Keen Software House a.s., independent developer and publisher of Space Engineers game, has partnered with BinaryNow, Inc. to launch “SPACE ENGINEERS PRINTS”, a premium service that allows Space Engineers players to receive a full color plastic 3D model of space ships they have designed in the game.
“We use a photo realistic full-color plastic 3D printer to bring space ship models out of a virtual game into the real world,” said Premysl Pech, CEO and Founder of BinaryNow, Inc. “We are turning the actual space ships or other objects that gamers created into something that is physical and touchable to encourage gamer’s creativity.”
SPACE ENGINEERS PRINTS service will be available via website, www.spaceengineersprints.com to the public today, October 6, 2014 and will cost $80 for a space ship 3d print. Initially, this service will be available as beta only to players in USA and will support 3d printing only for small ships. Later this year, option for large ships and other objects will be added to offer and territory will expand to Canada and other locations.
“Apart from implementing new features and developing Space Engineers, we have also been considering of other ways that can satisfy our players, and the option of 3D printing their creations is something that we had in our mind for a long time now” said Marek Rosa, CEO and Founder of Keen Software House. “It will make us happy to think a nice 3D-printed spaceship created in Space Engineers is decorating somebody’s room”.
