We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This is an aid for rolling dice, in place of throwing or tossing them. When playing a game with young children it may be easier than finding the dice after erratic rolls. At least the dice will be confined to a smaller area.
For people with manipulation issues it may be easier and more consistent than the throw-release motion.
Print and clean up the exterior of the part.
Drop a pair of 16 mm dice into the top and note how they tumble to create random numbers.
This is for a pair of dice that are 16 mm cubes (roughly 5/8 inch). If you have smaller or larger dice and this does not tumble them or they wedge, simply scale it up or down appropriately.
There is the start of a hole in the bottom, which can be used to attach it to a lipped base for stability.
