In 2020, miniature games took off in the field of 3D printing. As a product designer and miniature player, I designed a 3D printable pop-up board to materialise fantasy worlds. The board is an essential part of tabletop war gaming. However plastic injection products are difficult to store and make, so I created a new form of board that can be folded into book form. Players can easily keep it on a bookshelf next to their game book. They can also take them out easily to share and play with friends. Compared to a plastic injection board, this new system also simplifies the traditional production process, from moulding and injection to packaging, transport and display.
