The first story of the Cottage from CastnPlay’s Kingdom of Thamarya kickstarter. Printing this base floor of the building was incredibly straight forward as I printed on an FDM printer. Both the walls and base printed as one complete piece and fit on top of each other snuggly. I also printed the wall piece with the addition of tree supports to improve overhangs for the doorway and windows. If you are interested in my print settings for tree supports scroll down to Support Settings
Special Note: Floor & Walls print in 2 pieces each for resin printers. See 1st Story assembly guide for how those pieces are broken up on resin.

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.
Image below shows rotation of piece from Fishers Hut print logs but concept is same for Cottage as well.
