Fat Dragon Games makes dungeon terrain, village terrain etc. that can be 3D printed. This handle tool, designed in Fusion 360, makes it easier to hold such a piece while painting it.

If you don't have a 3D printer or any pieces from FDG these instructions can show some basic functionality in Fusion 360 – no prior knowledge is needed.

Fusion 360 is free for students, educators, academic institutions and enthusiasts.



Step 1: Creating the Stand

This video will explain some of the basics of Fusion 360 and provide a step by step guide to designing the stand.

S = Toolbox

<p>Depending on the 3D printer used the bottom part of the handle that is inserted into the stand might be too tight even if it is an exact fit in Fusion 360. To remedy this, go into Fusion 360:</p><p>1. Measure it using the Inspect button (picture 1) &ndash; the diameter is 13.20 mm (optional step)<br>2. Right-click on the extruding part and select Press Pull (picture 2)<br>3. Set Distance to -0,2 mm og click OK<br>4. Measure it again (picture 4) &ndash; the diameter should now be 12.80 mm (optional step)</p><p>If it is still too tight repeat the steps, but to prevent it becoming wobbly when in the stand it is probably best to change it as little as possible.</p><div>At the time of posting the instructable it didn&rsquo;t occur to me include the Fusion 360 file. I will add it as well as .stf files with the 12.80 mm version when the Epilog Contest 8 is finished as I assume I cannot/should not add files to the instructable now as the entry is closed.</div>
<p>This is a good idea. I need to start making my own terrain pieces. This would look worlds better than my usual lego block setup.</p>
