Terrain4Print - Ulvheim

Recommended Posts





This project aims to expand the Ulvheim ruin into a full featured ruin city for your home 3D printer. You can already download the first two releases from thingiverse for free. There is also an earlier release with smaller houses, also available for free. Click the image to see them.

The pledge rewards are STL-file downloads. I will share the files with Dropbox and the download will be available for years. If you have access to a 3D printer you can print as many copies of the models as you like. You can also vary the scale for more variety. Any type of 3D printer works but FDM is the most economical. Most models will fit inside a 120x120mm print bed. Printed parts can then be painted.

The separate pieces fit together using a clip, also printed. This way you can build several different configurations with the same printed parts. You can of course glue it together if you need extra stability.

I have been making 3D printable terrain since 2016. I have done one kickstarter before. All files from that kickstarter are available in my store. But read on to the pledges before you buy anything there. I also have a Patreon page and all models done for that is released for free on thingiverse. This includes the previous three Ulvheim releases.

As base goal, I will create these expansions that are compatible with earlier Ulvheim ruins (type B).

Base goal 1 - Roof set

This set gives you the ability to create roofs on your buildings. Not everything has to be ruined. You can with these models build complete buildings, from the smallest shed to the largest castle. The roofs will build up like stairs. There will of course be options for half ruined roofs.

The roofs will be made to fit the Ulvheim A buildings. This is the smaller complete buildings.

The images below is only very rough sketches showing what is possible. The base goal does not include roofs for L-shaped or T-shaped building. Nor is it possible to put roofs on the hexagonal tower etc.

Modular roof ruin Modular roof ruin

Base goal 2 - More wall variations

Nothing beats variation and more options. Two new basic walls with lots of ruined options. One solid style and one arc style. Below are some sketches of possible layouts. The final layout is not decided yet.

Solid wall sketches Solid wall sketches
Arc walls sketches Arc walls sketches

Base goal 3 - Corners for round towers

Three new types of corners. With these you can build hexagonal, octagonal and decagonal towers (6, 8 and 10 sides). You will be able to build really high towers. There will be ruined options.

The base goals does not include floors or roofs for these.

Hexagonal and octagonal towers Hexagonal and octagonal towers

Base goal 4 - Horizontal ruins

The solid walls are made into ruins where the cuts go more horizontal. So you can build a long jagged ruin wall. There will be a couple of variants, from the available solid walls. there will be transitions from whole walls.

3 solid walls made into horizontal ruins 3 solid walls made into horizontal ruins

These are the pledge levels.

Ulvheim supporter

If you just want to cheer me on. I will send you a bunch (5) of Terrain4Print stickers. I will also create a unique sticker for this kickstarter and send you a bunch (5).

Ulvheim worker

If you are on a limited budget and only want a limited selection, this is for you. You will get the base goals and about one third of the unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads.

Ulvheim settler

This is the complete Ulvheim download at a reduces price for the first backers. You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads.

There is a limited number of these so be quick.

As a special thank you I will also send you a bunch of stickers.

Ulvheim burgher

This is the complete Ulvheim download. You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. These are STL-file downloads.

Ulvheim necromancer

This the complete Ulvheim download plus all my old premium files (from the shop). You will get the base goals plus all unlocked stretch goals. As soon as the kickstarter payments are processed you will get a download link the the premium files. These are STL-file downloads.

Ulvheim architect

If you want me to create something custom from your specification, this is for you. Together we will work out the details. It can't be something huge or overly complicated but expect a handful of models. For instance, wall tiles with a special symbols. A couple of special statues or gargoyles.

The files must match the general Ulvheim theme.

I prefer to make these models available to Settlers, Burghers and Necromancers too. But if it is something special you want exclusively, it can be arranged.

If you take this pledge, contact me and describe what you have in mind. This way we can agree on a reasonable level.

As a special thank you I will also send you a bunch of stickers.

Add on: Stickers

I will create a unique set of stickers for Ulvheim. Supporters, Settlers and Architects will get them for free.

Workers, Burghers and Necromancers have to add $10 to have them. Simply add $10 to your pledge. I will sort it out manually after the project is done. You will get 5 Terrain4Print stickers and 5 Ulvheim kickstarter stickers.


There are lots of more stuff to make for this. This project will have stretch goals. The more pledges that come in, the more stuff will be made. The first three stretch goals are decided already. When they are unlocked, there will be more made available if there is enough interest.

Since I reside in Sweden and use SEK (Swedish crowns) I present stretch goal as % instead.

Stetch goal 1 - Battlements 133% (20k SEK)

If you want to make a castle type building, playing siege scenarios. This will make it possible. It is basically a low wall with a strip of floor and battlement fitting around both convex and concave corners. The sketch below shows a corner piece for a convex corner. There will of course also be ruined battlements.

Stairs made will fit against the battlements.

Battlement sketch Battlement sketch

Stetch goal 2 - Windows 167% (also for workers)  (25k SEK)

Two new walls with smaller openings, like windows. This is a sketch of one of them. It will print in two parts, without support. It has a big arc. Inside it a thinner wall with two smaller arcs. The inside of the smaller arcs is open to make windows.

Windowed wall Windowed wall

Stretch goal 3 - Rubble piles 200% (30k SEK)

Eight piles of rubble, big and small. Stones in various format, pieces of wood, broken statues etc. There will be round piles and also piles with one or two flat sides to fit against walls and corners.

Two piles of rubble Two piles of rubble

Possible stretch goals

If the three stretch goals above are unlocked, we will have a vote on the next.

  • Big set of stairs more elegant
  • Floor set with wooden planks instead of stone
  • Pillars
  • Walls with door openings
  • Relief walls
  • Small balcony (from single wall)
  • Big modular balcony
  • Interior balcony
  • Wall fountain
  • Wall statue
  • Wall with big gate
  • Modular foundation to put everything on
  • Cemetary set with walls, gate, tombstones and mausoleums

Risks and challenges

I have been creating 3D terrain for quite some time, including a previous successful Kickstarter as well as my many Patreon projects. I feel I have always delivered what I promise (and have often over delivered), however this is not my full-time job and so there exists the possibility that full delivery might take some time if all the stretch goals are unlocked. My aim is that the models will be delivered as soon as they are ready - so base goals should be on time with any of the work-in-progress stretch goals being released piecemeal upon their completion. 
Personal/work commitments are the only real challenge, but I have a very caring family that fully supports me and understands my passion for producing my 3D creations.

This Kickstarter is for a major expansion of the now freely available Ulvheim ruins sets available on Thingiverse.  These are the same ruins I've been printing and showing off here

I have been very, very pleased with this set. They are very well engineered, and designed for 3d printing. 

Given T4P's communications with his Patrons on Patreon and his previous KS project (of which I did not pledge for), I don't think he'll have much of a problem delivering.

This project funded. After it funded, the creator rolled the first two stretch goals (battlements and windowed walls) into the base project for some pledge levels.

I like some of this, but think I'm set for 3d files for a good long while now.  Unless someone comes out with some nice Western themed buildings and assorted accessories.

So the creator cancelled this KS, in order to re-do it in a better format. 

As far as I can tell, one person told him that it wasn't a very professional looking KS,, and a couple hours later, he killed it. 

I'm bummed - I really like this set, and was looking forward to the expansion.
