I love it. Printed one out, and I can't wait to try it out.

Love this design - looks awesome! We printed one, but unfortunately the markers didn't fit snugly enough into the holder - just the slightest tap sent the flying. Any suggestions for a fix for this? Thanks!

Try scaling the markers up a little in your print software, say 103% of original size, and try again. Please report back. Include details of your printer, material etc.

I had to print the pips at 109% to get them to fit with a satisfying amount of friction. 103% and 106% rattled around and fell out. Just FYI :D

Nice - it wasn't designed to snap in, so its great that just scaling it works.

We tried that and it worked great when using the markers at the edges of each section, but the middle of each section flexes too much and the markers fall out. Getting closer! If we knew more about designing we would try to add a crossbar from side to side so they don't flex, but alas, we're noobs and haven't a clue what we're doing!

Any advice on what settings to use when printing? I'm trying to print it using PLA 190º extruder and 60º heating bed. I'm experiencing a lot of warping, any advice will help.

Don't heat your bed for PLA, try a slightly hotter PLA temp, use fresh painters tape and make sure your bed is aligned to print a good 1st layer.
For ABS, you may have trouble printing such a large piece due to the print shrinking, hot box your printer and print at maybe 103% to allow for the contraction when it cools. Good luck and welcome to 3D printing!

Nice models, looks very usable! I've created a website to gather all board game improvements to inspire and showcase. Would you be interested in adding them to the Board Game Level Up site? I could help you with it, but still giving you the credit. www.boardgamelevelup.com

Very nice. Running the prints right now! All of the markers at once on my Tantillus, and the holders one at a time on my Pruse i3. I'll post pics soon!

Awesome - please post pics! I noticed there is another design, that looks really cool too: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:330820http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

I was about to do the same thing! I will try your setup out and see how it works.

That's great - please post photos, and let me know how well it lines up with your set.
