I’ve been working on an updated design for the Dice Spinner project in the MMC Library. Instead of using a spinning plate, this design features a cam that bumps against a plate to tumble the dice. The updated housing also allows for more variety in cup size. The new design uses the exact same electronic components as the original, with one additional switch for use without an adaptive switch.
I’m looking for some people to test print the parts for fit, and possibly build a device if interested. The main piece needing test printed is just the twist lock lid that holds the cup down.
Twist Lock STLs only:

STL Print Settings:
- Material: PLA
- Layer Height: 0.3 mm
- Infill: 20%
- Orientation: Each STL is already oriented in the correct position for printing.

Comments: The main purpose of this redesign was to improve the ease of sourcing cups, as well as more consistently roll the dice. This has been achieved, but just needs testing across varying printers to check tolerances before an official release. Any extra feedback on the design or functionality is more than welcome as well!
