More of a complex than a house to be honest.
Having had a busy day, what with watching a very interesting dinosaur talk in Lerwick. We booked it a while ago. Typically my youngest came down with chickenpox and couldn’t go. Lucy and I went and had a good time. After a bit of shopping we came home and she asked me to help her build a castle and village on Minecraft, I don’t know why as she is getting much better than me 😱.
So instead of printing anything off I decided to do something a bit different. Instead of a courtyarded building I went for more of a complex.
This is on the printer right now, but this is the view in Cura…
It needs roofs printing as well as the tower top. To save time I embedded a door in the base of the tower. This one is a bit more complex in that it has walls inside walls to make the distances fit, I also did some scaling to make sure doors and windows fitted snuggly as well as increasing the height of the tower. As can be seen the shutters are protruding a bit more than the last one so they should be more visible.
Whereas the last few were printed at a 0.2mm layer height I have decided to go for 0.1mm for this one. This should give me a better print, but also increases the time of printing.
The 0.2 mm version would take 4 hours plus this one is doubling it to just shy of 10 hours. So by 07.00 tomorrow it should be finished.
This is what it looked like earlier…
Not very much to see really.
Tomorrow I will show the fruits of my labour… aka scratch building 21st century style.. Thanks John👍
Update at 23.30….
After 3 hours and 3 minutes we are this far…maybe 10mm high at best 😱
