i printed it and its to small the elf vilage dont fit ?????

Must be a problem at your end, it's been downloaded over 600 times with no problems. Maybe just scale it up bit before you print it.

now printing at 108%

What kind of LED lights go under the houses?

I used a string of 10 leds powered by 2 AA batteries, very cheap, find them in pound shops, eBay etc

fantastic. im a novice printer a week or two and was wondering how i could adapt this model to fit LEDs thankyou very much.
could i ask which infill pattern you used please.
the base is an added bonus too.

Glad you like it, I printed min with around 10% diagonal infill this should let you drill holes in the bottom and form a good size cavity for the led .

I did something different : no infill but some support (10-15%). In the supports settings i ask the support to stop at 0.2mm from the top layer, like this, when the print is over i can remove supports very easily on the whole bottom including houses and get the whole area clear to put leds. and supports can be printed a lot faster and be uggly its not a problem.

If it could help...

Nice day and again, thx

That's a clever idea, so you printed without a bottom layer?
I can see how that would save time and the lighting does look nice and even.

Yes, no bottom, your base has one so it is useless to do one for the village.
For my setup at least but depend on how people plane to do the led thing.
If somebody wants to glue and organize inside, it is very simple cause you have easy access.
For my case I'll use those led after Christmas so it’s easy to get it in and get it out.
