Assembly is a P-A-I-N for these old hands. If you would make the legs in pairs with cross pieces for the bed sides at appropriate heights and not texture the inside of the crosspiece or the bed sides, then the beds could still print flat and yet be easier to assemble.

They already exist. Use jpacek's remix.

jpacek's bunk posts would not lay flat. I remix'ed his to resolve the issue and rotated them into the proper printing position.

These look great. A tip would be to add a version that is already assembled. After combining your tables in mesh mixer I realized how bad I am at it.

I designed them deliberately in pieces so you can print them flat without rafts or supports. I'm not sure how you would print this as a one-piece model without a ton of supports and a lot of clean up. If you are worried about assembly, there is a remix bed post that will make the bunk bed assembly far easier.

I have some issues with smaller parts warping that I cant seem to fix. So a lot of clean up is something I have had to get used to.

Really great stuff! These are MUST PRINTS for me! Well done and thanks!

Thanks! More coming....

How did you paint these?

For the beds, I started with the pieces assembled and spray painted black ( the $1 cans of black spray paint from Home Depot). I first dry bushed on some Burnt Umber (Americana), then dry brushed on some Sable Brown (Americana), and then dry brushed on some Fawn (Americana).

For the mats, I again started with pieces spray painted black. I dry brushed on some Raw Umber (Americana), then dry brushed on some Cocoa (Americana), then dry brushed on some Cocoa with a couple drops of yellow. The straw is just yellow.

Very nice, some cheesecloth blanks would really top it off :)
