Overview ~ Print Data ~ Support Settings ~ Print Process
The Blacksmith miscellaneous and extra files were really straight forward. Overall I printed in several batches and a few of the models were in resin, bricks and sign. There was absolutely no issue printing these files and would be easy for any method FDM or Resin printing.
Later on I did print the BW Rocks Oven file again using a Transparent filament. This was the first time using Transparent filament and overall was a fun project. The aim was to turn the forge of the blacksmith into a visibly lit and working piece. I am nervous about the paint job but am overall really happy about how it turned out. Check out the assembly write up for more details!
For ALL FDM print profile settings used in this print build. Here is the Google Doc which lists them all.
Printer: Prusa mk3s & Phrozen Sonic Mini 4K (Bricks & Blacksmith Sign)
Filament: ESun PLA+ Grey & Elegoo ABS Like Resin
Layer Height: 0.1 mm / 0.05 mm Resin
Time to Print all components: 18hr 22 min
Filament to Print: 54.47 g
Resin to Print: 20.3 g
Estimated Cost to Print: $2.06
Supports for the Blacksmith Sign were generated using PrusaSlicer auto generated supports and only a few slightly added for comfort since this model was printed before the pre-supported files were added.
Bricks for this building are redundant and added to several of the buildings throughout the Kingdom of Thamarya kickstarter. Therefore I printed them using the presupported files from another building which I believe was the cottages.
Required Print Processes
The most notable difficulty is that ALL pieces of this set require rotation of opened STL file to be flat on the print bed when loading into your slicer. The largest thing to look out for is to make sure that the bottom of each base piece is flush against the build plate. This ensures a good solid layer of adhesion for your print and best success while printing. When looking for the side to put against the build plate look for the side that has no details. In the case of BW Wall B I did lower the wall slightly into the build plate to ensure a solid 1st layer for printing as well.
Image below shows rotation of piece from Fishers Hut print logs but concept is same for Blacksmith as well.
