3D printing experiments

I've taken the plunge and invested in a 3D printer, so I've spent the last fortnight experimenting with it.
I didn't really have a reason for this - I was just trying to find out what the printer could do.
Since I had the file, I tried printing the papercraft experiment dragon head. After 3 or 4 failed attempts, I managed to get a successful print.

A friend at work asked if I could make him a tracker for his D&D game.  This was what I came up with after a couple of hours.

The upper surface is more-or-less fully panelled, so starting work on the underside.
