First Fabric Infused Project

One of the problems with modeling vaults, especially with 3D printing, is the many small pieces either don’t print right or get mistaken for other pieces. A new idea is to use fabric infused with the printing process to keep all the pieces intact and grouped together. This  may help the modeling a much smother experience and allow for demonstration by quick disassembly and reassembly.

Life Counter for MTG – Iteration 2

DSCN7076

Working on the life counter again. I tried printing a smaller one with larger gaps but it still wouldn’t move. For the next go around, I reworked how the counter operated. The goal was to make the counter assemble-able instead of a one shot print. I split the base in two and made the discs sit on a star-shaped rod.

DSCN7078This worked wonderfully! the counter actually is functional now. However the base is a little flimsy, which will be fixed with a thicker bottom. Overall, this iteration turned out pretty good. I am hoping to make a variation of the counter for another card game that would need four place holders, which may pose a challenge.
