Hello all! I’ve been lurking on the forums for a while now and have used a few of the free files posted here and thought I should share something I’ve worked on.
Here’s a 7 Die Hex Carry Case. It’s designed to be cut on any 1/8” proof grade material. With each layer properly stacked and glued together, Product will store standard 20mm D20 dice and smaller snuggly
Circles in the design are made for 12mm diameter neodymium magnets (the only size I could find at the local hardware store) In the future I plan on ordering smaller square neodymium magnets with countersunk holes and doing it that way.
The two blank hexes on the far right are the top and bottom pieces and have been left blank for custom artwork.
A few things I wish I knew about when I put my first case together:
Put your 2 sets of magnets together and use a sharpie to mark the side that will be glued into the slot
pay attention to the pull strength of whatever neodymium magnets you use and keep in mind every magnet is cumulative. I used some 5-pound magnets. 4 x 5 = 20lbs of force you have to fight to get the case apart
Fun idea for scraps:
You could definitely use all of the leftover hex pieces to make physical “Coins” for your D&D nights!
I put them all in a stack and then peel off pairs, then sand the top and bottom of the double stacks. It theoretically gives the glue more to hang onto and also ensures that I can tell which side is which. Sharpie is a nice solution too.
