Final Prototype: Star Wars Armada ship tray

After a couple weeks of getting feedback and a couple prototype prints, the Star Wars Armada ship tray is finally complete.  

The Problem

Moving this between tables or even just to a different part of the table was annoying.

The Design

I wanted something that was easy to move around the table as well as between tables. Some of the design features include: 

  • a place for the card
  • a place for command and defense tokens
  • a place for ship ID
  • a place for the speed dial
  • a place for the command dial stack
Final beta, made tweaks in the realm of hundredths of an inch after printing this prototype

Final Version

The final design incorporates several features.  

Ship card

Fits into its spot in either portrait or landscape orientation. Fits and stays in its spot with or without a card sleeve.  

Tokens

Overlap the ship card without hiding vital information. Slight drop in order to give tokens a small angle to make it easier to flip or remove them.  

Dials

Spots for both speed and command dials that hold them in place. 

Set the upgrades to one side and the damage to the other

When the ship is destroyed, put it right on top of the tray. Useful for between game transport, too.
