These are dice bins (Print three bottoms and one of each top) for the thirty-six 12mm die of each color provided in Steampunk Rally. Each lid has the icon for the corresponding dice type, and each bin has nifty holes allowing you to peek in and see which dice are inside. The bins are small enough to fit inside the retail box and add a nice bit of thematic organization to the game.
Parts have been scaled by fractions of a percentage until they were a good fit off the build plate of my Prusa with less than a minute or two of de-burring; your mileage my vary. Looks good at 0.1mm layer height.
The 'prison bars' on the the short side seem to print a bit stringy for me, but I'm still struggling to dial in my retraction settings, so I think that's just my issue.
Also, this is my first shared design, mostly I was just goofing around to test my design workflow using an old version of VectorWorks and grabbing CAD mechanical parts from the web to look at scaling, resolution, detailing, and the content workflow. But it was a ton of fun to design, lots of failures to learn from. Feedback is welcome, Hope you enjoy it!
I tried several iterations of this off of Cura, but I just couldn't get a good quality print with the fit, to save my life. So I stuck with Slic3r, which continually produced good quality print for me on my machine.
I used an exacto knife and 220 sandpaper to gently take the corners off the rim and soften the clip of the box bottom, where the lid slips over. Very gently. You want the lid snug so it doesn't pop off in the game box and spill your dice, but you don't want it so tight that you struggle to open it and spray dice all over the room when you are setting up for a game. Just attack it slowly, will also get a bit easier with repeated use as well, I expect.
A quick base coat of grey primer coat and a zenithal highlight with white (takes less than 5 minutes) on one of the rejected prints produced the toned version shown in the photo. I'll end up painting out all of these bins with the woodgrains & metallics eventually.
