UPDATE Nov 28 2016: I remixed the key so it would fit more snugly.
Amazed by ClassyGoat's fantastic Farmhouse Advent Calendar, but intimidated by the building and gluing required? Got a big build area, like the Robo3D? Do you hate supports? Then this remix is for you! I made a few mechanical changes to make this easier to assemble:
The walls now have tabs for gluing them together - just apply glue to the tabs and clamp the walls together until they set. (I printed a few of these for the job: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1673030). You can see an example in the photos. I recommend Loc-Tite GO2 glue for everything.
The candy containers now print as part of the walls - you don't have to line them up and glue them. Instead, print out 24 of container_cap.stl and glue them on. (If you scale them down just a bit, they might snap on and stay without gluing.)
I made a new F1 floor - this one is a little larger, and more importantly has slots for the walls to fit into, to help with alignment and stability while gluing. The walls will fit in fairly tightly; you may have to sand, file or plane off a little plastic from the corners of the walls.
Because the walls sink a couple of millimeters into the floor, you'll need to print my rescaled F1 railing instead of the original so it'll fit the new clearance.
You may want to skip the Christmas Tree box; I'm not sure it will fit with the new built-in candy containers.
- Last but not least, I made a single-piece roof. I actually printed it in ABS by using an enclosure to keep it from warping, but you'll probably have better luck with PLA. You will need a raft to print this, and you may want to lower the air gap on the raft so that it holds the piece tighter during the print, since it will be heavily cantilevered while printing.
Other than these, print the original pieces from ClassyGoat's design and assemble per those instructions. I printed all the remixed parts at 0.3mm with no supports.
Rafts only needed for the roof
