Die-in-a-Die Box by blincoln Feb 5, 2013

Featured Thing!

Description

My first design, a small die in a larger die box with a working snap-fit hinge. Both dice are usable - even with one inside the other - but no guarantees about randomness.

Made to print with PLA in high resolution on e.g. a Replicator 2.

Created in Autodesks interesting (and free for now) Inventor Fusion.

Games Workshop uses "dice" as both singular and plural in their "Warhammer" manuals. That also adds to the confusion.
haha gr8 i learned something today..... :D im not a native english speaker aswell but was always in the impression that 1 was a dice and 2 dices .... seems to be the other way around. thanks for clearing it up !
Dice is really plural of die, but I guess in practice it is often used for singular as well. I am not a native english speaker so I had to look it up :-)

Instructions

This is a pretty small thing considering the working hinge - it probably has to be printed at 0.1 mm resolution (this is what I did) - or be scaled up a bit.

Update: Uploaded a slightly smaller inner die to make the die box close completely.

isnt it a dice in a dice box instead of a die in a die box?
