Free STL Files
While most of my models are for sale, I do understand that not everyone is interested in spending money on 3D printable ships. Also, it may feel risky to spend money on digital files before you know if it will work out on your printer.
That’s why I’ve made the following 3D printable miniatures available for free, along with most of my submarines and all of my aircraft:
– Japanese Ise-Class Battleship
– US Northampton-Class Cruiser
– US Bogue-Class Carrier
– USS Indiana (BB-58)
– British Aircraft Carrier Eagle
– Soviet Svetlana-Class Cruiser
– Italian Soldati-Class Cruiser
– Ostellan Defiance-Class Battleship courtesy of BlastWave
I also am designing a 3D printable tile tower for hexagonal board games, you can track the progress and download once available here.
The most convenient purchase options are via my Shapeways storefront and licensed sellers:
As of May 2020, Shapeways will not be updated with new models except by request. Please consider purchasing from XPForge which will be updated according to their schedule.
My designs are also available for personal and educational use for people who have access to a 3D printer. You can find them for a small fee plus some free sample ones in my shops:
As of May 2020, all new models will only be uploaded to Wargaming3D. I will continue to provide legacy support to CGTrader bundles.
You can follow me on social media where I post new designs and updates.
I keep a spreadsheet of my current and planned designs and their status. This spreadsheet also has maximum prices for each miniature for direct sales.
I cannot beat XPForge’s prices. XPForge has similar quality prints to me and better prices and so I recommend buying through them instead of directly from me. While I do net more from direct sales I am not particularly interested in focusing my efforts on managing printing and shipping. This is time much better used for new designs. However the following policy is still in effect:
I am happy to fulfill print-to-order purchases. I take requests directly, through private message on social media or email, email@example.com. I take these on a case by case basis as time allows and invoice when ready to ship. Standard lead time is two weeks. Minimum order is $15 not including flat $5 shipping. I reserve the right to adjust shipping up for larger orders if necessary however this will be reflected in the estimate I provide when you make your request.
I do design commissions defaulting at $30/hr on a case by case basis. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Check your spam folder for a reply. My design expertise is 1/1800 scale naval. An exception to this rate is 1/1800 WWII naval ships which are set at a flat rate of $15 because they fit within my current project. You are paying to put the design of your choice in the front of the queue. Lead time for designs are up to three months at this time due to my busy school schedule. In Q2 2020 I should be able to increase design production and reduce the expected lead time for commissions.
