Guy makes Custom 3D Catan Board with Resin Cast Pieces on Laser Cut Tiles

Imgur user ‘roryjacobevans’ has managed to design a custom 3D Catan board with resin cast pieces on laser cut tiles. For those who are unaware, Catan refers to the Settlers of Catan which is a classic multiplayer board game by Klaus Teuber.

Players take on the role of settlers as they strive to earn rewards for growing their settlements as they trade and acquire new resources. For a home-made Catan board to mimic the same quality as the original Catan board is quite appreciable. Here’s a look at what one person was able to achieve on his own.
