This is based on chapulina's printable Rubik's cube. I recently saw this cube and it gave me an idea:

Why not cut a cube piece in half in print it in color? so this is the result. If you have 6 colors of filament, you can print one print plate in each color, or you can use the filament colorizer and 5 colors of sharpies.

This is a work in progress, i have yet to add a way to align the pieces (such as a pin connector).


First, if you do not have 6 colors of filament, print our cyclone's filament colorizer.

Then print 6 print plates, each in a different color. Print a Core Print Plate as well.

Now, glue each piece together, depending on your color choice/position.

Assemble according to chapulina's build instructions:

Wow, I hadn't seen this! Awesome idea :D Argh, I really need a new printer, my Cupcake can't go much further hehe...

That would be an interesting experiment, put it would be very difficult to code. Would love to see someone try. It it could work on something sort of simple like this, it might be able to be adapted for more complicated models. 

Another interesting idea is http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:23775http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... the output filament seems to have the side effect of still being one color on each side. The colorizer also had this artifact though my design only used two markers. I wonder if this non-mixing "problem" could be leveraged to print the full standing 3-color cube.
