Summary

This is a very slightly modified version of user GMBridge's token holder design found here:
http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1329742

I just reconfigured the template holder slots to make them individual holes so the templates don't fall over when you take one out. There is still a slot for the range ruler and enough holes for all the normal movement templates. As GMBridge's design, this holds 8 dice, a damage deck, a wide assortment of the most common tokens and has places for 4 small ships or 1 large base ship on the lid. A very cool design that I have made a little bit better for my particular use.

Print Settings

Printer:

Flux Delta

Rafts:

Yes

Supports:

No

Resolution:

0.2

Infill:

20%


Notes:

It's a large-ish flat print, so it likely would benefit from a heated bed or a raft. I don't have a heated bed and forgot to use a raft for the base. My first attempt came out pretty badly warped on the corners using a Fleks3D base plate but it still sits flat and holds everything just fine. Better resolution will make the lid slide in place easier, but the tolerances are pretty tight. You may need to sand the edges to get a good fit.

How I Designed This

Sadly, I couldn't find the original model from GMBridge's design, so I had to edit the STL directly. I think this is not ideal, but it came out okay using Blender to edit the faces. I also ran the completed stl files through netfabb to make sure they were okay. There were still a couple of self-intersecting pieces, but it came out just fine using Simplify3D and/or Slic3r.

Very useful box. But I think that some of the letters are reversed :)

does anyone know the dimensions of this box?

114mm x 105mm x 45mm for the base. Since the lid slides into the base, it may get a couple millimeters taller, but not in any other direction. Hope that helps!

So you could potentialy fit 2 on top of each other in to a medium space of a Stanley organizer with 43mm of space left on the long side?

I'm not 100% sure. I don't have a Stanley organizer to check, sorry.

Found this on Etsy definitely a pretty cool design and layout. The listing where I found it didn't have proper attribution back to you (which resulted in me having to search the internets to find you, and thank you for this :))

It'd be cool if their listing did in fact attribute this properly back to you.

It appears that they are selling the original model that I modified for my upload. I didn't design this, I just made the template slots individual from the wonderful model uploaded by GMBridge here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1329742

I'm surprised anyone would pay that much for this box though. It only costs around $5-6 to make one with pretty dense infill. Still, thanks for pointing this out. I don't personally mind, and not sure what I can do about it anyways, but thanks again for letting me know. Glad you like the model, but you really should thank GMBridge. Cheers!

Hey ExcessRope,

Any advice on getting this printed for $5-$6? Shapeways quoted me around $100, which doesn't seem right at all. The Etsy place is selling it for $25.

Thanks!

Thisisvictor, unfortunately not. I know it only costs that in actual filament, but if you're paying someone else to print it, they are charging for their time, electricity, effort, and probably profit as well. So, it's up to them what they charge, and up to you what it's worth. I would suggest checking out 3dhubs.com to see if you could get someone local to you to print the part for cheaper though. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the reply! Just another reason to buy my own printer.

OMG that is crazy and thank for linking back to that, he's actually a friend of mine who I haven't seen since I moved :)

Nicely done. No excesive plastic bits and cool design.

Glad you like it, but all credit should really go to GMBridge for his great original model. I just noticed some folks mentioned the desire for the individual slots (I longed for them from my own printed original too). Thanks!

Will acrylic templates fit in this?

I'm not sure as I don't own any, but I would doubt it. Most of the ones I've seen were significantly thicker than the standard cardboard ones that come with the game. Sorry, you'd have to modify the design again to make sure the slots are thick enough.
