Welcome to Modutruck. The latest Kickstarter by Watcorpdesigns
Join the Facebook group to show off your prints and discuss more about the project
This concept for this Kickstarter was to develop a range of alternative Sci-fi/ near future civilian vehicles with interchangeable cabs, wheels and backs.
Fully tested and trialled on a range of low-cost FDM printers including both Cartesian and delta styles
All files have been designed and tested to print on FDM printers without requiring supports - this means 1 less step between printing and getting a great looking model.
All files are small enough to be printed on common low cost Resin printers for those wanting maximum resolution. Even the largest fit on a standard build plate without further sub slicing.
All solid parts like Cabs will be supplied in resin friendly hollow versions
All files are broken down into various sections allowing inter-changeability between Cabs, Rears, Bases and Axels, as well as the additional upgrades (and stretch files)
If you want a civilian pick-up - done, Armoured Towtruck - simple, Milk tanker with ram bars - why not!

Run by an Engineer with extensive manufacturing and design experience Watcorp Designs has been selling FDM, DLP and traditional resin cast parts since 2016.
I do also an extensive track record of modelling since the early 90's (albeit in cardboard and green stuff and I'm sure no-one would want to buy them!) and a bad habit of buying too many plastic soldiers.
Risks and challenges
This Project is very low risk - Standard files have already been designed and the stretch goals are all concepted.
Watcorp Designs has a proven track record of delivering high quality files, on time and in full to all backers on previous Modurail Project as well as designing a large number of files robust enough to allow commercial levels of printing.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
