The 20-sided die — or “d20” as it’s known to tabletop gamers — is an icon of geek culture. In this project we’ll 3D-print a jumbo d20 and outfit it with electronics…because that’s how we roll at Adafruit.

The talking d20 is fun and good for a laugh…though with electronics inside it won’t be 100% perfectly random or balanced…so it’s not suitable for all gaming situations and doesn’t replace your trusty dice bag. Think of it as a geek version of those “executive decision maker” toys.

The code and sounds are completely customizable. For example, you could load each of the 20 faces with the names of local lunch spots and use it to pick the day’s destination.

How is the balance? Does it have a bias toward any numbers?

Hello, have you guys had this issue with the ooze shield generated by Simplify3D. It always looks like this when printed on my Flashforge. It splits up and falls apart making a mess. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/81851980/IMG_20160717_031012.jpg

Here is what it does to my print. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/81851980/IMG_20160717_032614.jpg Do you have any recommendations on how I could clean this up a bit?

This project is a prime example of why I purchased a Printrbot Metal from Adafruit. I loved every minute of the build and the write up. A sincere thank you to everyone who designed and programmed this project. Maybe a bigger rolling magic eight ball is next?

This is very nice! :)

Just a quick question, how do I change the numbers into something else? Sorry I'm a 3D printing noob. Any help would be appreciated!

It looks like you'll need a program that can read .SAT files. Looks like AutoCAD will do it, but I'm not sure of any others. Might be a challenge depending on how he has it setup

Sono davvero dei bellissimi dadi xD
Bravo Quattrini che li hai sceli Xddddd

Great job! I love adafruit and your mission. I think I'll put this next on my list.

Thank you! Much appreciated. Please post up a photo when you make it, we'll share it! =D
