How long did it take to build the Dota Map Model?
The 3D models of the DOTA map were created by a team of 8 designers over six months. To produce each unique full-size model, it takes over 30 hours of combined 3D printing time, and 32 hours of manual assembly.
What is the material used?
The map is 3D printed in sandstone-like material; the base comes in a variety of attractive stained hardwoods, or you can select a custom treatment.
What options are available for customization?
If you can think it, most likely we can build it. If it is simple changes for a particular type of wood base or the color of the wood stain, this would be a very minimal charge. If you want an all-metal box or larger version, then the customization pricing would be much more significant. You can contact us with your ideas and we will give you a firm quote for pricing. Before any fabrication occurs, we will reach out to you to see if you would like any customized amenities or features built into your product.
Can I order a larger model?
Yes, if you want a super-sized model, we can do that. Need a 15'x15' model? No problem. Please contact us for a quote.
What is the wait time from the day I order it until the day it arrives at my doorstep?
We would like to have 4-6 weeks of production time. If you need it in a hurry, please contact us and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.
How are these shipped and what are the shipping charges?
The full-size model is shipped via common carrier and will be placed into a specially built shipping container. The smaller models, Dire and Radiant, will be packaged then shipped via one of the common services (FedEx, UPS, USPS). For continental USA customers, all shipping will be Free. For the rest of the world there will be shipping charges of $250 for the full-size model and $100 for the radiant and dire models.
Are the models painted?
No. Our 3D printers print in full-color (up to 750,000 colors). They are built with a sandstone-like material and then have a very special matte finish applied.
Will WhiteClouds be building different versions of the map?
If we have enough interest from the Dota community, we would certainly consider doing so.
What happens when Dota changes the in-game map?
This doesn't happen very often. Very much like the car industry or smartphone industry, the model may become outdated. You don't need to upgrade your model. If you would like the most recent model, we can sell you an upgraded model for a discounted price.
What version of the game is this for?
The map model represents the game as of the 7.07 (Dueling Fates) release.
