OpenForge bases now support the OpenLOCK system. You can now use any OpenForge 2.0 internal 1x1, 2x1, 2x2, 2x4 and 4x4 tiles with the OpenLOCK system. We've been in discussions with Printable Scenery and we heartily support this open standard for locking tiles.
This set is made up of plain bases that can be used underneath really any tile at all.
It's worth noting that OpenForge is done on a 50 mm basis, and OpenLOCK on an inch basis. The difference on a 2x2 tile is only 0.8 mm. These bases are on the inch basis, but standard openforge tiles work just fine on them. The size difference is about the same as you can get from standard printing errors, so it's entirely unnoticeable if you use the metric tiles on top of the imperial bases. That being said, if you find the difference bothers you, you can print scale your x and y by 1.016 and you are on the inch scale for the tile too.
For instructions on how to get started with OpenForge, we have a set of tutorials. Want to sell OpenForge prints? Want to use OpenForge designs in your product, check out the license FAQ.
OpenForge is now a patron supported project. I use the resources that my patrons give me in order to get the resources to let me create more sophisticated tiles with a greater level of detail. Please, support me, and I’ll deliver an ongoing stream of awesome gaming terrain. You can find more about OpenForge and Masterwork Tools at our:
