First tests of architectural prints

Recommended Posts

Posted · First tests of architectural prints

Been away from the forum for long, but not from my printer. Printed a lot but here are my last architectural prints. Tests and tests again of what can be achieved, what are the real interesting ways to use 3Dprinting forarchitecture.

Printed with colorfabb orange at 0.1mm layer and 50mm/s Speed

Bronzefill looks so nice I had to try with another architectural test. This filament just change the way you feell the printed part: heavy; shiny; even the sound is different. It really gives a precious and valuable aspect to prints:

may I say that my wife told me that the building looks like something else, I let you guess what...

I did a video to explain the whole process, from modelling in blender (though it's not for beginners) to polishing

This one is less experimental, and more classic:

It's a model of the village where our fablab is located. The name is St Cyr de Favières and it will host the meeting of all the St-Cyr villages of France. So every one of them will receive a small model of the village as a souvenir.

I used Blender for modelling, and used pictures, map of the village and aerial view as a reference. The aim was not accuracy but that the village was recognizable. Therefore I had to balance between lack of time and printability to choose which details to models.

I made two versions, one full that takes 25 hours to print (0.1mm), and a smaller one with only the central part (6hours to print in 0.2mm). As I have 22 of them to print, they will have the smaller one, printed in Colorfabbwoodfill that gives a nice not so plastic feeling.
