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.

Glad you found the talk helpful. The thingomatic was my first printer, though I don't use it much anymore. I used pairs 3D printed "rosettes" - you can actually see them in one of the photos here. Better still, get some springs, and only use one rosette on the bottom.
I just have to say that the video on youtube about the 3D design ten tips was really helpful to me. I saw on one of your prints that you are using a ThingOMatic (I think). I wanted to ask you how you level the platform. Thanks

Give a Shout Out
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!
