Dreaming of stl files becoming reality?

Was aware of the STL KS - but did not realise they were offering existing Resin sets as add-ons.

We too wanted the Half Tower and the Half wall is something we would like them to provide a Resin option.

At the moment we don't have a 3D printer and have already backed a number of STL projects on the assumption of getting one, one of which was for a Castle.

With KSIV, original Epix Haven castle and even the old Citadel Castle we have enough big castle pieces to keep us happy :)

Epix Haven has posted their new Kickstarter: it’s STL files for home printing... but you can buy the original resin pieces as add-ons!

I guess I will be able to finish my castle, after all .:)
Nice but not what I was hopping. I have a lot of there stuff now and always wanted the Mini Tower!. It was going to be made last KS but it never got unlocked. I can't see myself 3d printing it I will never get it to match the sets I have now. That and there a lot of 3d castles that I have already that are better done than these. Good luck to them but I hope they offer some of the stuff in resin.

We have the gatehouse and 4 corner towers but no freestanding ones.

We do find with the stairs that unless you get the orientation/polarisation right you can have problems. Also we have a suspicion that the stairs are for specific levels, as in construction we often end up moving stairs from one level to another to get a snug fit.

This is the freestanding tower. I did not have any of the walls, so I had no interest in the corner tower.

I got distracted, so no chance yet to make gaskets. I'll report back when I do.

Did you get the corner tower or the freestanding tower. I picked up the freestanding tower and I do not recall any magnets in that one. It kinda looks like you might have the corner tower in one of the pictures based on the floor I can see, so perhaps that might be part of the difference.

Yeah, I'm guessing different batches.

I took 3 photos. The first shows the fit at the second floor. You can see the gap at the base, and the lean - this is not the best angle, the lean is actually almost 20 degrees, and leans right into any adjacent figures. The second shows the magnet at the base of the 2nd floor stairs; you can see it's angled. The third shows the magnet at the top of the first floor steps; it's not flush, either.

I take it some of you don't have the magnets? I don't think that's the whole issue, as the fit at this joint (and on the third floor; the first is fine) is pretty loose.

And it ain't the end of the world, of course, but it's an annoyance I'd like to fix. I have some thin foam in a shed, I'll try some gaskets later, and then try removing the magnets if it's still a problem.

Between the corners and freestanding, I have four of their towers. I've never noticed any magnets.

Interesting, mine has no magnets at all, but the fit seems pretty good. Perhaps we have a few different batches?
