Top 5 Kickstarter STL Creators of 2022


Recommended Posts


If you had told me a couple of years ago that 3D Printed miniatures would be as huge as they are today… I might not have believed you. But now, in 2022, 3D printing is a quickly growing market in the world of miniatures. With constantly lowering barriers to entry, even beginners can print models from a 3D library and access figures they may not have been able to afford before.  Kickstarter is still a very large platform for the everyday creator and consumer to find and sell miniatures. Over $1,000,000 (million) worth of STLs will find their way into the general consumer's hands and onto their 3D printers. 


Well let’s grab our donuts and fire up the cruisers, because today we will be looking at the top 5 companies on kickstarter that create and sell STL files. This data will not include numbers on other platforms and only sales completed within the 2022 year on the initial campaigns.
