This is my take on SF corridor. I’ve designed it to meet following criteria:
- all components have to be 3d printed,
- printing time has to be manageable (there are tons of free and commercial designs of the corridors which take hours to print 4” module),
- it has to allow building corridors and rooms of any sizes,
- it has to allow to build curved corridors,
- it has to be easy to paint,
- it has to take as little storage space as possible (that is my second greatest complain about all drangon-lock and similar solutions, they take lots of space to store),
- it should be set possible to set up a table in reasonable time.
- it should allow for building of higher levels (future project).
Pieces that you will download in this project are prepared to be printed on FDM printers with no supports. Walls and doors are best printed flat on the bed, this makes prints faster and makes use mostly of your printer’s X-Y resolution, but requires well levelled bed.
I tried to make filenames as descriptive as possible, the key to reading them is as follow:
- Connector – the simpliest piece connecting walls directly
- Corner Ad Bx – corner piece connecting wall pieces where:
A stands for angle between connected walls,
B stands for number of walls that can be connected with this piece.
- Door Frame SA BBmm DDD – as name suggests, piece of wall with slot for door, where:
SA stands for size of the slot (you should print doors of corresponding size),
BB stands for how long the wall around the slot is in total (in mm),
DDD is description of décor used on the wall around the slot.
- Door SA DDD – the door themselves, where:
SA stands for size of the door (they are suited for slot of corresponding size),
DDD is description of type of door.
WARNING: with glass door you need to print them twice to produce one door (and cut piece of translucent plastic to stick between them)
- Stencil – as name suggests, a stencil to paint hazard stripes in the bottom of the walls, should you want them.
- Wall BBmm DDD – the main building part, wall itself where:
BB stands for how long the wall is in total (in mm),
DDD is description of décor used on the wall.
As for printing I printed all the parts on Prusa I3 mk3:
3 bottom layers,
4 top layers,
5% infill (for corner pieces crank it up to 30%)
0.3 layer height
