At Printable Scenery, we design our models to fit the specifications of most 3D Printers.
Each model is delivered as a .zip file containing folders with multiple versions of our models. For example, we often provide a small printer cuts folder to fit on small print beds and a pre-supported resin cuts folder for models suited to resin printing.
Each product page will give the information on which versions of the model are contained in the folders in the zip download.
The Main Folder
The main Folder contains the model (or model cuts) designed to fit a build-plate volume of 200mm x 200mm x 200m or more. Additional information will be provided on the product page if the files will need supports touching the build plate.
This folder contains a complete version of the model if it comes as multiple sections in the Main Folder. This will exceed build volumes for most printers, but is useful when scaling down prints for smaller scale games.
FOLDER: Smaller Printer Cuts
This folder contains the model cut to fit the build volume of a 120mm x 120mm x 120mm printer. Additional information will be provided on the product page if the files will need supports touching the build plate.
FOLDER: FDM Supported
This folder contains models with supported overhangs designed to fit a build-volume of 200mm x 200mm x 200m or more. The supports will allow the models to be printed without the need for supports touching build-plate.
FOLDER: Resin Supported
This folder contains files that have been pre-hollowed and supported to fit within a 120mm x 120mm x 120mm build-volume to make printing the sections in resin easier.
One thought on “How do we deliver STL files for 3d printing?”
Would you consider slicing files for resin printers to fit more common printer sizes? Like the Elegoo Mars.
