Here is my first attempt at making a building from scratch. I have no previous modeling experience apart from printing a building that I found on the internet. I designed this one in Blender, making separate elements. The walls, siding, corner posts, windows, door, and the standing seam roof were all made as individual pieces and assembled in the computer from those parts. For example, the siding elements were each applied individually to the walls, just as one would do when building a house. Then I 3D printed it in Z-scale. The building measures 53.15 x 25.3 x 18.7 scale feet. There are issues. First, the closeup of the building shows ragged painting. This bothers me a lot. I did a lot of microsurgery during my career, manipulating cells and tissues less than a millimeter in size, sometimes much less. I was known for my steady hand and performed much without a micromanipulator. My hands shake now as you can tell from the botched job around the windows. I hope that with practice I can compensate. Thank goodness the flaws are much less visible when the building is on the layout. I still don’t know how high to elevate it, either by raising up the “ground” around the roadbed or adding a foundation to the building. Perhaps someone can give me advice about that.
