I printed at 1:12 scale. First print worked ok without support; second time I tried it the print turned to spaghetti when it reached the seat. Also I had to print one chair at a time. But they look great and 1:12 is possible with care. Maybe a printer tuneup would help.

if your using a davinci the table can be tightened by slipping a very thin washer between the rod sleeve and the table itself at the back right side where the table attaches to the vertical rods. great job i love queen ann chairs and furniture.

I just have to say that the video on youtube about the 3D design ten tips was really helpful to me. I saw on one of your prints that you are using a ThingOMatic (I think). I wanted to ask you how you level the platform. Thanks

Glad you found the talk helpful. The thingomatic was my first printer, though I don't use it much anymore. I used pairs 3D printed "rosettes" - you can actually see them in one of the photos here. Better still, get some springs, and only use one rosette on the bottom.

I had a few failed prints on the MakerBot Replicator 2 until I set the layer height to 0.27mm, and then it was perfect!

Hi are all the mini things you sell on your site printed on the makerbot?

Not at this time - I switched to commercial printing to deal with demand earlier this year and free up more of my time for design. I started my business with a replicator 1, and I plan to add back some makerbot printed items in the near future.

I would love to see some furnished photos!

I run G scale trains in my basement... 1:29th scale... but all my buildings, cars and people are 1:24... time to fill the houses with furniture... these are awesome...

I was staggered when the 100% version printed on my Prusa, that shouldn't have worked. :D The 200% printed absolutely fine, no raft or support, but I've got my bridges dialed in pretty well.

I have a suggestion to make them print just a hair better.

Instead of having the bottom of the cushion box all at one level, make the side crosspieces one layer below or above the front crosspieces. That way the bridge infill will go in the direction of the bridge at all times.

You are correct! I did not realize that forcing the bot to print bridges on more than one axis at a time was counterproductive. I've edited the files and uploaded an update, thanks for the tip!

Very Cool, nice job. 8-)

I love how the raft actually ends up looking like a delightful little rug underneath the chairs.

That is impressive,very well done. I've looked at furniture models just like these and thought they'd be unprintable. Clever use of printable bevel under the cushion to reduce the bridge needed for the seat.

I think the bevel helps, but the toughest part was finding the right diameter for the cabriole leg - too skinny and it snaps off, during the build or after. Too thick, and it just doesn't look elegant Once the bot connects the four legs, you should be good to go...

NICE! I love mini chairs.. definitely printing these soon.

These are AMAZING!!!

Wow looks great. I might have to work on my bridge settings before I try this one.

Very, very nice. I have a eight year old daughter that wants me to make a complete set of furniture. I don't think I can draw it. I sure hope you continue, it will influence many young people.

I'll definitely try to add more in the future! If you end up printing this in dollhouse scale (1:12) I'd love to see how it turns out.
