    That’s really excellent to hear! Please do let us know when you release the stl, I’ve been downloading a ton since I got my printer. I think I’ll scale these to match my antenocitis game planner, thanks for doing them!

    On that note, what would be a desired thickness for 25mm tokens? I am using 3mm + up to 1mm in the design, does that sound good for you?

    That sounds great. I can’t imagine needing the thickness more than that (unless you want to of course) but I think that 3mm up to 1mm should be fine. I’ll probably print at 3mm as that’s the same thickness as the tokens I got with the antenocitis board. Once again, these look excellent, I’ll look forward to knowing how they print then printing them myself!

    • I have some MicroArts acrylic ones, They are 3,2mm thick. Worked fine for me (my only gripe with MicroArt ones is theyat some point started to release only 15mm versions. Which are too small for me to be comfortable with, at arms's length...)
    • I've printed Lawson's tokens (on your basic thickness prnter paper - is that 60 or 80g/m2...?) and glued thme on 1mm thick cardboard. With one layer, they are workable, but feel a bit flimsy to me. A bit on the thin side, and picking them up from the table is problematic at times.
    • Doubled the cardboard (2 layers of 1mm, because 1mm is as thick as my round punch can take) and it seems to be thick enough.
    Based on that, I'd say 2mm or more is your sweet spot. That makes them thick enough to be grabbed by the edge, or pressed at the rim to flip them up.

    Note: personally I don't think 3-d printing is the right technology for making infinity tokens (sorry to rain on your parade, the design is really neat):
    unless you can print them in color, you'll end up having a stack of same-colored tokens on the table, making it difficult to tell them apart. Especially for those at the table who don't have hawk's eyes. And given Infinity needs loads of tokens, that's going to be a hassle.

    You could get around this by redesigning the tokens and making the symbols on them recessed. Have them the 2mm on the rim, but slightly less where the markings and writings are - and then fill the letters and symbols with adequately colored paint (won't work well on raised letters and symbols, as the paint will be quickly worn down when in use). This also allows you to stack the tokens for transport.

    Though, of course, makes the tokens more difficult to be double-sided (someting I really like about my cardboard ones!).
    But since we're at that, you might want to print them with a space for a rare earth magnet on the reverse, and magnetize the tokens. Works just fine - one of my local players has been using this trick for years. Especially good for Order tokens - and for organizing your storage of the tokens in general (though he did it by using a heap of spare figure bases he glued magnets under, and paper-printed tokens on top. Nb. allows him to easily update the collection for a new edition: just glue a freshly printed token on top of the old one, let the glue cure, and you're done).

    Lots of good feedback. Of course, this is mostly a personal project so if I like them and I paint them, good for me, and if somebody enjoys the STLs, then even more win!

    I am not a professional and this is not something I am making money on, so I guess I can just release the files and if somebody takes it from there, even better for the community.

    What can be easily done I think is to produce a hollowed bottom BUT in my experience with resin this makes them more prone to twisting when cured, so I was leaning into solid tokens at this size. Doing the tokens as an inlaid instead of a relief is actually quite easy, and a very good idea (although I would need to redo a bunch of them). That would allow this to be primed a light color and then filled in even with crayons or ink, which is interesting as well.

    I loved so much the previous version... I missed the new one for a looooong time; i was just so used to open my old bookmarks to see the new one XD

    It's so amazing! In particular, I loved the padding options and the bunch of player A and B logos, but is very good overall.

    I like so much I have decided to make a custom case for my tokens, upgrading some of them to the newest one.

    It's old CD case, and from the outside look like just a music CD with a custom cover

    But you can open up and you can see a "reference card" with the most used tables.

    Under the reference card, you can find the "playing tokens" in the right side, sorted over a magnetic sheet. All tokens are glued over 15mm washers.

    On the left side, you have the order pool. The magnetic sheet here is not glued over the case, but on a plastic sheet of the same size of the CD booklet, so you can remove it from the case while gaming:
