This is an experiment in OpenForge supporting the OpenLOCK system completely. We've been in discussions with Printable Scenery and we heartily support this open standard for locking tiles.

Here we have the basic floor types, I (1x1), S (2x1), E (2x2), and EB (2x1.5). In the future we will release the larger floor tiles, along with the other tiles like the curved, diagonal and the hexagonal.

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:

OpenLOCK layouts

Floor plan examples

For the most part you want to print walls. You will need at least one ac/CA per corner, I suggest printing them in pairs. You will also need at least one of AB/BA/CB/CA per inner facing corner. I suggest mostly sticking with AB/BA and likewise printing them in pairs.

C is useful for dead ends, but not strictly necessary, you can build a dead end with a pair of ac/CA and an A.

B is also not strictly necessary, as you can recreate it's main use with an A and a pair or AB/BA.


  • 12/31/16 - Added missing floor tiles from OpenLOCK 4.0 (EA, SA, SB)
  • 12/31/16 - Removed printing supports from inside openlock port. They were causing too many problems for people.
  • 12/31/16 - Added new OpenLOCK clips
  • 12/31/16 - Updated naming convention to match OpenLOCK
  • 2/27/17 - Added new missing tiles from OpenLOCK EB, EC, RB, UB, 6x6, 6x6B

If I use the openlock walls to get my 5' around walls, I am left with a 0.5 gap on one edge.
any chance of a 4x0.5 floor ? or even a 2x 0.5
happy to discuss via email if you have other options ?

I've printed out quite a few of your things & have been using them in my gaming sessions & the guys are going nuts over them. So much so that they want me to make more walls, floors, etc for them to buy, since I'm the only one in the area with a 3D printer. Is that legal or allowed?

Yep, I intentionally license my tiles to grant people the right to sell them. There are one or two that I used someone else's work, and had to follow their license, so those would be not allowed, but like 99% of them it's just fine.

On the page for a thing, on the lower left it will show the license, as long as it doesn't have the no commercial attribute, you are good to go.

I want use this tiles with this dorr http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1554173 but the door isn´t compatible with openlock system, how i can do it? Thanks

OpenForge 2.0 Cut Stone External Arched Door

I believe i found the answer, this http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1910969 is correct?

OpenForge 2.0 Cut-Stone OpenLOCK Magnetic Base

Solution, Opelock-Magnetic base 2x2 + 2x1 , but so hard, your designs are awesome but here there is a bug :)

No work, doesn't exist 3x2 base compatible with openlock system :(

What is the system with future, openlock or magnetic base? Thanks

If you don't want external, a 2x2 arched internal door will work fine on those bases.

It's really mostly up to my patreon backers which system gets more love. I use both, both have advantages and disadvantages compared to one another, but I expect overall that both will continue to be supported, though right now it appears that openlock is getting more votes, so it's likely that it will be getting more attention in the short term.

As for the door, likely I'll be releasing the openlock arched door in the next few weeks, as it's one of the higher vote getters right now.

Hey there. I made a DLP printer and small parts print really well. I have printed a few parts but my printer really doesnt like the large bodies like the walls and the floors. I converted one part of you to a step file to make it hollow and fill it up with supports and try out with different wall thickness. Now the problem is it takes ages to convert them to step file. Are you willing to release the step-files?

I'm surprised the slicer for a DLP can't make the interior hollow. When I send a part to print, I can print it hollow if I configure the slicer correctly.

As for step files, I've never heard of them before. I've checked and not one of the tools I use support them (Blender, OpenSCAD, NetFabb), so I'm not sure I have the tools. Even still, I have literally thousands of released tiles. To go and convert everything to another format would be probably hundreds of hours and block any new releases for weeks. If there's some kind of automated way to convert them that I can script at the command line, I could consider backgrounding it to just run for a long time and post them, but if it takes manual steps, it's an enormous amount of work.

I'm very new to 3D printing so i will try it with the slicer.
I'm a technical engineer myself and we use step-files to send "dumb" drawings (with no intelligence, only the body)
I have also tweeked a few settings so it would wait longer before printing the next layer. this way the resin has time to find its way off the object.
It came out much smoother :)

They print very well. However SA 3x1 can't connect to EA 3x3! Need more floor pieces to connect to EA 3x3.

It's worth noting that OpenLOCK and Rampage are really very much based around 2x2 tiles, and other sizes are there really to solve weird map problems. With my OpenLOCK stuff I'm trying to stick pretty close to the general design goals of OpenLOCK as a whole. That being said, I've successfully introduced a number of new tile morphologies (GA, PA, PB, PC, TA, WA, YA, XA & ZA so far), so if we need an EC that solves this problem, I can probably make that happen.

The issue exists with the 3x3 full Riser also. It doesn't connect to the 3x1 half riser. We really need to get the 3x? tiles to one unique standard.

I think adding an EC 3x3 would solve many issues with the 3x3 tiles. Thanks for such awesome work.

Thanks Devon!
Will you be doing the same for the 3x3 risers?

Yeah, there probably needs to be an EC that has the normal alignment of ports but is 3x3

More variations of 1x floors would be nice. Like 1x3 or 1x2 tiles.

Working on printing these now. I like this idea much more than the magnetic system.

I wouldn't mind trying a set without the supports but I suspect some people might have problems without them.

So are we meant to knock out those supports in the end? Because they are printing like poop for me.

Yeah, they are just supports. I'm not entirely sold on leaving them in

I am on my third, at low resolution, and they have been fucking up. The first didn't end up printing one of the inner walls, and then the second globbed up some inner supports. I always assume it is my fault, but I'm fairly certain inner supports can be designated to the printer, without having to make them explicitly. This third one is looking good so far.

I can publish a set without the supports. They were in the base OpenLOCK files (and in the Rampage system tiles), so I figured best to not change anything like that, but if it's creating genuine issues, I see no problem with publishing them without.

Let me know.
