Bit of sanding?  Or sanding the whole thing, trimming, and trying to cover up faults?

Depends. The images on their site are actually a pretty good representation of what you can get with a little trimming. But they are cheap and 3d printed, don't always fit together as tightly as one might like, and they tend to look the part.
Good news is the lab boys say the symptoms of asbestos poisoning show an immediate latency of 44.6 years. So if you're thirty or over you're laughing. Worst case scenario you miss out on a few rounds of canasta, plus you've forwarded the cause of science by three centuries. I punch those numbers into my calculator, it makes a happy face.

Anyone familiar with z-scale from https://www.outlandmodels.com/index.php?

Chinese 3D printing, they had various sellers on Amazon and Ebay found a 4.5 star review I just do not know about trusting it.

Nice for the price. A bit over scale but work well.

DFA miniatures has Battletech designed terrain (some even adapted from the PC game):

But huge problems to deliver what is ordered. If they sometimes manage to match their promises they will be a very good source for BT buildings.

We  are looking at the CR-10s by Creality  and now that Adepticon is a no go. Well that might be the one we get.
Anybody have or use it??

Go to https://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=68227.0, they are having a 3D printer discussion there . . . disclaimer, I am an observer and that is all right now.

Looking for buildings for a city terrain map, any suggestions?

Easiest/cheapest would be to get the free Dropzone Commander buildings, best to print out on cardstock by their instructions.

Others?
Model railroad N & Z scale buildings
lots of MDF/Wood laser cut buildings you can assemble, either from the producing companies or for sale on Ebay/Amazon
3D printed buildings, either buy them from places or get the files yourself if you have a 3D printer or a friend with one.

Go here :      https://ttcombat.com/pages/dropzone-commander-resources

Scroll down to the "resources " center .

"Buildings-US paper"  gives you some easy to print stuff and "buildings" gives more variety
but you have to dig through to find stuff that works .
I've read that some people like to re-scale it by printing it at 66 % , but printing it at 55%
seemed to get a better match to the stuff on Sarna .  ( direct door to door height , as the levels are skewed
by artistic details) .
I've been making/using resin and scratch built buildings for years and JUST started using card stock the last few weeks .

It's REALLY nice to carry card stock buildings in a foam container instead of heavy resin models
back and forth from the game store .

Thing is you can use those buildings and embellish them some- like use straws for the columns and a bit of balsa wood as the eve that extends out to cover those columns.

FREX, I want to take their buildings and make them like the ruins ones they offer in resin.  So put some glue and attach bits of green flocking and 'tree' bits to the side like moss & vines have been growing up the side of the buildings as if they were abandoned.  Or cut some of the outer walls as ruins and have the edges look like they are burned or otherwise been damaged in fighting.
