Dual Printing dice

So playing with the new MakerWare dual print option (for a project I'll update on when it's done) I learned a few things.
First of all, the sacrificial walls work great. I mean look at those. Catches tons of drool. Love 'em. However, if you position your objects so that the other nozzle spends a considerable time over part of the object there ain't nothing the drool catchers can do. See how the right dice are a black mess on top? Best to, whenever possible still remember the orientation of your nozzles and keep things away.

Next I learned that my nozzles are misaligned. Gonna have to fix that. The dots on the 4 and 3 side stick out, and the 5 and 2 sides dip in just a few mm. So actually these dice, oversized as they are, are great for testing the alignment of your nozzles.

I'm still in the running for the MyMiniFactory contest. Keep downloading those chess sets to help me run the most awesome contest ever.
