3D Print – Church

I love old buildings, especially churches.  They have a lot of character and details you do not find in modern buildings.  My first major 3D design project was not modeled after any one particular church building, but after numerous churches I have seen through out my lifespan.

The building was created in 3 main sections:  The foundation, the walls, and the roof.  I wanted the ability to put furniture inside the building.  I also wanted the doors to open, but the 3D print was too small to support hinges that actually worked.

The foundation include the steps, simulated wood flooring, and the cross display.  It contains groves in the foundation to hold the walls in place.

The walls contains simulated wood siding, the windows and the doors.

The roof contained the bell tower with simulated wood shingles.  The cross was printed separately and placed in the hole bell tower.

The furniture was originally designed on a larger scale and shrunk down.  But, it had to be tweaked at the small scale since any support not being at least 1 mm did not print correctly.
