The 3d print is in from Shapeways and it turned out GLORIOUS. This fun figurine can be YOURS too when you donate to The Endless Forest on IndieGoGo! http://igg.me/at/theendlessforest

Shapeways is a great 3d print on demand service. When we send you access to the model, you have to pay for the print and currently it costs around 50 Euro, I will see if I can't make it use less material to get it under 40. The other deer are only 18!

Take a look!




yours,
Auriea.

wait so just to make sure, if you get that sundeer model perk for 50 Euros, you have to also pay another 40 Euros to get it printed if you wanted to?

Looks fantastic.

I wish there was a way for people to get 3d models for their characters cheaper than $1000 (plus the fee for shapeways) ;.; I think more people would donate if that option was at a lower tier.

3D printing is expensive, and

3D printing is expensive, and that is a pretty elaborate model. I don't think the price is unfair.

I'm curious about what the sun deer's role would be, because I can't imagine something so elaborate would just be a regular set that anyone could get.

In the game, the Sun Deer


In the game, the Sun Deer would be a special character, like the Zombie Deer. But he would always be present. Or at least be able to appear without human intervention.

Yes, the cost of 3D printing

Yes, the cost of 3D printing and shipping is on top of the contribution to the campaign. The upside being that you can print as many as you like in whatever color you choose.

We originally had only planned to give 3d model files but then we figured out a more convenient way with Shapeways.

Good thing too, because it requires quite a bit of work to prepare the model so it can be printed and uses a minimum amount of "plastic" (to decrease the cost). That is why the custom avatar prints need to be such a high perk too: there's a lot of hand work involved before the models can be printed (and that takes time away from working on the game itself).
