Title: 3D Printer Projects
Post by: Dragon on May 25, 2020, 20:08:01
Although I don?t have a 3D printer yet, I hope to get one eventually. In the meantime, I thought it might be nice to put together a list of some printer projects that look cool. Feel free to add to this list.

HeroScape Marro Drones: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4366551 (I have the game but one of the figures was lost. Plus, they have a neat ability that could work with another set of these guys.)
Dungeon Doors: https://www.myminifactory.com/object/3d-print-dungeon-doors-84321 (Maybe a cool replacement for the cardboard doors in the HeroQuest game.)

With projects underway, a larger spool holder is needed. Most that I've found don't fit on the smaller printer bed that I got, so this one looks like it might do the job: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:761893

One of the Ogre figures that I found before didn?t turn out to be what I was looking for, but this Ogre DIY set gave me what I needed. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3900002

I was looking for some cloud tokens to use a blocks for the Power Grid game. I came across this project which includes some cloud shaped lids that look pretty neat, so I've resized them to 40mm wide and I'm printing up some to see how they look just to mark the territories that aren't in use for a game.

Here's another one that I was considering.

I was just browsing on Thingiverse.com this evening and came across some cool stuff that I hadn't seen before. Here are 3 models that I've downloaded today... haven't printed them yet, but I'm going to try them out.

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:5026864 - CONAN by walades
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4913755 - Marvin the Martian by reddadsteve
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1068443 - Digital Sundial by Mojoptix  ... Check it out! It is a sundial that uses very precise shadows to display numbers!

By the way, the Portal Companion Cube turned out great! Lots of other models haven't come out so well, but that was a really good one.

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3056016 - Goliath fighter or Barbarian

This Goliath fighter printed out pretty well on my XYZPrinting Da Vinci Mini W+. I also printed Conan, from my previous post, and that one turned out well also. Both had some parts of the swords that were a bit thin and rough looking though, so not perfect prints, but decent.

Here's another HeroScape figure... one of my favorite dragons, Mimring.

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4345987

I've already printed one of these as big as I could get in my printer - 150mm. I really like this one.

I checked the other dragon that I had previously listed in this thread, and unfortunately, the model has big gaps in the back legs, so I never printed that one.

Here's one that I had printed a while ago and never added to my list. This is one of my favorite game upgrades - I used it to replace the flimsy cardboard 1st player throne for Stone Age.

Here are a couple more recent models that I've printed and liked...

Small Hinged Treasure Chest

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27635

Boss Monster - Boss Level Up Token

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4947321

For the Boss Monster Token, I adjusted the size a few times before finding a size that I really like - 38mm x 3mm. It squashes the embossing down a bit and makes it more like a traditional coin, close to the size of some old one dollar coins that I have, giving it a nice size for handling.

Last night I was looking through a bunch of coaster holder models on thingiverse last night, wanting to get my disorganized pile of coasters into a nice place. I came across this Castle style Coaster Holder.

https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3116072/files

I modified it in the preview window just a bit before printing, increasing the size to 125mm across because some of my coasters are a little bigger than others and I didn't want any getting stuck, and printed it using only 5% infill. It turned out great. :)
