<p>We haven't made anything yet. No 3D printer as of August, but your coasters look great. Hope it will be a good first project.</p>

<p>These are great!</p>

<p>Amazing! Great way to add some awesome to your coaster is to swap filament colors halfway up! In your favorite 8-bit colors!</p>

<p>That is a great idea! I'm going to try that out and post a new pic.</p>

<p>Would love a customizable version so we could swap out the characters in the middle. Either way, very cool!</p>

<p>Interesting idea! I've never made a customizable thing: is there a way to input some kind of image or design to be part of the object rather than variable parameters?</p>

<p>I'm not that experienced with OpenSCAD but I know you could design the base STL (without a character) and then in OpenSCAD import the base STL and then a character STL to go in the middle, then export the combined STL. So just supplying a "blank" coaster would get us most of the way there.</p>

<p>Good idea. Since I'm not going to be able to learn OpenSCAD overnight, I've uploaded a "custimization package" with a blank STL file as well as a couple of Solidworks files I used, for those of you who want to make new characters or designs.</p>

<p>Also, if anyone has an idea for a game character or item they think would work well on one of these coasters, I may be inclined to design a few more...</p>
