Watch your back, Hasbro, 3D-printed games have arrived
September 2, 2012
Consisting of character figurines, tiles, and dice, the pieces can be downloaded from Thingiverse and printed on a MakerBot. A complete set of parts takes several hours to extrude, but games can be played in just over 20 minutes.
The use of Tinkercad, a web based CAD program that works like a set of digital Legos, lets fans expand and modify the game easily. Because everything is designed and hosted in the cloud you can almost magically transform a character like the Dwarven Forge Master into a 1970s cop without extensive software training.
