Product Description

On the battlefields of the future, the lumbering Spidermech strides toward the front lines, decimating any opposition as it advances. Armed with a front mounted burst cannon, and two massive chainguns, this mech can chew through armor plating with a hail of bullets.

This design is one of many designs I have created for my very own miniatures game: Wargame 2080. All of the designs I have created for my game have interchangeable weapons that attach to the model using small round or square pegs. This allows each model to be pose-able and customizable, but it has taken me at least three prototypes to refine the peg/slot design, and I want to improve it even further to allow for a "snap-in" fit so that they connections stay together better.

With access to a Form 1 high-resolution printer, and ample Shapeways 3D printing credit, I would be able to improve my prototypes much faster, including the peg/slot design. Once they were ready, I would be able to order as many designs from Shapeways as needed in order to photograph them for my Shapeways shop. This would be a godsend for an entrepreneur like me, especially because I have funded this project out-of-pocket so far, which has forced me to take things more slowly. If I could speed up the process of designing/prototyping/improving models like this Spidermech, my game could become a reality more quickly, and I feel confident that I can create a product that will rival anything a larger company could do.

Wargame 2080 will be one of the first 28mm miniatures games to be 100% 3D printed, and the Form 1 printer, plus Shapeways 3D printing credit could prove invaluable in creating the game I've always wanted to make!
