3D model description

Wintery scene on a mountain with a train, buildings and trees plus lots of other stuff. Idea for this started from my friend Stuwaha, she provided me with a sketch (plus a lot of invaluable feedback during the creation process) and I build from that. It has lots of traditional elements for such scenes but I also wanted to steer a bit away from most Christmas themes (the star is a compromise) making this more just a winter scene than a Christmas town, fitting for everyone!

I printed mine from Taulman T-Glase that had a nice transparent effect, and finished by simply spraying very little matte white paint for a slight snow effect. Inside I simply fitted some "fairy lights" that are sold just about everywhere cheaply, there's one building that requires some trickery to wire, but all buildings have a channel for wires underneath.


3D printing settings

No supports required.

In default size the model is: 130x168x145mm

There are lots of smaller detail so this model can't be scaled down much, depending on your printer of course. I printed mine scaled down slightly to finish in 15 hours, 0.2mm layer height, 10% infill at 50mm/s on my Flashforge Creator Pro.

Thing to note though like always with steps is to use enough top layers or higher infill, I used 5 top layers as I didn't want to up the infill. Also the lamp posts might be challenging to print, I had no problems but some of them snapped for friend of mine. If this becomes a problem I can release version without lamp posts.

EDIT: Added a file with a bit thicker lamp posts, and separate files for them if you had them break off and want to replace them with glue.

EDIT2: Added (untested) files for multimaterial printing and made the lamp posts even thicker in the original.

Creator

I'm someone who always admired artists, but never managed to create anything of my own, not untill I discovered 3D printing.
The first time I held my own creation in my hand, I knew this was my thing, and it has been ever since. Designing and especially learning HOW, is a passion for me.

Almost all my models are made to learn something in the process, and that keeps me improving and branching out to new things. A major motivation also has been the community, who have encouraged and supported my efforts to a point I never dreamed possible!
