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.
