Title: 3D Printed Buildings
Post by: NeonKnight on 12 November 2019, 17:32:58
i received permission to post these up 9wanted to make sure 100% OK first).

These are some of the various 3D Building Files I have acquired online - in some case Free, in others I have paid $$$ for the files.

First are some Buildings that can be found here:

and here (as a paid collection - highly recommend!)

More buildings from the Heliport Collection (admin Building, and the Dicey Venture Studio (Med Building) and from Thunderhead Studios (Mech Repair Facility & Com Tower):

This second I love as it 3D buildings designed to work with the newer BT Map Forward Base (i've scaled mine up to be on a 1.75" hex base, so x & Y by a factor 135% left Z at 100%.

Again - more to come soon!

They all look good, but that first set... are they supposed to be level zero buildings?  ???

I would probably call them level 1. There are other houses in the set a little taller.  I have yet to print those.

Ankle-high just seems a little low to me...

So I finished painting up the Mach Repair Bay Building.

Looks pretty good!

Nice . . . I think that roll up door might also be a vehicle repair bay!  Or at least a storage for armor, myomer, etc.

I'm thinking likely supply storage myself.

It looks great, but I have to say, that's a LOT of building for a single bay...  I'm with Colt on this one.

It's from a set which was done to make representations of the buildings from the Forward base Map from the recent BT map Set, so the building is the same size as the building on the map.

Unsurprisingly, that's ALSO a LOT of building for a single 'mech repair bay...

I look the models, but I think they are out of scale somewhat.

Main building doors are generally more than 2m high, around 2.5m. And when comparing Admin and Med Center to Thunderbolt, the mech seems oversized. 50% increase in dimensions would make the buildings more in scale with the mech, that's my impression, based on the provided pics. Maybe the scale is better in person.

It's really hard to make a large structure to scale in any tabletop. Mainly because it would be just too big. Mech Bay really should a huge structure in comparison to the miniatures. Even with oversized hexes it is not practical to make them in real 1:285. Every terrain is ~accurate in height, but compressed in width.

I just love the industrial equipment on the board. It burns so yellow. :)
