Would you tell me the trick of how to attach the bottom part? I don't want to use too much force, the gate broke off already

Hello odoTV,
You need some force to push the part in. Make sure it's parallel to avoid the gate to break off. So far none of my gates broke, but on some I needed to trim some edges where the printer wasn't as accurate as the rest of the model. Print another gate and try again. While pushing it in, try to twist at a bit to give it some slip. I hope that helps. If not I'll rework the dimensions a bit for easy assembly.

Hey Würfel,
Thanks for the reply. I superglued the gate back on and tried again. This time it worked like a charm. Maybe I just was too impatient the first time around :D Anyway, I love this tower and will surely have to print more for my friends when they see it.

Glad to hear that. If you find any spots to improve, let me know, I'm still wiggeling around some ideas. One will be to change the side the gate opens, I want it to be on the slit side, so dice pushing from the top won't open the gate. This happend just one time, one of the d4s I put in peaked through the slit and against the gate. Also a little friction stopper to keep it secure will be a solution. So just make sure to throw in the d4s not at first.
