3D Printable Post Apocalyptic Combat Vehicles

About

The 3D printable project

I've brought together a beefy collection of 3D printable micro auto duelling combat vehicles, inspired by the universes of Car Wars and Gaslands (two games I play in 8-12mm scales). Cars are provided in themed sets to bring the cost-saving to you, and can be rescaled with easy using common 3d Printing software (ex. Microsoft 10s' Free - 3D Builder). All tier backed files provided to backers come with a general-use commercial license; IE feel free to do what you like with them !

8mm collection - painted.

12mm vehicles - SLA printed with some minor metal sheet fencing for car window modding.

The Plan

Currently I have just over 84+ vehicles ready for backers to print. I've bundled them into themed sets to bring the value - savings to you. Once the campaign has finished, backers will receive a password dropbox link and/or email with attachments  to which they can download their backings from.

 Additional Free Files?

If this campaign is deemed a complete success and reaches its initially funding plus all rewards are unlocked, all tier- backers with be provided with notification to be able to download the Printable Extras Set file through my Thingiverse.com account.

 The Printable Extra set is more models curated as a community blogging bonus . All of the vehicles in the Printable Extras were collected from public repositories with existing Personal-Use / Fair Use licensing. To date they may or may not pass the production print-ready status for printability given the complexity of their details as 3d models (hence why they are not included as a reward or as part of the larger kickstarter offer).

While these models are not approved for licensing under any commercial terms - they still can be distributed and used for personal projects under fair use / personal -use terms.

Since these models are already available to the public separately you don't have to wait to search for them and get them - however as an added interest in building the community of 3d printable micro machines, I will be sharing them as a single file to my Thingiverse account at the end of the campaign and as part of my hobby blogging efforts so that all backers / supports can grow a collection - regardless of their backings.

Risks and challenges

Risks to this project for backers and myself are next to none.

The models included in this campaign have all been previously printed at 8mm and 12mm respectively on a SLA (Stereolithography ) 3D Printer using the printers propietary and support softwares to yield favorable results (see photos); you should expect the depth and strength of printable detail of the models to generally improve for you if you desire to increase the scale of your printing to 15mm, 20mm or larger.

All models have been mesh corrected and solidified with professional 3d modelling software, a smaller percent (less then 2%) may unintendedly produce slicer issues, but this is likely because of the software choice of the backer uses (for instance open source or non SLA 3d printing /slicing software ) and not a result of the integrity of these files (As noted I have printed all them without issues on a Wanhao D7).

Backers are encouraged to re-orientate and re-scale the models to suit their best printing machines' requirements, and to take step to ensure they produce the best print results by understanding their production environments' best practices.

Regarding licensing; all vehicle set files are provided to backers under a general creative common license; commercial-use. This also applies to all rewards unlocked with the exception of the reward; Printable Extras Set which is provided under a creative common license; personal-use / fair-use license.

Lastly, you (The Backer) will be receiving the digital files in .stl digital file format through a passworded dropbox directory - so there is no actual physical printed vehicle models being offered in this Kickstarter and no risk to unfulfilled printing and shipping orders.
