Summary

GraySkull Dice Tower - (Inspired by He-Man)

From the edge of Eternia I present to you the Gray-Skull Dice Tower!

This dice tower is inspired by Castle Grayskull from the He-Man series. The design is to allow you to store your dice inside it when they are not in use. Also, you can use the tower by itself as a building in your RPG adventures.

Update: I've updated the core. It was missing the handle for rotation in the bottom. All good now!

Printing:
This was designed to be printed in 3 parts (The Tower/The Lid/The Dice Tower Core).
I would suggest printing the Tower upside down so you avoid a massive amount of overhang from the top of the tower. I believe you should use supports since this is a sculpt with a lot of right angles.

The Tower Core is designed so that those interested in printing PLA with no supports can do so.

The Lid and Core are designed in a way to turn the core of the dice tower within the outer tower allowing you to store your dice inside the Greyskull Tower. The Lid keeps it all safe inside.

Hi!

I made a "dice receiver" for this Amazing thing!!!! http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2279986

Dice receiver for GraySkull Dice Tower
by ExaZ

Ok first off this is a great piece. I was wondering why there isn't a door/draw bridge that comes down and would allow the dice to fall onto the mouth as the traditional castle toy? That is the only thing I can think of that would complete this masterpiece.

I actually have a design in mind to do this. I however wanted to keep it simple and not over burden the concept. One of the ideas was to alter the inner core so it would look like a door when you rotated it inside the cylinder. The other was to do exactly like you mentioned and have a hinged drawbridge jaw. A third idea was to have a base that it sat in as well that would have a rocky out cropping that included a drawbridge jaw role way for the dice. I make do an MKII someday with that in mind, but for now I'm actually planning some more He-Man inspired gaming things... ;)

Yeah i think even a base that the tower sits in works well fo the dice to stay contained to ine spot. I can't wait to see what you create next. Huge He-man fan.

Great piece, and very functional. I was wondering which program you used to sculpt the figure. Thanks!

Hi, I used 123D Design, Lightwave, and ZBrush all together.
