Crowdfunding Watch – 3D-printing – Jungle Fever, Sci-fi City Terrain, Walls and Structures

The new 3D-printing-crowdfunding-year has gained momentum with four new kickstarters for this weeks round-up.

Let’s travel to the jungles of the Aztec and whatever suitable jungle-civilisation your favourite game caters for.
Here you have the chance get hold of some beautiful Mesoamerican OpenLOCK-compatible scenery that would look great in most fantasy and pulp jungle-settings.
There are some fantastic-looking structures that make my mouth water. Great stuff, well worth a look.
Get a couple of tiles for €2, the whole lot for €77, or anything in between.
There is also an option to get physical resin-pieces for your Blood Ball pitch.
This KS ends on January 22, 2018.

Another OpenLOCK compatible kickstarter (and also compatible with Dragonbite), this time from Hayland Terrain – veterans in the 3d-printing kickstarter field with five previous projects.
Here we have mostly interiors for your SF-houses, with a sprinkling of external accessories, excellent if you already have SF-buildings ready or as files.
There is also an option to get the files from the first sci-fi kickstarter, so you have somewhere to put all that furniture.
I got the files from Hayland’s last kickstarter (Fantasy) and they look great, and I really look forward to printing them.
This KS ends on January 23 2018.

More Sci-Fi, this time buildings and structures suitable for a base on a moon or asteroid.
These are without interiors and look rather realistic, or at least how I imagine a base in hard vacuum would look like.
I think these are scaled at about 1/100 scale.
This KS ends on February 8, 2018.

If you’re looking for stand-alone walls for your gaming table, then you should take a look at this.
You’ll get tons of walls and doors that seem really easy to assemble into mazes of corridors, ready to be filled with creepy crawlies of the deadliest kind.
This KS ends on February 4 2018.

  1. WoW! Those mesoamerican OpenLOCK tiles look awesome, this tiles are worlds apart from anything I have seen before in the 3D Printing scene! You can really see the historic Maya/Aztec details shining through. Got to back this one!

    1. yep, they sure are very nice. I've backed it on a modest €2 level, just to updated on the progress.

  2. Dammit, I gotta get a 3D printer lol!

  3. Thanks for kind words and the spotlight!

    1. You're welcome!
      Glad to shine that spotlight on your project.
