Design Brief

At MyMiniFactory, we love board games and have a whole category dedicated to this art. But we all know the frustration that comes with losing a piece for Monopoly or Risk, or not being able to play Catan because you don't have the right expansion. Well, well, well, looks like we could use some 3D printing here. For this design challenge, we need you to design spare parts and accessories for board games.

Design a suitable board game spare part before June 12th to be in with a chance to win a Sindoh 3DWox DP200.

The Sindoh DP200 is one of the newer user-friendly, auto-loading filament and real-time print monitoring 3D printers in the 3DWox series.

About Sindoh

Established in 1960, Sindoh has been equipping and striving for the best. Entering the 3D printing market in 2016, their time has not gone unnoticed. Focused on getting the inexperienced equipped, Sindoh’s user-friendly features are top of the range.

The part should be adapted for 3D printing. It must work on your device and not already exist on MyMiniFactory! As always each spare parts design competition has unlimited entries, so the more you upload, the greater your chance of winning.

Upload Essentials

  • Two photos - one on plain background, and next to the board game it is from (in use)
  • The name and edition of the game (if special edition)
