RBA - House 2
by rba, published
1:100 concept model for a house design in Western Australia. Modelled in Archicad, the .stl's were then cleaned up with Netfabb and printed with a Replicator 2 using the makerware slicer. We experienced a few less printing issues than with House 1, yet there was still some curling issues and a few other inconviences along the way.
This design also called for multiple louvres and a few other add on pieces that have been printed seperately and glued on afterwards (front fences, fireplace flue, etc).
Printed with 10% infill, 0.22mm layer height and 3 shells using Makerware with the Makerware slicer. Printed in 4 ground sections due to size of the build plate and the associated curling issues with bigger prints.
There should be no need for support as required support has already been modelled under the large openings (these are easy to either cut or snap out) compare the photos to the model if these are not obvious. Also the 'thermal corners' around the sections seemed to minimize the curling issues on our printer.
Roof sections were printed on their sides to get the best surface finish.
