With the success of previous Sci Fi 3D printable Stl files behind us WOWBuildings has sought out and commissioned the help of a legend of our industry Iain Lovecraft, and we are delighted to expand our range further by offering and Aliens theme for this KS.

Can I add I use the word aliens as creatures from outer space and not as some of us older people will assume a direct link to anything else.

From the Terra forming outpost to the Alien eggs and corridor systems and all fit together with Dragon Lock.

We will be offering the usual fantastic bag of goodies, but with Iain on-board as an invited designer, we can offer more of the Alien landscape detail and even some miniatures to go  along with the usual buildings and vehicles, all of which are highly detailed.

                     BASIC TICKET HOLDER REWARDS 

[ALL BELOW DIGITAL 3D PRINTING FILES ONLY]

To start with this KS will follow a linear path, we will try and give you the build files that follows the storyline, I know myself well though, so I will wander off track....; but once again guys, add you ideas and we will see what we can do.

I like to add new ideas to my KS projects each time (and with Iain Lovecraft onboard that stays the same), some are crazy like the massive ship in the previous KS, others less so but more innovative (hopefully). so with that in mind in this KS its the corridors, they will be the usual straights, L section, X section, T section, Y section these will all have pipework and detailing in the floors and walls with slotted sections all along them, this is where the idea comes in, i (alomng with Iain)  have designed various wall tiles and floor tiles of all different types and looks so you can choose which ones you want for them, these easily click in and out so can be swapped for damaged or just change of type.

so lets get started with the pictures of the Basic Ticket backing

all of these corridors will fit together with DRAGON LOCK


Corridor Tile Set.[BASIC SET]

All the tiles shown below come in Dragon lock format.

This is just some of the tiles that make the floors and walls, doors and even level ladders, more will be added before the KS ends so that several types of wall styels can be used

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 wall tile sets

floor tile set

door sets

the vented wall is so you can attach air duct sections to create crawl spaces, also from this you can see the simple click in system that allows the tiles to be clipped on and off, the floor tiles work in the same way, the doors simply lift out for open via the top deco part you see that acts as the handle to lift them out

We have tried to give a comprehensive set of walls to fit your needs and give you option to layout however you like

the walls have pipework and detailing that is hidden behind the click on tiles or left exposed, same for the floors that have pipework running along them

different detailing on the straights offers a vary in options

others are specific for what they are such as level ladders and access hatches

so you start with a bare but detailed corridor

and you click in the tiles you want for the look you want

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Landing Pad Set. [BASIC SET]

The unique landing deck and raised drive off platform is where the journey begins

 PLanet Surface, 'Marscape' Tile Set.[BASIC SET]

Risks and challenges

With the collaboration of WOWBuildings and Iain Lovecraft we are taking a step forward in detail, these will be thoroughly checked as usual and the after service will be unaffected as it is now the norm for us here at WOWBuildings.

LAM:
LAM(Layer Additive Manufacturing) is the industrial counterpart of home hobby printing and although the concept is the same, the precision and speed of these machines enable us to manufacture and produce the products shown above in volume.

This allows us to bring you products that would not have been possible before with other processes such as injection molding and only available to sizable investment. Although the quality is inferior to volume produced injection molding, the models are perfect and well surface finished to the naked eye. No layer lines are visible and the models are perfectly smooth and ready to paint with just one coat of primer.

All the models have been tested and some have even been painted, as you can see from the samples above. We are ready to send off for production to our partner site www.3Dprintall.com who will produce the volume run of the models you pledge under license by Wow Buildings. We should start delivery 3 months after that and probably well before the delivery due date noted above.

Models will be well packaged and sent directly to your delivery address. Due to logistics, we can only deliver to USA, Canada, UK and Europe. These models and others will be licensed by Wow Buildings and available from www.games.3dprintall.com under license, for purchase and delivery internationally, after the KS has been funded. Prices may differ.

DIGITAL MEDIA:
We strive to produce models that will print with as little support and parts as possible. Some models print in one go whilst most are split up into parts which must be printed separately and then assembled.

The file format of choice will be .STL and the models shall be zipped and made available to the user for download. The user is responsible for downloading their product and must have a valid internet connection and email with which to collect their reward, via internet download. We will keep the files on our system for at least three months after the first date of issue. The user must ensure that he collects the files within this time frame or risk forfeit.

Backers must realize that the resolution you obtain on your print is down to the system you use. Our high resolution files will give you almost render quality prints on high end SLA machines, whilst the same files will produce lesser resolution prints on standard FDM printers. At any rate, all the files have been previously tested on SLA and FDM printers and have shown satisfactory produce.

We recommend FDM Prints with at least a 400micron nozzle and 200 micron layer height for terrain. A 100 micron layer height will give you outstanding prints all round. We have also tested the files with larger nozzles, at 500 microns and decent results are possible on most prints, if the layer height and temperature is controlled correctly. 0.5(500 micron) nozzles are not recommended for miniature printing.

SLA printers should have no problems obtaining excellent resolution and finish even at 100 micron layer height although 50 micron layer height is recommended for minute sculpt detail clarity. We will try our best to split models so they will fit in smaller print beds like those found on SLA machines. Although miniatures and figurines can be split into smaller parts, large terrain pieces will require a standard 220x220mm print bed. Standard for FDM Printers like the 'Ender3'

We supply the user with a design that has been tested on conventional home hobby printers and is proven to print.

All the models are tested and sliced with 'Cura' software which is freeware and available to all backers for use. We recommend that backers use 'Cura' as it is fully tested with our models and we can offer customer support, if any problems are encountered. We are unable to give customer support for other slicing software and backers use this at their own risk.

When using our digital media, we do not hold ourselves responsible for the production or manufacturing process of the design, this is exclusively up to the user.

Users may modify models and files at their own risk and only for their own personal use. Modified files are not guaranteed by us and as such, users do this under their own risk and know how.

The Images shown on the campaign page are just for visualization and although they may come very close, they are not an exact representation of the final design or printed model, which may vary.

We reserve the right to alter any of the models shown, at any time, before delivery, with the intent of improving the design, or efficiency of production.
