I got a 3D printer last October for the express purpose of making miniature furniture. I’ve made a lot of stuff, but only a couple pieces of furniture, so when @Bunny1kenobi posted her gorgeous cabinet at
I knew it was time to try more complex pieces.
My first try; smooth, flat sides, cute arched cubbyholes, and 24 drawers. I printed in plain white, then painted it.
It came out smaller than expected, less than 2" tall, and quite boring before painting…
So I started over, and printed a 30-drawer version. The drawers came out too large, so I had to change and reprint them.
Drawer knobs are beads and jewelry pins; printed in dull gold filament, then painted brown. It’s about 4.5" tall.
But I still had 30 little drawers sitting there! So I made 2 more cabinets, with fancier moldings.
These are about 3" and 4" tall. They have been painted, but don’t have knobs yet, that’s really fiddly. I tried printing knobs, but the stems all broke; have to try again.
BTW, I’ve figured a way to print a test of a single drawer and the section it goes in, so I don’t have to cuss so much.
