First, I would like to THANK the now over 7000 backers who have supported this campaign either via Kickstarter or MyMiniFactory! We wouldn't be here without you and to show our appreciation we are excited to share that the StageTop Wave One STLs have been released!
If you haven't received an invitation to redeem email...
The invitation to redeem is an email from MyMiniFactory, not Kickstarter. Please be sure to check your Spam/Junk Folder. The majority of the missing emails have been discovered to have been caught by junk mail filters. If you have double checked your junk mail folder and still do not have your invitation, do the following:
- Kickstarter Backers: Simply send us a Private Message here. No further information required.
- MyMiniFactory Backers: Send an email to email@example.com. Include your name, email address of your MMF account, and the pledge level.
The next most frequent issue is if you pledged using an iOS device and have privacy turned on. This prevents Apple from sharing your email address so you will need to send us your preferred email address via Private Message here on Kickstarter.
We will be prioritizing these requests so we can get you printing.
Wave One: Just getting started!
As a reminder, we have committed to release StageTop files in waves so you can get started printing as soon as possible. We anticipate 4 to 5 waves of releases to get you all the files promised in the campaign as some designs are still being developed and some are being improved. Here is the list of files in Wave One with printing tips, times and filament required.
Now let's build a table!
As we shared during our digital release updates, we have made some significant improvements to some core StageTop components. Unfortunately, that means the assembly video we previously posted is not entirely accurate. While we will update the assembly video at some point in the future, here is what you need to know to build your very own StageTop Gaming Table!
Step One: Print yourself some frames, frame locks, and tile locks. You will need 4 tile locks per frame. Be sure to print tile locks in the orientation provided to ensure their durability.
Step Two: Layout your frames and connect them with frame locks. Connect them 1st in vertical or horizontal rows, then connect the rows. Turn frame locks until snug or they stop, a full turn is not required.
Step Three: Attach legs. Turn until tight or fully seated. Legs shown here have the optional foot pad printed in TPU to prevent slipping and prevent scratches.
Step Four: Insert the tile lock into the hole marked 1, ensuring the dot aligns with the arrow. Turn right to tighten.
Step Five: With the legs, frame locks and tile locks installed now is the time to flip! However, we wont be doing that just yet so you can see how the rails are attached.
Assembly Note: Standard & Elite Rails are connected to the frames using frame locks. Straight rails connect 2 frames to ensure stability. Rails are typically attached after flipping the table but we wanted to show you what the attachment looked like.
Step Six: After the table is flipped attach the rails starting with a corner. The location of the frame locks are indicated by the dots along the edges of the frames to make it easier to find and align the frame & rail stems.
Step Seven: Snap in the Rail Clips. Once these snap in, the rail will need to be disassembled to remove, so be sure you are ready!
Step Eight: Snap in your PlayTiles. Use full PlayTiles to cover frame seams for additional stability.
Commercial Backers, We didn't forget about you!
In addition to the Wave One STL's you should have received the Commercial Printing License Agreement, StageTop Reseller Certificate, and a complete Media Kit. Hopefully these assets will help you drive interest in your prints!
What comes next?
Wave Two will focus on Themed tables as well as the Lite Rails which needed to be pulled at the last minute, and wooden plank PlayTiles. Our goal is to release Wave Two by April 8th PST but that date is subject to change.
Thanks again for all your support.
