3D printable terrain kickstarters – August 2017
This is the first monthly Kickstarter Listing. 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. But, we need files to print. Without high-quality files with which to print, the printers are kind of useless. It seems that Kickstarter is one of the primary ways to get one’s name out there, and right now our 3D terrain enthusiast community has 5 Kickstarters that are active and one ended. I’m going to be listing then 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. Check out September 2017’s Kickstarters.
This kickstarter has now ended and unlocked 7 stretch goals. It includes 4 buildings from the campaign and 5 more from stretch goals plus other scenery. This is a very thematic wild west set. Included are some houses, Sheriff’s Office, General Store, a stagecoach, “The Undertaker”, Bank, Saloon, Grand Hotel, Blacksmith, Horse Stable, and a Church + Cemetery. Have a look at the Kickstarter to see other stretch goals.
This kickstarter is 3 days out, and is a somewhat “simple” Kickstarter in that it really has two goals. A Mayan Ziggurat and Egyptian Pyramid. There is more to it, with the Mayan set you can mix and match walls. One thing I really like about this particular KS, is that it uses a 1.25″ space design. That is what I use for my dungeon tiles. He shows some different possibilities where you can mix and match. Where things get interesting, is the dungeon tiles he will make. From the Pyramid to many other tiles. It is a pretty impressive and diverse set. So far, 5 stretch goals have been unlocked.
This Kickstarter has 7 days to go. This is an interesting sci-fi bundle that has 4 “pieces”. The first, is thorns and biomass. These are additional pieces to go on to terrain. Next, is sci-fi dungeon tiles. Next are bridge, ramps, and crate. Finally, there is a sci-fi tower. This kickstarter has a bunch of diversity giving you a wide swath of items to work with. This one has already crushed several stretch goals and seems to be going strong.
This Kickstarter has 10 days to go. This one has a number of tiles for different sci-fi settings. From Mining Facility, to Medical Bay, to Cargo Bay. All of these also include accessories that would fit into the buildings you are creating. If I am not mistaken, these are multi-level buildings as well. I do like the simplicity of this Kickstarter. If it funds, you get this. Plus, there are tiers for getting in on their previous campaign or both of their previous campaigns. It looks like the stretch goals have been met on this one.
Here is another Kickstarter from the prolific Printable Scenery people. It has 17 days to go. This has a certain Grimdark future look to it. It will be interesting to see where this Kickstarter goes. I’m thinking this could be awesome scenery for a certain underhive game that is coming out soon. In just over an hour, this campaign has crushed 7 stretch goals, in the few hours it has been live.
There are 19 days to go for this Kickstarter, and this campaign is all about the ships. There are 7 designs that represent historical ships from around the world. There are a few stretch goals that work well for this, to populate your ships as well. The quick prints look decent and i think these models would look good on a gaming table. There have been 6 stretch goals unlocked on this one.
What if I can’t Print 3D Terrain?
For those of you in this boat, I created a guide on how to get prints done if you don’t own one, or there are a selection of printers that would be great for this kind of work.
