What exactly is Runeforge Academy?
We create beginner-friendly courses showing you how to create the same models that we 3D print and sell on our website: Runeforge.com By the end of any course, you will have the knowledge to create your own designs.
Am I allowed to sell the models I learn to make in your course?
Yes and No. We supply the base models to students taking courses that require models from previous courses. (IE: We give a skeleton model to the student who wants to take the "Skeleton Warrior" course without taking the "Skeleton" course.) These models are ours and are not to be resold. However, any models that you make with the aid of our courses are yours to sell. Although we would appreciate it if you changed the designs enough to look unique from ours.
Do I have to take all of the courses?
No. Every course was designed to be a student's first course. You will have a finished printable miniature at the end of every course. (multiple miniatures for most courses) Although we do encourage you to take as many of our courses as you can. Some software features aren't applicable to every model so you should still learn something new in each course.
Do I own the courses after I pay?
When you purchase a course or a course bundle, you own it for life. You may access it whenever you like and you will never be charged for it again. If you purchase the "All Access Membership" you will have access to every course we offer for as long as you remain a member. You must continue to pay $9.95 per month (or $99 per year) to remain a member. You may cancel at any time. However, your access to content will be removed after your billed month has passed.
Is there a contract for the All Access Membership?
No. Membership is month to month. You may join for as little as one month or remain a member for as long as you would like. We offer a discount on the annual pass if purchased for one year (12 months) in advance. You may cancel the annual pass within thirty (30) days of purchase for a full refund.
Can I try before I buy?
Yes and No - All courses have the first several lessons available as a free preview. You should be able to get a strong feel for the course during this time. If you purchase and decide that it is not for you, we do offer a full refund within thirty (30) days of purchase.
What if I don't like the course? Can I get my money back?
Yes. We offer a full refund within thirty (30) days of purchase. This is available for individual courses, course bundles, and the All-Access Membership.
How long will it take me to create a printable miniature?
This will largely depend on you. However, we have had several students finish a course and print their first miniature successfully within three weeks.
I don't own a 3D Printer. Will you print my miniature for me?
Maybe - While we have done this for some students, we can't promise to do it for everyone. This will depend on how busy our printers are. We only have two 3D printers in house which are used to fill orders to end-use customers on Runeforge.com
