I made a dice tower a while back, and it works great. See thread about it here. My only complaint with it is that I now have something extra to bring with me whenever I go gaming. This lead me to trying to come up with a design for a combination dice box and dice tower.
After thinking about it for a few days, I went to SolidWorks and starting designing it. Making a living hinge in SolidWorks that actually moves was a pain, so I cheated and made strips to represent the hinge. I tried using the Flex function, but it did not want to work right.
Anyways, here is the design I came up with. Two additional walls connected on the top. The back of the box will be removable to use as part of the “Tower”, fitting into slots on the top walls. See the pictures below.
I’m planning on using a ribbon to hold box open at 90ish degrees, maybe more. Also, once I make it, I want to wrap it in leather, to give it more of a book feel. Now I just have to wait for the Glowforge, or bug my friend into letting me use the Epilog he has at work.
