Several years ago I created tray dividers for Academy Games, Inc. Conflict of Heroes series. These were cut and fold paper dividers that kept the numbered counters neatly organized in sets of 5 so they were not only easier to find, but when some were removed for play, they kept the rest of the counters from falling over in the tray.

Then the other day it occurred to me that these could actually be more sturdy if they were 3D printed, so remeasuring and using various tools, I created just such a model for both the small and the large "wells" in the Conflict of Heroes awesome game trays.
The base game of Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! – Operation Barbarossa 1941 (second edition) has 15 large wells and 6 small ones. The German and Russian units each take up 3 large slots each plus an additional one each for the Conflict of Heroes: Monster Tanks of the Eastern Front expansion. I'd tried to print three grey and three tan ones and the rest in white, but my tan looked too much like white when all was said and done, so the effect wasn't as cool as I'd hoped.
However, in all I'm happy with how they turned out and they work great as replacements for the cardstock ones. I look forward to adding them to all the other games in the series too.
Free STL files available on Thingiverse. You can also order them there printed as a set for a low price (no money to me at all!).
I am almost exclusively a solo gamer and look at the gaming scene seen through those eyes. I also literally like alliteration. TWITTER: @onesuponagame
