Polydice You Can Print! (Well Sort of)

I've got an interest in 3d printing. I've done 3d modeling on occasion, e.g.,  my work on turbosquid Over at thingiverse they have these awesome polyhedrons you can print if you have one of those awesome 3d printers.  I have a Makerbot Replicator 2x! I think this will be the next project I try to print out!

While they are kind of wonky, it shouldn't be too long before we can print out our own dice at home and in various colors! (there are some better models on thingiverse, I might have to try and model my own)


I can see it now, that d20 not rolling for ya, send it into oblivion with a sledge hammer but be sure you do it in front of your other dice, you know to "Teach them a lesson") ;)  Then print out a brand new one, even possibly with the "bones" from the smashed one!  Make some "test luck rolls" and you're in business! Or you can attempt these steps from the guys in Knights of the Dinner Table to get the best luck EVER!:

There are even those who suggest that if you rub a die on adead game designer’s tombstone, the bad luck will immediate-ly be discharged only to be replaced by good luck. Such acharged-die is said to be the luckiest of all dice (other thanthose made from the bones of a hall of fame game designer).
According to Norman Bowzer, who has tried this approachon numerous occasions, it simply doesn’t work. He recom-mends leaving the die on the tombstone for two nights undera full moon in order to give the bad luck time to dissipate.Since this particular method is the subject of dispute we pres-ent it here with proper notice that it may or may not useful.
