Purpose:

This project brings the vibrant colors of flame anodized titanium to the gaming industry. Titanium is a unique metal with high strength properties although they are almost as light as aluminum. Titanium is nonmagnetic, will not rust, and is tough enough to withstand millions of rolls. Who wouldn't want to have a unique set of game dice that will be sure to get some attention. 

How it's made:

These dice are precision machined on a CNC milling machine in my own shop. They are first cut from a piece of 3/4x3/4 square stock with a horizontal bandsaw.  After 6 different machining operations the dice are finally finished  and ready for flame anodizing. My dice undergo a heating process that allows a oxidation to form on the surface of the titanium. This oxidation is what causes the vibrant gold, blue, purple, cyan, and green colors to appear. I then remove that coloring from the flat faces of the die with a buffing wheel. This allows the dots to easily stand out against the dark metallic face. Since I use the flame anodizing method it allows the colors to vary from dot to dot which will make each dice unique.

Risks and challenges

This project should be fairly low risk. Since I am the designer and manufacturer it allows me to work on both sides and not rely on someone else to make Ti-Die. I have been developing this idea for months and am prepared to overcome any obstacle that arises.
