My first D20. Without compensating the weight the center of gravity would be a fair bit off. But like always I have weighted the die to make fair.

Piped D20

those are pretty cool looking dice. Like the D20. I can figure out how you would get the texture on the outside but how did you get it to be on the inside of the numbers also?

I'm experimenting with new stuff almost every day and really grow my 3d knowledge and tools.

Just now i uploaded 2 cool rings just by slicing a geometric shape from both sides and applying some re-meshing filters that took me some time to perfect.

Very cool stuff.

So in a nut shell it's all about experimenting and using the right tools such as meshlab's filters tab and others.

Someone must really not like my cross die. only one that someone has given a rating to and they gave a 1. Well any thing religious can be controversial.

Anyways some good news for everyone. All my fair dice are now priced at under $10 in WSF.

Sorry to the person that ordered my piped d20. turns out unprintable. working on fixing it. and only $8 in WSF and under $40 in silver though i don't know how much it would flex in that.

in the mean time here is a really flexible die.

Very nice! I wanted to try this kind of flexible structure, but with spheres at the vertices (not at the center) and in a bigger network.
I am curious to know how flexible it is...

Just wanted to let you know my build your own die has been tested and works(though shapeways broke off one tab before sending to me so I had to super glue one in)

Still waiting for the steel core piece. Think it will look pretty good with the red faces I have left over from the kit

A colege of mine came up with a cool coin based design that should be available as soon as his shop is open. In the mean time it got me thinking and I have designed this ring on the same principle.

Finally got the Build your own die body in steel check it out:

http://www.shapeways.com/modules/udesign/utils/openfile.php?id=170772&f=photos/photo26972.jpg



*Full disclosure the steel does need some post production work to make the faces fit. The holes in the center where not very smooth.

I already have plans for a ring with numbers on it in another field, but the idea of having a die at your finger is very inspiring... D6 Ring, Ring'n'Roll, rolling a die: all is mixing in my head... Razz

Mm, not sure about that pi-shaped die. It isn't just about center of gravity and area. Take a regular square-edged die and file down a few thousandths of an inch along the edges of one face. The areas of the faces and the center of gravity aren't really affected, but the odds sure will be. It's a matter of shape and energy: how much energy does it take to roll off one face and onto another.

Still, looks cool, and could be fair. Might be interesting to check its statistics.

2 more dice made today.

Binary D6

http://www.shapeways.com/modules/udesign/utils/openfile.php?id=184072&f=184072.v0.s13.blender.large.jpg


and

Easy Binary D6

http://www.shapeways.com/modules/udesign/utils/openfile.php?id=184073&f=184073.v0.s13.blender.large.jpg


Both have been weighted and outer frame is only surface sitting on table so should roll fair. The only difference is the easy D6 has markings to tell you which digit is the most significant. The other version requires you to use the fact that the faces will always be 1,2,3 going counter clockwise to figure out which is MSB

Remember, you can order the set in one material only.

If you want individual Parachute dice printed in different materials you can still order them separately at this Dice Collection link.

Looks cool but it looks like the odds of landing on a corner is as good as odds of landing on a face. Probably won't make a good die. Would love to know the results after you print.

Thanks

The corners have no "flat surface" to land on.. gravity will land it on a flat number.

Ah in effect, mctrivia is probably right.
You must consider the "convex hull" of the die, that should more or less look like this:
index.php?t=getfile&id=6241&private=0
In green are the faces where you want the die to land.
In red where you do not want it to stop, but unfortunately gravity has always the last word...

Each face has more printing material then the empty corners...
(i'm using a special hollowing method) so gravity will indeed do its job.

Sorry but the weighted ends will rougly cancel out putting the center of gravity in the middle ofthe die. Center of gravity determins where it will fall not positin of mass

you forget the inertia factor

No I haven't. Innertia will not make it more likely to fall on the flat. It will make it more likely to roll of the flat on to the convex.

You should know I got 100% on all my college physics classes.

Naaa... i still think it will land of a face.
The faces are heavier then the convex and will pull the dice to land on a face.

I got confirmation on that from a dice collector on some other of my dies with same probabilities. weight wins.

I work here
Idono, looking at Magics diagram, if the die were to land on that red square where 4 points from each face would contact the surface, the inertia and gravity and any other physical property shouldn't "force" it to go to a number.
