I printed v2 of this tower (which seems to have been pulled from Thingiverse, and I can guess why). The core model printed great! I used a 1.5L SmartWater bottle, and it fit perfectly in the base. Cutting the height was much trickier... I wound up cutting the bottom of the bottle off straight, then assembling the model and sliding the bottle into the base. I rotated it around the spiral stairs, holding a sharpie level with the top of the stairs, so I had a cut line. A little bit of sanding afterwards to take out an unevenness with the cut, and it was good to go.

As for v2, the problem with it was obvious as soon as I tried it for the firs time V2 has a cobblestone circular tray to catch the dice. However, the groves between the stones are deep enough that it was causing the d20 to roll into the gaps, leaving the die sitting at an angle, where it was impossible to tell what number it was on. Fortunately, the fix was easy enough. I had a small bottle of XTC 3D resin. I just mixed up enough to cover the cobbles in the base, and let it dry. I was left with a rock hard, glass smooth base for my dice to land on. It works great! If you plan on releasing the v2 model again, I would change the catching tray to simply have a flat bottom, or instruct people to use resin to level it out. Either way would work fine. Thanks for the model, this is my new favorite dice tower!
