If you could have a "perfect" faction box 3d printed, what would your requirements be? How big would you want it?

I have access to a 3d printer and I draft for a living so I can whip up a STL pretty quickly.


I'd love to be able to stack the 5 faction boxes, as well as a "tray" to hold all the bits and bobs (nodes, resources etc) followed by one to hold the system discs.

Also I'm wondering if designing it for the borg as well.

One major requirement: it can be expanded with other factions.

Borg come out this month supposedly, and then there's rumors of Tholians* and Andorians among others. So we're looking at -8- Faction boxes rather than just 5. And that's for starters.

(*the assumption is the Tholians will be their own Faction, but they could also be bundled with a collection of "lesser" races as a faction. Other games have done similar I think.)

Each box would hold the console board, fleet cards, advancement deck, trade agreements, home planet, starbases, and ships & control nodes. Maybe some dice, depending. I use 5”x9” bags to store the items above for each faction currently. They wouldn’t have to be very deep, an inch maybe?

Would be nice if the box also had the faction picture on it, to quickly id it.

As much as I would like them to be big enough to hold the player boards, it means making them a lot larger than needed and might run into space issues for storage. They have to fit into the core box to be all that useful (not hard to do considering the size of the box). I'm fine if they fit everything else other than the player boards.

right now, I'm using the deck boxes from the Star Trek CCG game. They work perfect for storing all of the components and even the homeworlds (just not the player boards). They also fit nicely into the base game box (without the insert).
