What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a global crowdfunding platform where people can support projects they like in exchange for unique rewards. It's a place where creators can present their ideas to the public and secure funding to bring them to life.
What are the Shadows Lands?
The Shadows Lands is our unique project to create a collection of miniature figures in digital format, complete with an extensive background and universe where each character has their own story and connections with other heroes and monsters.
What format are the miniatures provided in?
Our miniatures are provided in STL format, prepared for 3D printing.
When will the miniature file shipping start?
We plan to start shipping the miniature files within a few weeks after the completion of the Kickstarter campaign. The basic and advanced sets are already prepared and will be shipped as soon as possible, while the stretch goals will be shipped as they become ready.
Is international shipping possible?
Yes, since our products are in digital format, we can ship them to backers anywhere in the world.
Is it possible to return or exchange miniatures?
Due to the nature of crowdfunding campaigns, we cannot offer returns or exchanges after the Kickstarter campaign has ended. However, we always strive to ensure high quality of our product and in case of any issues we will work with you to find a solution.
What are STL files and how do I use them?
STL files are a file format used in 3D printing. They contain information about a three-dimensional model that can be printed on a 3D printer. To use an STL file, you need access to a 3D printer and a slicing program, which can convert the STL file into instructions for your 3D printer.
Can I edit STL files?
Yes, STL files can be edited in specialized 3D modeling programs. However, be aware that some changes might affect the print quality.
What material should I use for 3D printing your miniatures?
The choice of material for 3D printing depends on the type of your 3D printer. The most common materials for FDM printers are PLA and ABS. However, our miniatures are optimized for printing on DLP/SLA printers that use photopolymer resins. These materials provide the best detail quality and allow our miniatures to fully realize their potential.
I'm new to 3D printing. Can you provide instructions or guides?
Unfortunately, we do not provide educational materials on 3D printing, but there are many resources and communities online that can help you get started. We recommend looking for guides or courses on platforms like YouTube, Coursera, Udemy, and others.
If I have problems or questions, how can I contact you?
We are always happy to help our backers! You can contact us through Kickstarter by sending us a message, or you can email us at the address listed in our profile.
Can I sell miniatures printed using your STL files?
The use of our STL files for printing and selling miniatures is not permitted. Our files are intended for personal use and cannot be used for commercial purposes without our permission.
Can I sell or pass on STL files to other people?
Our STL files are copyright protected and cannot be sold, passed on, or distributed without our permission. Please respect our rights and the work we have put into creating these miniatures.
What if I want to use your miniatures in a commercial project or product?
If you want to use our miniatures in a commercial project or product, please contact us to discuss licensing terms and permission. We are always open to collaborations and discussing partnership possibilities.
Can I resize your miniatures?
Yes, you can scale the models in any 3D printing preparation software, but keep in mind that this could affect the level of detail and the quality of the final result.
If I missed the Kickstarter campaign, can I still purchase your models?
Yes, after the Kickstarter campaign is over, our models will become available for purchase on our website or other official sales outlets. However, special offers or exclusive models may only be available during the Kickstarter campaign.
