Learning 3D Modeling

In order to make my own board game components and component organizers I spent yesterday learning to 3d model in Google's Sketch Up.

I spent hours creating the perfect Runebound 2nd Ed caddy, everything that I would want.

Then I uploaded it to a site that allows you to buy your model and it priced out at over $300 at the cheapest!

So I went back and tried to make smaller ones, more efficient ones, but I could never get it less than $50. Not a reasonable price for a player caddy that we would need to each player.

Now I'm rethinking again how to accomplish what I want. My newest plan is to use layers of cardboard and an exacto knife.
