Catan Border with Port Tile Cutouts by rbuckbailey Feb 24, 2013

Description

For use with JAWong's brilliant 3D Catan tiles, thingiverse.com/thing:26979, this border is tinkered off of Triskite's "Working Settles of Catan border in 2 prints," thingiverse.com/thing:21460. I have scaled it down vertically, which makes the joints print a little ugly but they still notch together, and added cutouts for Port Tiles.

New 4mm version available (2013-3-29). It's not obvious in the pictures, but the road and city cutouts are a little higher, too.

The inset tracks and circles will fit my Round Player Pieces, thingiverse.com/thing:46065.

The port holes are scaled to fit the original cardboard pieces or my own Catan Port Tiles, WIP at thingiverse.com/thing:53812.

The 5-6 Player Expansion includes port tiles. (How-to-assemble picture soon.) If you're using this, you may also want 5-6 Player Number Tokens: thingiverse.com/thing:70996

I've actually been using MeshLab to split up the individual parts from your STL files. I'm redesigning them to suite my own needs. I'll post them up as a remix when they are done. Thanks!
That's interesting. I printed in ABS and actually had to do a little sanding to make them fit. That was on our Makerbot Replicator 1. Machine tolerances can vary a lot.

Sorry Baz that I don't have the time right now to chop up the plates for you, but sites like tinkercad.com make that kind of modification very easy to do. Good luck with your borders!
Anyway we can get the individual pieces posted? I can't print the whole set on my ToM.

Instructions

If these curl on removal from the build plate, you may want to try baking them at 155f on a nice flat baking sheet.

Print 3x, and alternate pieces as follows: three-sides with port, two-port-right, three sides no port, two-port-left, repeat.
