3d Printed Infinity Base Marker Widget and More with Shapeways

     Marking the Front Arc of a base is crucial for Infinity, but is inaccurate to do using your eyeballs or a paper template. Thus, it was time for some quick engineering!

     This tool was designed in TinkerCAD, which is a free website where you can create 3d models for 3d printers.The tool uses the 3 base sizes of Infinity; 25mm, 40mm, and 55 mm. I made one for Warmachine/Hordes base sizes too since I am a nice guy.  If you do not have access to a 3d printer, you can get objects printed on professional grade printers at Shapeways. I am looking over Shapeways' miniatures page looking for neat additions to enhance to my games, like 3d tokens for Mice and Mystics or the Starbago from Spaceballs for X-Wing.

     There is a lot of potential for tabletop terrain on the miniature railroad page. as well. For instance, dumpsters for scatter terrain in Infinity. Coke machines or astromech droids as objective markers? Window vents to spruce up buildings, like my electrical box buildings? Every table needs a TARDIS, right? Ideas abound!
