Loaded Dice by TakeItAndRun Sep 14, 2012

Description

Make your own dice. And load them towards the numbers that you want.

If you use them and get beat up, dont blame me.

Dont forget to cut me in on all your illeagal profits you`ll make.

I never printed them, so I cant tell you how well they will work.

Awesome! I was trying to think of other weighted stuff (after making my Bobble Shakers thing and having tons of BB's left over) and loaded dice was one of them, but I couldn't figure out how to do it without gluing the die together. Your 'load the BB mid-print' idea is great!

Instructions

Drop the weight into the dice when the hole has almost finished printing.

Use (e.g.) a ball bearing ball of 6mm diameter as weight.

Or set rl to the radius of the weight you want to use.

Set drl to zero if you just want a normal, heavier dice.

Set vrl to a different direction (+/- xaxis, +/- yaxis, +/- zaxis) to load the dice towards different numbers.

// load
rl=6/2;

drl=drl_max;// drl=0; // makes a simple weighted dice

// direction of the loading (zaxis->more 6´s,-zaxis-> more 1`s,etc)
vrl=-zaxis;
