Floorplans 2D drawings of floorplans are made and the main dimensions locked
Shaping 2D drawings are turned into simple 3D shapes
Splitting Model is split into smaller parts to fit 160x160mm printing beds
Connectors Door hinges, part connectors and studs allowing to stack the floors are placed, the holes are cut and offset to make up for printing inaccuracies
Ext. Detail Exterior details are added to the model
Int. Detail Interior details are added to the model
Decimation Parts are merged and the number of polygons is decreased where possible to reduce the file size
Geometry Final fixes to geometry are done in an external software to make sure all the parts print without errors
Final Test Prints Final test prints are made before uploading the files
Screenshots Screenshot of each part in slicer or 3D Builder is made, so you can check if there are no scaling issues in your slicer
Instructions Assembly instructions for the model are prepared
Main The main version of the model is uploaded. This version features interior details and is printed in parts. Both full and hollow versions of doors and windows are included in this version.
Floorless The floorless version of the model is uploaded. This version has most of the floor surfaces removed, so you can print it faster for games that don’t use building interiors. Both full and hollow versions of doors and windows are included in this version.
Merged The merged version of the model is uploaded. This version features interior details and is printed as one solid object with full windows and no working doors.
