3D model description

My daughter's Barbies have a lot of shoes, so she decided they need a cabinet to store them.

I saw lots of models for shelves and cabinets, but nothing that would print in place with working doors and no need for glue.

This one is sized as a full-height armoire for a typical Barbie doll, and pretty much completely fills the build plate of an Ender 3. Specifically it's 215 x 210 x 55 mm at full size.

The pictured cabinet includes an embossed monogram "N", but the included STL does not. I've included my messy Fusion 3D file and STEP files so you can add your own embossed monogram or make other modifications.

If you want a different sized cabinet or shelf configuration it should be pretty easy to do, or ask me in the comments and maybe I'll add it.

3D printing settings

The hinges are made with 0.5 mm clearance, which is about right for my Ender 3 Pro's limited tolerance.

Both the shelves and the back of the cabinet can be printed decently with no support if you have pretty good bridging. As you can see the shelves bowed forward a little in the middle, but there's enough of a setback to still allow the doors to close. Or of course you could always add support.

I've included test files for a single hinge, a shelf edge, and a panel of the back, so you can check your settings and calibration before committing to a full print.

I printed at 0.2 mm layer height, 20% support, and checked Cura's "Enable Bridge Settings" (under "Experimental").
