This is a "gear grid" for the hobby game Monster (by Kingdom Death).
This grid holds nine "gear" cards in its four cells and sits on a table in front of a player. The game ships with a flat, card stock gear grid on top of which cards are placed: the flat card stock allows cards to shift during play.
The idea behind this design is to solve that problem with a slimline 3D grid that can be built on machines with smaller build plates.
On my Flashforge Creator Pro, I can build one of these in about an hour and 15 minutes.
(If I build without a base, I can shave about 20 minutes off of that, but the hit I take on general stability and "neatness" is pretty severe, given the overall tininess of the design.)
As far as assembly goes, there is some post-build assembly required.
The grid is printed in three pieces: two "stem" pieces and a trunk. Each "stem" is connected to the "trunk" at the triangular junction pieces.
I used some cheap ABS filament to print, and 3M Scotch Super Glue Gel, which works just fine.
How I Designed This
Complete design and iteration notes can be found on my Kingdom Death blog.
I was inspired to make this thing by Fddlstyx's gear grid, though I did not start my design with any components of that thing.
I went through three major design variations before settling on my final design. Some images of the design process, which mostly took place using colored pencils and Tinkercad, follow.
