This is a closeable, hinged holder box for the Settlers of Catan number markers/tokens. This is the fifth version and seems to have most of the design bugs ironed out. It fits all of the tokens in an expanded set (A thru Za, Zb & Zc), plus one or two extra. It is designed for the markers in my 1999 edition of the game, which are approximately 1" (25.5 mm) in diameter. I do not know if the game manufacturer has changed these specifications on more recent game sets. If they have, and you are able to modify .stl object files, you can uniformly scale the height and depth to accommodate larger or smaller number markers. You can stretch the width of the object files if your number markers are thicker. See the photos for details.
The photos included herein show my sanded holder -- I like the texture of sanded 3D prints more. When you have printed the pieces, there will be some clean-up necessary to remove hairs and printing goop. I suggest carefully and lightly sanding the hinge and clasp balls/bubbles so that they more smoothly interface with the receiving cups. Also, be gentle and careful when snapping together the hinge. It is a little difficult, but if I made it easier, the connections would be too sloppy for my taste.
I decided to make this holder because we were storing the number markers in alphabetical order, wrapped in a few rubber bands (having them in alphabetical order makes it easier to set up the standard game). It was a bit of a pain to get the rubber bands to hold in place. This holder makes the storing process much easier. I hope you enjoy.
