Hextraction Secret Tiles - I didn't bother to print the inlay, the recess didn't really come out clean enough to bother. I also had to snip the legs down on the upper halves and then glue the tiles closed because the legs/pegs were too long. 

These are printed with two different versions of Amolen's dual color filament. The tops are blue/green and the bottoms are red/green. - 3d model
Hextraction Secret Tiles - These were kind of a pain to print.  Thankfully I read through the comments and makes first and learned that the I need to get corrected tile bodies - the X, DC and Flipper tiles all have holes that are too shallow for the cover so I used these corrected models:

DC, X - https://thangs.com/designer/johnlattanzio98/3d-model/FIXED%20Secret%20Hextraction%20Tiles-878686

Flipper - https://thangs.com/designer/timothyjackman/3d-model/Fixed%20Hextraction%20Secret%20Flipper%20Tile-884171

For the cover - I printed them with the "top" (the question mark) down, and used supports.  Then, I shrunk the inlay down to .4mm thick instead of .6mm, that way they fit in nicely when I glued them in.  Looking forward to getting my MMU3 unit so I can reprint these in multicolor without gluing the inlays in. - 3d model

Shroud your plays in mystery with these befuddlingly stealthy tiles for Hextraction, the hackable, 3D-printable board game.

With the lids off, these tiles look and act similarly to Basic and Flipper Tiles. But with the lids on, the inner workings are totally concealed, giving you a temporary informational edge while your opponents scratch their heads. Remember to pop the top off before you play it, to see what you've got!

These actually behave a bit differently than the standard versions; to make them totally identical, I put notches in all six positions. This means you can make "illegal" paths that connect top edge to top edge, and bottom to bottom. Balls need a significant amount of momentum to pass through these, so use with caution, and if balls get stuck, you'll have to mentally track when you can remove the tile.

The Secret Flipper is also unique in that it has entrances on all six sides. The upper-left and upper-right entrances are actually always usable, always lead to the corresponding bottom edge, and always tip the flipper in that direction, so the sneaky sidegrade enables more advanced plays. The Secret Flipper uses the same flipper as the regular version, and installs the same way, so visit that page to download the missing piece and get assembly instructions.

The lids should fit the tiles snugly; loose enough to pry off, but tight enough to stay put during a shuffle. You may need to adjust your slicer's hole/circle settings, or slightly scale the Lid up. If you have a multi-material printer, drag the Lid and the Inlay into the slicer together, so the Inlay is aligned with the slot and question mark. Otherwise, print them separately, no supports, and glue the Overlay in place.

All of my Hextraction tiles have a built-in sacrificial support under each notch - remember to snap it off after printing. Enable the brim if these detach from the bed.

Hextraction is a 3D-printable, modder-friendly board game designed by me, Zack Freedman of Voidstar Lab. In addition to tiles, you'll also need 10mm steel balls or 3/8" slingshot ammo and a game board. To learn the rules and how to get started, watch the Hextraction video!

Hextraction is absolutely free - it's free of charge - all of my models are here on Thangs, commercial use allowed. It's free-form - you can play with any number of opponents, even zero. It's free to modify - you can create your own tiles and configure your own board.
