Assateague Lighthouse - Chincoteague Virginiaby
Model originally uploaded to Thingiverse at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4113952.
I saw this - https://www.tinkercad.com/things/dJeDZeFinG0-assateague-island-lighthouse - by Sarah Cath and wanted to be able to 3d print it, so I reworked it. Had to remove all the extras, rocks, fence, etc to even get it to export. I had to redesign the top of the lighthouse in order for it to print decent without support as the windows are so thin the support was breaking them off. I split this into 3 pieces to print at 100% scale on my Ender 5. As you can see by the picture it is about 16 inches tall.
I included the Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 gcode files as I know they worked perfect on my Ender 5. I included 3mf and stl files also of course.
The other files are the full lighthouse without being cut apart. One is before I repaired it in 3D Builder. They have more detail, including the actual light mechanism in the top that i had to remove because it would not print without support and there was no way to really get the support out. I do not know if a SLA printer would do it or not a I don't have one.
Oh and NO SUPPORTS! If you use supports it will mess it up by winding inside the buildings. There is a floor at the height of the bottom of the door that I couldn't figure out how to remove and that is holding up the chimney and the staircase I believe. I would like to remove it and extend both of them further down the base but I was lucky to get it this good and be able to print it! You will get some stringing between the base and that subfloor as the bridging is insane but it doesnt effect anything and mine printed just fine with it that way. You may get some squiggles here and there but nothing that effects how it prints (at least for me).
Any questions, please ask.
Comments and makes are nice :)
