Rounded Platonic Dice

Rounded Platonic Dice by pmoews Sep 14, 2012

Description

Here are a set of Platonic dice. Five stl files and the five openSCAD programs that created them are provided. Each openSCAD program contains a module that makes a rounded Platonic solid. Variables are an overall scale factor and a radius for rounding. One of polymakers fonts, thing:13677, ArchitectsDaughter, was used to label the surfaces.

Dice are a popular topic on Thingiverse. A search using "dice" yielded nearly a hundred hits. Most of the dice have sharp edges but thing:29055 by KillerGardevoir is a nicely rounded set which rolls well. As the rounding radius of the Platonic dice is increased a point is reached where they resemble KillerGardevoir's dice. Further increases turn the Platonic dice into near spheres.

The D20 does not slice properly for me at all. It ends up a bit mangled.

Instructions

I printed the dice directly on the build platform with a modest amount of infill. They are small objects which print quickly.

As far as I can tell, you need one of the latest development builds. I have tried the 2012.08.22 build, and gotten it to work, but it is very finicky and has also crashed a lot in the process.

Trying to run the dodecahedron scad running version 2011.12.30, I get "linear_extrude() is not defined for 3D child objects!". Any ideas?
