This showed up on my RSS feed concerning 3d printing when you were asking questions on forum and twitter.

Glad you guys finally got to a scholarly discussion of this topic (I have been requesting this topic for quite awhile). We have a guy in our board game group who is about to get a 3d printer and he had all of our group excited about it. I was sad that the game Pocket Tactics off of Thingiverse was not mentioned as it is a fairly traditional board game that mimics the stylings of Heroscape. I think that a discussion of this calibre cannot take place without mentioning 2 other helpful resources: 3d Warehouse (once owned by google, now owned by Trimble) and Shapeways (briefly and quickly mentioned at the end of the discussion) a website to purchase 3d printed items from producers if you do not have access to a 3d printer). Otherwise, it was a very good discussion, especially the 3d scanning to printer portion and the acetone finishing.

You can find both Catan pieces and general board game items on Thingiverse (including some nice Power Grid upgrade pieces).

I think the biggest promise of 3d printing is: 1) Prototyping (which was brought up in great detail by Scott and Don and 2) Upgrading games (or "pimping out") (for example: I am thinking about asking my friend to print some playing pieces from Pocket Tactics for my Rex game to replace the cardboard army pieces).

This is a really nice modeled set of Catan tiles on Thingiverse as well. probably one of the coolest upgrades out there for the game.
