OpenSCAD code to create a six-sided die with arbitrary text on each side. (I was amazed such a thing did not already exist.)


Currently uses and requires more_fontz (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:13677).

Open the file in OpenSCAD and enter your text for each side in the side#text definition quotes. Do a test render and adjust the other parameters for the best look:
diesize = size of the die
rounding = radius of the edge curvature
textdepth = depth of the inset text; below 2 seems problematic
textheight = used to properly align the text on the sides

Since I could not find a way to change the size of the more_fontz output directly, I concentrate on proportions to get the die sized nicely around the text in OpenSCAD and then do the final adjust for size in RepG.

Any way to change the size of the font?

I couldn't figure out an easy was to directly control the size of the more_fontz, so I ignored it and fixed it in post. ;)

My workflow was to pick the text and then only worry about the overall proportions in OpenScad to get a good looking die. Then when I went to print the object I used the scale adjustment to get the die to the size I actually wanted. I haven't checked to see if there is a newer version of more_fontz or even an alternative font engine now...

Thanks, glad you like it.

this as a customizable design is the coolest thing I've ever seen.
