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.
