Summary

I redesigned my printable MakerBottable 3x2x1 Rubik's Cube v4 in OpenSCAD, using Tony Buser's pin connection system.

I just designed this, so I haven't tested it yet.

Update: I forgot to mention that I created two print plates - one designed for the Thing-O-Matic (marked ToM) and the other for the Replicator (marked Rep1). They are identical parts, but with the Rep1 they are placed farther apart.

Instructions

  1. Print
  2. Assemble

This will be fun to print!

How well did the print work?

Yes, it worked great and I suggest you print it too!

Just printed one on a Replicator 2 and it didn't work. Seems that the cube sizes didn't align, and one of the inner pieces was not hollowed on the corner, so I couldn't add the 6th block. I'm going to try v4 and see if I have better luck with that.

Also, not sure why two pins were printed, it seems that you would only need one.

is it hollow inside? because otherwise it cost to much material.

I did not design the parts with hollow spaces inside specifically because you can specify how much plastic you want inside when you print it. All of the parts print very quickly and I would estimate that it probably only uses about... $0.05-$0.10 in plastic.
