If you haven’t dialled in your printer perfectly you may be getting elephants feet on the tiles, which would make them not sit flat when you stick them together.
If you feel along the bottom edge of the tile (the one touching the print bed) if you feel a slight ridge then you have this problem.
You can solve it on printed tiles by judicious use of a file or a craft knife, and you can fix your printer using the instructions in https://all3dp.com/2/elephant-s-foot-3d-printing-problem-easy-fixes/October 22, 2019 at 5:26 pm in reply to: elven scenary elements #174443
These are awesome – what do you use as the baseboard?October 21, 2019 at 8:22 pm in reply to: roof printing #174353
Something I have just noticed is that the corner tiles on the roof models are the wrong way around. The tiles underlap the ones below, whereas they should overlap to keep the rain out.
It isn’t hugely noticeable – I only did because of the way I was painting with my brush strokes from the top down. Worked wonderfully for the surfaces of the tiles, and then didn’t work so well on the corners.October 9, 2019 at 11:28 am in reply to: assembly problems #172344
I found that when I hadn’t levelled the printer properly the resulting elephants feet would cause that issue.

The magnetic clips are for attaching one piece to another piece, rather than to the underlying surface.
They replace physical clips.
See https://www.printablescenery.com/2019/09/06/clorehaven-assembly-guides/ for an example of how the physical clips are used.
