would you be willing to upload the vector files you made in inkscape?

I tried to find it but no luck. I will connect old hard drive during the weekend and will let you know.

Thank you for sharing. Your final cube looks fantastic.

Also, here is a great video of Simon Sayce talking about how he made the original(s) and some really good shots of the designs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=150&v=OcX2sYlTq2U

For everyone with a .4 nozzle you wont be getting this kind of great detail on the prints, you really should make sure you have a .25 nozzle in order to capture the kind of detail that you would like. I wont be continuing beyond one panel due to the detail really not capturing the essence of the piece.

What kind of print surface did you print these on? When I try to print on glass with hairspray the details are so fine the first layer won't stick.

I printed it on the glass and I used paper glue stick to bind the PLA to the glass.

Hi,

Did you ever refine the files ?

Unfortunately I did not. I didn't even make another make as I wanted. However it is still my most prised decoration of my work desk.

Hello, what diammetter of nozzle are you using fot this?

I'm not sure. The printer is Be3D Green / YSoft eDee printer in its default settings.

Just curious: Is there any reason why you have made an additional 4th panel?

I'm not sure to which photo you are referring but I experimented with print quality and reprinted few panels.

The original Lament Configuration has only three different panels (x2) that are on opposite sides of the cube. So the panel in the middle in the upper row (of the 3rd picture) should be the same like the panel below.

I found these six different ones. There are no duplicates, each is unique. I'm not sure which film this one matches but I remember I put them on the cube according some screenshots. I will try to find it, it's possible I got it wrong.

It would be awesome if you could check this and - if you are right - post the screenshots somewhere. Your version made me a bit insecure, because i have produced quite a few cubes in the last 20 years and thought (!) i would know this damn thing inside out and by the heart.

It is possible that this one panel is shown somewhere in part 5-9 though. I skipped these... films. ;)

I was wondering what type of glue you used to attach the designs to the wooden cube? I was thinking super glue might do it, but this is my first multimedia 3d model of this type.

I applied the layer of lacquer and pressed printed sides into it. When the lacquer hardened I applied another layer. However in some places you can feel that it did not stick and there is a "bubble" behind. I would not recommend this and would use glue if I would create another one of these. Also less lacquer. The box is too shiny. Good luck with the build!

Can you let me know when you refine the print job for these pieces, i am desperate to make one

I do not plan to do another version for at least few months. Is there something I can help you with?

oh no, Was just wondering when you were planning on doing it. If you are able to refine the detail more i would want to give that a go also. But for now i am going to try with your current design. I have wanted to make this piece for some time now, and was considering the 3D printing option for the parts but was not sure if it was possible (detail wise). I think it's excellent work and looking forward to trying to refine it more :)
(Being new to the site i wasn't sure if there is an option to be informed automatically if a person posts a new design, so thought i would ask if you could let me know. I can keep checking back from time to time)

I planned to use better wooden cube with nicer finish as base and print the sides in slower speed and with higher printing settings (printer I have available can set printing speed and details such as normal, high, fine print, etc. - the sides on the photos are 100% speed and High settings if I remember correctly). Also I wanted to use spray color to have more consistent coloring of the sides and use less lacquering on finished box with less gloss.

However I did not planned to touch the 3D models itself. Just the box construction needs more work.

I hope yours will came out well. Share the photos when you are done. I'm really interested in the outcome :)

Will do. As i don't own a 3D printer i will need to find someone to print them for me. Will post pics of the finished item too :)

I've always loved that box from the movie! It would be so awesome to be able to print an actual working one that does all the crazy stuff!
Yours turned out great. Nice job!
