FEBRUARY 2010 HIGHLIGHTS



Here are the highlights of the dice added in FEBRUARY 2010

EVENTS OF PARTICULAR NOTE

The BIG event of note this month was the discovery of
SHAPEWAYS DICE

They use a radical new concept in product development ... 3D printers used for Rapid Prototyping have been around for years ... I have been watching the prices ... as I wanted to own one ... but that desire is now gone ... All due to Shapeways ...

An artist submits a 3D model to Shapeways ... they examine the viability of making the model / prototype ... if it passes ... then the item is offered up for sale ... with some sort of compensation / royalty going to the artist

There are several companies out there that do similar things ... but it seems Shapeways is offering several things the others dont ... 1) Extremely fast free shipping (from the Netherlands to Colorado in 2 days) 2) they can produce durable models / prototypes in METAL

I encourage anyone who wishes to test their modeling skills to submit to Shapeways ... feel free to use any of my designs  (not all on this page are mine) ... all I ask is that you credit me as the original designer ... and notify me so I can purchase your designs


Die #30000 is currently under production ... and 29 of the 30 sides are designed

USAOPOLY
Seems to be cranking out new Yahtzee games
on a monthy basis now

We (dice collectors) contacted them requesting
that we be notified when items such as these
Wrigley's Edition dice are released
but we were told it is against company policy
to notify consumers when a product is released

Odd ... that is the same story that
'Wizards of the Coast' gave
