Truncated Sphere D33 Frosted Edition

This is the Frosted Edition of the 33-sided die specially designed to be the 33333rd entry of Kevin Cook's dice collection.
This die has a diameter of 20 mm and a wall thickness of 1 mm only.
It should contain the white wax used as support material.

The numbering has been carefully studied.
All numbers are by groups of 3 that sum to 51:
 - the 3 numbers at the North and South pole
 - the 9 numbers at the equator and at the 2 tropic taken 3 by 3 (any 3 numbers at 120°)
All numbers sum to 34 by group of 2 (except obviously 17, since only 17 itself can sum to 17 to give 34):
 - all the numbers of the poles and of the tropics with their symmetric number relatively to the equator
 - all the numbers of the equator (except 17) with their symmetic number relatively at number 17


IN: 0.805 w x 0.805 d x 0.805 h
CM: 2.044 w x 2.06 d x 2.06 h


Hi apathyfanatic, I am very sorry. For the bubble into the shell, I cannot really comment: I order several of this kind of dice and this is the first time it happens. Concerning the double-19 instead, this is entirely my fault: I just fixed the model: the numbering is correct now. Please accept my apologize. Magic

Unfortunately, the version I ordered came with a 2nd "19" in place of its "23". Additionally, the support material does not entirely fill the shell. The bubble/hollow space resulted in a very imbalanced/weighted dice which never lands on the faces opposite the bubble. This may have been a random problem with my die only, but filling a die with support material may be generally risky. (This is a very major balance issue for my die, not just a minor precision issue.)
