Summary

Huge 30mm dice, poorly weighted, and not rounded. This is my first OpenSCAD project. I have no idea if it will print correctly. I followed the tutorial from MakerBlock http://blog.makerbot.com/2011/01/19/openscad-basics-the-setup/

The dice model has holes all the way through where possible (so 4 to 6, 2 to 5) which makes for interesting but ultimately rather worthless dice (as the title suggests). I found the design a good test of the translate, rotate, and difference skills I learned from the tutorial.

Did a chi squared analysis of several 3D printed dice and this one came out one of the most balanced. So not so worthless after all.

Ironically this may be one of the more useful dice because the more rounded ones exacerbate any imbalance. Your unforgivingly square dice may be one of the best on thingiverse. It's in the running for my testing.

Just a bit of wothless trivia to go with your worthless dice... :) your dots are wrong. Opposite sides always = 7. So you couldn't see 4 and 3 together like this.

I think that makes my dice extra worthless! I did not know opposite sides had to equal 7, that is cool.

Print two, tie together with a 9" length of string, hang from rearview mirror.
