3D model description

I made this to go along with Settlers of Catan. You roll the dice by flipping it over like an hourglass. Since the game can sometimes take up most of the table, there's limited area to roll them. With this, there's no chance of someone being overzealous and bouncing dice all over the place. It also makes it easier to remember who's turn it is. In a game where there's an even number of people, you will always be flipping the tower with the end colors facing the same direction.

3D printing settings

Go slow so there's no bulges at the end of runs. You'll want to be using retraction and Z-hop. Make sure that the maximum Detour for travel movements is set high enough to not cross the small gap where the clear plastic slides in. If it leaves any strings, you'll have a much harder time getting that plastic to slide in like it should. Lastly, crank your parts cooling fan up. The bumpers in the middle are well past a 45° overhang. Otherwise, you'll get a bunch of droops. The windows require you find some clear plastic that comes on products such as Funko Pops. I've included stencils to help you cut out the correct size panels. If you've used the correct settings on the print, they should just slide right in. An Exacto knife might still be needed to clear up small areas that end up printed too narrow. After you've got them installed on one of the halves, make sure you clean them off on the inside before you glue on the end piece. Otherwise you'll never be able to get rid of those fingerprints you put on while putting them in. When you're ready to glue the two ends together, make sure that the internal bumpers are lined up 90° from each other. The point of them being there is for the dice to have to bounce off of something and cause them to spin.
