Nucleus D20
fpa76 @tylerjamesmoore96 Thanks to you! I usually use a small needle too, never tried other.
fpa76 @bhmperformance Just received your order, thanks!
fpa76 @bhmperformance Well said, I bet you'll be satisfied!
fpa76 @zmail137 Hi Mike, thanks for your appreciation. You can find the bigger version here: http://www.shapeways.com/product/88D4XEWJL/nucleus-d20-xl
fpa76 @toby_kintay No problem at all, actually you helped me making a better product!
fpa76 I updated the model, now the numbers are bigger and more readable.
fpa76 @toby_kintay Hi Toby, thanks for your comment. The dimension of the die is the standard for a D20, and I wouldn't like to change it. I could increase the dimension of the single numbers instead. I'll try it when I have a free moment.

fpa76 @jeweledsnail I'm happy you like them. If I may give you an advice is to not polish the horizontal lines on the backgruond of the numbers, so when you'll polish the numbers they'll make a stronger contrast with the background and they'll be even more readable.

fpa76 @boenschisaac Thanks to you, I'm happy you like them! I see in the picture there's still some dirt between the little rods, you can clean it with a pin.
fpa76 @boenschisaac Hi, about your first question I've never printed them in plastic, but I really think they are strong enough to be used without any problem. About the numbers they are well readable as they are, but obviously if you ink them they'll be even more. If you read the other comments down here you'll find someone that aleady explained how to ink them.
fpa76 @Scooty I'm sorry, I don't have this photo. I personally never printed the set in plastic frosted and high detail.
fpa76 @felixisdanger I'm happy you like them! For the d4 there's another way to read it, if you prefer: you can see wich one of the numbers stands upright, like number 4 in the picture, while all the others will be leaning on a side.
fpa76 @hans_goober Hi Hans, thanks for your appreciation. For the first question: absolutely yes, they are strong enough to be used without any problem. For the second question: things are more complex than it may seems (above all, for me, to explain it in english!). Every die of the set is composed by the intersection of a certain number of little spheres (the nodules) with a bigger one (the surface where the numbers go). All the spheres of a single die (the little ones and the bigger) are precisely proportionate with each other to be tangent and inscribed in the same solid (a tetrahedron for the D4, a cube for the D6 and so on). If you change this proportion you'll obtain a non functional die (not well inscribed in his solid, that means unable to lay stable on a plane surface when rolling ends), or, in alternative, you should change the surface where the numbers go in something different from a sphere. Both alternatives are not good, in my opinion, and I wouldn't like to change the D4 design. That said, the correct way to read it is to look wich one of the numbers stands upright when rolling ends (like number 4 in the first pic), while all the others will be leaning on a side.

fpa76 @vini_rockaut It's not me, It's Shapeways that 3dprints and sends all the objects on this site. I think they send all over the world.
fpa76 @marbles1211 Absolutely yes.
fpa76 @dereksena It was a geometric and aesthetic reason. In D12 there wasn't enough space to use the same 1 of D4 for numbers 10 and 12, so I had to choose a different font. I used the same for number 11.

Gears Delirium I - D6
fpa76 Hi @gdalya, It doesn't, in fact. This was necessary for having a balanced die with this particular design.
fpa76 Hi @ifreedman, thanks for your appreciation. I always draw curved corners d6s cause I like the way they roll. About the balance I assure you the die is well balanced: the distance between its center of mass and geometric center is irrilevant, very very small.
fpa76 @Merivo I'm happy you like them! ;)
fpa76 @Merivo Hi Merivo, I've done it. Now the center of mass is something like 0,1136 mm distant from the geometric center of the die, I think it can go! Before the distance was 5,2310 mm. I also changed the decoration of the outer round surface, this one makes the die look still more tech than before.
fpa76 @Merivo Good suggestions, you convinced me! I'll try to make it more balanced, but I can't promise you to do it tomorrow. Maybe nex week or next month, I don't know, unfortunately I'm really busy in this period.
fpa76 @Merivo Hi Merivo, thanks for your appreciation. Actually cogs and rods are all the same, and I fear that changing it would make the object look worse. More heavy, less slender, in a word: uglier! Anyway, maybe a day or another I'll try to change it and see what happens; in that case I'll let you know.

fpa76 @aesp51 Hi Abraham, it's done. I updated the model, now the die is balanced.
fpa76 @aesp51 Don't buy it just now, maybe in the next days I'll try to upload a new, more balanced, version of it. I'll let you know.
fpa76 @aesp51 I've just verified it, the center of mass is 0,46 mm away from the geometric center of the die.

fpa76 @felixisdanger It's not an ink, it's the model itself (the surface of the numbers is smooth, while the background is rough, so they make contrast), the lights when I took the picture and a little bit of photoshop. This said, nothing prohibits to use ink to make the contrast even stronger.
fpa76 @felixisdanger It is not oxidized or inked.

fpa76 @dereksena Hi Derek and Sena, finally I've done it! You can find the complete "Daedalus Dice Set" here: http://www.shapeways.com/product/AULTBVQ6Y/daedalus-dice-set
fpa76 @dereksena Hi Derek and Sena, you had a good idea, I may try it! Unfortunately in this period I'm really busy with my work, so I haven't a lot of time for drawing dice. Anyway, a day or another in the next months I'll try it; if I succeed I'll let you know. Thanks a lot for your suggestion for now.
