Home Sweet Home

The inspiration for my 3D printing of a building came from my house. I was able to make this mini replica by using photos that I took myself, as well as images from Google Earth. By using Google Earth, I was able to get a birds eye view, which allowed me to make the foundation and basic shape of my house.

Process

To start, I imported my canvases into Fusion 360. From here, I sketched my house using the rectangle and line tools, which were then extruded upwards. As well as adding a chimney and the roofs, as seen below.

Next, I sketched the windows, doors, and skylight utilizing the line and rectangle tools, as seen in the images below.

Once, all of the sketching was completed, I extruded the windows, doors, slider, and skylight inwards to varying heights to give the house dimension and depth. I even filleted the doorknobs to make them look as realistic as possible.

Finally, my design was uploaded to Cura, scaled to size and sent off to the printers, and the finished product can be seen below.
