Kristin's Prototype Patterson Farm House

Update 9/08/15

9/8/15 Progress: We Printed

The Farm house was printed and came out of the printer looking good but fragile. After being in the support structure dissolving tank things started to fall apart. We have found the problem of floors being added and are addressing this issue with the folks at Stratasys.

Post Detail in drafting and rendering


The 3D rendering is ready for a test run

Kristin has been extremely busy learning Sketchup and after many attempts has successfully designed the Patterson Farm House. She says that the model is NOT finished, but it is at a stage that she could send it to us at the Fab Lab for testing.

Kristin's stl file works on the 3D printers loading software for the MakerBot and the uPrint printers.

We have posted the file to the Lab's TLMRC disk and will request a test print of this on a MakerBot printer in the lab.

The file has been saved in mm and is scaled to N-scale. 


Nice work,

Paul Wussow
