About

Dunkley Designs is a collection of 3D printable modular tiles/cubes to be used with tabletop Role Playing Games. The tiles/cubes use a 2.5" design to allow extra space for your miniatures. The tiles/cubes connect together using a simple pin design.

All backers will receive the necessary .stl files to print with your own 3D printer. No physical pieces are included.

  • Dwarven Tiles (DW)
  • Mayan Tiles (MA)
  • Pyramid Tiles (PY)
  • 4 Square Tiles (4S)

  • Herringbone Tiles (HB)
  • Long Wooden Tiles (LW)
  • Radial Tiles (RD)
  • Wooden Tiles (WD)
  • X Lattice Tiles (XL)

Pin System

I went with a simple pin design to connect any tiles or cubes together. Horizontal connections use a tri-pin design while vertical connections use a diamond pin design.

All backers will receive all Pin files automatically. 

Because I can't predict your 3D printer settings, there are three different sizes of each pin so you can find the right fit for you. It is recommended to use a loose fitting pin, as to reduce the risk of the pin breaking.

Possible Combinations

The best thing about funding all sets is the ability to mix and match the pieces to create unique structures and looks. Here are a few possibilities:

 

 

You can go nuts combining various types together to make interesting looking towers

Funding

This campaign has the following reward tiers:

  • Tile Sets ($15)
  • Stair Cube Set ($15)
  • Pyramid Cube Set ($20)
  • Mayan Cube Set ($30)
  • All Sets ($75)

The All Sets tier is really your best option as all of these designs are meant to be used together. If all Stretch Goals are met, you will have hundreds of files to print, mix, and match together to make a ton of different structures for your tabletop gaming.

If you want to fund multiple reward tiers instead of the All Sets, then choose one and increase your pledge amount to account for the others.

For example: If I want the Tiles Set and the Mayan Cubes Set only, I could select either reward option and set my pledge at $45. After the campaign ends, you will receive a survey to let me know what sets you purchased.

There will be no Pledge Manager/changing pledge after the campaign ends, so all your funding needs to be finalized beforehand. Depending on the success of this campaign, I will be looking into options to sell my files outside of Kickstarter.

File Inventory

Due to the high number of files, I have created the following Google Spreadsheet to organize it all.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GRLBbjEXHP5QuDbvAUmF6IUM-EIjGY0aeCmwYiAiiEw/edit?usp=sharing

This spreadsheet also shares printing information and details on the various files. Make sure to click on the different tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet.

Pictures are everything, so I've taken a screen capture of every file in Cura (Printing Splicing Software). You can view those pictures here:

Risks and challenges

This is my first Kickstarter, so I'm new to all of this, but all files that I'm offering in this campaign are already completed, so there is little to no risk that you won't receive your rewards.

My biggest hurdle is getting the .stl files to you, which is a small feat. Once again, all files are already created, saved, and backed up offsite, so once the campaign ends, I just need to transfer them to you and you can start printing.
