My daughter just learned about Farkle and we were missing one die. She's used to playing with 6 dice and we only had 5. She asked if I could print one, and as any DIY father would say, "Absolutely!" Well the problem was that I couldn't find any normal size die on Thingiverse so I decided to quickly design what I consider to be a "standard" size die.

I measured an existing die using my calipers and it was about 16mmx16mmx16mm. Those are the dimensions I used to design in Rhino 3D. I'm still learning 3D design and Rhino, but I did print this design and it worked quite nicely.

One of the best things I made, but is weighted.


This was one of the dice I included in my test of 3D printed dice and it came out middle to low for how balanced it was. Surprisingly it did better with a 20% infill.

Man I didn't even think about balancing of the die, but glad you called it to my attention. I may consider redesigning to provide better balancing. Thanks for the suggestion.

Read the article. It seems that balance doesn't matter that much. What matters more is infill, strangely enough.


You're welcome :) Thanks for the feedback.
