I uploaded the current card holders (Sleeved Cards) I made for this game to Thingiverse.

I keep my cards in a wooden box and thus I needed card holders that can eeasily be extracted from the box when its time to play, and thus came up with this design for it.

Will continue to put them up as I go along. Hope someone here might find them useful!

This is awesome! I just bought a 3D printer last week and have been looking for useful board game upgrades. I will definitely be printing these.

Just missing the last expansion now, here is the project so far:

The weather here does not allow for painting, but will update as soon as that is done.

Have you considered a version that staggers the location of the tab, like in a filing system? That way, when you have everything tightly packed, you can still see a fair chunk of the sets with ease.

Yeah, but if the font of the dividers requires a raise of say ~8mm per divider, there is no way that I can see to accomplish this in a way that makes it possible to store away.
If you come up with something that works, please share!

I'm thinking something like the way an index card file works, with the next tab shifting over a couple of centimeters, so that it has a cascading and resuming effect.

It shouldn't require a lift, but merely a relocation of the already existing tab.

Kind of like this:




You might just have three tab placements. Left, center, right, which would mean only having to create the center-placed tab file, then swapping your existing left-sided tab file to right-sided.

Yeah, that would work, although maybe one should then completely remove the rounded cut-out from the backside?

Personally I use printed dividers within the holders and only use the printed tab for picking up/dropping down the holders in the boxes.

True, a curvy backside is never necessary. But when it comes to visual aesthetics, it sure is nice.

I wonder, though. Would cutting back on material (keeping the curve) make printing more affordable? I've only ever ordered things printed off Thingiverse or from sellers on Etsy. I don't have my own 3d printer, so I have no idea what the variances are in terms of cost/time to print for such a simple thing as a curving edge.
