    Been playing around with a couple ideas on the printer this last week. I wanted to see if I could print a decent corrugated metal texture, as well as try out a wood shingle texture on the 3D printer. This little N Scale structure was intended to be just a proof of concept but I think I'll go ahead and finish it with proper window and door treatments as well as other small details. A work in progress, printed on an Anycubic Mono SE:

    Mike,
    That turned out really well! What printer, what material, and what setting?

    Thanks for the positive feedback all!

    This was printed on an Anycubic Photon Mono SE, .075 layer height at 1.95s exposure with Anycubic gray resin. Main structure took about an hour, roof just under 30 mins if printed by itself.

    Cheers -Mike

    Little update on my small structure here. The corrugation and shingles idea was inspired by a drawing I came across of a tiny cafe in a Frisco town in rural Oklahoma. When I decided to add the signage for this building, I actually did a lot of research into what specific advertising signs these would be from the 30s or 40s era. I found vintage Coca-Cola and Pepsi signs online that appeared to be ballpark size of what's depicted in the drawing, got the actual measurements of those and forged ahead with the design. So the cola signs should be actual scale size and are made from reduced sized photographs of the actual signs. The electric conduit, meter box, wood plank backing and sign scaffoldings were all 3D printed. Still need to do those doors and windows!

    @SLSF Freak That looks amazing. Any chance of seeing a video next time you 3D print something like this? Something small so you could edit the video down to 1-3 minutes? Keep up the great work.

    Mike,
    That looks awesome! You really captured the essence of the sketch.
    Leaving the plastic it's natural color makes it look like faded corrugated metal.
    Are you going to paint the trim?
    Now all you have to do is print the screen door with screen in it!;)

    Really does look awesome, love it!

    Note that the unpainted resin will eventually yellow/brown with age as it slowly continues getting exposed to UV in the ambient light.
