Replacement dice from shapeways.

Postby kamotzatthebeach » Monday March 23rd, 2015 12:05pm

Has anyone tried these replacement dice from shapeways? They look interesting, but hard to tell if the quality is there.

I plan on buying some eventually. They appear to be of quality and for the price they should be.

I was thinking about getting one of the extra fine detailed ones at around $10 a piece. Get one and see if I like it. The pictures of the regular detail look a little rough.

I would recommend the "Polished Plastic" material. The "White Strong and Flexible" is rather rough will feel weird for a die.
Also, the basic form of the die looks a bit "un-round". Seems to be a low-poly model.
I could probably make a better one (if the look of an original die is what you want).
Have a look ;)

having the faces carved in so deep will change the results of rolling. They won't be randumb anymore.

Oh man! I didn't even notice as I didn't have any interest in that topic!
I can't help but be amused that "science" of all things is a forbidden topic.

Okay, thanks. I've seen these "polite conversations" before, so probably will take a peek only if even that. Don't have much interest to be honest :p
