Dominion Carousel

Posted by Darren Humphrey on Mon, Apr 10, 2023

If you play Dominion, you know it can be a challenge to lay out the cards in a convenient way so that everyone can reach them. This carousel design solves that problem by allowing you to rotate the cards around to each player.

The bottom section is about 21" in diameter and can hold 16 stacks of 1 inch high sleeved dominion cards. The top half holds 8 stacks and has 4 large wells and 8 smaller wells for tokens, chits or coins. It’s not food safe, so don’t fill them up with hummus.

I didn’t invent the idea, but I think I made it better. I designed this card carousel not only to be stylish with smooth edges and rounded corners, but to print faster and use less filament than other designs I’ve seen. Print with 10-15% infill and NO SUPPORTS required. This design uses about 1000g of filament. Heating the bed is recommended to help prevent warp as the pieces are rather large.

Print time will vary widely depending on your printer, nozzle size and filament choice. The whole thing (12 pieces for the segmented version) takes between 26 and 48 total printing hours. My advice is to print with a bigger nozzle than the stock 0.4mm nozzle. I went with this 20 pack of nozzles for my Prusa MK3S.

Filament Choices

I printed mine with PETG, which is more flexible than PLA and holds up better in the Florida heat. If you go the PETG route, I often print with Overture PETG filament. I usually buy a multi-pack to get a discount. If you’re not worried about your print melting in a hot car, PLA prints a bit faster and is often cheaper than PETG. I’ve had good luck with Creality Ender PLA.

If you don’t have a massive printer, download the segmented version, which is divided into 4 top pieces and 8 bottom pieces. Each individual piece can be printed on a Prusa Mk3S.


I glued up my PETG version with AKFIX 360FC marine-grade Polyurethane adhesive. It’s stronger than super-glue and it cures faster than Gorilla glue. Apply a heavy layer to both sides of the seam and clamp it for 45 minutes to an hour. After the glue cures, use a razor blade to scrape off any foamed up glue that comes out at the seams. The foamed glue comes off pretty easily. Let it sit overnight for full strength.

Painting and Finishing

For a nice finish as seen in the picture, Rustoleum Hammered Copper spray paint bonds well to the Overture PETG filament that I used. The high-build character of the paint hides the layer lines pretty well. Wait 48 hours after painting for the paint to completely dry. It might even have a slight tack to it for up to a week. For an even nicer finish, I recommend filling with Elmer’s ProBond Wood filler and then sanding before you paint.

Make it Rotate

Finally, to get it to rotate, you’ll need to place it on a rotary base. This Lazy Susan Base paired with round plywood disc from your home improvement store will do the trick.
