Moving to new digs this summer? 3D-print some models of your furniture to plan out your space! It's much more fun than Actually Packing Things.

In the Customizer you can design custom bookcases, sofas, beds, tables, desks, chairs, and more with your own dimensions and scaling, or choose from a library of stock furniture that includes standard bed sizes and IKEA bookcases.

MakerHome, Day 262:


All models are designed and oriented to print without support or rafts.

1:50 scale seems to work well. To make 2D-prints of your rooms at a matching scale, measure the rooms and then divide all measurements by 50. Use a graphics program or a ruler to map out your space at the 1:50 scale and then arrange the 3D-printed furniture inside.

rotate_extrude(convexity = 10)
translate([10-.5, 0, 0])
circle(r = .6);

Two things.

  1. It's a solid idea, with even more solid execution.

  2. You have to be careful how it prints. Table legs and such can easily snap off if you're not careful.

Overall it's a fun, cute, and ingenious idea. Bravo!

I'm an architecture student and this is perfect for my scale models.

But what about my printer?!?!

This is a great idea!

That is the cutest thing

Brilliant. One of those "why didn't I think of it!" moments!

I'm thinking to scale these up or down (don't know yet) to make heroclix games a little more exciting. :) have you created any outside exterior objects?

Only about 8 months late but, heroclix tends to vary between 25mm and 30mm scale which is between 1/64th or so and 1/54th. I tend to do most of my minis scale modelling at 1/60th (a more 28mm scale) which would be a 0.833 multiplier (aka a 16.66~ percent reduction) or at 1/55th (a hair smaller then the 30mm scale) which would be a .909 multiplier or a 9.09% reduction. so if you scale it down somewhere between 9% and 16% they should work great.

Edit: my slicer setting would be at 91% (~30mm scale) to 84% (~28mm scale). I realized my scale down terminology might be confusing. ^.^;;

These are really awesome. No chance you will ever make film gear(i.e. cameras, lights, etc...)

This is really cool!
