I had originally planned on doing a rubiks cube but its been done already so I thought I\'d try rubiks snake puzzle.

The 45 degree overhang makes it difficult to model in few parts so it\'s actually quite a lot of bit to assemble (on average 4 parts per link)

I don't know how well it will print or assemble, when I get my bot I intend to run a test (one of the many) and try some different sizes.

I've included an SKP file with the 4 basic parts in case anyone wants to suggest a better way of joining the prisms.


This design is untested.

3 STLs 1 for each build plate:
Plate 1 has 11 normal prisms and 1 end prism - Print twice for a total of 24 prisms.
Plate 2 has 46 prism locks (for attaching links to prisms)
Plate 3 has 23 links to join the prisms

The images show the link and prism locks are added to the prisms.
