Traveller Prelaunch Page is Live!

Type S Nearing Production

We are happy to announce that the production version of the iconic Type S Scout Ship from the Traveller RPG universe is almost complete! At 1:60 scale, it fits with our other ships scaled for 28mm miniatures, but can easily be rescalled larger or smaller thanks to the possibilities of 3D printing.

The Type S made its first appearance in the original Traveller RPG back in 1978, and has seen many iterations over the years. This Type S is based on the deck plans of the T5 version of the ship, with some adjustments to better fit the 3D space.

The Type S will be launched with a line of 3D printable Traveller miniatures in the first week of July on MyMiniFactory.com. The ship is 25 inches in length (634 mm) and weighs around 2 kilograms (4.5 lb.) and has been test printed on a Prusa Mk3 FDM printer at 150 microns.

Traveller License!

We would like to officially announce that we now have the license to produce ship designs from the Traveller RPG universe! In collaboration with Marc Miller of Far Future Enterprises, our next campaign will bring you two iconic Traveller starships to your tabletop in full 28mm scale glory!

Just a skeleton at the moment… but soon a ship…

We have hinted at this in our social media for a very long time, but we are currently in production now, starting with the Type S Scout Ship. This hopefully marks the beginning of a beautiful far future with 3D printable ships, ship minis, and 28mm miniatures of crew, aliens and other items to populate the thrid imperium.

Shuttle Alpha is Getting a Makeover

Whilst procrastinating work on Starship V, I decided to revisit the good old shuttle Alpha. This was the very first ship in the fleet, and my design work has come a long way since then.

The simple version of the shuttle does not have the modifications for the interior. This is something I need to address, and also there is no version of the detail version of the shuttle with the landing gear retracted.

So what did I do? Ignore these issues and start detailing the interior! There is a lot of wasted space in the interior of the shuttle. Especially once the standard layout tiles are in place. While it seemed a good idea to have seating, showing the inside of the walls, it used up almost an inch of interior space by itself. So I will probably revisit the interior tiles as well.

The much roomier interior…

In all, the planned changes include the following:

  • Restructuring the folders to have the detail version be default
  • Only adding detail to the lower section of the fuselage – with the top on, you can’t see the extra details anyway
  • Updating the low detail version forward fuselage to have the correct groove for supporting cockpit tiles
  • Detail version of the shuttle to get a version with landing gear retracted

If I have time, I am also looking at:

  • Doing a print in place hinged version of the shuttle ramp
  • Making new tiles for the cargo bay, removing the internal wall structure
