MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
Our Birdhouse project is designed to snap together (to aid in assembly/still requires glue) and can readily be made in one offs or up to about 24 houses nested per 4'x8'. The floor is perforated for draining and the roof/sides w/eaves are a common peice for simplicity & asthetics. Even left nested in the plywood, the project makes a great & affordable gift for people to build and finish!
The project files provided below include the VCarve project file, the Fusion 3D model & rendering project (.F3D), as well as CAD-independent DXF drawing for each of the panels. Watch the included video to see how we made ours and a overview of how to use Vectric VCarve or Aspire to enable higher-volume production workflows.
What You'll need to make your own
6mm (.25") plywood of your choice (or plastic/other materials of a simular thickness)
5/16" or 1/4" (2.5" long) wood dowell for the pirch
