hi rmmarsh,

this question is actually not only about rendering the dice, the main-part seems to be the physics and the collision. do you have any physics-lib, something like bullet, ode or others, yet?

the rendering should be the easiest part then..

tell us where you need help..

>> which one do you recommend for beginners?

physics-libs are not excactly a beginner-task, however, if you need it:

bullet:
