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.  Click here for last month’s Kickstarters. Click here for March’s Kickstarter’s.

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

Scatter Blocks by Ill Gotten Games

This Kickstarter has 23 days to go.  This is  very different take on a modular terrain system.  This one is built around the dry-erase battle mats that are found on RPG tables.  Instead of building a dungeon with tiles, you put these blocks around to form the walls and use the battle mat as the floor.  Initially there are Stone, Wood and Technology texture blocks.
