About this project
SimplePolytrix has put together over 20 gorgeous 3D models available for you to download and print on your home 3D printer or printing service. These unique, highly detailed terrain pieces fit any sci fi table top scenario from strategic war gaming to role playing games. Each model is handcrafted using today's standards in 3D building software. Assurance of quality through prototype printing was done to finalize the project.
Today you can begin building your library or increase your collection of digital models for all your gaming needs as much as you wish. The purpose of this project is to allow SimplePolytrix to continue delivering quality terrain models for all genres of gaming from fantasy to modern to historical and more.
Through gracious backers, more efficient and lower cost prototype testing may be done to keep the cost at a minimum for the consumer. Better materials can be purchased, and a realization of creating resin casts production can be met. It is the company's ultimate goal to be able to provide both digital downloads and physical prints so anyone can enjoy enhancing their battlefield with Simplepolytrix Terrain.
We hope you're as excited about this kickstarter as we are! Please spread the word by sharing this on your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets so we can reach that goal! Thank you!
SimplePolytrix Collection Contents
Here are all the models you will receive if you pledge at the SimplePolytrix Collection level:
The first Stretch Goal has been revealed! City Streets is a modular kit collection featuring 7 pieces that can be reprinted for an entire urban environment! This project will unlock if the project reaches $2,500. It was originally set to $3,000, but we felt it is most important to get these pieces to the backers as easily as possible. It's more about seeing that these models are enjoyed by you. This will be included in the SimplePolytrix Collection pledge level.
City Streets - Unlocked at $2,500
Interior Facility - Unlocked at $3,500
The Interior Facility modular kit comprises of 26 total pieces that can be fitted to nearly an infinite number of layouts to suit your interior gaming needs. Flooring, half walls, and doors make up this elaborate set. This second Stretch Goal will be unlocked if the project reaches $3,500. We felt the most important thing is to get the models into the backer's hands, so this goal has been lowered. This will be included in the SimplePolytrix Collection.
A lot of wonderful people have requested to see some printed versions of the above models. While several of them can be viewed at SimplePolytrx's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/SimplePolytrix/), for those who aren't using Facebook, here are a few sample viewings.
Here are a few renderings of how the models will print. Because of their sizes, design, or complexity, they must be arranged in such a way to be optimized for printing and reduce excessive supports and unnecessary clean up.
The odd flat piece with 2 extensions in the above photo is the suspending platform that is on the backside. The extensions perfectly rest on the tops of the walls.
The tank turret can be used without the platform base for more freedom on placement on the playing field. What is unique is that the main body of the turret allows for the top portion to rest on and swivel if you leave the two pieces unglued so that aiming can be physically done.
These 3 oil tanks are joined by the piping system. Holes in the tank units allow for the pipes to fit inside and can be reinforced with a little glue.
The fence seems simple, but it must be laid down in this manner so the diamond pattern prints cleanly without major supports. The poles have slits along the sides for easier joining of the chain link portion. Once those are glued and dried, they slide right into the pre-cut holes in the base.

Risks and challenges
Just to prevent any confusion, when you pledge any level, you will receive at the end of the campaign (30 days) digital files (STL files) and not physical models. This is the universal file format every printer accepts (with the exception of older versions of Makerbot printers, which can be provided if requested). They will print as a single color. They do not print out painted like the examples shown.
This is SimplePolytrix's first Kickstarter, but we have gone above and beyond to assure it's right the first time. With 3D printing, there are variables too many to mention that may affect the quality of the print. Depending on your printer, the settings of your printer, and the type of printing material, your model may vary from the photos above as well as your friends who may print them as well. I value excellent communication, and I strive to assure your satisfaction so that after this Kickstarter has been successful, you continue to return to SimplePolytrix's store to download future models. I am always available via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and by messaging me on SimplePolytrix's facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SimplePolytrix/. There are hundreds more models to come, and I sincerely hope you consider SimplePolytrix for your go-to source of table top terrain!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
