BIO-CRAFT 3D Printable STL Files Miniature Gaming Terrain

$15,160

We are very excited to present BIO-CRAFT in an affordable STL format for gamers with 3D printers. I spent a great deal of time and energy on this project and hope that it finds an audience. I love to make bio-mechanical art and play tabletop games. The BIO-CRAFT line of gaming tiles are inspired by my love of surreal art by H.R. Giger and many science fiction movies I still marvel at watching. 

For those of you without a printer, like me, check out this link for 34 of the best online 3D printing services of 2019. Companies which do printing on demand. You just upload the file(s) and pick the material you would like it to be printed in. They have all sorts of durable plastic materials even several metals as an option. Imagine BIO-CRAFT in silver!

ALL STL files will be sized in millimeter for easier printing accommodation.  

Cheers -Jason A. Hite of Hite Studios Ltd

MOTHERSHIP a Sci-Fi Horror RPG is a great game to play with BIO-CRAFT tiles.

Risks and challenges

This is our 3rd Kickstarter. We were very successful with the Surreal Dice Tower and have shipped out over 400 pieces to happy backers! Our second and third Kickstarters were both for Bio-Craft with physical pieces and a very high funding goals to pay for the expensive tooling and manufacturing costs. Sadly they did not fund. However, now we have only STL files to contend with and do not anticipate any major problems as these file will be in a download link for backers.

As for you printing these pieces, we cannot 100% grantee they will work on your particular set-up. We have tested these on several printers (low and high-quality) with success, but it's impossible to test them on every printer in the market, past and present. Unfortunately, we cannot provide any technical support for your prints. However, the files you will be provided have all been tested as the photographs are of all the printed parts. We will have a facebook group community page you are welcome to join for anyone to share their print and terrain projects and get help from other BIO-CRAFT makers.
