Mimic Dice Box
In the spring of last year, I had the opportunity to play in my first remote Tabletop RPG (Star Wars), and while it didn’t last long, I had a really good time! Next thing I know, I’m reading the D&D Player’s Handbook and designing a mimic dice box as a gift for the friend who introduced me to it all.
…I’ve gone down a path I can’t return from, haven’t I?
Designed in FreeCAD v0.19, and created to hold the usual seven dice.

1. Print out Parts
Direct download of files available at the bottom of the page.
Infill: 15 to 20%
Supports: No (if you wanted to use supports on MDB-ChestLid, go right ahead)
Fit MBD-Tongue inside of MDB-ChestBase. Make sure to visibly line up the holes.
Using needle nose pliers, press-fit MDB-TonguePin into the holes to secure the tongue in place (x2).
Carefully snap-fit the hinges of MDB-ChestLid and MDB-ChestBase together so that they can rotate.
Line up MDB-LeftTeeth and MDB-RightTeeth inside the lid as shown and snap-fit them in place.
Do the same with MDB-FrontTeeth.
5. Add Dice and Roll!
