Here is a full print of the light house at a scale of 1 mm per 1 foot.  I am not happy with the way the supports for the upper observation deck turned out.  Otherwise, I am very happy with it.  Originally I printed it in three pieces; the base, the main tower, and the observation deck and light.  I’ve decided to break the tower into two pieces and flip the top piece upside down for printing.  This should improve the quality of the deck supports.  I’ve also decided to increase the size by 1.6x.   The new version is printing as I type this.  We’ll see how it goes.
