Thank you Slon!  A Beer Cup

From Shapeways:

Min unsupported wall thickness    
When longest dimension of the model is      Minimum Thickness
less than 76mm                                     1.0 mm thick
between 76mm and 152mm                         1.5 mm thick
between 152mm and 202mm                        2.0 mm thick
more than 202mm                                        3.0 mm thick

...so in this case minimum 1mm

so, what about laplacian properties for that dice ?! i supsect it is quite unbalanced when rolling it a few hundret times, i am asking because it would be an ideal present for a player friend of mine which is really into board games... but a biased dice is not an option...

No he does not, or maybe he does.. wink

Well I was thinking about doing a real balanced dice, but even if I try I could never say 100% that it is, so real players will not accept it anyways, this is more art & design than it is function... like most of my stuff  afro

in fact even "normal" dices cant be perfectly balanced, because even the color printed on one side, or small holes make a difference ... cheesy
