Created this insert for the Jump Drive card game from Rio Grande Games. Cards, credits and exploration tokens often got mixed up and jumbled during transport. This holds the cards securely, and if you arrange the exploration tokens as shown, they hold the credits in place nicely.
This is a long print. On my Duplicator i3 plus, it was upwards of 7 hours. You might be able to reduce this a bit by pulling infill down to 10%, but I ran a test version at 10% and there were some spots on the model that I wasn't happy with.
For mine, I was printing in PETG, which I still haven't quite gotten the hang of. Because of layer adhesion problems in initial prints, I left part cooling off until it got to the hexagons. Because some of the hexes require bridging, I figured that having some cooling at that point would help... and I think it did.
Jump Drive Box setup.
The interior of the jump drive box has a few cardboard pieces that need to be removed (or at least folded). Remove (or fold) any of the tabs that are in the bottom of the center section of the box. This should make exactly enough room for the insert to fit in.
Fusion 360, calipers and a couple test prints to make sure things would fit.
Since it's a long print, I don't know that I'll actively make changes to it, but a couple things I wouldn't mind changing:
fix the hexagon pattern: it's not quite even with the center of the big hexagon, and if you are triggered by stuff like that, it's something that will bother you forever. It kind of triggers me when I see it now.
add slots for the storage of the exploration tokens. Though this defeats the utility of the exploration tokens holding in the credit tokens.
Additional fillets on some of the edges. Really something I should have thought about before I printed, and now it's just a bit too late. You can easily get to all of the parts without ever taking the holder out of the box, so this is really really low on my list.
- Get rid of the cardboard box completely. Create a nice deck/token carrier that I can just take the game with me. Yeah... this one sounds reasonable.
