Well, I haven't posted in a bit but I'm making progress on the set.

I had some requests to make alternate parts for the pyramid so it can make a Meso-American style stepped pyramid, so I've been working on that.

All I have left is to make the temple that sits on top of the pyramid, then I can get them converted to STL files.

So it's almost done!

Here are a few pics:

Very cool. I just received my 3D printer today so I'm on the prowl for terrain pieces for 40K & historicals.

Having trouble with the concept, if it's completely printed. The bits and bobs are one thing, but printing large flats? It is most certainly quicker and cheaper, also perhaps easier to make the basic structure from card, then glue on accessories. You can use a ball point pen to score in panel lines with a ruler. You would probably end up with flatter sides than many affordable printers could produce as well.

PS if you just bought a printer, don't jump in the deep end. Try a few simple cubes first, to get things figured out.

PPS just noticed the contradiction. Still sound advice.

The pyramid is made from modular sections that fit together using the openlock clips.

SO you can mix & match the parts to make different pyramids, and also ones of different sizes.

The pyramid is also just one of the structures I've made for the Tomb Complex. Here are pics of some of the other parts:
