Summary

Updated version of "Catan 'Puzzel' Board" by diw08 (version 2.2). I increased the thickness slightly, added reinforcing bars (as the original snapped if twisted), and shaved a little bit off the spurs (as the original didn't click together on my Ultimaker - I had to dremel them).

The STL refers to the version 2.2 STL from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:34439 - note that I needed to pass it through http://cloud.netfabb.com/ first.

Also created holders for the port tiles - you need 9 for a full set so I have also provided an STL/SCAD with all 9 on one sheet.

When printing on my ultimaker in PLA, I had to use a temperature of 225C - 220 didn't bind well enough to the print surface, leading to the spurs bending up slightly. The 9x port tile can really suffer from this - I recommend printing one at a time if you don't have a heated bed.

Pieces worked very well printed on medium resolution on Replicator 2. Fit the hex tiles exactly. Really need some kind of port tile holder to clip into the board now.

Excellent point. There's a couple of options: 1) Create pieces onto which can be placed the sea pieces, or 2) Create pieces onto which can be placed the harbour/port pieces. The problem with (1) is that due to the increased gaps between the hex pieces when using this holder the sea pieces don't fit well. I'm leaning in favour of (2) - but let me know if you've a preference.

I vote for #2 as well. Really excited to see how it turns out. Working on printing a full set of these at the moment so I can play!

I've created some port tile holders - they aren't perfect, but let me know if you have any problems. There's a sheet of 9 for ease of production, however you may want to consider doing them one at a time in case I've messed up.

Worked great, thanks!
