3D PRINTABLE TERRAIN KICKSTARTERS – December 2017
One of the great things about our 3D printers, is the 3D terrain we can create. This is one of the primary reasons I purchased a 3D printer. Without high-quality files with which to print, the printers are kind of useless. I’m going to be listing Kickstarters by the time left in their campaigns. If I missed any, please let me know. You can find these companies and more in our 3D Terrain directory. Finally, if you are looking at getting into printing terrain, check out this guide on getting your first 3D Printer.

Note: FINISHED Kickstarters are at the bottom of the list.

WarLayer 3D Printable Terrain: Orbital Drop
This Kickstarter has 17 days to go. Warlayer was the first terrain Kickstarter I backed, thanks to a video by Greg_FL.

It’s been up for less than a day and has already blown through 2 stretch goals.
