Ball Bearing 6-Sided Die (small)

Ball Bearing 6-Sided Die (small) 3d printed Games Dice White strong and flexible print on a quarter.
White strong and flexible print on a quarter.
  • White

    White nylon plastic with a matte finish and slight grainy feel.


Six sided die with ball bearings (1-6) on each side. With a .25mm clearance around the balls they should all move freely. Slightly smaller version, by request, but I couldn't make it much smaller without getting a little too close to the minimum space needed for moving parts. They're wedged in there pretty tight so you'll need to take some time and break them loose.


IN: 0.665 w x 0.665 d x 0.665 h
CM: 1.69 w x 1.688 d x 1.69 h


Also, the new Frosted Detail and Frosted Ultra Detail allow a gap of .1 and .05 mm.

Already printed it out and it worked. I had to work at it a bit to get the bearings loose and even had to stick it in the freezer for a bit to get the 6 side to move, but it works just fine. I'd post a picture, but my camera doesn't work very well for something this small. It's . . . oddly satisfying to just sit around and roll the bearings around and around in their tracks.

Cool design but in my experience you need 0.6 to 0.7mm clearance for parts not to get fused(at least in wsf) Let me know if you get this printed and I am wrong as it is really cool.
