BattleTech Thing Tag Drive

by Shiaic1

Hey guys, what about a 'Tag Drive' to make the BattleTech files really searchable?

I tend to tag as I browse.

At a minimum I'd suggest including (where relevant):

'BattleMech' / 'vehicle'
'Light Mech' / 'Medium Mech' / 'Heavy Mech' / 'Assault Mech'

Mech name,
Mech variant,
and a scale tag, eg. '6mm' / '10mm' / 'N scale'

Humbly suggested, for your consideration.

So long, and Thanks for all the Fish!

Well, even unrelated, generic things that someone else has tagged as Battletech have been DM'ed. Will there be anything left of this group afterwards? Hex bases perhaps?

Common Mech Sizes for the Battletech Board game

by jpri69

After doing some research online to find what the common ranges were for mech sizes in the 1:285 / 6mm range for lights, mediums, heavys, and assaults I created a mech sizer that can be placed into your slicer as you scale your mechs. The common ranges that I found are as follows:

lights should be about 35-40mm tall
mediums should be about 40-45mm tall
heavies should be about 45-50mm tall
assaults should be about 50-55mm tall

As some times the scales are all over the place this might help. Of course there are always Mechs that fall outside of this so again it is a best judgement.

Here is the Thing I created

I am also including a picture of it in use within the Cura slicer.
