PD Coliseum


The Coliseum was designed for the best model building and game play experience possible. Each of the kit's features has been grouped into multiple PDF files where virtually every page is set up with multiple layers to customize your build. Options include straight and curved sections along with a podium and ground tiles. The outside walls of the main sections are available in 2D or 3D versions while the inside seating areas have optional stairs and arena entrances. The dignitary's podium is modular as well and can be placed anywhere in the seating area. Its pavilion-style roof is also removable for ease of game play. With each section being modular, not only can you use any set of ground tiles as your arena floor, but the ability to create any size and shape of Coliseum is up to your imagination!

Cut files are included for those with Studio software compatible cutters.

Is this model able to have a the build split into 2 levels allowing for different build configurations for height, effectively making 4 build configurations as a circle or oval?

How many pieces of cardstock (and how many inkjet cartridges) does it take to print the entire thing (ie, enough pieces to build it as shown in the main picture)? And just the normal 110 lb stuff, or do you need to use heavier paper?

I've been admiring this model for a couple of years now, but I'd like to have an idea of the resources required to actually build it before I get started. And, as the Oct 16th commenter, I will have at least 200 hours of work ahead of me since I don't have a cutter and do all my cutting by hand with scissors and hobby knife.

Construction is not for the faint of heart - it took me over 200 hours as I never could get the cut files to work. But...once you have it built and set the thing on your gaming table for the first time, you are in awe. This thing is over 4 feet in length and looks amazing!!!

Yeah, but does it fold up and fit into a 6 x 8 box?

I just bought this article. The project looks really beautiful.
I fear anyway there is an error in the PDF files. I mean some important images are missing, just e.g "streight 3d wall". Unfotunatly the other too. Can you please check it and then fix it?

All of the files that downloaded on my computer have a "studio3" extension; I can't find any pdf files and my computer says it can't open it. I did a search on the internet and all I got was websites that say they can help but just want to "scan your computer" and then tell you there is something wrong that they can fix (even though there isn't anything wrong), Does anybody know how to open it, or is there some way different to download it to get the pdf files?

Hey Margaret, when you first download and unzip the files you should see a folder named Cut Files as well as the 15 PDF files. You will want to make sure you have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer to view the PDF files. The .studio3 files are cut files for those people who have a CraftRobo or Silhouette cutter that use the Studio software (available free on Silhouette America's website). If you don't have a cutter machine, you can ignore these files.
If you've opened the Cut Files folder you can get back to the main screen of files (including the PDF files) by clicking on the up arrow or the folder with the 2 dots next to them at the top of the list.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
