What with 3d printers coming down in price, has anybody considered being able to print custom resin house cards?

Theres afew places round here that'll print stuff out for you but ive yet to ask them about prices or anything yet.

The biggest problem i would have is the design of the thing, i would have to pay a poor art student to make me a 3d model first.

Oh man… Down in price to what? $5000? Haha.

I'd want to know the price before I asked someone to render something.

According to Amazon, the dimensions of the Bara one are 8.5" x 5.2" x 2.8". Probably a good place to start asking about.

There's a couple of small printers available between $200-$500 (obviously not worth investing in for a one-off house card! :-) - but they're quite interesting all the same.

I've noticed a few custom Netrunner deck boxes on Thingiverse  - no reason why you couldn't make Thrones boxes. In fact, if you moulded the House sigil onto the front, you could use your deck box as a House Card.

Interesting. I know my dad wanted a 3D printer at one point. I'll have to ask him if he still does, lol.
