This is a modular, snap fit riser for representing verticality on your 1 inch (25mm) hex grid RPG play surface.
- Riser - Sections snap together infinitely and are 1 inch high each.
- Platform - Snaps onto the top and can support up to 33mm miniature bases.
- Foot - (optional) Snaps onto the bottom and will provide a bit more stability when you go more than a few risers high without blocking any adjacent hexes.
If you make some of these, please post a make with your favorite miniatures! Also feedback is welcome and appreciated!
- These are accidentally a pretty good stringing test, so if you're not well calibrated or your filament is prone to stringing, these may require a bit of light filing and/or heat gunning to clean up in post. Nbd.
- The final bridge at the top of the riser can be prone to just enough of a collision with the nozzle to knock your print loose in some cases when the part warps slightly due to cooling while printing. A brim can help with this if you can't adjust your part cooling to reduce any warping.
- 2 inch platform
- bigger foot (if needed for 2 inch platform stability at greater heights)
If any of these future things are desperately needed by anyone, let me know. My group just hasn't had a need yet, so I've deferred making them, but they will take very little time to make and upload if there is a public outcry for them.

Only the platform requires supports. It should be printed with the snapfit against the print bed. If someone can figure out a way to not require them, that'd be sweet.
Most of the upper surface of the platform is inset so there is a small ridge around the outside, and the bottom is as minimal as it can be. I could make the underside of the platform a slope, but that wouldn't allow enough flex for the snapfit to work well (and uses more material than the supports anyway).
