From game through design to beautiful tokens

I've been a gamer through all my life. Since childhood I spent hours playing anything I could. At some point this became video games only. Turning into my education and then a job as Games Programmer. I've been making video games for more than a decade before going back to board games a few years ago.
And it was such a shock! There is so many of them and they are soo good and so much fun!
The second thing that was passing through my life is crafting. I always did some DIY projects, a bathroom redecoration here, a little table there, some fixed furniture sometimes...
When I came to board games I started PnP-ing and making giant versions of games for friends. And then I saw all the possibilities of a 3D printer.
3D printing brings fantastic possibilities, but the quality of things printed was not acceptable to me. All the ugly lines and artifacts. This was true until resin printers came out. So I got one and BAM! All my hobbies came into one thing!
I can do things for games, beautiful things, and i am pretty much crafting them! wow!
But there's only so many designs out there freely available. So I had to get to another thing I always wanted to do: 3D design! I now have motivation to learn Blender.
I start simple, with an idea to make a sphere with attached spokes - that's how my first virus comes to life. A few days of testing, changing, updating and the Pandemic set is done.
Then I read a manual for a game and there's an idea to use statues, so I search for 3D scans (with free, open license), work for a few months on adding bases and the Cooper Island set is born.
And so it goes. I play a game, I get an idea, do some blender fun and print it. Then do some more blender fun, adjust the item to be playable until I'm satisfied and then I put it out there for sale.

On the first day my Pandemic set was available, I sold 10 sets. It was an incredible boost to creativity and morale. So satisfying!

Over a year later and I've had almost a thousand sales. Apart from 3D printing there's now natural stone, real tiny bricks, machined brass...
I'm expanding my workshop and my skillset and am exploring different technologies that I can use for accessory production.
