All models made by me are always printed out first so that I know the details on the 3D model are visible after printing. Creating a 3D model with sharp and tiny details will make a very nice model, but it is not possible for the 3D FDM printer to physically create these details and in most cases you end up with less detail. Every detail visible on these models are guaranteed to be visible on the 3D printed model, even with a 0.2mm layerheight.
I also find out in this way that some models have difficulty printing, when I come across these problems I can adjust it afterwards or divide it into several parts so that this problem is solved.
The total kickstarter consists of 9 buildings and a seamless connectable wall design including 2 different type of towers. To expand this, there are 15 stretchgoals available that yield a total of 20 large to very large models,size differing from a market stall to a fortress, and a large number of small models.
The models are all designed for 28mm tabletop games, but can of course be rescaled in the slicer software.
Not only the outside of all the models is designed but also the inside consists of its own design.
The picture below shows the overall detail of the models featured in this kickstarter.
A free example model can be downloaded on my thingiverse page: https://www.thingiverse.com/3Dlayeredscenery/designs
The possible pledges are subdivided into 6 packages shown below:
- Civilian pack, consist of 5 small to medium sized buildings.
- Business pack , consist of 2 large , 1 medium sized and a small building.
- Defence pack, consist of a seamless inter-lockable wall design, including 2 different towers.
- The All-inclusive pack, consist of all packs above, including the unlocked stretchgoals.
- The Earlybird all-inclusive pack for my first supporters, this is a limited pledge.
- The All-inclusive distributor pack, for those who have a business in selling 3D printed models, this is a limited pledge.
The civilian pack
This pack features the five following models shown in the picture above. Every model consist of several files to ease 3D printing. In this package there is also the possibility to create an even larger building with the 2 large buildings. (This pack does NOT contain the unlocked stretchgoal models).
The business pack
This package is all about buildings with a function and contains a tavern, village chapel and a blacksmiths house with its workshop. The props featured in the workshop ( the anvil, anvil stand and bellows) can be printed separately. The tavern in this photo is not the end result and will be updated to ensure the best possible detail. (This pack does NOT contain the unlocked stretchgoal models).
The defense pack
A village without a wall is open to attacks from outside, the defense pack serves to prevent this. The defense pack consists of different wall and tower pieces that can be attached to each other with a locking-clip (also delivered with this pack). This enables the player to create their own walls instead of having a standard design. All the details are seamless to minimize the borders. (This pack does NOT contain the unlocked stretchgoal models).
The gatehouse consist of multiple parts to minimize printing time and making it possible to open ,and close if necessary, the gate itself.
The all-inclusive pack
The all-inclusive pack consists of all previously featured models and also gives access to the unlocked stretch goals which are shown below. The unlocked stretch-goals will be designed after their respective goal is achieved, and afterwards supplied to you.
Last but not least, the All-inclusive distributor pack
This package gives you the option to sell printed models in your (online) store. A license will be shared with you, stating all legal terms connected to this. This includes, for example, the duration of the contract, unique contract number and the relevant person for whom the contract is intended.
Introduction of stretch goals
As mentioned before, so-called stretch goals are added to this kickstarter, these stretch goals are delivered to the supporters of the all-inclusive pledge at no extra cost.
With an increasing campaign, stretch goals will be unlocked in the form of 3D models at certain total pledge amounts. These models are designed by me and delivered within one year after the end of the kickstarter.
The stretch goals are shown in a simple sketch in which not all detail is present. However, no right can be derived from these examples and the exact design of a model can change when I start working on such a model. However I assume there will be no drastic changes unless there are suggestions.
The models that are unlocked by their stretch goal are shown below. The stretch goals are discussed individually with their example sketch below this summary.

Before viewing the individual stretchgoals please take note that these goals are no longer recent, for the new stretchgoals please view the list above.
These roofs will be designed for all models featured in the civilian pledge and the blacksmith and tavern. They are interchangeable with the wooden shingle roofs that are currently present on the designs.
3 completely different market stalls are designed. Various goods can be placed in these market stalls, so there is no need to print a new market stall for each type of good.
The carpenter's house will be provided with a supply place to store wooden planks, beams and logs. There will also be a workplace in the home to practice their profession.
The lumberjack cabin will be made as a log cabin with a stock of logs, and matching props.
The butcher's house will be provided with a workshop where the meat is prepared. There will also be several pieces of meat present in and around the home and workshop
The broken wall pieces will get the same connection as the already made walls and towers so that they can easily be connected to this.
The broken tower pieces will get the same connection as the already made walls and towers so that they can easily be connected to this.
The mill will be provided with a large blade with wicks. A home will also be attached to the mill.
The stable will have an inside and outside place. There will also be a storage place for hay and other goods.
The destroyed buildings will be completely redesigned and not derived from previously made models so that it is a real addition and not a copy. The buildings will take on different sizes. For example, there will be a considerably destroyed building whose roof is no longer visible and most of the debris reach to the ground. A building of which a part of the first floor, and a small part of the roof is still present. And a building of which several floors and roof are still visible, but still very destroyed.
Building 1 will be unlocked at a goal of 21000,-.
Building 2 will be unlocked at a goal of 22500,-.
All buildings are unlocked at the goal of 24500,-.
The church will undoubtedly become a center of the city. The building will extend beyond the dimensions of any other building, making it a real eye-catcher. The interior of the church will be just as graceful as the exterior.
The fort will look much more compact in design than previously made designs. In this, walls, buildings, towers, stairs, and gate houses will merge into one. This model can eventually be used as a standalone scenery or miniature warfare fort, or as the last defense of the city.
- Way beyond expectations
If the goal of stretch goal 15 is exceeded beyond all expectations, additional stretch goals can be formulated by suggestions from backers so that this kickstarter is used to its limit.
Risks and challenges
There are no risks associated with pledging this kickstarter. The models featured in the available pledges are provided at the end of the kickstarter. The featured stretch goals 1 to 13 are made after achieving the relevant goal and are delivered no later than 1 year after the end of the kickstarter. However if stretchgoal 14 and 15 are achieved beyond my wildest expectations, these designs will most likely take beyond this year and will be no later than 1,5 year after the end of the kickstarter. I am still a student and therefore, unfortunately, I cannot put in the amount of time that I would like.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
