This model was made by assembling six 3D print parts that are glued, sanded, and spray painted. The rooms were easily printed by the dremel without support material. I then zund cut section faces out of museum board to wrap around the model and hide print seams.
In progress shot of the model before adding entourage and a frosted acrylic facade sleeve.
Similar to the exterior of the model, I cut a museum board finish for the courtyard walls, leaving holes for the protruding rooms to slip through.
By the leaving the exterior of the protruding courtyard rooms bare (without museum board covering), it allows for more light to slip through the thin 3D printed walls.
I lasercut pink acrylic furniture to create a vibrant glow and call attention to specified rooms.
The facade is a a frosted acrylic sleeve that slips on and off the model. Etched thin lines on the unfrosted side of the acrylic create a discrete layer of detail.
