Designing the Taui Landing Pad

2019-12-28 by David

The new Taui terrain collection is our latest sci-fi range of 3D-printable models, and here's the first look at the very first design.....

 

Presenting the Taui Landing Pad!!!



You'll notice some odd colours on this CG render, perhaps? Well, this landing pad has some unique features - the main feature being that it's designed to be printed in colour-tinted clear filament!!!

 

The whole model has been designed to minimise wall thickness and maximise the amount of light that can shine through in various places. So while you could choose to fully paint this as a normal 3d printed terrain piece (in grey PLA filament or whatever), you have the option to print the whole thing in your chosen colour of clear PLA, and have a whole table full of terrain lit with LEDs - perfect for hi-tech and advanced sci-fi alien settings. 





In this second CG render, you get an idea of just how cool this could look! With LED lights inside the hollow landing pad, pretty much all of it would light up.

 

On the right of the landing pad, you can see the energy lift, that moves between ground level and the landing pad's surface. And yes, it really can be raised and lowered during play!

 

On the left, you can see the large ion shield or force field, which can also be printed in clear filament. The ion shield is even designed to move around the outside of the landing pad, to provide excellent cover from any required direction.

 

The 3D modelling for this new design is complete, and it's currently printing in its finished form. So watch this space for printed pics very, very soon!!
