About

 "This long time project is finally in final form" 

Hi guys,I am very pleased to be able to offer to you the finished 3d model in which ever variant you choose.

Three variants:

  • Full model (exterior version) .stl files ready to print
  • Full model (Exterior + interior version) .stl files ready to print
  • Full model (Exterior + interior + Board game version) .stl files ready to print 

  English board game manual  / Deutsches Brettspielhandbuch

This entire project has been a long time in the making so I am very proud to be able to announce it here,welcome Big shell.

A few measurements:

  • Big shell core 37cm width (370mm)
  • Struts 28.6cm width (286mm)
  • Bridge's 19cm length (190mm)
  • Legs 28cm height (280mm)

This model has been scaled to fit as much detail as possible but can be scaled down with your own judgement using the app of your choice.

-I highly recommend the use of printers with a print bed of at least 40x40x40 cm (for this scale),the .STL files provided have already been fully adjusted for immediate printing.

Flatpack

Above you'll see the components for a single strut (strut - A) these components have their own .STL file ready for print,a guide (with images) on how and where these parts join will be in the folder file system that accompanies the .STL files.

Bridge A-B components

The above image shows the separate components for bridge A-B,each bridge will have a similar construction,each bridge,strut and shell will come with guides for said construction making it a very easy process to follow.


 -Exterior version- 

Model of exterior

The above image shows the Exterior model version,each bridge,strut and Shell core comes in an easy to print folder system,from the strut legs to the main hex bodies to the roof details like fences,the difference between this version and the other versions is the roof is not detachable here where as the second and third versions can have their roof detached to reveal the inner floor layout or be replaced with the game board roof depending on which version you choose.


 -Interior version- 

Interior version

This version comes complete with the floor layouts accurately designed into the actual strut it'self and comes hidden under the strut roof (a nice little surprise to show off on your printed model).

The strut roof (can be seen in the first image) comes away easily and when replaced will then sit happily on top of the inside design until you are ready to unveil it to onlookers.


 -Board game version- 

Rules and explanations can be viewed or downloaded in a convenient .PDF file "HERE"

Board game roof pieces
view 2

Above you can see the board game version of this model,each board game piece fits neatly into where the default model roof would go and they can be interchanged easily for quick play.

This version has the interior floor layouts also and is the most complete of all the versions on offer here.

The game plays out using dice and pawns,moving them from one strut to another in order to dominate the entire Big shell,capturing struts give bonus troops on the reinforcement stage (View or download the .PDF HERE) for more in depth explanations).

the game play is reminiscent of the game of risk,conquering as you go,resupplying troops to your taken bases where needed,just a nice bonus to the main model I think.

The rules of the game will be included along with all the .stl files needed.

Here are a few more images for you to browse.

board game without player pieces

The bridges between each strut also come in multiple pieces for print (as shown earlier) which are also easy to assemble,the bridge comes in this form due to let's say you're like me and like to smooth and paint into the small places which is harder to achieve if it were printed in one solid piece,very helpful to do this before the actual mending together process ,Every thought has gone into the building process here as this is and should be an enjoyable experience for all.

When complete this model takes up a decent amount of space as you can imagine,so please be aware of this fact before continuing to pledge your amount.


Every pledge to make this starter a reality is appreciated twice over and will help in future projects that I'll be hopefully bringing to you here.

Risks and challenges

The challenge is complete after five months of research and image taking to designing the project.
There are no risks to this starter as the design is complete and delivery of this project is assured,There will however be a once over every day just to make sure that there is nothing else that can be done and if there is something an update to the page will be created to allow you to keep up with progress.
