This resource introduces the use of RapMan to produce architectural models. Examples include a Cathedral and a Greek temple.
Examples used in this resource can be downloaded as .stl files from here...
rfa.arch (don't know his/her real name) has had considerable success printing models of tall buildings see this tread on the forum Tall Buildings. The files were downloaded from Google Sketchup 3D Warehouseand exported as .stl files. To do this you need to install a ruby script for sketchup, see Plugin
rfa.arc has also provided a .stl file of the Empire State Building that you can try as a starter.
- Media:Empirestate.stl This file may need to be scaled and repaired
- Media:Empire_State_Building_small.stl This file should be ok and will fit on a RapMan
