First, this is AWESOME!!! I have a question. Im trying to make a 24 sided die with the letters of the alphabet on it. how do i not have it display numbers but the letters instead?

Thank you for the word of appreciation!

If you are re-running the scad code, and are somewhat familiar with doing that, you should be able to do what you're looking for. The bits you'll want to change are on lines 80 and 83, the "str(1+e)" expression produces the label for the nth (or "e"th) side.

Just curious, what letters are you looking to leave out? My alphabet has 26 glyphs.

Sadly im totally new to scad, i have done some coding in the past but im definitely a beginner.

What im doing is loading in the font for Elder Furthak Runes into windows.
When I change the font it will replace the letters a-z with the runes letters.
When I try and add it to the 24 sided die im trying to make it only adds the number images to the die. Which in this fonts case is just replaced with ////// so i just have a bunch of / on the faces of the die. If i change the font back to Arial or anything else the faces have numbers on all the sides 1-24.
Basically I just need to learn scode a little more to be able to modify the code to just use A-Z and not 1-9
Ill look at lines 80-83 and see if i can do it right.
Thanks again, and your awesome for the super quick response!!

You may want to start with the file for https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3341336 since that is a newer version of the code. You'll be interested in the label_type variable and the label function on line 119. Good luck and please do link your creation if you have success!
