mm, but many pieces will surely fit on machines with an even smaller build volume. This means that almost everyone should be able to participate. See below for a quick rundown of the recommended print settings. 0.2mm layer height no support material 2 or 3 outer perimeters 5% infill – triangle pattern material of your choice (PLA is good) color of your choice We’re certain it will look really cool with all different colors once it’s all assembled. For every piece you also NEED to print 4 pins (included in the link). We recommend that you print the pins with a high percentage of infill, if not solid, and a fair amount of outer perimeters as they need to be sturdy. Depending on your settings, a normal piece takes around ~5 hours to print and consumes about 120g of material. Inspiration: I have been talking for over a year of making a 3D printed pavilion ever since I saw the Vulcan Pavilion. What I didn't quite agree with was the use of glue in the assembly - other than that - great idea.

She also implemented a 3D printing manual within her company and she was nice enough to share it with us. Below I will post extracts from her manual that are relevant to this topic. Preparing a print with Cura https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/52287-how-to-print-with-pva-support View option: - solid view - layer view: always use this so you can see if there are any parts missing or any errors in the model Controls: - Right click – orbit - Hold the scroll button – pan - Left click on the model – activates the modifiers (move, scale, rotate, mirror, assign extruder to model) Custom print setup Profile - Fast (what I recommend using) - Normal (better resolution, suitable for detailed models) - Fine/extra fine (takes too long and is not significantly better than the normal profile) - Custom mode changes : If profile settings have been modified in recommended mode under custom mode, a reset icon will appear to notify the user. Click the icon to show the changes that have been made, and revert back to the default profile settings. Infill - Infil density: 7% is enough for most models - Infill pattern: Grid - Relative positioning of infill patterns: Infill patterns are now positioned relative to the center of loaded models and an offset can be applied to control the infill more precisely and adjust it to preference or strength. Cooling - Always keep this setting on! Support - You don’t need support if there are no overhangs (balconies) or if the overhangs have less than 45 degrees angle - Select which extruder (print core) to use for the support structure - Extruder 1 : print core AA / PLA material - Extruder 2 : print core BB / PVA material - PLA is faster but it is more difficult to remove and it will leave marks in the model - PVA needs to be dissolved in water after the print is finished. depending on the size of the print, it can take a few hours to completely dissolve. Use warm water (but not hot! Otherwise it will deform the plastic) - When using PVA and encountering errors (the support is missing in some parts or it does not adhere well to the PLA) turn the “horizontal expansion” setting on. It will increase the size of the support structure and minimise the risk of adhesion errors but it will also increase the printing time. Build plate Adhesion - “none” if there are many models being printed at the same time and there is not so much space on the buid plate - “brim” to make sure there is no risk of warping. This will create a thin edge at the bottom of the model that you will need to manually remove after the print is done - If warping still occurs, check these solutions: https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/19537-how-to-fix-warping Preparing a 3d model for print - Select a layer combination that hides all details -Filter out the doors, windows and furniture from the 3D view -If you don’t want to show the interior of the building, use the morph tool and draw a surface that covers all the plan of the building. Offset it 100 or 150 mm inside and make a volume from it that fills up all the building. Use element operation tools to modify the morph -The final 3d should not have any holes inside otherwise the print will take longer to finish - If the model contains a large terrain, select the only the area you want to print with a Marquee tool that displays all floors and show it in 3D view - You can adjust the 3d View further by creating a horizontal cutting plane that will remove the bottom part of the terrain (it will save material and make the print faster) Check scale: it needs to fit on the build plate - Use an A3 Master layout in Archicad and create a new layout - Import one of these external drawings directly on the layout: AA.pdf (if you want to print with PLA only) AA_BB.pdf (if the print requires PVA support structure) - Place the plan view of the model you want to print - Adjust the scale of the model in order to fit in the white surface of the drawing. The grey parts are not usable (AA_BB has less printable surface because it using both extruders instead of only one) -Make sure the walls are thick enough to be printed (general rule : the walls should be at least 5 x printing layer height) - From the 3dview - save as StereoLitography file - Set the correct scale - Open the .stl file with Cura Printing with USB ● Place the USB stick in your computer. ● Slice your 3D model in Cura. Ensure that the print core and material configuration in Cura match the configuration on your Ultimaker 3 or change the configuration on your printer to match the settings in Cura. ● Save the print file (.gcode) via the “Save to removable drive” button to the USB stick. ● Eject the USB stick in Cura and remove it from your computer. ● Place the USB stick in the Ultimaker 3 (front side, next to the display). ● Go to Print and select the file you want to print. ● Write on the post-it on the side of the printer the information of the print (meters, grams) so that everyone can check how much material is left ● Once the print is finished, remove the model from the build plate https://ultimaker.com/en/resources/36910-how-to-remove-your-print-from-the-build-plate Add-on files: AA.pdf AA_BB.pdf NEXT BLOG - Q&A As my blog series is coming to an end, and I have enjoyed sharing and structuring the knowledge I have accumulated so far regarding 3D printing in architecture, I will still continue to post tips&tricks as I come across them, but as a final post of the series I will like to make a Q&A. So feel free to drop any questions that I might have missed and I will answer them in the next and final blog, which will be two weeks from now. Until next time, //Stefania
  10. We're preparing a print and in Cura these windows (and other similar windows around the model) require support material? Is this normal? I know there is essentially an overhang on the lintels but I'm just not sure it needs it? Any suggestions welcome!
  11. @Stefania Dinea offered to take on questions which she would happily answer in a Q&A. If I can answer any, I would also be happy to! Stefania mentioned this in her latest forum post 'ArchiCad'. I'll just create this thread so the request is more on the surface. We're still taking questions! ? If you haven't yet, check out the great guides she has already written!
