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.
Thank you all for the wonderful support. It has been a great pleasure doing these designs for the community.
However, my schedule is so full between my last semester of graduate school and helping out with New Life Fine Arts getting ready for the Esther production in April that I cannot feasibly focus on new designs.
I’ll return in full force in July once I settle into my new job. In the meantime I will gladly respond to support requests and Shapeways re-scaling.
The most convenient purchase options are via my Shapeways storefront and licensed sellers:
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:
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 am happy to fulfill print-to-order purchases. I take requests directly, through private message on social media or email, firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 email@example.com for details. 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.
Esther: For Such A Time As This
New Life Fine Arts is doing a reprise of Esther in April. Stay tuned for more information and a new playbill discount.
