OpenSCAD script to make variations of a tesseract (hypercube) out of connected cylinders.
Specify the lengths of the inner and outer cubes, the radius of the connecting cylinders, and the angles of rotation (if any) of the inner cube.
I sliced the distorted tesseract file with Slic3r and printed it on my MendelMax without support (although I had to monitor it and push down some of the very low angle parts that tried to curl). I also printed it with support but that required a lot of clean up. I think it might be possible to tilt it up on one corner and perhaps minimize the amount of support needed, but I haven't tried that. I've included STL files of a couple of flavors of the output, with and without a 0.3 mm extended bottom layer which serves to promote good adhesion to the platform.

So what's this mean?
We're sure ekpuz would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
