Traditional Buildings With Original Historical Features for 3D Printing


There are interesting collections of the architectural models that can be 3D printed on both FDM and SLA desktop machines. Crowdfunding campaigns were launched on Kickstarter featuring historical traditional buildings’ designs for 3D printing. So far there are Chinese, Slavic, Wild West, Viking, and Maya buildings’ sets published and showcased using astonishing renders. With the creator’s permission, we used a few images to publish them here.

As we suspect that there will be other civilizations’ traditional buildings featured in the future. This collection has already attracted interest of collectors, architecture designers, and even tabletop game decorators. As the “stretch goals” kept getting accomplished quickly, we saw more and more sophisticated designs emerging in the particular collections. In some cases, “stretch goals” include objects and features that do not belong to the architecture but definitely add a feel of a particular historical time frame. As an example, a “Stagecoach” object was added to the Wild West collection or a “War Boat” to the Viking collection. Below you can see a few teasers.

Traditional Chinese Buildings

This was the first campaign that attracted our attention. The collection of renders varied from basic huts to gorgeous mansions and palaces. It also includes such elements as bridges, canopies, and statues, and even a small collection of stone lanterns.

Slavic Buildings With Original Historical Features

Influenced by Byzantine architecture, all sorts of Slavic buildings have been popular in modern Western Russia and Ukraine since 988 AD.
As the project creators were born and raised in Russia, they are familiar with the historical and cultural architecture first hand. You may come across such unusual building names, like “Barin’s House”, which could be translated as the “Nobleman’s House”. Together with a big collection of buildings, there is also a Mill model.

Wild West Buildings For 3D Printing

Wild wild west, cowboys and guns. All main street buildings are in a collection: a Hotel, Gun Smith, a Bank, and even a Saloon. These models reminded us of the Holywood movie decorations. Such small-town buildings were common until the early 20 century. This collection has a few extra themed designs like a “Lone Cowboy”, a “Horse” and “The gallows”.

Viking Buildings For 3D Printing

Viking shields on the hut’s door or the roof is a must have feature in the fantasy tabletop gaming. And apparently, it has been like that historically. An additional model a “War boat” is also well decorated traditionally with the shields.

Ancient Maya Buildings For 3D Printing

These are pre-Columbian era buildings. Cracks and missing parts on the architecture, worn by time, pointing to the archaeological value of such buildings. If your project or collection needs the “ancient feel”, these models will definitely add it.
