Today we made a videogame die, with the number on each face represented by some classic game. In the picture you see six Minecraft creepers, two Space Invaders, and three Pac-Man dots; the other three number faces are one companion cube from Portal, four Super Mario Brothers mushrooms, and the five Tetris pieces.
This die was made in Minecraft with a little help from WorldEdit and then exported to .stl with Mineways. The raised designs were painted with nail polish after printing.
