Stone Houses from the Land of Whyst by Whystler Aug 29, 2010

Featured Thing!

Description

Hey! Welcome to my first thing! I've always had a bit of an obsession for building modular architecture in 3D. I've created it virtually for Activeworlds, Secondlife, and IMVU. I used to make them in clay to sell at Renaissance Faires even!

Well now that I have a 3d printer, I just had to share these with you.

The larger scaled houses in the pictures accurately show what is respresented by the stil files. This larger scale (which is actually not so large at 6.6 cm wide), is N scale - perfect for model railroaders. It's also perfect for dollhouse-for-a-dolhouse scale. So you can paint em up, and play with them however you like. They're meant to be arranged together and match up nicely.

Watch out for more of these thingies coming, so you can collect, print, paint and play!

Thank you.. I know the following sounds weird.. gave a small model of this to my father before he died.. Parkinson's prevented him from ever enjoying this 'our' new talent which is available .. btw I agree with the box blog... although as an engineer my designs tend 'to go 2012 square'ism
Luv it

Thank You for sharing your work, a very good job !"As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them."

You could make Monopoly game houses and hotels.

The pictures show these models printed on an UP! 3d printer by PP3dP. But I'm very interested in seeing how they turn out on the makerbot or on a reprap, since there are a lot of folks who have these out there. So, if you print one, please share a pic. I definately want it to work for you!

Is there a hollow version of this? I was hoping to print in clear and stick lights inside to make the windows glow!

Very cool! Thanks for sharing. :)

My significant other likes to make HO-scale dioramas (railroad or not) and this is pretty close to being useful for that; she begged me to print one out and plans to paint it and use it in a build. Thank you for sharing.

While skeinforge did complain about manifold issues, the end print was (nearly) flawless. The only issue was when my model unstuck partway, hit the print head, and made it skip a bit on both axis, as you can see in my photo about 3/4ths of the way up.

I guess I'd like to add, if you have any tips for painting it, I'd love to hear it. We went out and bought a set of acrylic paints especially for the purpose, although we expect to get a lot more use out of them.

Wow, loving it, especially when painted!! Nice work :)

DaveD on Aug 31, 2010 said:

These look pretty cool!

Skeinforge is complaining about a non-manifold mesh. Blender
&
amp; MeshLab also say there are non-manifold bits, mostly on the 4 corners and top of the roof, but I'm not good enough at modeling to fix 'em.. :(

Whystler on Aug 31, 2010 said:

I am spoiled by my new printer that is tolerant of non manifold issues. Note to self: get back into the habit of creating non manifold meshes like you do for Shapeways!

I'll continue to look into this and see what I can do about fixing the mesh to make it manifold. I've done some checks and auto-fized in netfab, but haven't been successful yet. This is my first try at using netfab. If I have to, I will rebuild the mesh to make it right!

I just added an extra pic showing that these can be painted successfuly with craft acrylics and a huge dollar store brush :)

Nice detail on the roof...
