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.


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?

Tothe - in reply to Weedz

Games Workshop uses "dice" as both singular and plural in their "Warhammer" manuals. That also adds to the confusion.

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 :-)


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 !
