Hobby ProBox: Kickstarter läuft
Pro Dicer haben einen Kickstarter für eine neue Transportbox gestartet.
Und darum geht es:
The Hobby ProBox is a 3D printable modular portable storage box for paints, tools and miniatures for tabletop and roleplay games. It consists of a robust but lightweight (620g!) transport box with a rail system, which can be adapted to your own space requirements using various trays. These trays are designed to offer as much space as possible to store tools, paints, brushes, wet palettes, miniatures and more. It was actually developed for organizing and transporting painting and wargaming accessories, but you can find your own scope of application for it as well. Suggest a tray in the comments to fit your own needs.
The Hobby ProBox comes in three different sizes S, M and L (more or less 2x modified M-Boxes). All Boxes can be printed on 210x250mm bed sizes (e.g. MK3S+). Almost everything in this campaign has been test printed several times, iterated, improved upon and optimised to print efficiently on FDM printers without the need of supports. Also this box design has been field tested successfully for several months now.
** PLEASE NOTE! – This Kickstarter is for digital files (STLs) only! You need to print all these items on your own home 3D printer – these are not physical goods! Your printer also requires a minimum bed size of 210 x 250mm. **
- modular storing and transportation system for your paints, tools and miniatures
- lightweight design, compact and robust
- low filament consumption (S-Box only 620g without any interior) designed for efficient printing (S-Box 22h without any interior)
- simple to set up and ready to use
- 100% SUPPORT-FREE, this means that you do not have to generate supports in your slicer software!
The main Campaign includes the .STLs needed to print the Hobby ProBox in S, M and L and all the miniature trays to transport your miniatures in a safe way. If you also want to have the chance to get the paint- and wet palette tray, the orgaizer trays, the cool rack system and all the other accessories please make sure to get the stretch goal reward package.
Safe transport of minis, paints & more
Take your hobby with you everywhere! Everything you need is organized and well protected with the Hobby ProBox System.
Large Storage Space
For the main campaign, 3 sizes S, M and L are available. The L-Box is still in development and will be available soon.
Due to the optimal print orientation and the use of metal screws for the handle, the box is super strong but also leightweight (<0.7kg S-Box without trays)
Multiple design combinations
The front panel of the Hobby ProBox can be either printed closed or opened with a hexagonal pattern. By changing filament and color during print, you can achieve a really nice hexagon design. The flat panel is suitable for personalization by adding parts (text or other objects) by your slicer. In addition, an acrylic plate can be used to let the world take a look at the projects you have brought with you. To avoid carrying the front panel with you, you can slide it into the slots on the back side.
The Hobby ProBox can be printed either closed or opened (hex pattern) on the back. The optional back panel can be printed in different colours and then glued to the inside of the Hobby ProBox with a few drops of superglue. This has a much better look compared to bridging or supports. Please check the assembly video for further information.
Modular Tray System
The tray system is modular and can be adapted to your requirements. These inserts are designed to store a wide variety of miniatures, paints, tools and accessories. The miniatures are inserted into a rail system, held and locked safely with a clasp.
Fits miniatures of various base sizes
The following base sizes will fit in the base sliders miniature trays:
- Round: 25, 28, 32, 40, 50, 65 mm
- Square: 20, 25, 40mm
The amount of miniatures that can be stored depends on the base size and how close the models are pushed together, but varies between 3-7 per row. With the tray for 32mm bases, for example, up to 5 miniatures fit in each row that result in a total 20 models per tray.
One tray is designed to glue a metal plate 176 x 196mm on it so you can store multiple miniatures with magnets on it as you can see in below picture.
Organize your stuff
All sorts of useful things can be stored in the organizer inserts, such as: token, cards, laser Pointer, measuring Tools, dice, pliers, superglue etc.
Safe transport of your paints
The paint inserts hold either 20/25 Citadel sized pots (32mm) or 35/42 dropper sized bottles (25mm) in a safe way. There is also some space for standard sized brushes (max 185mm length and 8mm diameter). Most of the available miniature paints will fit including Citadel, Vallejo, Army Painter, Scale 75, Two Thin Coats, AK Interactive, ProAcryl, and more.
Special trays for your wet palette and brushes
The wet palette insert holds the „Army Painter“ or „Red Grass Games Lite“ palette and can be modified with a tool or brush compartment. The wet palette tray must stored in the top slot of the boxes as only there is enough space for it.
- 2 metal screws (M4x30)
- optional magnets and metal plates (176 x 196mm)
- optional rubber pads or furniture gliders as shock absorbers
The assembly is a matter of around 10min for the box. First glue the exosceleton (edge protection) on the edges of the box and optional the back plate on the inside hex pattern. Then install the handle with 2 screws. At the end you can glue rubber pads or furniture gliders as shock absorbers at the lower exosceleton. But there are also .stl files if you want to print shock absorbers by your own and there are also .stl files with those bumpers already inclued in the exosceleton.
Transport and organize your paints. The tolerances are well balanced so that your paints will noch fall out and on the other hand the labels will not be damaged. Suitable for 32mm paints (e.g. GW) or 25mm drop bottles (e.g. Army Painter).
Wet Palette Tray
Print special trays for your wet palette (only „Army Painter“ or „Redgrass – Lite“), an essential painting accessory. This means your colors can be used for a long time and can be diluted and mixed.
This palette is designed to prepare your brush for drybrushing. This allows you to test how much paint is left on your brush without drying out the brush and paint, as it would be the case with a paper towel or similar.
Organize your game accessories, tools, cards and much more with those modular boxes.
