A warm welcome on the "Rolling pins for making tabletop terrain" project page!
What is the goal of this project?
The primary goal of this campaign is to manufacture the molds for more rolling pins. So if you see some interesting parts help me to get them produced for you out of resin.
You can also fetch the STL package and print the rolling pins for yourself.
Wtf are rolling pins???
Resin or plastic parts which are rolled with firm pressure over modelling clay/putty etc. or XPS FOAM to quickly create a texture. So you can make a wall or street in a matter of seconds. The texture depth depends on the pressure applied and on the foam density.
Resin printed, FDM printed, Resin cast rolling pins:
Each rolling pin is 120x20mm in its base dimensions. The rolling width is 110mm. 5mm border on the sides.
Rolling Pins (each resin cast rolling pin for 10 EUR):
8100 - roman street
8105 - stone arcs
8106 - stone arcs with border stones
8110 - smalls stone arcs
8115 - small regular cobble stone
8120 - small cobblestone with 2 side rows of stones
8121 - small cobblestone with 3 borderstones
8125 - small cobblestone without borderstones
8130 - broken stone wall
Resin, FDM, Resin cast rolling pin
8135 -Big cobblestone with 2 border stones
8136 - Big cobblestone with 3 borderstones
STL Bundle (30 EUR)
You get a ZIP file with an STL file of each of the above rollin pins to print it for yourself.
I advice to print it horizontally with nearly 100 infill to get them sturdy enough to apply enough pressure while rolling and not cracking the rolling pin!
We will look if this campaign gets some attention and maybe we get some more designs ready. The STL pledge will always get the new STL files.
In the future there will be an embossing machine to apply steady pressure on foam slices. Maybe i will add this to the campaign later on:
500 EUR - Embossing machine add ons
The first working prototype is now ready! Please check the add on section for more info!
Embossing machine prototype add on (STL) - (10 EUR)
You get all the STL files for the shown embossing machine and all updates in the near future to get it running as shown in the videos.
You will need some additional parts to get it running (some screws, some wood base).
Embossing machine prototype add on (physical product) - (30 EUR)
You get one fully assembled embossing machine with a rolling pin of your choice to work as the video above shows.
Material is a mixture of 3D printed/resin casted/metal/wood parts.
At the moment you cannot easily switch the rolling pin cause it is screwed to the wheel and between the holders. It is possible to unscrew the wheel connector and screw it to another rolling pin. But you need some crafting skills and tools for that.
I can provide additional adapters for other rollin pins at the cost of 2.50 EUR each. Just add the required EUR to the pledge.
An enhanced version of the embossing machine with easier handling will be offered in the future.
More STL Add-Ons:
STL Bases (10 EUR)
Tabletop bases square/round 20, 24,25,28, 25x50 rider base, 50x50 and 100mm round base. These bases are CAD designed and without texture. If you need a special one leave me a comment.
Flightbase, 50mm width and height
Or a 50mm base for a 5mm acryl rod:
STL Alien Plants (10 EUR)
STL Hoppers (10 EUR)
STL Asteroids (5 EUR)
STL Alien eggs (5 EUR)
Sea urgin and seastars - 5 EUR
Pyramid (2 EUR)
STL Flower Tower (5 EUR)
Since the postage depends on the weight of the ordered physical parts i charge the surplus postage after the campaign ends for all other countries but germany. In germany the postage will be 6 EUR whatever you order. For europe there should be no additional postage over 15 EUR. For other countries outside europe this will be around 7 EUR per kilo over the first payable via paypal. Sorry but that what DHL charges me.
A rolling pin has a weight of around 40g so 20 rolling pins can be shipped for 7 EUR. I cannot correct this in the pledges.

Risks and challenges
Risiken und Herausforderungen
As far as i can see the only risk for the backers is a delay in manufacturing the master molds or in the delivery time.
Since i am doing the molds and all other work on my own i don't need expensive steel molds but if the demand is high i need more time to deliver the physical products.
Physical pledges will be shipped in the order of the pledges. Digital pledges will be prepared for a download after the campaign ends.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
