As the paint on the flight stand and the Hueys isn’t dry jet I thought I show you pictures of the next project. A vietnamese hut for a jungle village. As I got a 3D printer for x was I thought to use it to print a hut for my jungle terrain. Or a complete village? Not sure jet.
As I didn’t find an appropriate STL online I designed the hut myself using tinkercad.
Here are the pieces I designed:
Sorry forgot to take a picture of the roof.
Here are pictures of the printed version. Glued to a base.
I will post more pictures of the progress in the future. There is a smaller version without the veranda and a raised version for swamp settlements in the pipeline.

Very nice work, I look forward to seeing this painted up. Another good reason to get myself a 3d printer. Must start tinkering with CAD programs.
Start with Tinkercad it is a good start point
Nice! Lots of cool textures. Is 3D printing “there” now, in your opinion, as a low cost alternative to conventional crafting?
As the printers themself get cheaper and cheaper , I would say yes, but there is a considerable time sink when you start designing your own files . The Filament you use to print is rather cheap. I would say that you will be cheaper then resin cast buildings. Not so sure with mdf ones.
That looks really impressive. Have you made your files available anywhere?
Not jet . I am thinking about it when I have more.
