Modular Dice Tower

by Jimmie on February 6, 2011

I totally failed to get a post up today by 7pm (that’s what I get for taking a “nap” at 5pm). I also failed to finish anything substantial, as I was hanging out with a good friend all day, and only spent about an hour in sketchup before taking my “nap”. I did come up with the idea of having a Makerbot printable modular dice tower design though. This is the base section of it. It’s three inches wide, with a wall width of 1.5mm.

Here you can see the slanted module. I only really completed the template piece and this one. I had started on the bottom one, but wasn’t even close when I decided to “nap”. The slope of it should print just fine without support, so I can print it hollow. I’m much better at judging printable designs as opposed to laser cut-able ones.

Most of my creative efforts were daydreaming today, but I’m honestly inspired to finish up some more of these and print them when I get home. I’ll post the full set to Thingiverse before that though. I enjoy traveling around to different hackerspaces, but I can’t wait till I get home and have access to my tools and parts. I prefer physically making things more than digitally designing. A mix of the two is nice, but at the moment all I have with me is my laptop and LoL Shields.
