About this project

€205

The goal of this 1 week campaign is to offer a print & cut papercraft version of my latest dice project as my contribution to the March '17 Kickstarter initiative "1s and 0s" for digital rewards.

Constellation Dice - Voyager Edition were successfully funded in December 2016 and are currently under production, but can still be pre-ordered: please click here if you are interested.
Please note that if you pre-order the dice you will also get the PDF for free, if funded.

Only 100 sets per color are left, as well as 30 glow-in-the-dark and black+silver sets per color.

Since it will take a lot of work to do nine print & cut templates, I would like to see if there is enough interest first, then I will be happy to proceed. This is why the funding goal is just €100.

All polyhedrals will be scaled up to a size of about two inches (5cm) for enhanced effect and easier assembling. Each template will be delivered separately on a standard A4 PDF sheet.

A version with light background will be included, to save you some ink!

Some background and examples

When I read about the "All in 1" Kickstarter initiative for March 2017, promoting the creation of simple campaigns with digital rewards, it came to my mind that a papercraft version of my 1st edition Constellation Dice has been used as a learning tool for kids, and my other papercrafts for Halloween and World Dice Day have been also well received.

It's up to you to decide if a papercraft Constellation Dice set will be made!

Stretch Goals

  • €200 - antique parchment style for all 9 templates
  • €350 - one additional papercraft: Uranometria d12

Risks and challenges

The designs are ready and I will have time to prepare the PDF templates while the 'real' dice set is being manufactured. Since this is a digital reward only I can't foresee any immediate risk to the successful delivery of this reward.
