D6 Tiles Cage
The faces have bars that divide them in a certain number of holes.
To get the result of this die, just count the number of holes between the bars on the upper face.
This die is quite big (3 x 3 x 3 cm) and the wire is 3 mm so that it should be printable in Metal.
Note that, due to its structure, this die is far from being fair (1 is more likely than 6).

CM: 3.3 w x 3.3 d x 3.3 h

OK, I understand better now. In this case I should be very careful with the flexibility of the bars. And currently, the "tile" version is not exactly the negative version of this one (the indentations have sections whose shape is half an ellipse not half a circle). It would be fun to be able to insert one into the other. Not sur they would keep together when you roll them though... To be studied... :)

Actually I was just thinking about being able to insert the solid version inside this version

You mean as a moving part with a clearance? Why not... Good idea. I will think about it.

Actually I thought it would be cool if the cage die could enclose the solid version :)

Thanks Kevin. I am wondering if 3x3x3cm is not too big. Pehaps 2x2x2 would be enough...
