Miniature Queen Anne Chair
by PrettySmallThings, published
My design goals were:
Maintain delicate proportions, but balance the need for durability.
Print without support
Good looking resolution, with little cleanup needed
This does print at 50% (1/4" scale or 1:48) but is very fragile. I imagine that printing at 200% (1" scale or 1:12, typical dollhouse scale) would require support, and I have not tested it.

I had a few failed prints on the MakerBot Replicator 2 until I set the layer height to 0.27mm, and then it was perfect!
Not at this time - I switched to commercial printing to deal with demand earlier this year and free up more of my time for design. I started my business with a replicator 1, and I plan to add back some makerbot printed items in the near future.

The "double" file contains small discs underneath the chair legs which help the legs survive a knock or two from the extruder, which seems inevitable in my setup. I've provided a single chair, without the discs, for the better tuned and more adventurous users out there.
I use a hot knife attachment on my soldering iron to clean up any loops or nubs, and separate the legs from the discs & raft.
If you have recommendations for achieving better print quality, I'm all ears!
