Summary

This is my first upload of a dice tower. It should work with most reasonably sized dice.

Next update will include the tray in the customizer.

v1.1: The output ramp angle is steeper.

6/11/13: Added tray half

Instructions

I printed this with a Replicator 2 at Makerware's medium setting. I had no issues with overhangs.

Print two of the tray half. The dovetails might need a little sanding or trimming. The tower should fit perfectly into the tray when assembled and the whole thing fits together for transport when apart.

The tray that goes with this tower is rather sensitive to dimensional variances. I'm reprinting the tower right now in hopes that using a higher-quality setting will increase dimensional accuracy enough so that it fits in the tray at all.

Hi,

Beautiful dice tower! I've created a website to gather all board game improvements to inspire and showcase. Would you be interested in adding them to the Board Game Level Up site? Or I could help you with it, but still giving you the credit. www.boardgamelevelup.com

Awesome dice tower! I've been printing these off for the teacher's at my wife's elementary school. The kids use dice in math and the dice tower is a HUGE hit! My one request would be to thicken up the top flange. It prints out a bit thin and it's been snapping off with frequent use. If you could submit an Industrial Elementary School version it would be MUCH appreciated! Thanks!

You should be able to use the customizer to make thicker walls. If that's not going to do the trick, let me know and I can do it at home.

Printed this out, came out great! Looks really cool, dice roll through smoothly without getting stuck. A suggestion, some dice catchers at the bottom would be awesome. I like a dice tower that keeps the dice from running off the table.

It took a while, but I finally added a tray component. Hope it works for you!

I'm working on a tray for the tower to fit in. It definitely does need something to keep the dice from flying everywhere!
