No, Infinite Dimensions Games Inc. sells only digital models as .stl files for use with your own 3D Printer.
We test and recommend printing our files at 0.2mm layer height. We find this produces the best results vs. time on a well tuned printer. Some people may wish to print doors and small pieces at a smaller layer height.
This differs depending on printer, material, slicer and infill type but we generally recommend around 15% infill.
We add our own snap-off supports to the parts of the model that need them so in general you will not need to add any support material while slicing and printing with a FDM printer.
The Wightwood Abbey Core-set released on August 12th needs approximately 4,092g (just over 4kg) of PLA filament to print (using 15% infill).
Factors that can influence amount of filament include: your printing scale, infill amount and type, and how much wastage you have at the end of your spools.
- Abbot’s House 430g
- Gatehouse: 400g
- Stables 350g
- Scriptorium 1,430g
- Church 1,490g
As a startup company we do not yet understand the ramifications of offering an ever growing number of customers indefinite access and support. Although we would like to and plan to offer access in perpetuity, at this early stage we only feel confident enough to guarantee a one year window. We would rather be upfront rather than suddenly surprising our valued customers if something unexpected happens. Regardless it’s always best practice and we highly recommend for everyone involved to back-up and keep safe their downloads.
The 15 maximum downloads is for security reasons, it’s set to protect the accounts from being shared and used illicitly. If for any reason you reach your maximum downloads a simple email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org will be all you need to have it reset.
This is hard to answer as their are many factors involved. We recommend an FDM printer printing in PLA plastic with a bed size of 8×8 inches (203x203mm). We have tested our prints on Prusa i3, Ender-3, and ANET type printers and know they work. We will try to establish a list of other printers for you in the future.
Print all the pieces at 50% scale to use them in 15mm games. All the models will print at that scale, however, they will naturally come out with less detail. We have successfully printed all the parts at 15mm and are happy with the results. You may find that certain things like doors won’t work at 15mm and very delicate parts around windows, torch brackets and the like might be weak. Our recommendation is to trim these off after printing at this scale. Doors can either be glued into place or left out. In fact, doing this we have successfully tested some parts printing down to 4mm scale.

We have had a few people have issues downloading a file. We have spoken at length to our host and they have assured us the issue is not with them. Everyone who has had an issue has been able to download it eventually. Try downloading it one at time, or try downloading in a different browser such as chrome, or firefox (so far Firefox has showed the most consistent results). This has worked so far. Sorry for the inconvenience. If you have an issue with your download limits please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please check out our Infinite DImensions YouTube channel where we have posted a video on how to assemble each piece of the abbey after printing. You will find tips for tools, cleanup, door installation, and glueing. In the future we will add new videos there based on your needs and our new products.
When you make a purchase off of www.infinitedimensions.ca you are purchasing the right to download and use a certain set of .stl files.
.stl is a standard file extension commonly used for 3D printing. It contains all the data of the 3d polygon models we sell and allows you to print our designs on your home printer.
You use a .stl file by opening it in a Slicer program that comes with your own 3D printer. The Slicer program gives your 3D printer specific commands to print your file.
