MAV3RICK: Modular 3D Printable Tank Kickstarter
Ein sehr modularer Panzer zum Selberdrucken ist derzeit auf Kickstarter.
MAV3RICK – Modular Armoured Vehicle 3D pRIntable Customizable Kit – is a 28mm scale sci-fi tank design that you can print at home on a 3D printer. It is intended for wargamers, modellers, collectors and 3D printing enthusiasts.
The model is ready to roll-out, however I need to test it to be sure that you will not come across any problems, when you come to print it yourself. That’s why I need your help Kickstarters – to raise funds for printing and testing the design. Help MAV3RICK make the transition from the digital to the real world and get a fantastic, fun and high quality kit in return!
MAV3RICK redefines how models should be prepared for printing, with the aim of getting the very best quality out of FDM printers. Unlike your average 3D printable vehicle model, MAV3RICK’s panels are broken up to lie flat on your printer’s build plate. This goes a long way to getting rid of visible striations that mar other designs. Furthermore, it also saves on plastic, as your printer doesn’t have to fill in wasted space. Not to mention – it just makes it more fun to build.
A unique feature of the MAV3RICK is its modular construction. The front, side and roof panels attach without glue allowing you to swap them in and out as you see fit. One model makes many variants: personnel carrier, infantry fighting vehicle, battle tank, assault gun, rocket artillery. Or you can just mix it up and create a Frankentank of your own design.
If you’re a wargamer, that means you are not forced to choose the variant at build-time. Instead, you can try out different army lists, strategies and ideas with just a click of a few modular pieces
The model comes with a huge selection of weapons. They are modelled with slots for magnets, adding an extra dimension of modularity. (3x1mm magnets required)
The kit features many points of articulation. Turrets rotate, weapons elevate and hatches open and close.
With dimensions comparable to other 28mm tank models, the MAV3RICK’s will be perfectly at home on the battlefields of your favourite wargame.
Extra funds raised from the campaign will go towards making additional modules for the tank. Please note, that these are just concepts at the moment and subject to change.
Campaign backers will be rewarded with 3D geometry files in OBJ format. You will receive a link to download the files that you can then print yourself. These will come with assembly instructions in PDF format. All backers will be mentioned in a thank you note in the credits. Please note that the tank requires glue for assembly.
- Gun Nut Pledge: You will receive the various weapon models.
- Tread Head Pledge: You will receive the files for the complete tank kit.
- Force Commander Pledge: You will receive the complete kit, plus I will sculpt the insignia or symbol of your choice on some of the tank’s pieces. This way you will get a kit that’s customised for your individual army, for example. Good locations for placement would be: side and top hatches, front and side armour panels, etc.
(Keep it simple – overly complicated designs may not be suitable for 3D printing. It’s best to get in touch first if you’re not sure.)
- Tank Factory Pledge: You will receive the complete kit, with a commercial license, allowing for the sale of 3D printed copies.
(Other pledge levels are distributed under a non-commercial license, allowing for printing for personal use only.)
Die Kampagne läuft noch 25 Tage und ist bereits finanziert.
