Lightly loaded dices on different sides (numbers)

How does it work? I loaded DiceLoadedOn6 into Cura and there is a cavity on the 6 side. That would mean that there is less weight on the 6 side. Right?

Yeah, for example in the DiceLoadedOn6:

The cavity is on the 6th side so the center of mass of the body is closer to the opposite side, the 1. The modified mass center carries more weight to the face we want to face downwards (the heavier side tends to end in The bottom). This slight weight difference can make the side of the cavity, the 6 exit more often.

I'm gonna make 5 six loaded dice then play yahtzee with my grandma. lol
