Description

The Sears Modern Homes where kit home sold by Sears, Roebuck and Company between 1909 and 1940. Innovative in their time, over 70,000 were sold.

The Kits included everything needed to finish the home, from lumber to electrical fittings. Sears homes can still be found in cities and towns across the United States. They stand in testament to their quality, and the people who assembled them.

Another great option for converting to watertight models is OpenSCAD, a sketchup plugin. It has worked great for me.

Very nicely done! And how amazing that over a hundred years ago you could buy a house kit out of a catalog and - with the help of a few mates and a few beers - put the whole thing up right up to the light switches (but no curtains?!)

Does it need support when printing?

I am probably going to print this model but can anyone tell me how much plastic a full sized print of this uses?

Very nice! Are supports necessary for this model?

Very very cool model!
I printed it on the up! mini by scall a half. The output is satisfied, but only pity is the window is not printable. My printer printing size is a little small to print it, I can't print it if I don't scall it. It would be perfect if the window is printable.
Any tips for printing a small window?

very cool printable model.
may i ask, what software did you use to model this house.
I have tried archicad and autocad, to convert my house drawings to water tight models for printing but seem to always get breaks in my geometry or strange intersections between volumes in my models.
i would be really greatful for any tips.
thanks.
Ian :-)

Looks like they built this model in sketch up, but I do this type of work in AutoCAD often without trouble.  Because AutoCAD is a solid modeler, it's well suited for 3D printing.  I combine as many solids as possible with the union command prior to exporting, and use the BREP command on particularly complex solids, or any solid that refuses to combine with the rest.  My understanding is that BREP erases the solid's "history" of smaller shapes and simplifies it.  Netfabb Basic is also good for running simple cleanup scripts on STLS before printing.
