print a solid border for catan

one of the items on my list of 'things to print' from thingiverse.com was a border to keep unruly settlers of catan land tiles (aka terrain hexes) in place.

I tried printing this directly, but the interlocking mechanism wasn't fitting together properly.

While tinkering with the border, I decided to see how many pieces I could fit on the replicator's platform at once, to reduce the number of total prints required to make a border.

Here's the result:



Grab the .stl from thingiverse, here.

I used:
1% infill
.3mm layer height
1 shell
60 mm/s feed rate
Raft/Support
no other support
120 degrees C for platform
225 degrees C for extruder
