per Release
The OpenForge project was founded in 2013 by Devon Jones.  Since then, the project has released hundreds of 3D-printable tiles and scatter terrain usable for tabletop gaming.  In 2018, the project expanded to include a second designer, Evan Carothers who brings his signature style of scatter terrain to OpenForge.

This terrain allow gamemasters and wargamers to create a nearly limitless number of scenarios. They are modular and compatible with a wide variety of tiles produced by several companies and individual makers. We create these tiles for our games and yours.

The terrain is 3D printable on your personal machine, and via Shapeways and many other 3D-printing services. The designs are free on Thingiverse.  We release them under permissive Creative Commons licenses that allows you to remix, release, share or for some items even sell the models.

With your help, we'll continue to expand the free gaming tiles and scatter terrain to create a greater range of possibility for you, the GM or wargamer to create the scenarios you imagine.

Be sure to limit your reward to how many times per month you want to pay. I want to release tiles often, and I want people to be delighted with each release instead of worried about the cost.

OpenLOCK

OpenForge has added a set of OpenLOCK compatible tiles, and plans to continue to release OpenLOCK versions of our tiles.  You can find out more about OpenLOCK at Printable Scenery.  Our usage in this campaign is covered by the generous grant of a license from Printable Scenery.

You will gain access on the Masterwork Tools backer site to create ideas to be voted on by other patrons.

You will get access to all of the parts and pieces I use to make the tiles. My tile designs are built up from components that I design to work with one another and to make building new remixes easy. If you want to customize your own tiles, support me at this level and you will get access to everything I use to build the tiles.

Be sure to limit your reward to how many times per month you want to pay. I want to release tiles often, and want people to be delighted with each release instead of concerned about how much it's costing them.  If you support at this tier, but enable at least $2 total per month, you will gain the benefits of the $2 tier.

Everything above, plus you will be able to vote on tiles, accessories and ideas at the masterwork tools backer site.  I shape my roadmap based on the top voted items, with a few surprises here and there.

Everything above, plus your votes will get special consideration.  Want tiles or scatter to be a particular way, but most people don't prefer that, we'll be sure that there's a variation that meets your needs if practical.

Merchant

Merchants are a special tier. Many of our models are available under the CC-BY-SA, Newer premium designs are under the CC-BY-SA-NC.  At the merchant tier, you can ignore the Share Alike and Non Commercial clauses of the license, meaning that you can sell prints from NC licensed models, and you can incorporate any design into your own that you can cover with any license you want so long as you still attribute the project.

There are a small number of exceptions to this (< 10).  100% of those exceptions are models released prior to 2018 that we don't have the right to relicense because either they were contributed by others, or they remix in someone else's CC-BY-SA-NC design.
