NIce model, I'm curious why you've left the gables off the roof? If you re-attached the gables to the ends of the roof, they'd provide support as it printed, then you'd only have two bits, the ground floor and the complete roof. Or is it so the roof overhangs?

The main reason is that I wanted the roof to overhang and having the overhang meant that you can easily locate the roof to the ground floor without worrying about using pins even though there are holes. The bottom of the gables would then need additional supports as well if part of the roof. The second reason is that I wanted to allow the person to print with whatever type of gable that was wanted. You have the option of having the gables without or with windows. I could have done the 4 possible combinations for the roof, but again that seemed like overdoing it. Also I am thinking about some other gables or extension at some point.

Really Nice looks very detailed
Thank-you for sharing
