This modular BugHouse is designed to fight back the global decline of insects! It was modeled for the #Hope3D Design competition and therefor has different parts, some easy to print on small printers (like Body1 and Body9), some more suitable for bigger printers and better quality (like Body3 and 6).
The base is made with the 5 parts, Body1,2,3,4 and 5 and fit together easily but to make sure it doesn't falls apart cause of sunlight, rain and other environment factors some glue is recommended. The roof part, Body5 has some tappered inclines so rain washes of it easily and the insectmodules stay dry.
