Want to show me your new dice? Lets take it here...

Seems more like a general discussion thing....

Shapers, here is something to consider..

The more discussions in any given thread the more Google will rank it high on relevant searches - in this case, on searches made by Dice collectors from all over the world..

This high quality , TARGETED traffic is sent from Google to this thread then spread over to Shapeways.com which then generates new member sign ups, new fellow designers and yes also new orders.. for ALL our shops - that's growth.

So i see no reason why any member should feel annoyed perhaps if fellow designers shamelessly plug their Dice designs and showcase them to the opener of this thread... which in understatement didn't complain about this flood of new Dice designs, ready to be picked for his collection (and that's one picky Dice collector mind you Very Happy )


I personally had a great time in the past 2 weeks entering this new niche which i had no idea existed and amazed by how i could materialize multiple designs/ideas of different shapes and themes.

BTW, Next month it will be 1 year since i joined Shapeways Smile
I have to say i came along way from being a total 3D noob to making some of the nicest designs on Shapeways (including a shocking wining of SIGGRAPH 2010 contest).



So Shapers.. be creative, be productive , be competitive, be cool - it's all about fun ! (and some nice Franklins Wink )


My 2c.

Cheers,
Dizingof

Thanks Gumball, two of mine are in your order... what material did you order them in? Reason I ask is that I ordered the Extruded & Chained dice myself in stainless.

I'm still going to purchase your octahedral D6 at some point, but I needed a couple D8's more, so a D6 or two that was in the basket didn't make it to the final order.

Great.
I added a D8 early in the morning - check it out.

Today my in-box was cluttered by "Your model has been shipped" emails.
So Shapers who ordered - your dice (plural) is on its way to you! Smile

The prehistoric stuff looks great, but again I'm only doing steel and if it gets over the$18-$20 mark, I'm not likely to buy it unless it is something really über-cool, like your swirl die.

Glad to hear others are buying. Keep it up!

OK, I'll definitely take you up on these two,

Octahedral Dice
Twisted D6 Dice

I'd also like to get these three, but I'm going to have to "discuss" this with the little woman.

Chaos D6 Dice
Kepler-Poinsot polyhedron D12 Dice
Fractal Dice

If you discount these five, I promise to get the two, and hopefully some of the other three.

Hello,

I'm glad to report that both Gumball and Kevin took advantage of my offer for ZERO markup on my dice collection during last weekend.

Both ordered approx over $150 with no markup.




Here is a new cool Ancient Royal Dice

Unfortunately the 'Chained Die d6' didn't work out, my appologies to those who ordered it. I'll be re-working it and ensuring that it really is printable (i.e. order it myself) before publishing the model in my shop.

Hey ho.

Looks like my Extruded Pipe Die D6 isn't printable in stainless either... again, my apologies to those who ordered... I don't know if that will be possible for stainless without losing the style of the design (but I may try it again sometime)

Also, is there a protocol for the number ordering on a D12 other than opposite sides adding up to 13?

I ordered the extruded at the same time as the chained, both in stainless, the chained failed 2 days ago, but as yet I've not had my order for extruded fail.

Anything about D12s you can tell me Gumball... I've got a stepped version with numbers ready to plant onto faces.

Did you get the Swirl dice in metal?

I'm now told it cant be printed in metal... nor the Spherical Helix Dice Confused

How can 1.5mm thick pipes be to thin.. when for ex. the Octahedral Dice was already printed in metal and it is a 1.5 mm pipes.. and even less? Confused

The order has been accepted, but is not yet "in production". However that is the same order that had the chain die rejected, so the swirl and the pipe die may still be printed?

Depends on the size. Rule of thumb seems to be that 3mm is the minimum accepted wall thickness on any model over 5x5x5cm, but on smaller models they will accept down to 1mm.

I had a couple of my I Ching trigram pendants printed in steel. They have two 1.5mm diameter rods serving as the threading loop, and suspending the actual trigram, and they printed just fine.
