Not happy with the accuracy of your weather reports? Predict the weather for yourself with Weather Dice!
Warning: Nonsense below.
Weather Dice! uses 3D printing technology to accurately predict the weather. Meteorologists would have you believe that it takes years of schooling and experience, but you know better than that. Just print a few dice, roll and predict. The more dice you roll the more accurate your prediction.
If you print in the right colors, you can even cause changes to the weather. Maybe.
Sun, Moon & Star, Cloudy, Storm Cloud, Rain, Snow
I printed three in blue, green, and black. I use the colors to determine the order the dice should be read.
E.g., if I roll blue as Cloudy, green as Rain, and black as Moon & Star, I predict cloudy weather with rain later in the day, clearing in the evening.
Designed in OpenScad, starting from Marius Kintel's LetterBlock.scad file.
You will need to scale the print down in your printing software, unless you want a giant die. 16mm is the most common size for game dice, and works well for this print.
I printed from Cura 15.04 with the following parameters:
Layer height 0.06mm,
Shell thickness: 1.2mm
Fill Bottom/Top thickness: 1.2mm
Fill Density: 100% (use 15% to test how it comes out first, but you want 100% for the weight)
