As seen on Critical Role?!? Unreal!!!
I sent Matt Mercer of Critical Role a set of these and was amazed to see some of them used in Episode 50 of Season 2. Pretty cool!
If you print or paint for color-coding, please post a make! I'd love to see how people use these.
I can never remember what different colored rings mean, so I thought I'd make condition effects simpler for myself. These are obvious status effect rings that you can place on your minis to indicate an active effect (see full list of available statuses below). They are sized to around 25 mm in the inner ring, but you may want to size up a few millimeters to accommodate different-sized minis. Note that the newest files (those with the text base facing outwards) have a slightly larger interior ring diameter.
The majority of statuses are available with text flush with the ring- files named following the convention "STATUS_OUTWARD.stl".
I wrote a batch script to convert all the original outward-facing rings to rings with slightly extruded text (similar to user Nitrocubane's remix, but with multiple words and spacing identical to the outward status rings), so those are all available as well- files named following the convention "STATUS_EXTRUDED.stl".
I strongly recommend doing a test print of just a few statuses to see if you need to resize to accommodate your mini base!
Let me know if there's a condition I missed or that you'd like made up.
Don't have a printer?
If you want to get a set of these for yourself, have a look at these good folks who are offering licensed reproductions of these rings:
If you're in North America, check out Viridian Gaming Supplies' Etsy Listing for sets of these rings and sets in an exclusive embossed-text format!
If you're in Europe, check out Triskelion3DCraft for some two-toned sets!
Note: Certain unscrupulous parties are selling these rings unlicensed. I would ask that you prioritize the sellers listed above to get yourself some rings!
There is now a "tube-style" carrying box that stores 12 rings per box in an individual compartment for easy organization (as shown in main photo), as well as a simpler box with 4 "tubes" for bulk storage- check out NinjaPrototype's Make. Additionally, there is a deeper version ("bulk_box_60_depth.stl" that is also untested, but should be identical to the make above, just with a greater depth. If you make one and it works, definitely post a Make!
For those who printed a ton of these, check out mpfennell's storage box remix with slots for four individual ring storage trays- super cool!
To those of you who've sent a tip my way either through this page or through the "Print this thing"- that's so kind of you and very much appreciated.
Simplify3D has trouble with these- because I am a novice Blender User, the template I made leads to overlapping surfaces and I couldn't sort out how to properly perform a union join of the shapes. Cura works just fine, but if you like S3D, try this workaround from user Incurable:
For anyone slicing this in S3D who have found that the letters aren't attached to the ring, I've found a quick solution.
B. With the models loaded in S3D in the spot you want them printed in, go the menu bar at the top and click Mesh > Separate Connected Surfaces. This will separate the letters from the ring in the model itself, but maintain their position on your bed. No need to spend hours fixing each mesh with Netfabb or anything like that.
Now with added concentration indicator as suggested by /u/cpf4me on one of the dnd subreddits
Now with outward facing text as suggested by /u/mynameipaul, monster-clone-differentiators (thanks to /u/Turtle-Fox), as well as numerous conditions as suggested by a bunch of helpful users on one of the dnd subreddits- thanks to battleRabbit, dmjendor, BoBoSmoove, ClearBrightLight, thorn1993, and others.
- From user luniticus regarding the original files (with inward-facing text):
"I had to scale the print up by 1% to have standard Wizkid bases fit."
Note on Thing Files: Reorganizing the Thing Files is a little cumbersome- I may have some files out-of-order. Try CTRL+F on the Thing Files Page to see if the status you're after is included (or just look in the table below, I try to keep it up to date).
Outward and extruded statuses
|1-2 COVER ALTERNATE
|3-4 COVER ALTERNATE
|ARMOR OF AGATHYS
|DEATH FAIL ALT
|DEATH SAVE ALT
- "Paint guards" to protect the ring faces if you just want to paint the letter faces (Doesn't really work on the extruded versions, I think?)
Make your own:
Blender template files are included for this style of ring, as well as an embossed style as per nitrocubane's remix.
