Dungeon Forge is run by two friends that grew up playing games like Warhammer and D&D and like many others, we were frustrated with the ever increasing price tags on our favourite hobbies and the lack of high quality printing stores available within Australia.
We’d been 3d printing for personal use over several years, when in 2021 we made a significant investment in high quality equipment to turn our passion for all things tabletop into a business.
OUR FIRST STORE
We originally started out selling on Etsy, where word of our print quality quickly spread through the community. Before long we decided to take things to the next level and launch our own website to really deliver the best experience we could.
The biggest part of our success is down to the incredible quality that we’ve been able to produce with our high end equipment – we knew that as miniature buyers, it was always disappointing to get a miniature from a store that looked nothing like the 3D render – and we believe we have achieved that benchmark with our high resolution printers, premium quality resin and extensive post curing process.
We currently print at 8-12k resolution depending on the size of the miniature, with 14k technology due to arrive in April. By staying at the forefront of the industry, we commit to offering the highest quality miniatures for our fellow hobbyist.
All our prints are printed with Phrozen ABS 8k resin. This involves a more complicated processing and chemical hazards than the popular water based miniature resin many amateur printers use, but we believe it delivers a much higher quality product and matt finish for the effort.
OUR POST PROCESSING
All completed prints are washed in a chemical bath of Phrozen resin wash cleanser which binds to uncured resin on the surface. From here it is then placed into an ultra-sonic cleaning process to further clean the surface and bring forth finer details.
Finally its cured in a Phrozen cure mega chamber on a rotating platform with 405nm of UV light for a completely even and thorough hardening process.
We offer free shipping to all orders within Australia, yes this means we are literally losing money on small orders, but high shipping cost was always our main frustration as a hobbyist when starting this project and offering a free shipping model within Australia was one of our biggest goals, we got you guys.
For our international fans don’t worry, we still offer paid shipping world-wide!
We value every customer as a fellow hobbyist and genuinely pride ourselves on the customer experience we offer. Feel free to reach out to us directly via our social media pages for instant responses, we love to hear from you guys!
