House Print 4/N: “Second Beta”

image

I have 3.5 floors printed!  And they go together!  With Stairs!

There are some problems:

image I forgot to cut a section out of the “concrete” that the family room sits on to make room for the stairs from the basement up to the family room.

I also had a hard time getting the steps on the left to fit – I had to resort to my wife’s Dremel to cut some of it down to size.   (Incidentally, a Dremel doesn’t cut it, it selectively melts it via friction)

image I did not make the basement 7ft high like it really is.   Thus, the kitchen is than in reality – and the stairs are the wrong height.

In this same picture, you can also see the problem I have with trying to get the stairs to fit.   
The kitchen wall does not line up with the bedroom wall.

image I ran out of filament with 3 pieces of the bedroom to go.   If I had not made mistakes, I could have gotten the whole thing in a 1kg spool.   (In the pictures above, notice the bedroom has no upper section)

I have ordered a 2kg (5.5 lb) spool of white (“Studio Line White” from JustPLA.com);  With it I’m going to start over.  This time:

  • Correct the basement height
  • Put the stairs in from the start so they get “cut” correctly.  
  • I want to reflect where the ground level is better.

When I get time, I plan on making a how-to video – for my own benefit, since a year from now I won’t remember the details:

  • How to create the blueprint
  • How to size the blueprint to create the text overlap
  • How to use the code to generate the STL’s
  • How to use the Join libraries to make the pieces possibly fit each other
  • How to use the Cut libraries to make things printable on my print bed and Plate them
  • How to use the Microsoft / NetFabb Cloud service to fix the model
  • How to use Blender to section the shells off into separate prints
  • How I glued things together (as best as I have found so far)
