Thanks for the feedback. Your model looks great, especially the floorboards. I am thinking of doing a new version with footings but it might take a while.

My personal web site JVRmodelismo is dedicated just for HO Scale (1:87) and all items can be downloaded free of charge...

You can download the floorboads from there by pressing the button [ Pavimentos e Calçadas ] and then print it on color laser printer...

also, for full size photos of your miners cottage press button [ Impressão 3D ]

Sorry, for my site being just it portuguese language at the moment, it is being translate to engish and chinese, but lack of time prevents me from having all languages online...

Thanks for the feedback.

Sorry about the orientation issue. When I produce my drawings it sets the orientation according to the axis I use. I'm not not always
consistent.

The support issue is also something I encounter. My printer will do the same thing. I use Cura when slicing the file and have found that the supports show up in the "sliced" preview of the model. If they are showing you maybe able to change the supports "angle" setting to eliminate the ghost support. But it may just be the edges of the clapboard triggering the supports.

I am in the middle of building this. I'm brand new to this, so it's taking me a while. I had some issues because when I loaded the models, they didn't always load in the recommended orientation - for instance, the main walls loaded on edge, instead of floor down. But I have a question about the design. There seems to be a small "bump out" at the foundation on the outside all opposite the front chimney - the same position as the front chimney but on the opposite wall. My printer even seemed to build a support from this up to --- nothing. At first I though that this was a tab and that the chimney would have a matching notch - but that was not the case. I'm just curious as to what this might be. THANKS for a great model! When I get it all done, I'll post some picks. I'm modeling in the US, but this design seems like a general enough clapboard siding dwelling that it should fit right in.
