Hero Forge: User-Customized Tabletop Gaming Miniatures #3DxGames #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Guest curator Zheng3 has this to say about Hero Forge:

A few years ago, at the monolith dawn of hobbyist 3d printing, I had a conversation with a hobby shop owner about The Future. This mustachioed monger of miniatures opined that The Android’s Dungeons of the world would never, never! be 3D printing on-demand Uruk-hai. He might have been right; custom, high-end minis like those available from Hero Forge are worth the mail-order wait, and a sub-$200 printer’s plenty good for cranking out rank after rank of cannon fodder goblins.

Heads up, legacy foundries. The mammals are emerging from the still-smoking crater and have their wee, beady eyes trained upon your milkshake.

Hero Forge

Hero Forge is a service that lets you design custom tabletop minis, have them 3D printed, and delivered right to your doorstep. By using a sophisticated parts system and web UI, we’re bringing the flexibility, ease, and control of a robust video game character creator to the tabletop. 

Choose your race, your gender, your build, and your facial expression. Select and swap individual armor pieces, weapons, adventuring equipment, hairstyles, and faces. Choose your pose and watch all of the dynamically rigged parts and attributes conform to fit your selection. Choose the scale of your mini, and even the material it’s printed in. We’re bringing a high-tech update to a classic analog hobby and giving you the opportunity to breathe your vision and creativity into your miniature.

Whether you want to create stranger fare (good luck finding a dual-wielding halfling barbarian mini), capture key details (no one should be forced to make compromises on their dwarf’s beard style), or simply have more say in your mini than just the paint job, Hero Forge is for you!
