I saw that a couple days ago, and I thought of Pall_S.

could you really build a papercraft die that holds up to any sort of use???
Because I know if I was to build this, my friends would try to roll it.

That is awesome. As for papercraft dice, I would expect thicker paper to work better, with photopaper possibly being best.

It is beautiful. Do they make them in brass as well?

Brass would be an automatic purchase for me. I still might pick one up...

It's a 3D printer type thing he uses...But I think the company that does it offers a metallic plating of the finished resin/plastic print.
He does a complete "Thorns" dice set...but I think I would want ta complete set of the "Gearhead" ones :)

I would spend maximum ~$15-20 on a really cool d20 made out of metal...but $9-12 for plastic doesn't sit well. The metal versions are $40-100!

Yeah, I thought they were cool too, but the metal ones are just too expensive.

Sadly, that's single-unit production for ya. If the originator came up with the money for a 10,000 pc. run they'd be a lot cheaper.

I've been looking at this production method for a while, and it's great that it's available! Heck, previously one couldn't get this kind of thing at all. And if an item sells well, maybe someone will decide to invest in a longer run.

So yes, it's a limitation of the single-run model, but it's still one of the coolest things ever that we have any opportunity to get these.

Oh, absolutely. I get on the Shapeways site every couple weeks just to see what's new, and I always find something impressive. I can't afford it, but as you say, it's great that it's available.

Author:  Talae [ 07-01-2011, 12:29 PM ]
Post subject: 

I can't wait for this kind of thing to become even more readily available. Think of the at-home applications, especially if you could print in color! I am envisioning things like downloadable and printable minis/terrain/dice/storage/etc.

Now to get them to find out how to print players/DMs...

Lol.

As it happens, they've been working on this for a while: http://www.livescience.com/118-printabl ... issue.html
A recent talk/demo showing how far the these technologies have come in six years: http://www.ted.com/talks/anthony_atala_ ... idney.html

If you want to make your own CNC deposit printer, the instructions are here:

I thought there was someone who was offering a kit, but I don't see it handy/

The kit that's most popular is Makerbot: http://www.makerbot.com/

Once they have full color machines available for a reasonable price (they're currently more than $30,000 each) then, THEN, you'll see some interesting things coming to the hobby.

Cool. I thought I'd seen another, more packaged one. But couldn't find it at the moment. Thanks for the link!
