3D factories … would there be a market?


  • YG, I’m still young and in college. No wife, and little money. But I manage to scrape together money for Axis and Allies when necessary, and this may be necessary


  • There you go, full set of glow in the dark factories…

    “Glow in the Dark?” you say… “Damn right!” I reply… “Imagine it is friday the 13th, your dog swallow one of your factories… All hell break loose, you have a game on saturday the 14th!!! What to do? What to do?..  Keep calm and Carry on (as the British once said)… Wait until night time, bring the felon pet for a walk until it poops! and Taaaaaaadaaaaaaaaaaaaa… Here is that chimney poking proudly out of the newly deposited, (and probably still warm…ewwww) to scale, Mount Everest of organic matter… There you go fellow… that glow in the dark saved the day! You can proudly walk back home and rest assured that your incoming game will have all it’s pieces…!”

    Disclaimer: Ya might want to spic and span that factory before the game… just saying…   The things can be painted so you can bet your butt that dog poop will stick…

    Addendum:  “But… DCC… My dog is too small to poop the factory… :(”   DCC: “Well, aren’t you a lucky one! You just got a glow in the dark dog at no extra charge… You are welcome!”

    Awesome set DCC!!! Thats not even a competitive price. That is ridiculously low. We the community can not thank you enough!

    Awwwww… You are going to make me blush… Did I mention free shipping every February the 30th if Donald Trump didn’t tweet for 72 hours? 😄

    On a more serious note, shipping will be what shipping cost me, no “handling” fees of hell…

    Just sayin 😉 Want your input DCC… is this a high price?

    Definitely higher then what I had in mind 🙂  For the full set of minor(15) + major factories(12) I was thinking in the range of $20 …. $19.99 if you UP this post 😛  But then again, I want to know what people think.

    $25 for the Airfield/Naval Base set (43 miniatures)

    $10 for the “classic” factory set (15 factories)

    Now, what do you guys think? (and remember, you don’t have to buy from me lol, you can download the files on YG’s website (FREE) and pester a neighbour or family member that has a 3D printer)… If you are really ambitious and don’t mind a divorce, you can buy your own 3D printer and explain to your wife the WHY this is so critical to have one in every household (But I am confident I am cheaper then a divorce lawyer!) 😄

    DCC these units look great.  And thanks for making the models free for all the players out there.  This community is one of the best out there with everyone sharing there ideas and mod’s, makes all the new people that find it want to share as well.

    I just downloaded and will print as soon as I get back from a work trip.  Don’t need to pester anyone, or even pay for a divorce lawyer.  All a 3d Printer cost me was a romantic trip to Florida back in January.  (without the Kids) 😄

    DCC, did you come up with a total price for the minor and major factories, and the naval and air bases with shipping?

    I would buy a set from you or two.


  • put me on the list for a couple of sets (setting up tent and waiting) please let me know my group would go nuts??

    Glad you like the models and that you have a 3D printer 🙂 So instead of pestering you are being pestered… LOL 😄  Enjoy!

    Thank you for your interest sir.  The only variable is the shipping… As my name suggest, I am from Canada (Toronto Area) so it all depends on where it needs to be shipped to… But I can’t see the shipping being very expensive as it is light and small…  If you give me a destination, I can investigate that for you.


  • @zack7979:

    I am starting some batches this morning, (it is currently 6 am) so I should be able to have a few sets done and ready to ship by monday for those interested.


  • Glad to know I’m welcome here. I will be letting you know within the next couple days if I want some. Gotta see how much damage paying for summer classes does first


  • Put me down for a set of major/minor facilities &air/naval bases


  • I printed some sets over the weekend and decided to change the composition of the sets:

    Airfield/Naval: base is now 25 Airfield and 25 Naval bases (total of 50 instead of 43)

    Minor/Major Factories: 20 minors / 15 majors (instead of 15/12)

    Price remain the same 🙂

    @DiveCrewCanada:

    Airfield/Naval: base is not 25 Airfield and 25 Naval bases (total of 50 instead of 43)

    I think that was meant to be read as… “now”

    corrected, thanks Mr 1-2-4-5-6 😄

    I have just bought 3 sets from DCC for myself and wittmann and Credulous over in the UK and have been impressed with DCCs service. 🙂

    One of our group did think the prices here were Canadian dollars, so just to mention that they are USD. There is a bit of a difference! 😞

    Really looking forward to receiving them - they look fantastic. 8-)

    DCC, I got the facilities, this morning.

    I’m really pleased with them.

    Thank you so much! 😄

  • Are they for sale individually?

    Oh Great!  Wow, that was actually pretty fast! Glad you like them, can’t wait to see what magic you will apply to them!


  • @Leatherneckinlv:

    Errr… I did not actually think of that, sent me a PM with what you need and we will figure out something 🙂

    Me too! Can’t wait to see what I come up with.

    Thanks again! 🙂

  • The facilities look great.  How do they look on the board - scale wise.  I am used to the old flat markers that don’t take up very much room.  Does anyone have issues with fitting pieces on the board when using 3D facilities?
