This is a 123D Catch scan I did of an armchair in my mom's basement over the holidays. It is an overstuffed, contemporary American-style armchair that I've resized to approximately 1:24 scale.


Print one copy of the chair STL. I recommend using at least 2 extra shells to improve surface finish. The file does not require support.

Print four bun feet, using the multiply option. Attach to chair bottom using acetone or glue.

These are amazing! I'm going to print this one and a few others for a set model.

why my printer doesn't prints @ 1/4 scale? It messes up in the beginning and i have to cancel all the time

I printed this and quarter inch scale and it turned out great except for the feet. I just put little wooden beads on it and it is lovely! You mentioned somewhere that you do have some quarter inch scale projects and I would love to see them. Do you have a website? I have found that miniatures seem to work out the best of the ones I have tried. I am very new to 3-D printing and I have a little mini 3-D which is perfect for the size that I want. Thank you for all of the work that you post.

That chair is GRAND!!!! I like it!

Great thing! I have made one (see picture) but on my DLP printer is the right side of the back of the chair slightly wider than the left side.(looking from the front) Do you have the same on your PLA printer?

It's quite possible it's not perfectly symmetrical since it's scan - I think what you're seeing is part of the STL, not a print defect.

Oh great, thanks! I thought I saw it in the STL but its hard to measure, I spent whole afternoon checking the calibrations of the printer but I couldn't find a fault...

Im printing.Did you use camera or iphone to scan the armchair?How many pictures? Its really really cute and beautiful:)

iPhone - I think 30 pictures or so. Glad you like it!

It`s amazing!I used 123D catch,but not very useful.What software did u deal with it?

I cleaned the scan up in meshmixer - fixed holes, cut the bottom flat, did a little sculpting to fix a couple errors

Thank you for the model, realy great. But I had a problem with holes just between the armrests and the accent. I suppose it is becouse I use 10% of infill, what infill did you use?

You can also try increasing the solid surface value under fill in skein forge. I find that helpful for a lot of scans I've done.

Very nice model. Just made one on my Thing-O-Matic in black plastic. Looks like leather. :)
