 Appian Way:

The Appian Way(Via Appia) was first constructed by Appius Claudius Caecus in 312BC during the Samnite wars. The road was the main factor that allowed them to concentrate their forces with sufficient rapidity and to keep them adequately supplied, a lesson that Rome was to learn well and adopt in future, throughout their empire.

Appian Way

 STRETCH GOALS

All unlocked stretch goals will be rewarded  with the pledging of any one of the three packs, Miniature pack, Roman City pack or Underworld pack and with the All In pledge. The stretch goals will be slowly revealed as the project grows with your pledges.

New stretch goals will be added along with renders and extra descriptions, so be sure to come back and review this page during its run. 

Make sure to spread the word and help us gain more backing so you can benefit from all the extra designs available through the stretch goal program.

Due to the unprecedented large amount of stretch goals that have been included in this project, we have prepared this table that describes the preliminary setup of the stretch goals. These will change as the campaign evolves. Renders and details for each individual goal will be included as the funding increases.

Risks and challenges

DIGITAL MEDIA:
We will break down all the models into smaller files and create high and lower resolution models were possible so that backers can choose the level of detail which fits their print system best.

We strive to produce models that will print with as little support and parts as possible. Some models print in one go whilst most are split up into parts which must be printed separately and then assembled. All models will be packed with their respective parts list and assembly instructions.

The file format of choice will be .STL and the models shall be zipped and made available to the user for download. The user is responsible for downloading their product and must have a valid internet connection and email with which to collect their reward, via internet download. We will keep the files on our system for at least three months after the first date of issue. The user must ensure that he collects the files within this time frame or risk forfeit.

Backers must realize that the resolution you obtain on your print is down to the system you use. Our high resolution files will give you almost render quality prints on high end SLA machines, whilst the same files will produce lesser resolution prints on standard FDM printers. At any rate, all the files have been previously tested on SLA and FDM printers and have shown satisfactory produce.

We recommend FDM Prints with at least a 400micron nozzle and 200 micron layer height for terrain. Ideally 300micron nozzle with 100 micron layer height will give you outstanding prints all round. We have also tested the files with larger nozzles, at 500 microns and decent results are possible on most prints, if the layer height and temperature is controlled correctly. 0.5(500 micron) nozzles are not recommended for miniature printing.

SLA printers should have no problems obtaining excellent resolution and finish even at 100 micron layer height although 50 micron layer height is recommended for minute sculpt detail clarity.

We supply the user with a design that has been tested on conventional home hobby printers and is proven to print.

We do not hold ourselves responsible for the production or manufacturing process of the design, this is exclusively up to the user.

Users may modify models and files at their own risk and only for their own personal use. Modified files are not guaranteed by us and as such, users do this under their own risk and know how.

The Images shown on the campaign page are just for visualization and although they may come very close, they are not an exact representation of the final design or printed model, which may vary slightly.

We reserve the right to alter any of the models shown, at any time, before delivery, with the intent of improving the design, or efficiency of production.

Commercial Licencees may 3D print our products using any layer additive manufacturing process, e.g. SLA, DLP, FDM. With the exception of the 'Miniatures' pack or any of our miniature designs. Miniatures may only be printed by licencees, for commercial use, using Fusion Deposition Modeling.(FDM)
