3D Printed Buildings
« on: 26 October 2022, 17:51:20 »
I printed off a bunch of buildings and then, looking around, realized I had way too much stuff to paint! I still have more but this is a start.


These along with the tea shop were free from Thingiverse.



Hazen Gas was from Hardware Studios in the same set as the Burger 1st Lord. I had some mold separation on this one because I didn't add enough supports, but it was all under the canopy so it's still perfectly usable.

The rest are from the "Asian City" sets by Lazy Forger on Myminifactory.com. These have so many tiny details I felt it would be criminal not to paint it all. The more I looked the more detail I found. They looked so good I had to dress them up with signage and graffiti. The graffiti comes from a set of decals I found for Z scale model railroads. The signs come from the internet. I have no idea what most of them say, but they look cool.









This big apartment building didn't print correctly on the back, so I painted a mural on it rather than waste such a big casting. The rest of the building came out perfectly.


Some rooftop details. Amazing stuff on these. The stairs go all the way down to ground level, and each floor has a hallway off the stairs with a door at the end.


I wanted these to look pretty grubby and run down. I washed them with "Starship Filth" oilbrusher and left it grimy and streaky. I plan to do some little street templates for them once I get the rest painted.

Great job and thanks for the inspiration.  I have some Outland Models terrain I bought a few years ago that I'd like to paint in a similar manner.   :thumbsup:

They look fantastic. May be printed, but I really like scratch building parts from various electronics.

I love the details.  It's just amazing, really. 
I take smaller details are labels or stickers some kind, like Homer Simpson Japanese soup advertising sign.

These have so much character that I could no longer resist. Now I want more! Everyone at my last game was asking about them. Thank you again for the share!!

Character is an understatement... these buildings are a reminder that 3D printing is ALSO an art!  8)

Awesome buildings !

I've REALLY been thinking about getting the asian city sets ,but I don't want those
little shacks .
My cities are go big or go home in the middle with a small amount of
lesser buildings at the edges . I just want the BIG asian buildings to make
a China town in the big part of town . You know-so I
can have things hanging and signs everywhere on taller buildings .
I'm still considering it though .

I have some new buildings and a surprise find that I'm working on .
When I get them done I need to find a new site to host my pics and make
a few terrain threads .
