Summary

Printable Architecture Kit Series 1

This is a printable Architectural model making kit that is fun to print, build and bring your building designs to life.

This kit is made up of interlocking modular components that fit seamlessly to each other, making it easy and fun to create endless design configurations.

This is a fun educational tool for, Students, Architects, Kids, model makers and design enthusiasts.

Each part was designed to print perfectly without the need for supports or rafts on any FDM FFF 3D Printer.. Just print and build!.

This series contains Beams, Columns, Floor slabs, Stairs, Roofs, Walls and Interior Partitions in 10 separate STL flies ready to be printed and assembled.

We will be publishing loads more building parts and interlocking components!

Download, print and start creating!

Instructions

During slicing, Set your initial layer thickness to 0. (The first layer printed on the print bed) This allow all parts to fit perfectly. All beams are included in the pack. If you don't have enough you can just print some more.

Design development done in 3D Studio MAX. Test print done using Ultimaker 2

By doing some test prints of the door wall section, looks like printing at 89.6% give you HO scale buildings.

Hi,

I want print for G SCALE. But for it i need to print piece by piece because it's too big to print. But it's impossible to ungroup pieces?

Do you have a answer to this problem ?

thanks

bruno

I think that this model of the house very cool and really good for educational purposes :)

What's scale of this house?

I'm having a problem printing the pieces with the chimney in them. Can the files be made where there is no gap between the rest of the piece and the chimney. Other than that it printed out really well.

About how long does it take to print the entire house?

Depends on your printer It took me about 4 days at 40mm/s speed Ultimaker2

I am trying to print this model using a 0.20mm layers and 100% (or 0) as extrusion width for the first layer. However, all tentatives were fruitless. Do you have any idea for configuring the Slic3r? Thanks in advance for any help.

Hey roberteregina, Go to Advanced under the print settings tab in Slic3r and set the first layer width to 100%.
Default "0" is 200% and will double the width of the first layer.

I use Cura and it's pretty straight forward. "set initial layer width to 0"

Thanks, ArchitectureKIT.

I did this already, but I am not getting good results on my printings of the Kit Series 1 model. Which layer thickness would you recomend for all layers (except the first one, that I normally configure as 150%) ?
Thanks again if you may help me on that.
Best regards,

Robert

150% will make it impossible for any part to fit together as each interlocking part becomes 50% larger or smaller. Use 100% for everything.
Set shell thickness to 0.8, print speed 40 mm/s and make sure your bed is perfectly levelled before printing.

Thanks for your answer. My printer has an automatic leveling mechanism, so I just give a manual command before printing and the bed is perfectly leveled. As I normally use Slic3r, your shell thickness of 0.8 shall be translated as 4 perimeters of 0.2mm. Am I right? Anyway this afternoon I shall try again printing at least the Walls_1 part, and let's see what happens.

Yes you are right, If you have a 0.2 mm nozzle. All my Nozzles are 0.4mm so it's normally 2 perimeters of 0.4mm. Good luck printing let me know how it goes.

So, to make a 'simple' house, just like the one in the pictures, how many of each model should I print?
I'm not really into architecture, but love printing stuff like this, so a nice 'test' house would be great!

Cool model! To buy 3d printed art like this, visit http://3dprintedart.weebly.com/index.html . Thanks in advance if you visit!

What scale would I have to print this to get 1:160 scale. What scale is the .stl?

The scale is Approx 1:68 that's the lowest we could go to avoid problems like breaking parts during assembly..

That's usefull to know. So miniature trains owners can (try) printing it at 78% to get to the classic HO scale (1:87) :-). @ArchitectureKIT, thank you so much for all your work!

I was unable to get the pieces together. The slab connectors were to fat to fit in the beam holes first off So, I took the slabs out and built it that way until I noticed there must be missing beams between the first and 2nd floor. I haven't tried it at a different scale. Any input on assembly would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks, Emilee

great thank you!!

I have been printing the house at 70% scale, and the parts do not seem to snap together. (I am trying to get approx HO scale, and almost everything fits on the Mini print platform at 70%.)

Also, Based on the posted pictures, there seems to be missing bases for the columns. Are there more pieces?

Thanks, Pete Lowell

Hi PETREL,
When slicing, Set your initial layer thickness to 0. (The first layer printed on the print bed) This allow all parts to fit perfectly. Columns in this series do not need a base as they lock directly unto the beams. All beams are included in the pack. If you don't have enough you can just print some more.

I guess I am out of luck. My mini does not allow layer heights of less than 0.2 mm. When I set it to zero it immediately changes back to 0.2. There does not appear to be a separate control for initial layer height.

This is one of the coolest things I've seen in quite some time!

Cool idea and nice execution I will have to say, anyone else making this... you should show off the modularity and not just print the exact same thing. (Or are you too busy waiting for Taco Tuesday?)

Do you have any tutorial's on how to design one for my personal home? I have been kind of working on it with Tinkercad, but I feel there is a better option for me. Great design's, congrats on being featured!

Thanks Bassna,
I'm working on a tutorial at the moment.. Should be up soon.

Regards,

This looks like a cool project. I did a test print to make sure they will go together well from my prints & they seem to. I am having problem slicing the wall with the chimney in Roof_walls_001.stl. It does not want to slice correctly using Slic3r 0.9.9. I ran a repair on all of these parts 1st using Netfab basic. When I run a repair on this part in Netfab basic, it turns the top of the chimney a different color than the rest of the part. I also tried changing the tolerance of the repair from .001m to 1mm which had no affect. If I import these parts into another program like blender, some of them seem to be located quite a bit from 0,0,0 origin.

Thanks for puzzle,
David

Thanks for the feedback GeoDave,
I used Cura for slicing, and it seemed okay and printed fine. I got a bit sloppy setting the origins to 0,0,0 as Cura auto centers the model when importing. I'll run them through a few more slicers and update as soon as possible.
Once again, thanks.

ArchitectureKIT.

Would it be possible to get the finished dimensions?

If you scroll through the rendered previews you would see an image with dimensions..

that dont tell what scale the model is though. like 1:100, 1:25 etc

best guess looks like S scale 1:64th

what scale are these in?

If you scroll through the rendered previews you would see an image with dimensions.

Very nice and congratulations on the feature on homepage! However some more instructions wouldn't be too much if you want to make it really successful. I think you're going to loose lots of potential makers in the current state.

Anyway, thanks for the models!

Thanks for your feedback Kolia,
I'm working on a builders manual and tons of new pieces..

Cool! I'm into architecture and 3D printing, so this is perfect for me.

Out of curiosity, how big are the individual squares that make up the floor grids?

Each square slab is approx 4.5cm x 4.5cm

TopperDEL,
Start with beams, columns and slabs. You can use these to create you frame work.. You can add the walls and roofs later :)

I wonder if I could build my house layout based on these....

Probably Purefire,
I haven't added internal walls in this pack.. I will be uploading these soon.

Wow! This will be my next big Project!

Can you give a small introduction on which parts should be printed how often to e.g. create the smallest house possible?

TopperDEL, Start with beams, columns and slabs. You can use these to create you frame work.. You can add the walls and roofs later :)

Great, thanks!
