3D model description

Designed in France, this cat house is thought by designers to offer to your pet, its own cosy nest which will bring him comfort and safety during the long hours of rest which he needs. The primary intention of this kennel is to become a real decorative element for your home that will meet the needs of your pet.

To print this cat house to scale 1 in one go you can use a large volume printer like Creality CR10 5s or Tronxy X5 or Wanhao duplucator 9.

If you don't have a large format printer you can also print it in several parts with a 200 x 200 x 200 mm print format printer , such as the dagoma discoEasy 200, and glue them together.

If you have a large format printer and print in multiple parts, you can even build a kennel that can measure up to 1 meter wide by 80 cm high. Very large cats or even dogs will appreciate it.

If your pet is not very large, you can reduce the size of the print, however, we advise you not to reduce beyond 70% of the original size, in order to maintain a large enough opening. At 70% the input will be 129 x 123 mm.

3D printing settings

This cat house can be printed in one piece or in several parts depending on the size of the printer you have. At scale 1, the dimensions are: a width and depth of 45cm and a height of 33cm.

We get a good impression with these parameters from Cura :

-nozzle 0.4 mm,

-coat height 0.2 mm,

-wall thickness 0.8 mm,

-top/bottom thickness 0.8 mm,

-filling density 6%,

-filling pattern Gyroid,

-speed 32 mm/s for the wall, filling speed 60 mm/s,

-activate shrinkage 6.5 mm/s, shrinkage speed 25 mm/s,

-cooling fan speed 100 %,

-no support.

To improve the finish, I suggest aligning the Z-seam to an edge (Cura Z seam alignment > Sharpest corner or user specified).

We mainly use Polyterra PLA (210° nozzle, 25° bed) for matte finish and cardboard coil, but other PLAs like , Amazon, ICE, Esun, Sunlu, formFutura, ColorFab, etc. work well too.

I print large volumes on a Creality CR10 max and a Tronxy X5SA 400, and small sizes on my first printer a Dagoma DiscoEaesy 200. All of these printers are capable of printing my designs without support.

For a better rendering and very good precision of assembly, we advise you to print the parts in the same position as on the STL file provided.

Regarding multi-part printing, depending on the size of your printer, you will probably need to rotate the part around the Z-axis so that it can fit entirely on the platen.

All files, to print in one piece or multiple parts, are included in the download.
