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.TracePoints_Stairs.thumb.jpg.58e2a3d043df30339fff9a86028d82f9.jpg

Great project! It looks like the floor on your second photo is under extruded, is it not? You may want to try to make the top layers thicker so the infill doesn't shine through. 

 

Do you have an example of the blue print drawing you want to lay out on the floor? Sounds interesting!

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      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.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
