I put this model on Thingiverse a couple of days ago but forgot to put it up on the blog. This is a hollow bloxen for Seej with an articulating door. Players place small wager items inside their own ransom bloxen. Winner takes all.
Some of the Ransom Bloxen’s design DNA comes from this dice plinth, in particular the flagstones on the base.
I’ve carved out geometry for an articulating door hinge, but the Replicator’s resolution is too low for it to print; we’re in the sub-millimeter range here. Note that the tiny (and skeuomorphic) rivets print just fine though.

The flashing bank of indicator lights on this blog’s control panel just started going crazy, which means that we’ve got another Seej tournament on our hands, somewhere in the world.
If you’re an engineering student and you’ve got a Seej-related assignment, welcome! I’ll be happy to help in any way I can. Ask questions in the comments below, or email me privately at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to keep your opponents from discovering your nefarious plans.

New Seej model coming soon. Couldn’t resist the pun.
