I'd love to hear anyone's experience with current-gen consumer 3D printers for designing game prototypes.

I've just started playing around with both game design and 3D printing fairly recently, and I'm having a fantastically fun time finding components on Thingiverse or building my own via Tinkercad and printing them for a game idea I'm fleshing out.



Here's a quick look at my current prototype -- it includes 3D printed miniatures for both player characters and enemies, 3D printed tokens and card markers, and large 5.25-inch hex frames for my hex tiles (printed on cardstock) to fit into.

If anyone's curious, I'm using a Monoprice Voxel, which is a re-branded version of a Flashforge printer called the Adventurer 3. It's usually around $399, and it's been mostly easy to use, as always a bit of a learning process, but definitely more plug-and-play than other 3D printers I've tried in the past.
