I'm printing this now. I have completed the base, the door frame, the octocupler, and I'm printing the tower now. Your design work is superb!. Thanks so much for this. Funny how I'm recalling memories from each vacation that my wife and I have taken to OBX while this is printing. Thanks! I'll be sure to post the final results after assembly and painting.

Here is mine so far. Kinda of changed alot with it. Just need to blackout the windows and finish the very top and paint it. It will be about 2 foot tall when its finished. I redesigned most of the parts cause I added a geared motor and a brush system so I could have the duel light on the top spin. I added a pwm to the motor so it will spin 4rpm just like the real one. I also added a base with a white fence around it and use train board turf for the sandy grass.i will post a video of it when it's done. Thanks for your all your hard work.

What did you use for the perimeter fencing? I am wanting to do something similar.

Glad to have found this, saw the real one this summer so it will be a wicked model for our decorations. Thanks again.

Posting completed pics once the print finishes :)

AMAZING! The detailed explanation is just overwhelming! (in a good way)
Thank you for making such models!

Fantastic! I see lots of people making Things that are single-shot prints, but I've always had a "kit" type of mindset. Why sacrifice detail or size if a little paint and a few drops of glue make it so much better? Love the work, will be making one of these!

Any chance you could split the tower into 2 pieces as an option? I have an M3D micro and it can print everything but the tower due to height limit. Awesome model and fanatastic GIF instructions though. Much appreciated. :)

You can open the model with slic3r and cut the model, then esport the two parts as .stl files and use them in your slicer

@goblingift I could try my best, but I am unfamiliar with modeling/creating dual material STL files. I'm also moving back to school tomorrow, so I won't have much free time, but I'll try to make that addition to the thing files in the future.

Can you deliver a dual print design?

Amazing model and thanks for the GIFs of how to finish it!
