Soma Cube - Chamfered
by AdanA, published
To add to the many existing Soma Cube models on Thingiverse. I actually first modeled this long before learning of Thingiverse or acquiring a 3D printer. I made some out of wood, which is great. But it's fun in plastic too.
The feature this has that others on Thingiverse (so far, I think?) don't is that each little cubelet is chamfered. This helps make it less obvious, at a glance, where one piece ends and the next begins.
One of the other models (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11644) linked to this Parker Brothers manual scan, which is awesome: http://www.fam-bundgaard.dk/SOMA/NPARKER/NPARKER.HTM
Print and puzzle.
Consider using one or more additional shells. I've experienced gaps where the chamfers meet, and I think extra shells helped eliminate those.
Printing with greater fill makes the pieces feel more... real.
I'd like to try filling some pieces with sand, using the Sailfish Pause at ZPos feature.
