Backpack friendly folding dice tower

@arthsia as @eflyguy says you’d need to adjust all of the notches and tab slots to accommodate the thicker material. That said, 1/4 would be overkill for this project and may prevent larger dice from fitting down the chute.

If you measure what it is (x) and then measure what you are using (y) find y/x and scale the entire design by that much. Change what you want so it will fit on the Glowforge.

I did that with the Snap and Store Box and liked it better as bigger, YMMV

How do I get the SVG to my forge

I am aware. However, the designer CAN give permission or choose to sell the design for commercial use on the side. Which is why I asked.

I have made this for myself and I adore the hinge design. But I keep being asked by friends and other gamers if I can make them one. Just thought I would ask.

This is a great design. Nicely done!
I printed mine with PG draft board. And I works great.

so going from 3mm baltic birch to 5mm would be 166%? sorry - only on my third cup of coffee and i suck at math anyway. Son’s birthday coming up and I’ve got 5mm laying about…

I don’t think that would be very “backpack friendly” at that point.

A good example as you could make the interlocking parts in a box maker after sizing them on the GFUI.

Me too! Fortunately, computers are very good at it.

so my answer was right? wow.
Interesting site, but would not know where to start with that :slight_smile: :laughing:

His D&D kit really wouldn’t fit in a backpack either… :slight_smile: Maybe 2 or 3. He uses milk crates to tote it around.

Yes that was half a joke but I go there when my math is inadequate (It is designed to try and figure out what you are talking about)
This is better for box design,

When I need a simple box I go to the feisti/ site.
Tried to do a dice tower myself but getting the baffles, ugg. massive fail. If I chipped up the scrap from the tests I did I could mulch a bush. Not that I’d mulch a bush with plywood chips, but you get my drift…

I have a pile of such stuff, but now after a while I make a lot less of it. There are many nuances that become second nature after a while. Many folks use cardboard to make a model to check things. I use Revolution plywood mostly as it is the least cost per sq ft.

oops the page is gone :unamused:

How hard was it to put together? I don’t see directions. Were you just able to figure it out?

The only place I had to re do were the interior shelves that make the dice bounce around - but as long as you don’t hammer/glue as you go it’s easy to rearrange :slight_smile:

Thank - I was able to figure it out except for the circle parts - how do you make them not fall out are they glued with the little rectangle thing inside them?
