"Just want to say thank you to all the support again from my previous scifi structures and scifi spaceships kickstarter projects. To continue showing my appreciation I am planning to release a "volume 2" of my 3D printable scifi structures!…"

The Kickstarter is here: link
.stl files for anyone with access to a 3D printer. Also can include a discount on the previous set of terrain files.

Just asking because I'm curious, what are the limitations on using the STL files? For example, I don't have a 3D printer but I want to import the models into Table Top Simulator and play online virtual minis with my friends. Or, can I convert the STL files into paper templates ala Pepakura and build them that way?

I've never heard of Pepakura before, but I just did a search, and found this:

Pepakura Designer supports common 3DCG file formats, including OBJ, 3DS, and STL.

So it looks like that software can use .STL files as inputs.

In a nutshell, Pepakura allows you to 'unfold' a 3D mesh model and create paper templates with tabs that you can then cut out and assemble. There would probably be a clean-up step in there since paper can be a tedious medium to create small details in. So, a low/reduced polygon step would be suggested. On the bright side, you can print extra details right on the 'skin' of the model.

Some examples…
