It took me very long to sculpt it, but finally I made it! My latest scenery / terrain 3D printable model! And without further ado I present you with my supportless two-storey house with removable walls and roof!
Previously I presented only the ground floor, but now I have updated this post and will review in brief the full house since it was successfully tested and printed on my small resin 3D printer – Anycubic Photon Mono. And while you are reading, have in mind that I am working on the furniture that you will see on some of the photos and the next post will be about the furniture for the house! So if you have any good ideas what to add – feel free to write few words on the e-mail or contact me on my Facebook page! So stay tune for more free STLs!
When creating this house I was trying to make two things possible. The first one was this house to be supportless and to be available for printing not only for FDM machines, but also for small resin printers (like my Anycubic Photon Mono). The second thing were the removable walls. One of my Patron asked me if I can make a house where the walls can be removed when the battle starts since the walls hinder all the action. So taking into consideration the above two things I started my work and I managed to achieve both goals!
The first thing about this house is that it is divided into three – ground floor, second floor and roof tiles. And each of them is divided into two parts – front and back. Here the idea was each part to fit it on the building plate of a small resin printer (like my Anycubic Photon Mono). For the FDM ones the size will not be a problem… I guess… So no matter front or back this part can be printed with ease.
However, due to the second goal (‘ … house where the walls can be removed when the battle starts … ‘), I have split the house into several items. Base and walls. Plus some other furniture – like stairs, an openable door and window shutters. But talking about the walls, here is the moment to share with you the fact that they are connected to the base via spikes. This means that each wall is put on two spikes to keep it in place, but let the player to remove it in case of battle or for any other reason.
However, if you do not like the idea of the removable spikes, you can simply glue all the walls to the base and have one monolith building 🙂
The next thing about the house are the openable door and windows shutter. All of them are created in such a way that they can be printed supportless on resin or FDM printer. So here you will have to print all the necessary parts and in you like to glue them to have the effect that I am talking about. And to be honest this is not a hassle. For each door or window shutter you will have to print the door or the shutter itself and two bolts that keep the respective item in place. See the picture bellow for more information. On it you can see that you have to put the window shutter on the hinge that is part of the wall and after that to put two bolts to keep things in place. And if you want to have the bolts not to fall off, just glue them on the bottom.
The design of the house is of a standard medieval or fantasy one: (1) timber frame, (2) cobblestone ground floor, (3) wooden door and windows shutters, (4) stone and daub walls and (5) stone fireplace and chimney. And in order to underline each of these elements, I made some modifications on the building.
For starters the walls have some cracks and the daub have fallen on several places where you can clearly see the stone / brick construction of the walls.
The fireplace area and the chimney are made of solid stones or bricks, so that they can withstand the heat of the fire. For the inside I have prepared a fireplace or oven (check later the furniture post for more information). On the back side you can see the massive stone structure of the fireplace and the chimney.
Next are the windows and the shutters. The ground floor need to have more of them, so that the inside to be bright. So I have added three windows on this floor. And each one have shutters that can be used in case the people inside need more privacy.
The door is the classic wooden one with some metal parts and bolts.
And finally the house have some furniture, but for the moment I have added only few things and one of them are stairs to the second floor. In order to be supportless, they are created into two parts – the flight of stairs and the supports. Easy to print and easy to assemble!
The ground floor is designed to be the place where one small family can stay, cook and eat.
Plus this floor have all the necessary accommodation for the above purpose – like oven, fireplace utensils, table and stools. But hope to make some more items and furniture for the final version! So every suggestion is welcome!
And this is pretty much about the ground floor of this free for personal use 3D printable and supportless house!
About the second floor.
Here the most important thing is that the roof is detachable so you can access the premise easy and to put all your figures ready for action! Plus if the wall get into our battle you can simply remove all or part of them!
The second floor is one big and spacious room (as it should have been in almost all rural medieval houses). I have designated this room to be used for a bedroom. That is the reason to have two beds inside, plus only two windows. The idea is to have less light compared to the ground floor enough to create good-night atmosphere, but at the same time when the sun comes out – to have enough light to see what are you doing and where are you going there 🙂
And that is pretty much about this cool looking FREE and SUPPORTLESS two-storey rural house! Hope you like all my work and see you soon with the fresh furniture for this house or for any other one that you might use and play with!
