Kickstarter Watch - Epic Dungeon Tiles: Fantasy Tiles for 3D Printers

It’s very promising with all these new 3D printing kickstarters popping up. It bodes well for the future of 3D-printing and will hopefully get more people to buy a printer, which in turn will allow for further growth.
Rob Mehew contacted me the other day and asked me to take a look at his kickstarter, Epic Dungeon Tiles: Fantasy Tiles for 3D Printers.
If you’re interested in what 3D-printing can do for your hobby then this is a very affordable entry point and if you’re already into 3D-printing then it is equally affordable.
Pledges start at £5, which gives you the Just Tiles reward, comprising some basic dungeon tiles, doors, pillars and a statue, or the Help I’m Trapped reward with a lot of traps.
If you want both of the above it will cost you a total of £8.
For £18 you’ll get all the dungeon tiles, an observatory and tavern tiles.
Now, this is really affordable and doubly so, as all pledges of £5 or more will be eligible for all stretch goals. At the moment the campaign is within a couple of £ of being funded and with that a couple of stretch-goals will be unlocked. With a minimum of luck they will be followed by a lot more.
I especially like the cute Toadstool House.
Rob is currently looking into making the whole set Open Lock-compatible, which I think is a very good idea. We’ll see what happens with that during the campaign.
EDIT: As per Robs comment below, it is now Open Lock compatible. 
This KS ends on July 20th 2017
Rob kindly sent me a couple of STL-files for review purposes and as soon as I get my printer up and running again I’ll try them and will get back with the results.

  1. Interesting stuff, will be keen to see what happens with this, although 3D printing is not part of the Daxio world :-)
