Crowdfunding Watch – 3D-printing – A modular modular dungeon/town and a magnetized modular dungeon

Two new Kickstarters this last week.
We’ve seen lots of modular dungeons and buildings, most of them OpenLOCK-compatible, just like this one.
But these modules are modular, which is really clever. You print a skeleton that you can dress in different, printed, skins. That way you minimize print-material and -time and get really effective storage.
There is also a beast-pledge where you'll get a large handful of suitable monsters to populate your dungeon with.
Certainly well worth a look if you need a printable dungeon.

A fellow Swede this time!
These dungeon-walls have slots for mini-magnets, to make them stick to magnetic surfaces.
A clever and interesting concept, even I it isn’t for me as I’m very much into OpenLOCK.
If it could be something for you, then there is only one thing to do: Check it out!

  2. The magnetic dungeon looked interesting, but apparently the magnet holes are in the bottom, not in the wall sides which would have been more logical.

    1. Yeah, that's my take on it also. Magnetic wall sides would obviously have been good, but getting polarity right would have been a pain

    2. Nah, if it works with Brio trains it would work with the walls. You start with one wall and then use that to get the right polarity on the rest.

    3. What would be a pain to do by hand is drilling holes that are properly centered. That is obviously not a problem with cad-designed pieces!

    4. Yep, obviously easier if it already done!
      I'll pass that suggestion to the creator.
