Who said that 3D pens are all fun and games? We Did!
So this week we want to show you how to make game pieces with your MYNT3D printing pen. We're going to recreate some iconic game pieces, which come in handy if pieces get lost or broken.
This is a great way to upcycle old games that have been collecting dust in your closet.
You may also want to use them for decorating. And if you're feeling extra ambitious, create your own custom game tokens!
1. Load PLA wood filament into your 3D pen.
2. Trace a square template from an existing game piece onto a piece of paper.
3. Draw two layers of filament in your square template.
4. Switch to black filament to pen in the letter and numerical value.
These are fun for playing and decorating!
1. Trace the base (circle) of an original game piece, like what you find in the game Sorry! Fill in the circle with your 3D pen.
2. Draw a line with a ball at one end. The line should be about 1 ½”.
3. Stand the piece upright, centered in the circle.
4. Draw filament from halfway down the stick to the outer edge of the circle, like you’re making a skirt on it. Fill in any filament gaps.
1. Trace the outline of an original piece onto a sheet of paper.
2. Load translucent PETG filament to make a replica Blokus piece with a 3D printing pen.
3. Draw one solid layer of your needed shape.
4. Draw a second layer only in the center of the squares. Flip and repeat on the other side.
