Large Companion Cube in Paintable Pieces
by nonnef, published
Need a companion cube split up for easier painting or modding like I did? Here you go!
The pictures of the printed cube don't have the small edge sides attached. In fact, none of it's glued together in the pictures so it can still be painted. I'll add finished pictures of it painted at a later date.
Currently will make a four and half inch square cube. Just print the proper number of parts and assemble with your prefered method. (glue, acetone, ect.)
The 'edges' parts fit togeather on the corners via the pegs three at a time and then are capped with the 'corner' piece.
'small edge' parts join together the same way on the middle of the walls.
'heart' and 'heart circle' press fit into the walls.
The 'wall' parts themselves are on 45 degree slopes. You may want to add keys to those like the edge pieces for easier assembly.
I've uploaded a solidworks picture to help show how it goes together if you needed some referance.
FYI: I printed it at .4mm with a .5mm nozzle.
You need this many parts:
6x heart circle
24x small edge
