Designing a storytelling dice
4 May 2021
Some months ago while talking about 3D printing with a friend of mine (hi Agata!) she suggested me that I could design and print a storytelling dice as one of my first 3D projects because it's quite easy to do, and post pandemic it would be fun to play with friends.
So I looked at a CAD I could use, as someone who never used a CAD before, and discovered solvespace.
In a couple of hours I made the dice and the first face, but then I stopped working on it since I had to setup my new VPS. Last Friday I took some time to complete it:
I printed it using white PLA:
Unfortunately my printer made the house face (the one laid on the printer bed) a bit more sticking out, I will try to print using supports next time rotating the dice to make it lay on an edge.
The dice is released under CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 and you can find all the files (included the STL ready to be printed) in the repository of the project.
