A d20 I painted as a present. by NonCharon A d20 I painted as a present. by NonCharon
I had this 3D printed at Shapeways.com in stainless steel. I thought it was kind of bland so I painted it. It's multiple layers.

I started with a yellow wash on white primer. Then I did successively lighter layers of dry paint of orange, red, a scorched metal, and then a light layer of adamantium black, with a generous layer on the points.

All paints were Reaper paints.

Despite it being metal, it's pretty light because it's just a hollow woven shell. It looks more painful than it would be. :)

And 3D printed in steel? That must be quite the arrangement. How big is the die?

Maybe 20 millimeters. The average d20 is 16millimeters. I have another printed die that is not quite as nice to look at that size.

Cool. 3D printing being still a fairly rough art, it seems the detail would get lost if you tried to go much smaller.

Resolution is constantly improving. This is maybe 2 years old, and it did have some issues with supporting material getting caught some of the smallest voids, like inside the "8".

That being said, I've seen videos of stuff that takes a microscope to see. It's done in a resin that solidifies when hit by two lasers at once, so only where they cross is set by the beams, not where the single lasers pass through the medium.

Granted, I'm pretty the above is not financially viable for your average person. The future is coming at us fast. :)
