[UPDATE - 4th Feb 2013]
Now with two-alternative support sides - one with a ladder, and one with only the legs and a triangle piece to be glued on.

A 3 sided (triangular) wargaming watch-tower model for your savage races.

Rat-men, orcs, goblins, beastmen, kobolds, and more will feel right at home atop this vantage point, ready to spot for their allies or rain down bestial death!

Seemingly put together with scavenged planks, this rickety construction won't win any architectural prizes, but you can print a lot of them and have your own perimeter line of towers ready to use in under a day.

Fast, cheap and just good enough for the job - exactly the savage race way!

Height fully assembled = 4" (10cm)
Height to standing surface = 3.5" (9cm)
Widest point = 3.25" (8.25cm)

Ideally, I will be adding variation pieces to this Thing - including a support element that includes a ladder, a second-story platform that can be stacked with extra supports, etc.

SketchUp file included for those who want to modify it and create your own version!


I recommend 100% fill, 2 shells.

1x Platform
3x Support (of any combination of - Support, LadderSide and TriSide)

Trim model for any stray filament.
Recover small triangular prism pieces and keep.
Insert the tabs at the top of the support pieces into the holes in the underside of the platform - one tab per support, three holes in the base. This will be a snug fit.
Using a prism piece as the joint, glue two neighboring support pieces to each other.
Repeat for the other two connection points between the supports.
Finally, glue the support structure to the support platform.

It is now ready for priming, painting and decorating.

I've made two, and will probably make more. This is a versatile item. Thank you for posting it!

It just ends up being a bunch of random planks. =o(</slic3r></slic3r></slic3r>

I ran it through netfabb for a repair. It's not perfect but all the planks are present. First layer is rather wonky though.

same for me

Apparently I "liked" this about a month ago, and then forgot I did that.

I just stumbled upon it again, thought, hey, this is pretty cool. Double-like.

This is quite awesome. I could definitely see printing a whole table full of these assembled into stack-able towers and walkways. Well done!
