Print 20 of these triangular modules and snap them together to
get a nice smooth surface on every side of your d20!

Print without a raft or supports, assuming your printer can handle small overhangs.

Snapping them together one-by-one would be near impossible, as the final piece doesn't have enough clearance; I recommend constructing two 5-sided pyramids and snapping those on to either side of a ring of 10 (see photos).

Snap-together Icosahedron (d20)

This is awesome! Do you have any CAD files you'd be willing to upload for remixing purposes? And do you plan on making versions for other platonic solids?

I tried this and it didn't snap together well, I had to put it under a chair leg and sit on it. xD Even then it wouldn't align properly. Should I scale it up by 2%?

how well i goes together also depends on your print quality

Haha, sorry about that! Scaling it up should probably help - I've only printed the one so I havn't experimented much yet (except for a few test prints for different hinge designs).

I suppose it also depends on how much flex your filament has - I just printed mine in PLA and it snapped together fine. Let me know how your next attempt goes.

Okay, my printer just broke. -_-

I'll try it at 105% and try.
