Wait.. what? Surely they aren't 3D printed

Wait.. what? Surely they aren't 3D printed

This is the common reaction I get when showing our latest resin designs to our friends. We have been very busy experimenting with different resins and printer settings, as well as learning more software. I'm starting to get the hang of Blender, its a steep learning curve and probably one of the hardest programs I've learnt. But the effort is paying off, every time I go down to the printers I'm holding my breath - did the print fail or am I going to be filled with excitement? Will I like our design or not... Initially as I was learning I had a significant portion of prints failing for various reasons, lately its becoming more rare I have a failed print, thank goodness. As failed resin prints are messy, time consuming and costly. Check out our latest design for the board game Arnak (the staff) - not for people who have a fear of snakes :-)

And if you've been following us, you'll know we have a few more Arnak upgrades that are now ready to go on our website. We will publish our Arnak upgrades in 2nd week of August. Here are our compasses:


And we have old notebook player markers as well as magnifying glasses (here we are considering brown or gold for the magnifying ring).

We definitely need to get faster at our painting. 



Note: 3D tokens, upgraded items and organisers are in no way affiliated or endorsed by the producers of the board games we are designing organisers and components for. Artwork is completely original and designed in our own imagination and style from scratch. Our coming soon blog is sometimes used as a thoughts process in our design work and are experimental or conceptual for the board games we own. They may not become available for sale and are purely conceptual. As with all art work and creativity process, some things work out, some we trash, some we shelve, or only use for ourselves. Before we decide to make a product available we carefully assess if they are suitable to sell, that they pass certain criteria, including but not limited to play testing, durability testing, printing feasibility, effort, and any other costs associated to sell or produce and share. We are a very small business so we do not have the means sometimes to make these available, but our enjoyment comes in this hobby from others enjoying the creations we have made. If you like our creations we would love to hear from you.
