This is my first dalliance into doing the OpenLOCK side clip standard, and you can really create some cool stuff with this. This ruined set gives you OpenLOCK A walls in all the variations of height, along with all the forms of full height columns and half height columns.

If you want to clip on more then one side of a column at the same height, you'll want to use the stubby clip that's included.

For instructions on how to get started with OpenForge, take a look at our tutorials.

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:

I really like these walls, but have one question. When using the L columns (columns with clips that are perpendicular to each other), the stubby clip is still too long when putting a clip on both sides of the column. When one clip is in, there is no room for the 2nd clip to fit snugly.

I've tried shaving the clip down a bit (well hacking the ends off with scissors) but then they don't hold. I've considered gluing half of a clip inside of each of the column faces.

Is there a different clip I should try or am I doing something wrong?


Everything GamerGorman20 said is true, but if you want a clip for this, there's one on this thing: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2523618

It's made for half height Ls where you have decided you really want a clip both ways. I recommend gluing it in.

OpenLOCK Cut-Stone Walls with side clips

In most cases you'll find a single clip per height level is enough. The half height corners only need one and the tall ones can be connected with one on the top going in one direction with the lower clip going the other.

Thanks again Devon! Will you be doing longer full height walls? I'd also love to see half walls.

I don't print with supports and it's generally fine. I know that printable scenery uses them, but at least on my printer, the super tiny supports regularly break prints, and you have to clean them out with a razor. I find on a practical basis that the holes are small enough that bridging generally works, and if you need to clean it out some, it's no more work then cleaning out the supports.

I've found that on my machine these can be printed with 2 shells, 2 bottom layers, 3 top layers, and 5% infill. No raft or support, though raft will no doubt bet needed once my new contact pad wears out a bit. I've printed 2 spools worth of these in year old hatchbox pla since they were published and have had no issues at these settings.

Also the 4.0 clip in your worked stone walls set can be printed hollow at 2 shells all around.

This stuff is perfect for frostgrave!

What infill would you recommend printing these at? Side shells? Top/bottom layers?

I generally do like 2 shells and 3 bottom/top layers.

Oh these are nice :) Modular wargaming terrain .. Looks great!

Another winner! Great job!

This is truly awesome. I will definitely be downloading these and printing. Wish I had your talent.
