About

 Why X-DICE?

I've always loved graphic design, and modelling, but the hours upon hours of work and practice was spent only for my own enjoyment. So I thought, why not use my skills for product design, to produce something that other people will get to enjoy as well as myself? I went through numerous objects deciding what to design, and eventually arrived at dice. They are relatively unchanged, with the only considerable changes being color, so I thought there was perfect room for design, which is where X-DICE began.

 The Project

As a tabletop gamer and dice collector myself, I know that you can never have too many dice, someone always loses or forgets their set on game night, so having spares is useful. Not only that but having a wide variety of styles and designs makes the game that much more enjoyable.
 

When I began working on the dice I wanted to create a sharp and futuristic design, while still holding true to the original form. Which spawned "X-DICE". The dice have the same impact corners as normal dice would, making sure that the dice are as mathematically accurate as possible. But also have interesting engravings and exciting color schemes to bring them to life. 

X-DICE will be available in pairs; from a single pair, to a large amount for retail.

Models

Have made 3D models for the dice that have been used for prototyping. Below you can view the model of the D6 yourself --> here <--

The dice went through multiple physics simulations, and when they passed they were made into 3D printed prototypes. Here you can see them being rolled to ensure that they are correctly proportioned and made even to be as accurate as possible.

Colors

X-DICE will be available in Green at launch, then more colors are to be made available when the stretch goals are met. These colors are; White, Red, Blue, as seen below

Stretch Goals

In order to make more colors available, we need more funding to pay for the extra cost of having these colors. And you can help reach these by sharing the campaign with your friends!

Black and Green (Launch): UNLOCKED

Black and White ($13,000): LOCKED

Black and Yellow ($16,000): LOCKED

Black and Blue ($19,000): LOCKED

Black and Red ($22,000): LOCKED

Backers Color Request ($25,000): LOCKED

ALUMINIUM: ($35,000): LOCKED

More Colors, Aluminium: ($50,000): LOCKED

Production

In order for the design to be produced effectively and efficiently, a two-color injection molding process will be used. This costs a fair amount more than the usual injection molding procedure, but is worth it to get the color scheme that is wanted; and is much cheaper than painting.

The Future

If X-DICE is successful, after the campaign is over, and the products are shipped, I will be starting work on a polyhedral 7-set of X-DICE. These will all follow the same aesthetic design, but in a traditional full set of RPG dice.

Shipping

Postage for the dice will be free in the USA, and +$2 for international.

Thank You!

Thank you for supporting the campaign for X-DICE! With more support more dice and other items will be designed and produced in the future! So keep an eye out! And share it around!

Risks and challenges

I have taken every step possible in order to ensure that the production stage goes as smoothly as possible, and have allocated more than the planned time to ensure that the dice will be shipped when said.

The manufactory process could cause complications with molds, but that is easily fixed with a prototype mould made to check, and then a manufactory mould made after it is proven to be correct.

And at any point there are events that do not go to plan, backers will be notified instantly, and reassured that everything is being done to get past the issue, and back on track.
