Kickstarter Watch – Frame-Werx – modular 3D-terrain

Kickstarters related to 3D-printing terrain seem to become more and more popular and they must be very suitable for this medium as the products are electronics file and therefore not subject to rising postage costs and such. As a bonus, deliveries are often quick as development time is significantly shorter than with something that they have to produce hard copies of.
The newest to catch my eyes is Frame-Werx, and it was the clleverness of the system coupled with the possibility to use the resulting buildings in Zombicide that looks really interesting for me. 
Here you 3D-print the framework of the buildings and print the walls on an ordinary colour printer. Looks easy, is certainly cheap and the result is quite good. 
As you can see from their pics it certainly makes the gameboard look fantastic.

There will be many different 'skins' to suit many gaming 'periods'.
For more information, check their Kicktarter page. It ends on August 24th and delivers in September.

    1. I don't think so, as I already have enough terrain-files to last me and the printer a long time.
      The stuff is nice, though, and it would be fun to experiment with.

    1. I think they are just starting up so these prducts are probably just KS for now, but they should probably be available soon from whatever homepage they have.
      Being computer files there really isn't any need for a retailer.
