Your buildings look great! I'm getting close to designing some of my own too.

Do you print as one solid unit? Any issues with the span of that roof or the recessed area of the front arches? Or do you fill it with a bunch of support material?

My original design cheated on the arches and the recessed areas in order to avoid using supports. This did not turn out well. I was not very happy with the result. So I redesigned the arches and recessed areas to be 100% authentic to the real building. This of course meant that I had to use support 'everywhere'. You will need to be patient removing the support material in the nooks and crannys but I was ultimately thrilled with the final result.
