I wanted the to create a d20 that would fit a few basic criteria:
It had to have fancy text that was still easy to read,
It had to be able to print without supports
It had to be moderately fair.
The dice is beautiful, and prints well without supports, but I would recommend scaling it up for the numbers to come out nicely. Unless you have an expensive printer, I would reccomend printing this 2.5x scale or higher, the larger die will be fantastic for those critical saving throws!
The D20 1.1 has deeper etchings, which is much better for painting.
The font I selected is Microsoft's French Script, the the only thing I don't like about this font is that the 7 looks like an upside down 2.
The letters are intentionally shallow so there is minimum impact on weight distribution.
The numbering on the dice isn't standard, it's taken from The Dice Lab, who apparently found the mathematically perfect number scheme.
I don't currently have intentions to release any sets inspired by this. In my opinion, the only dice you need are a single quality d20 and a handful of the rest!
If the dice is popular, I'll be open to suggestions.
Hope you like it!
Higher is always better, but the wall thickness more important
Make sure to balance the wall and top/bottom thickness for maximum fairness
Sand the dice before painting it.
Sanding at 320 grit is great for a smooth finish, you can hardly tell it was 3d printed.
Be warned, however. Too much rough sanding could take a sliver out of the edge!
For a quick and easy paint job, rub paint into the numbers, then scrape/sand it off the face
