I'm building a prototype with stackable tiles in several different shapes. I 3D-printed some tiles that lock together nicely, but it is too expensive to 3D-print all the tiles I need to make multiple copies.
My solution so far is printing out the tiles on card stock, gluing to a bristol (i.e. presentation board) covering with a plastic sheet usually used to cover books. On the bottom I glue a layer of non slide rubber sheet to encourage pieces to stay in place.
I then cut the board into tiles with a utility knife and a straight edge.
- Does anyone have better ways of making tiles that don't slide much?
- I am making the game board the same way but I am having trouble getting the bubbles out from under the coating. Any tips?
- Can a stack paper cutter be used to cut out the tiles which are 4 layers thick?
