I agree with what Ryan said. You will want to make sure you follow the infill recommendations. There are a lot of stressful areas that will crack of you try to cut corners. How accurate is your printer as far as size? If you have not printed a test cube or something similar and measured it you might want to before you print a bunch of tight fitting parts that don’t fit.
Have fun with your colors and start thinking about what router you will use and look for the different mounts and dust shoes. A lot of people (including myself) are using the DW660 by Dewalt. It is powerful enough and cost effective. There is a thread that @karl has that show how he modified an existing dust shoe to work with the DW660.
Good luck and keep us posted
