With some time to spare in the local fablab and some left-over plywood from other projects I created these dice.
I didn't think much of it, but everyone reacted very enthusiastic when they had these dice in their hand.
Being curious, I handed them over to some children to play with. They saw every corner of the fablab and later living room. They survived a few hours of onslaught without any trouble.
The DICE can be used to play and is a fun as a gift.
They can be customized with a word of a miniature picture.
All is made with a laser cutter and assembled by hand.
One dice is about 6.5 cm tall.
Add 5 € to your reward per design, I will contact you after the campaign has ended to collect the information needed.
If the designs add to much extra time on machining (laser cutter) I will ask you for that extra 1 € I need to spend in the fablab.
Here are a few pictures:
Risks and challenges
These dice are now around for over a year and handed out to a whole range of people, most of the time as presents.
Everyone is happy with their DICE and not a single one broke down.
If this remains a small campaign, and if the local fablab does not have major problems with it's laser cutter, nothing much can go wrong.
If the number of backers would be too big, there could be delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
