scaled down to fit my Ender-3.
Great Design -> 5 stars for this

And here I thought I had a big printer. But I literally need to scale it down to 60% to even fit the rocks on it! This model is massive, wow
Let's hope it works with 60% scale

Any one know how small this can be printed to still work? I only have a Sain Smart Ender 3 with a 220x220x250 build volume. I really want to make this.

No baffles in the tower to make the dice bounce?

Naaaah. It's already such a weird shape, and opaque, AND propped at an angle; nothing going in is going to land predictably. Adding to the interior might risk stuff getting stuck.

Is your friend Nick Lanis from Team Four Star? Because they use this in their D&D streams.


Umm nope, news to me, but that's supercool! Any idea who printed it for them?!

Yep.. I know they would love it. I hope you do more cool Models for D&D. Like we talked about ^_^.

The reference they gave was to a Grumpybear at https://facebook.com/animatethreedprints
It's been there since their fourth episode. Kinda glad I found this here, I always thought it was a cool model.

was looking at this for a friend but full scale is too big for my printer, how small can i scale it down and still fit dice easly, useing cura for printing and haveing a hard time telling how bit the openings are. (also only 3d printing for a month now and still learning)

What orientation do you print the ship? Seems like it could have overhang issues. Do you just solve this with supports?
I really like both the idea and the execution. Wonderful design!

Yeah I printed with a LOT of support (auto-generated by slic3r) that I later cut away; effective, but used tons of filament. Careful orientation combined with custom support would probably be way more efficient in the end.

Thanks for the kind words!

You did more then just play with the original, it's art and the fact that you used sketchup to build it. Nicely done. I use CAD to get some of the same level of detail, Sketchup; WOW. (Not that sketchup is bad, but it's not exactly a powerhouse tool. Thank you for building this.

Wow thanks, much appreciated!

Very nice! I know a few people who might be interested in this for handicapped gamers.
