This is a haunted house themed dice tower. I designed it specifically to use with the board game "Betrayal at the House on the Hill". It has a sliding dice catch for easier storage and transportation, a balcony that will hold all eight dice, and a tea light holder insert to add ambiance.
It assembles with glue from 8 different files.
This is my first major design so I hope you enjoy it.
The light Holder is the only part that needs supports.
You will need 2 of the Slider Stops.
Optionally you may need to purchase a small LED tea light (no real candles for obvious reasons)
I have not tried scaling it, but I would not recommend making it any smaller or the dice may not pass through cleanly.
How to Assemble
Print all 8 parts and glue together only after checking that they fit well.You will need to do a little cleanup on all the connecting surfaces.
Recommended Order and Notes:
1st Floor - use a flush cutter to remove the small strips under the slots for the sliding dice catch.
Dice Catch - This should slide freely in the slots/guides on the 1st floor.
Slider Stops (2x) - Print two and glue them into the slots on either side of the dice catch. Make sure to insert the Dice Catch into the 1st floor before gluing in the stops.
Light Holder - This is the only part that will need supports. Most small LED Tea Lights should fit, but make sure to measure as I found some were too tall to fit. Do not glue in this part. it is designed to be removable to give access to the tea light.
Awning - no need to glue this part in the 2nd floor will hold it in place.
2nd Floor - Wait to glue this part until you have printed and fitted the balcony as well.
Balcony - Fit and glue the balcony and 2nd floor at the same time as they are a snug fit on top of the 1st floor. You will probably need to clean up the connector posts and holes a bit.
Attic - This one slides in from the side and has a bit of a loose fit. Make sure to line everything up just right and be careful with the glue.
I created this in Tinkercad. The overall design is based on a house I found on Tinkercad (https://www.tinkercad.com/things/aACc4359RK1-house#/). I reworked it completely from scratch to make it into a dice tower. I also added the sliding dice catch and tea light holder.
