I made this out of PLA, enlarged 2x. It looks great! But how does it function as a Rubik's cube? Nothing is holding the parts together.

My bad; I didn't realize that. I don't have a printer (yet), so I can't test this
stuff. All I did was use the part from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3982http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

I looked closely at the two stl files, Vader and Stormtrooper. It looks like Stormtrooper is missing the center core piece. The cores has posts that all the center pieces attach to, and rotate around.

Do you think it would be possible to use the core parts from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:9917?http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

Rubik's cube (fully printable)

Or the inner.stl file from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:23732?http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

I'm going to go ahead and upload that....not sure if it will work though. What software did you use to figure out the problem?

Yet another Rubik's cube
by srepmub

Help! I got here, saw that you had replied, and then my computer glitched and ended up deleting the previous comment, which deleted your reply! Can you repost?

Sorry about the technical difficulties

I can still see my old post. But in case you can't, here it is:

The cube you started with is, I think, the best, because that's all you need. The textured cube for the blind requires gluing together. The regular cube requires screws and springs. This one, though, you just have to separate the parts. It seems like the three approaches are mostly incompatible with each other.

I did successfully print the Vader cube. It's close to the size of a regular Rubik's cube. Action is not as smooth but will probably improve with use.

I examined the stl files using Pleasant 3d(Mac only) in wire frame mode. If you don't have a Mac, I've heard that Repetier Host can also do this. I think both are free. Anyway, I could see that there was a center piece in the Vader cube that was missing in the Stormtrooper cube.

I don't actually know how the 3D modeling is done, but I will guess that the Vader cube has what you need. Maybe it has to do with accidentally subtracting out the center core piece? Or not adding it back in?

Where can I get the core piece to fix this?

It's done by subtracting out the rubiks_boolean_v5 file from the statue. What do you think is the best way to go about fixing it?

It's hard to see, but it does look like the rubies_boolean_v5.stl file does have a core piece in the center. I'm not familiar with boolean operations in solid modeling, so I'm not sure I know what I'm talking about there. My guess is that the boolean operation somehow didn't include that core piece.

I can try it again when I get a chance. That said, the way TinkerCAD does it (this is how Robo originally did it) was that it made the Rubiks Cube Part a "hole". which was then centered onto the stormtrooper head.
