BACKGROUND


The one thing which is missing from the current miniatures and wargaming market is a standard system for individuals to display their work. CROWSTEPS was developed to fill that void, the goal was to design a simple and beautiful modular system which can display a wide array of different figures with a large diversity of base dimensions all within a common footprint.

This system is comprised of 100MM X 100MM modules which expand either horizontally or vertically, offered in 3 different styles. CROWSTEPS: STONEHAVEN, CROWSTEPS STEAMWORKS and CROWSTEPS: CYBER. 

The files will be delivered in .STL format to be downloaded and printed at home on your 3d printer

This modular display system comprises of components in which rest the base of your figure. The components then rest adjacent to the plinth which is used to expand your display vertically or horizontally.

 

Each set includes; component, top cap, tall cap, single tile, display plinth, blank plinth, double plinth and a set of single inserts to use with the display plinth.

 The display plinth and single insert can be combined to create a diorama which you can incorporate into your display

 

 

The purpose of this kickstarter is to raise funds in order to build a webstore so we can offer the files for sale on a wider market, by backing today you get first access to the files at an exciting low price which includes free stretch goals! The files will be delivered in .STL format to be downloaded and printed at home on your 3d printer

 Available in three styles; delivered via downloadable .STL file

 A multitude of different concepts were created and explored, each concept tested different geometry, display height, display footprint, base sizes and display orientation.

 After the first round of design and an unsuccessful Kickstarter we’ve come to this new strategy, to offer the files stylized for people to 3d print at home.

 We've spent a lot of time testing different modelling techniques and designs to get the right look so once the pieces are printed, painted and displayed, they are the perfect compliment to your collection of figures  

 Licensing 

Standard US copyright applies; a copyright notice is affixed to each model.  

After purchasing the files, they are for your own personal use and not to be used for any commercial purposes.  

You may print the files as many times as you’d like.  

You may photograph and share photos the models.  

You cannot sell the .STL files.  

You cannot sell the printed models.  

You cannot share the .STL files.

Risks and challenges

The risk for this project will be pretty low, the core 3d models have already been created and test printed extensively. as seen above they print wonderfully and look great painted.

we have tested the models on a few different 3d printers, but since we cannot test print every single .STL file on every single consumer grade 3d printer and slicing software currently available on the market, we have offered samples of the files so people can test print on their own 3D printer and slicing software before backing the project.

The delivery will be digital via Backerkit, and the models will be available after payment is received and stretch goals released in January 2017
