A New Year

If all goes well this should be the year our house is finished and we move in! We will see how things go but work has just recommenced after Christmas shutdown so there will be lots to report soon. In the meantime we had a present from our friend Olly over Christmas …

… a rather splendid 3D printed model of our new house!

As the design is done in a 3D CAD model it was relatively easy to export this in the format a 3D printer needs (.stl apparently) and then load this into the printer software. Entertainingly the 3D model is life-sized whereas Olly’s printer is only 200mm square – the model therefore had to be scaled to 0.4% of the actual building!

Even though tiny there is quite a bit of detail to see which is really rather cool; thanks Olly.
