The Firefly board game takes up a lot of space. This caddy will help players keep their ships organized. It has slots for Upgrades, Jobs and Cargo. There's even additional Cargo and Stash slots, in case the player gets an upgrade later on.
The oval space in the lower left is for a badge sticker. It should fit these labels: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000UCT95K/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (1 3/4 X 3 3/4" Oval Silver Foil Labels).
Enjoy, and keep flying.


If your build plate is large enough, you should be able to print this flat, one at a time. However, I recommend printing it oriented so that the upgrade slots are at the bottom and touching the build plate, that way, if there is a little curling, the functionality won't be affected. You'll still be able to get your cards into the upgrade slots. You will also be able to print more than one at a time.
If you are printing on a slightly smaller build plate (like a Replicator 2X), you will have to print one at a time and Rotate on the Z axis to get the model to fit on the build plate.
There is enough tolerance to account for PLA shrinking. But if you are printing with ABS, you may have to adjust scaling a bit. If you print this in ABS, please comment on how it went.



Added a second version with:

  • Two more card slots and no emblem space
  • Changed orientation; so you can print it the way it loads in your slicer
  • Reduced width

What is the dimensions of this caddy? I have a Maker Select v2 and I think it is too big to print on my printer, correct?

It's about 10" wide by about 6" tall. I don't think it will fit your printer.

just fits on the Replicator 2 bed but so far even with a heated bed and enclosure it still wars too much around the edges. I put it into puzzle cut to make it smaller but for a single piece I have failed three times.

Have you tried printing it vertically? I have a 5th gen. Havent tried printing it. but vertically might solve the warping/lifting off the edges.

I will give it a try, thanks
