This is the base project for the OpenForge Wall Construction Kit. This project only contains the bases (stone and plain) that are used in the construction kit for building wall tiles. This project will be updated as new basic styles of walls and floors become available.
Select a base, then follow the links below to choose a floor style and a wall style. Prime, paint, (add magnets and filament rivets if you like) and glue.
There are a number of things I'm trying to solve with this moving forward.
1) There's practically a cambrian explosion of openforge pieces. to make all the possible combinations people might want, it results in potentially endless variety. Now if you want something that is a bit more of a special combination, or an odd size, it's easy to put together.
2) For some tiles, tudor especially, painting them in full tile form turned out to be a real pain. Now with this, you can print the tile, paint it and then assemble. This makes it much easier to reach awkward places on the parts.
For instructions on how to get started with OpenForge, we have a set of tutorials. Want to sell OpenForge prints? Want to use OpenForge designs in your product, check out the license FAQ.
OpenForge is now a patron supported project. I use the resources that my patrons give me in order to get the resources to let me create more sophisticated tiles with a greater level of detail. Please, support me, and I’ll deliver an ongoing stream of awesome gaming terrain. You can find more about OpenForge and Masterwork Tools at our:
1) most printers on the first layer will create a slight lip as the plastic is squeezed on the first layer. You will want to use a razor to cut that off from both the floor tile and the wall or else it can create a small gap.
2) I find painting the tiles as pieces much faster then doing it post assembly. I prime them as parts, paint them as parts and only after that do I glue the piece together.
3) Make batches of bases. I find printing, painting and assembling floor tiles + floor bases in batches and assembling those without a wall back really useful. They tend to be faster to paint and print then the backs, so it's easy to have a pile ready as I make new backs to go on them.
1) put magnets in the base. You won't need them on one side for this step (where the wall will be)
2) glue the floor to the base, using the wall to space it appropriately. I use cyanoacrylate glue (syuperglue)
4) in a few minutes, unclamp and add the last set of magnets and then the back, gluing on the bottom and where it meets the floor.
