Maybe that's what happened to the Stormtrooper too; those posts didn't render somehow. I am (finally) revisiting that project, and will try to make it work.
RepG version printed and looked fine, even better, from the outside. But the vertical center posts were very weak, or maybe they didn't even print properly. Horizontal posts function OK, but with PLA, I don't see a way to fix the vertical posts.
OK, I looked at the stl files, and Stormtrooper is missing the center core piece, the one that holds the face center parts. But now I'm having trouble slicing Vader. Skeinforge keeps erroring out. Will try Makerware next.

Instructions

Hi, I had this idea to build a Rubik's cube out of a statue. I chose Darth Vader for now.

It works now!

I have included:

  • My STL of Rubik's Vader.
  • Boolean Shape: The STL that can be used to make a Rubik's cube out of your own statue. (Cut it out of / Substract it from your model (boolean)).
  • The STL of the basic shape that makes up the Boolean shape, (Copied and rotated 6 times)
I was going to make one of these, but I made the Stormtrooper first. And while it prints fine, I don't see how it functions as a Rubik's cube. All the pieces just come apart. Does it need another part? Or some glue somewhere?
