Desktop gamers that have access to a 3D printer might be interested in the new service called DesktopHero, which is currently being created and will soon be available for free that allows you to design your very own customised desktop gaming characters.
Once created your gaming character can then be exported and printed on your 3D printer allowing you to add a unique edge to your desktop games, adventures and dungeons without huge costs involved.
Check out the video below to learn more about the service and software application that is being created by Andrew Stockton.
Have you ever made up a character in your head, and wished you could make that character real? Physically hold them in your hand? DesktopHero is a web app that lets you easily design your own characters for 3D printing. You start with a basic 3D figure – then add armor, clothes, hair, and weapons, crafting your hero onscreen.
When you’re done, you can download the file and get it 3D printed into a real, physical object – to paint, to hold, to use in games… to keep on your desk and stare at while you should be working… 😉 DesktopHero lets you turn your ideas into a physical reality, and we think you’ll love it. Features include :
– It’s Free and it’s Yours. Once you design a character, you can download the file for free, then use it however you want – including commercially.
– Make as Many as You Want. There is no limit to how many characters you can download! That means you can make multiple versions of a character with different weapons or clothing, or print an entire party of different characters! It’s still free.
– It’s Easy to Use. We’ve tested this on middle schoolers and adults alike – no artistic or 3d modeling skills required. Just use the buttons and sliders in the app to load assets and poses designed by our artists.
