My Truncated Sphere Dices arrived (and quite fast)!
For those who don't know what they are, you will find more informations in this post.

I ordered them in Dyed Strong and Flexible and exceptionnally did some post-production on them: I highlighted the numbers with some pencil I used for Christmas cards (white, silver and gold) and added some acrylic gloss varnish.
In my opinion, the results are quite good (well, perhaps I should have waited a little more for the different coats to dry, but I am a always in a hurry...), and this is something I will do again for sure on my next models.

So I am glad to introduce the D10 with 4-fold symmetry:

A video of the D10 with 4-fold symmetry is also available.
Note that this die is currently not available for sale because I want to rework the numbers.

Then we have the rounded D10 with 5-fold symmetry:

the pointed D10 with 5-fold symmetry:http://www.shapeways.com/modules/udesign/utils/openfile.php?id=192141&f=photos/photo31119.jpg
and the D12 that was used the created them:

A video showing these two D10s with 5-fold symmetry and the D12 is also available.

Next come the rounded D10 with a 3-fold symmetry:
http://www.shapeways.com/modules/udesign/utils/openfile.php?id=195905&f=photos/photo31116.jpg
and the pointed D10 with a 3-fold symmetry:
http://www.shapeways.com/modules/udesign/utils/openfile.php?id=195920&f=photos/photo31115.jpg
and of course the D14 from which they are derived:
http://www.shapeways.com/modules/udesign/utils/openfile.php?id=195901&f=photos/photo31117.jpg
I have a video showing these two D10s with a 3-fold symmetry and the D14.

And finally, here is the inflated cube:

and of course the video of the inflated cube.

I hope you appreciate them because more truncated dice are probably to come!
