Ooooohhhhhh, very cool!

Why not let it print for those 20+ hours?  Do you have to babysit the printer the whole time?  Just wondering how this works.

Normally I am able to just leave it printing and it will do just print away however sometimes it likes to just do its own thing and turn prints in to spaghetti or if the print doesn't bond with the print sheet it could come loose and it messes your print up (this is rare but I have had it happen).

So after I sent my dad the photos of this (as it is for him) he asked me if it was possible to do a roof that is only damaged over the damaged parts of the building. rather than reprinting the whole thing I decided to design an over roof for him. This is placed over the original design so that he has both options, ruined roof and now partly ruined roof.

Here is what the finished roof looks like.

Back to my own little project of Bolt Action Street Fighting in Normandy.

I laid out my prints on my dads table and it should be a good board once complete. We started undercoating and priming these buildings today. putting the good weather to use.

One of my buildings was designed for an ambush style game.

The Hetzer lying in Ambush to demonstrate this.

The rear of the building.

and what the un expecting victim would see.

Nice work!  So what is your setup?  What printer, software, etc?

Software is Cura (its free) for slicing and getting the G.Codes for the printer and i am currently using a Prusa I3 Mk3.

Really easy to use.
