Can you add some alignment pegs for the separated sections in a future revision? I don't want to glue it together so it is easier to store and each time I add peg holes in Mesh Mixer the whole model deforms.

Lots of issues here. You can just increase the size uniformly. I made sure it was tall enough but it must be wider too. The dice holes are too small and need enlarging.
Also, unless your bed it completely jerk free, expect shifting. It got worse the taller it got. I suggest printing in parts.

Thanks for the print! I printed at 75% aka 750x and with a bit of sanding the top piece down, and cutting out one support bar, it fit a standard D20. To be safe with no alternations, I'd recommend at least 80% for future prints.

Impressive tower, but not enough space tableside! Will this still roll dice correctly at 50% print?

50% (after scaling up 1000% from cm to mm) leaves the top holes too small for a standard 16mm d20, you want minimum 60%, preferably 70%.

Just printed this and turned out great!!!

Would it be possible to get a version with a separate fence/wall at the bottom? the base is too big for me with it included even in the split version. Awesome model!

This is a separate setting from your units in Document Settings. Thanks for posting source files!

Can you export the full model as a .step file? My Inventor is an older version.
