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 first will 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 the 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 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 will be up to 1 meter wide by 80 cm high. Very large cats or even dogs will appreciate it.

If your pet is not very big, you can reduce the size of the print, however, we advise you not to reduce beyond 70% of the original size, in order to keep a sufficiently large opening. At 70% the entry 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 very nice level of PLA finish with a layer height of 0.15mm, a shell thickness of 1.2mm and a 10% fill, without support.

For a better rendering and very good accuracy 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 in multiple parts, are included in the download.

Hello, you can print All the parts without supports.

Hello! When printing this in parts, will it need supports?

Oh silly me! Yeah, I was working on this last night very late and now I was able to fit it on the first attempt. I'm not sure now if it was because I was sleepy or because a skirt added by default by Cura. Anyway, it seems it's working now! Thanks a lot for all your support! I really appreciate it.

As I said before, at scale:1 all the parts are printable on a 200x200x200 mm 3d Printer. If you can't do it, it's maby because you scale it up by error, or haven't the right angular Z position of the part, it as to be adjusted to the nearest degree.
You can also check if you dont have define a to large skirt, brim or raft.
For example, on a Dagoma discoEasy 200, using Cura, you can print each parts at scale:1 with a brim width of 6mm (not more).

My mistake. Part 8 is the one I'm not making it. But I'll keep trying. The thing is I really don't want to scale down this. It is a great model and my cats are a little bit fat.

Normaly, all the files can be printed on a 3D printer 200x200x200 mm at scale 1.
In order to check our problem, I tryied on my Cura with Ender3 parameters and there's no problem to print the part7 and the others parts.
You just have to find the right position on the tray by rotating the part around the Z axis
You can see the positionning on the tray by this link:

I'm trying to print this beauty on an Ender 3 pro (220x220x250) but I'm not able to fit one of largest pieces (piece 7 if I recall well). Am I missing something?

Cette niche a été conçu pour être imprimée d'un seul bloc sur une imprimante au format 500x500x500 type Creality CR10 5s ou Tronxy.
Pour l'imprimer sur une plus petite imprimante, il faut diviser la pièce initiale en de plus petites partie, puis les assembler.
Cette manipulation n'étant pas aisée, nous travaillons actuellement à un nouvelle version qui pourra être imprimé en plusieurs parties sur une imprimante 200x200x200.

est il possible de l'imprimer avec une imprimante witbox? (format d'impression A4)
merci par avance.

The weight is about 1,3 kg.
In order to print it without stopping, you can use a 2.4kg filament spool.

Hello, with the settings recommended above, what is the weight of the piece ? Thanks
