Some time ago, I created an extruded pipe d6... it was a bit thin and floppy...

Now the die is reworked, the pipe/wire that makes up the die is 1.8mm diameter, and the die is much more stable, although still somewhat flexible.

Nice concept. A (3mm wire) metal version would be good too Smile

You been playing with my models before they left the office Ralph? (the top image is of the one I had at the Maker Faire) Wink

@Gijs - 3mm wire comes in at 42mm (die) faces... i'm not sure how that'd work out considering the 'green stage fragility'
