3D Printed Planes

SimplePlanes is going the extra mile to bring your designs to life, from digital to physical.

3D printed in full-color sandstone, your favorite creation will become a real-world model aircraft. Showcase your best work in the office, workshop, game room, or your secret underground lair.

We partnered with EUCL3D, a devoted team that specializes in manufacturing unique gaming merchandise, customized and truly one-of-a-kind. They exist to assist gamers who find it difficult to locate great collectibles, beyond the typical t-shirt, mug, or bumper sticker.

As an extra special bonus gift, each order will be shipped with biodegradable packing peanuts, which dissolve in water. If you want more peanuts, you must order more planes.

If you are interested in owning a materialized token of your own talent and genius, load up your handiwork in SimplePlanes and order a print of your model-to-be inside the game, conveniently accessible in the plane designer menu.

HOW TO WIN A FREE PLANE:
As a special promotion, the next Sky Cup tournament winner will be awarded a complimentary EUCL3D print of their choice in the largest available size.

About This Game

BUILD AIRPLANES


You have the tools you'll need to bring any airplane to life. Snap parts together to build your airplane's body. Place engines to add thrust. Design and attach wings and then strap yourself into the cockpit and see how it flies.

DOWNLOAD AIRPLANES


Over 100,000 airplanes are available to download for free from SimplePlanes.com Find anything from old WW2 bombers to next generation fighters to sci-fi spacecrafts. You can upload your own airplanes and rise through the ranks from a bronze builder to a gold level builder.

DYNAMIC FLIGHT MODEL


Flight simulation at its finest. Every little change you make in the designer impacts how the airplane flies. Weight distribution, thrust, lift, and drag are all calculated continuously while flying. Parts can break off in spectacular fashion while flying due to over-stress or by hitting something. The fun won't stop there though. You can keep on flying even with a missing wing if you've got the skills.

CHALLENGES


Climb into the cockpit of one of your custom aircraft and see how it does in the challenges. The challenges will keep you entertained for hours. Land on aircraft carriers, escort bombers, dodge surface-to-air missiles, race through courses, and so much more.

SANDBOX


Use all available parts to build airplanes with no restrictions. The sky is the limit. Literally.

MODDING


Modding is fully supported so you can build your own parts and environments. Download our Unity package which includes specially designed tools to aid in designing and building mods which you can then share with your friends and the community.

Absolutely amazing game to just do what you want pretty much. It's a lot like Kerbal Space Program but not in space, and you can build a variety of vehicles such as planes, helicopters, jets, tanks, boats, cars and probably many more. I give it a 10/10

When is multiplayer coming? D:
On a more serious note, this is a brilliant game to test your creativity to the test in creating all kinds of aircraft, or cars, and I really recommend this game. My name is PixArt by the way

I have played simple planes for a little while now and i think its a great game because of how easy it is on the PC and how easy it was to make a plane that flew of course ill list the bad points one of them would be its somewhat boring and what i mean by boring is that its the samething over and over and i get kinda lonly doing the samething over and over so all i can suggest is some sort of mulitplyer
