This design I made works as a calendar. The two dice and the three month bars give you the possibility to create every day of the year. Turn them every day to show the current date. Enjoy!

It turned out really great on my Ultimaker Original. Hope to see some pictures if you printed one! :)

Credits for the font go to http://www.fonts2u.com/display-free-tfb.font


  • Make sure the month bars read upwards from the printer bed. (The small left square on your printer bed.)
  • The month bars do not need infill.
  • The date cubes have to be printed with the 1 facing down on the printer bed
  • The date cubes do need infil 10% worked really nice for me.
  • You could use support for the 1, might look better, use low support percentage though. I did not use any support.

I added a triangle version as well, it wat requested by radus. Each bar is for one season. If you print this version, please make sure to print the triangle holder as well, otherwise the month will not be visible properly. Good luck!

I love this design! Would you be able to put up a block with the OKTOBER spelled like OCTOBER? That is how we spell it in the USA ... I'd really appreciate it! I really could use one of these on my desk! :-) Thank you!

Ow, I'll try to upload the correct version some time soon hopefully. Thanks for noticing!

I'm in the same boat as sharonkay. Would you be able to upload a version of both the square and triangle month blocks with it spelled October?

I created new blocks for my new design here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:572306 . The only thing is that I used a different font (but I have matching number blocks as well). Hope this helps!

nice!, maybe you can share the source file so we can do translations?, i want a spanish one!

I build them using SolidWorks. I had to transfer the letters (and numbers for that matter :p ) into lines first before I could use it in SolidWorks. You want the SolidWorks files?

great, no trouble using solidworks.


I've uploaded the SolidWorks files for the month bars. Good luck. Please let me know how it turned out!

Can you make version for different color ?

White box - Dec, Jan, Feb

Yellow box - Mar, Apr, May

Green box - Jun, Jul, Aug

Orange box - Sep, Oct, Nov.

I'm not sure if I fully understand you... You want different boxes for different seasons I guess. You can print the box (or holder as i called it :p) in different colours. Or I don't get your suggestion properly, if so, please elaborate so I can make it for you. :)

Yes, I want to print 4 boxes different colors for the seasons, but only in the source 3 boxes

Hi radus, I made your request and just uploaded it. I also designed a different holder which fits the triangle bars better. I'd like to see a picture when you printed it! :)
Good luck!

Very big thank's ! =) After i print this i'm upload a photo. =)

haha :D very nice! I like how you got ten digits on to two dice with 6 faces! Very nice idea and design.
