Giant Crib Board

This crib board is about double the size of a conventional crib board and designed for ease of use having larger pegs and tapered peg holes. I thought it would be nice to have a bigger board with bigger pegs to play on when space permits.

I already have a lot of regular-sized boards so I really did not have too much interest in just making another board. But making a bigger board also meant I could print larger more durable pegs. But I should warn you, this was about 100 hours of printing.

The base of the crib board is designed in two parts that permanently snap together. They will fit onto a 300mm print surface. Then the tracks are inserted afterwards to create a very rigid final board. It is easier to understand when you see the images below that show the print arrangements.

Once printed, all the parts snap together and I did not intend for it to ever be disassmbled.

If you print any of my designs I would appreciate any feedback. I am especially interested in how different designs print with different printers and materials. And, it is always nice to hear back from people who use my designs.

I am working towards commercializing some of my products and experimenting with a few different avenues.

Use, Licensing, Comments and Feedback

My primary distribution site for my design files is Thangs.com. Thangs is leading the way in promoting designers and competition amongst designers which in turn fuels the growth of high-quality 3d printable designs for the benefit of our entire community. The competition on Thangs, unfortunately, necessitates designers limiting the availability of free designs for a limited time. As a result, some of my designs are only available for free for 1 week from when first posted, so please download them when you see a new file available that you are interested in.

I do not permit the use of my designs for commercial purposes (i.e. you can not sell my design(s) or products printed from my design(s)) without first acquiring a commercial license from me. On Thangs.com I offer membership accounts for access to all my design files as well as a second membership for commercial licensing which allows subscribers to sell my printed products using my designs commercially.

I am commercializing some of my designs and printed products through various avenues including an ETSY shop, my branded site Buku Design and also on Amazon (Canada and USA).

I welcome comments and feedback as we as requests for customization of designs. I will do my best to accommodate those requests.

    I believe the file is scaled wrong. both base plates are over 290mm.

      Sorry, my blog was written wrong. It requires a 300mm bed to print. The crib board is enormous. Each half is 290mm long. Sorry.

      I do have on my list of things to do, to make a new version of this that is folding and I can aim to make it smaller. But no idea when I can get to that.

      No worries. I might just try scaling every thing to 80% and see how that works.
