Hello Race Fans! Welcome Back to the show!
What you see here are highly detailed miniature models optimized for 3D printing. They're modeled to look amazing at ~Z-scale (20+/- mm) which is where most car game miniatures sit.
Most miniature cars available right now give you one choice...and a lot of times they're generic models with low detail. There's been a huge movement in the industry for game miniatures to look amazing and have insane detail so why are car games left behind? That's no longer a necessity.
If you have a game with bad models, replace them!
I don't want to limit you to Z-scale...maybe you need them larger or smaller. That's why you'll receive the actual STL 3D printing files rather than physical models. You can freely scale these up or down depending on your game needs and printing capabilities.
I'm using old computers and outdated software to make these. Funding from this project will allow me to upgrade the computer and buy some modern software to speed up and improve workflow. Faster production means more cars, spaceships, airplanes, terrain, etc etc etc!
The initial All-In package will contain the following 10 models in STL format. More models will be shown below as Stretch Goals.
I have a lot of models ready to print and a whole bunch more in various states of preparation to release as Stretch Goals. Categories will include models in the style of;
- Formula 1
- more to come....
I will post pictures of prints as the campaign continues in the Updates; I plan to show each model printed successfully. I will continue to tweak models as I print them to make sure they're optimal and error free once released to you. There's a lot of work still to do but I'm confident we'll get there!
Stretch Goal 1: Heads Up!
All Open cab vehicles will come in 2 versions; with and without Drivers!
Stretch Goal 2: Rally
Stretch Goal 3: Le Mans
Stretch Goal 4: Vintage
Stretch Goal 5: Formula 1
Stretch Goal 6: Vintage Muscle
Stretch Goal 7: Vintage Race
Stretch Goal 8: Euro
Stretch Goal 9: Modern Muscle
....More to come?...
Add these models to any STL File pledge level!
Civilian Pack 1: Fill the Parking Lot!
Semi Pack: Because they're AWESOME!
Rail and Semi: FREE for those who add the above two Add-Ons!
*Add-Ons are not included in any pledge level; to add one or more packs, open up the Pledge Manager and increase your pledge by the amount shown on the pack(s) you want to add.*
***Special Note: Add-Ons are for STL File Pledges. For Print Pledge, add $3/vehicle in Add-On 1 and $5/vehicle in Add-on 2 and 3***
- Models are for personal use only and may NOT be used for commercial purposes.
- Models are created at ~Z scale and finalized at 20-25mm which is where they will show the best detail.
- You are receiving STL files which can be used to 3D print; there is no physical reward.***
Risks and challenges
Risks are minimal. These models are a work in progress but many are already print tested and proven as per the pictures above. There's a lot more work to do to get them finalized but I'm hammering them out as fast as I can.
Funding this project will greatly speed up the process and get your models to you faster.
The biggest risk is in being able to set your printer up properly to get good results, but anyone with a 3D printer who is serious about it should be able to dial their machine in.
*** I've added a Physical Model Pledge level. Shipping for those can be calculated using information in the FAQ
This Pledge Level is limited as I currently have one (1) resin printer.
