Here is the first draft of lil pig houses i made in google sketch up. Next step is to set up printer and actually make it. These are obviously rough, rough drafts but it gave me an idea of how sketch up works. The middle wall piece will get flipped over when its done.
I wanted to add 3d extruded letters that say “floor” on the floor, and also tags on the top of the walls, and “roof” written on the roof. I wanted the word “Walls” to be cut out of the top part of the wall (negative) but couldn’t figure out how. It totally broke my mind, so that will be in the v2 test.
Those are HOTNESS! Nice work and thanks for rocking on the house segments. That will really help me get the new version of the game rolling.
Excited to see your creations and can’t wait till roles are reversed and your brain is breaking google sketch up.
Ok Here are the first things that came out of the printer.
The tiny house was my first attempt because i misjudged the scale. They are smaller than your pinky fingernail.
I made three version of the larger houses. The really detailed one had a post that broke off when i snapped it into the base. They feel higher quality when they snap together, but that one was too tight and that why part of the wall busted off. I’m gonna make it so they “glide” together, not snap together in the next versions.
I’m gonna make an print nine more of these in the appropriate color(s). They are probably about an inch wide (or a little less) each.
Its pretty fucking cool!
