A few questions.....
What software are you using??
I use SketchUp to design and find the models unworkable as STL.
Do you re-model the design at scale, and simplify...

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the enquiry.
We model all our projects using Graphisoft ArchiCAD. The models are far too detailed and complex to translate directly into a format suitable for 3D printing so we are required to undertake a certain amount of remodeling to 'dumb' the model down including breaking into sections to either suit the size fo the build plate or how we want to separate the final model components.

Hi, it so cute. Do you suggest abs or pla?

We only put PLA through our Makerbot printer.
Thanks for your comments.

Where are the people stand on your model???
Come on, Please add those cute guys.

The people and cars used in our building models are purchased from a hobby shop and inserted into the finished 3D printed models. The people are too small and detailed to be printed successfully.

Hi, can you please elaborate furhter on the printer and settings?

This print was done using a Replicator 2, on standard 'high' settings, and I believe the shells were set to 2 with a 10% infill and a 0.1mm layer height.
