You know when you’re comfy as a lark in your castle and all of a sudden AN ARMY OF THE UNDEAD ATTACK. I agree, kids in this generation just don’t know how to defend against an occurrence of that sort. Your not gonna text your way out of that one! Oh, yeah, get a selfie of that demusclized skeleton warrior as he cuts your face. Fortunately, there’s a modular castle playset that allows you to set up specific castle attack/defense scenarios AND have fun doing it.

The 3D printable Modular Castle Playset is large set of model files, designed by Tim Wahlström in cooperation with the fine team at, created for parents and children who want to become more familiar with 3D printing at home. With a castle model that is modular and many more accessories, there is a huge number of castle constructing possibilities and play.

The set contains walls, towers, houses, characters, animals, and a myriad of different props. All parts are small enough to be 3D-printed in a build volume of 140 x 140 x140 mm (5″ x 5″ x 5″). The walls and towers fit together easily using a simple 3D-printable butterfly joint. You can make as many parts as you want to create your original castle layout!

Oh, I will create an original castle layout. Now, go away or I shall taunt you second time!

They have release a LOAD of files, 84 in total (and they’re taking suggestions for others). You have the aforementioned items, along with canons, ladders, barrels and boxes. All the .stl files are provided and available on just about any 3D printing related website imaginable. PLA filament is recommends, along with a printer capable of using PLA – a Lulzbot, Ultimaker, Sigma, Prusa i3 MK2 or Rostock Max Delta printer are all good choices.

The only thing their missing is the Settlers of Catan version. Oooo!
