3mm model

This album shows a test print of a Minecraft model that was created with Mineway's new option "Export lesser blocks". Checking this exports signs, buttons, fences, doors, etc., which are normally not included in the model.


The model was printed on a ZPrinter 650 in three different scales: 1mm per block (edge length), 2mm and 3mm. The coin was added for size comparison, its diameter is 23mm, roughly like a Quarter).


The 1mm model was shredded during the cleaning process, but I did not really expect that this scale would work.


The 2mm model worked surprisingly well. The free standing door broke during the cleaning, but otherwise the print turned out ok.


The 3mm scale worked best of all, although I damaged both the door and the fence while fixating the model.
