Hi, just wanted to drop a note and say that this has just jumped to the top of my "must build" list. Looks really fantastic, and I would love to have it ready for my next D&D session, even if it's not painted yet. Thanks for your efforts and for sharing!

having issues with the feature wall anyone else?

Hi, I want to print it using Simplify3d but have a question abou about suports. Shoul I use automatic supports setting? (how much mm for the supports)
Thank´s for help.

Hope you are still planning on the X-Wing theme. I'm new to printing but I would definitely try that.
Wish I understood the creating process enough to try myself.
Kudos to those that create this stuff, it just aggravates me when I try.

Anyone have problems with the feature wall, when i load it up in S3d it looks like some of the faces are missing, seems fine in the print preview but can't generate supports for it.

What is the standard height on this model?

I designed the model to be exactly 16 cm or 6.29 inch.

Crzazy large file, needs some decent decimation applied. The dragon head is over 2 million verts and takes forever to slice.

I pulled the dragon head into MeshLab, removed duplicate faces and vertices, and then ran Quadric Edge Collapse Decimation. Took it from 2.29 million vertices and 765K faces to 191K vertices and 382K faces.

That sounds amazing. Could you share the fruits of your labor?

Agreed. I have very primitive tools at my disposal. Blender and ReplicatorG. ReplicatorG took about 15 minutes to slice the dragon head on my laptop.

If you can fix and test it for us, maybe you can share it back to the fine folk on thingiverse?

Has anyone printed this on the M3D printer?

Hi there,

I'm pretty new in this, so this might be anoob question, but the feature wall seems a bit different than the others (wall seems to be not solid) and Simplify3D can't put supports on it. Anyone know what that is?

Thanks in advance,
Aeren

I must honestly say that I'm not sure what is going on. I'm stuck with ReplicatorG, which seems perfectly happy with the meshes. Sorry but I can't test it.

Found the solution, it was a flipped triangles error. My slicer has repaired it.

Very cool dice tower - just what I was looking for! It would be cool to have some type of pirate themed faceplate or something sci-fi themed (might be a stretch with the castle but who cares...) Thank you for a great design!!!

The Sci-fi theme is not really such a stretch. I was thinking of creating a tower with turrets for a X-wing type theme. If there is a need, I'll produce more content. It hardly seems worth it if no one is making anything.

I am currently printing it, but it takes a long time! So far, I have managed to print the Zombie, Dragon (both are amazing btw) and the feature wall. When I have printed everything I will put it on here in the 'I made one' category. The X-wing turrets sound perfect - or maybe a Darth Vader mask???

Yeah, Darth Vader would be epic. I'm currently struggling to find filament in my country so I haven't been able to do much printing. I like to test the print before I publish it.

First off, this is amazing and I have already started printing one for a friend. Have you considered painting the cork sheets that you used? I am thinking of painting the cork black, or adding a layer of black felt.

Many paints and finishes, when it harden, may change the surface properties of the cork and it may no longer be able to absorb energy from the dice. I think adding felt is a great idea. Let me know how that goes because I may try it on my own tower.

I was toying with the idea of painting liquid latex onto the cork for some added sock absorption. Latex decompose and may become unsightly after a few plays. I haven't tried it yet but I't worth a try.
