Have you felt like your life has been missing something? Something to put on a shelf, or on your desk, or possibly front-row center in a trophy cabnet to show off your 3D printing skills? Well, look no further - print yourself a scale model of everybody's favorite restaurant, In-N-Out!
This print comes in six parts, easily put together with some super glue. Print out one "innout.stl", four "innout_awning.stl", and one "innout_roof". I was able to acheive the two-color effect using a single extruder printer by utilizing the "pause at height" plugin in Cura. The black windows and door are just paper that I pressure fit in the slots. The door, however, I had to super glue in because it fell out too easily. I colored in the logo on the front of the building with red and yellow Sharpie.
This was a really fun project I did for a school project. Hopefully someone will try printing this out - probably one of the most fun 3D projects I've ever worked on.
I didn't use supports on my print because I've calibrated my printer to be able to handle extreme overhangs and bridges like the one in the front of the building. I would definitely reccomend using supports for anyone uncomfortable with crazy things like this. Oh, and when you import the model into your slicer, the model will most likely be on its back. Just rotate it 90 degrees and print it like it would sit on a table.
The dual color effect is super cool if you know how to use it properly. I used a plugin preinstalled in Cura called "pause at height" to swap out filament mid-print. If you're on Cura like me, just go into the Plugins bar and double click "Pause at height" to add it to your print. I set the height to 12.5mm, and told it to park the head in the back-right corner. As it did that, I removed the white filament and popped in a little red. After about 15 minutes of watching the print, the height readout was 17.5mm. I manually paused the print again and did the same thing over again. I did the same thing with all four of the red/white awnings - this tine swapping at 5mm.
I created this model using SolidWorks 2015. Awesome tool.
