Roll For Accessibility: Make Your Own Braille d20

Description: A blue 20 sided die resting atop a gray and white grid background.
The numbers 2, 12, 15, and 10 are on the visible facets of the the 20 in Braille.
Thingaverse user idellwig has a visually impaired friend who had been searching for a decent Braille 20-sided die for ages with no success. She designed a Braille d20 and now thanks to Thingaverse, anyone with access to a 3D printer can download and make their own accessible d20!

Actress and geek taste-maker Felcia Day featured a version of this die on her facebook page last year, and aside from the obvious uses for any tabletop game involving a 20-sided die, others mentioned it could be a good tool for teaching kids about everything from geometry, shapes and numeric Braille.
