Farming Game 3D Pieces

Description

Summary One of my daughter's favorite games is the Farming Game, a game that teaches you what it is really like to run your own farm. It was created by a farmer from Eastern Washington who developed the idea while driving his tractor. The pieces for it are all little flat, vinyl cling stickers... that stop sticking after about one or two uses... That just isn't any fun... So, to make things more interesting for my daughter, and to give her a surprise for her birthday, I designed 3D pieces for all the pieces that came with the game. The Tractor, Harvester, Hay, Grain, and Fruit coins were all my own design, using 123D Design. The cow model came from here: http://us.gallery.xyzprinting.com/us_en/membergallery/model/201507159793842 and was resized for appropriate game board size. Tractors and Harvesters: These are to represent one tractor or harvester each. Hay and Grain coins: These are to represent 10 acres of each crop. On the BOTTOM of the coin is "x2" because there are places on the board that will double your harvest for a year, so the top coin on a stack can be flipped over to show that. Fruit coin:These represent 5 acres of fruit orchards and have an apple on both top and bottom. UPDATE: We have played with these now, at least once since I finished printing and finishing everything. The cows are perfectly sized to ride the tractor (so my 6-year old showed me), and yes, the cows tip forward and rest on their front legs and noses... Though, they are just the right height to rest their chins on the Hay, Grain, or Fruit tokens... Print Settings Printer: Monoprice Mini Select Rafts: No Supports: Yes Resolution: 0.4mm Infill: 70% Notes: I printed these all in ABS Plastic: Teal/Blue for Tractor and Harvester Green for Hay Yellow for Grain Red for Fruit White for Cows. Post-Printing ABS Acetone Vapor Bath For the Tractor, Harvester, Grain, Hay, and Fruit coins, I put them in a vapor bath for 30 minutes. For the cows, due to their small size, I put them in a vapor bath for about 20 minutes Cow Painting (Optional) I used Lure Dye (Worm Dye) in Black to add spots to the cows, including eyes and nose spots. This isn't necessary, but it does make the cows look a bit more like cows than sheep.
