Tree for architect model

Post by Pekish79 » Fri Oct 09, 2015 4:26 pm

Does anyone has any nice looking tree for architectural models

scale 1/250 (pretty tiny) or 1/100

I have been looking around and i found only the tree made with the customized tree

but i am not too crazy about them i am making my own as well but i would like to know is someone has ever done any

Those are, alas, probably not printable individually and definitely not in the groups you've shown: they're too small with perilous overhang. The nozzle will collide with the branch tips and knock them down, one by one.

The Thingiverse trees use an algorithm that tapers them from base to tip and produces chunky branches with gradual angles. Judging from the pictures, they're also much, much, much larger than the ones you want:

As a rule of thumb, you can't print object features less than a few millimeters in diameter. Near-horizontal "wires" similar to your tree branches tend to curl as successive layers of plastic cool, producing poor results.

Tiny objects and 3D printing don't mix well; perhaps your layouts could have holes for standard architectural model trees?

I know 3D printing is the universal hammer, but this is begging for a trip to the local hobby store for some model railroad parts.

Maybe something like this would be an alternative. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:217710 Each time you run the customizer it creates a new random version, so you will have a more natural look.
