17th of April 2022 live on Kickstarter.com

The Universal Shuttle - Type G will be available on Kickstarter - the first campaign of gamesArt starts on the 17th of April 2022 - Happy Easter :-)

The Universal Shuttle Type G is a spaceship model designed as a tabletop terrain part. It will be delivered as STL files for your 3D printer. The basic version of this model is 56cm long, 20 cm wide and 15cm high and works best for Sci-Fi RPG miniatures in the scale of 28 - 32 mm. Of course it can be scaled up or down with the Slicer software if you want to.

The model consists in the basic version of 42 separate parts that connect - without glue - using the "OpenLOCK" system. The OpenLOCK clips are free to download at Printablescenery.com.

All parts of the Universal Shuttle can be easily disassembled for storage or for modification and extension.

This model of the Universal Shuttle Type G has been test printed on a Prusa MK3s+ with the standard Pursament PLA. For the test print the standard resolution of the Prusa Slicer for Prusament PLA 200 Microns Quality was used.

The Universal Shuttle - Type G in detail:

The following pictures show the test print of the ship from various angles. The model in these pictures was printed with standard Prusament PLA, is completely untreated and the supports have only been roughly removed. The window panes were printed with transparent resin on an Anycubic Photon S printer.

The miniatures in the pictures come from different games and are in a scale from 28 to 32 mm. They are not part of the Kickstarter campaign for the Universal Shuttle Type G and are only there for size comparison.

The interior of the Universal Shuttle Type G is playable - so for example mission markers can be placed inside. The entrance door can be opened or closed. The roof of the Universal Shuttle Type G can be disassembled in multiple parts, so not all of the interior has to be revealed at once. The partition walls and the furniture can be taken out easily, and you can open all the doors, so the appearance can be modified as you like.

Because of the OpenLOCK clip system you can disassemble the model easily for storage - or use various modules to change the appearance completely, as you can see in the stretch goals ;-)

The crew seats of the Universal Shuttle Type G can be installed with round 1x3mm magnets, there are molds prepared for that in the model. But they can also be glued in or simply put in there temporarily, as you like.

The Pledge

The pledge consists of the STL files for the complete Universal Shuttle - Type G including all unlocked stretch goals. To use the STL files you will need access to a 3D printer. This pledge does not include any physical objects and will be delivered only in digital format.

After the campaign and completion of the formalities you will receive an email with a link to download the files. This will be a link to the Myminifactory Pledge Manager - or something equivalent to that.

The OpenLOCK clips that are needed for the assembly of the model can also be obtained as a free download at www.Printablescenery.com.

I have prepared several stretch goals for the campaign. These modules extend the basic model and can change the appearance drastically.
