Picture shown above is of a print by chilnic.

For best results, scale the pieces up 27x. Print each piece the number of times the .stl file instructs. I used some Shengshou 7x7 stickers, and one 6-32 self-boring screw.

This is a 1x3x4 Rubik's Cube type twisty puzzle. It turns by increments of 180 degrees in all directions, and, like most 'floppy puzzles', is pretty easy to solve. Enjoy, and please post some pictures if you make one!


How I Designed This

As you can see, the mechanism is kind of unique. I discovered that by starting with a 1x2x3 as a base, nearly any floppy cuboid can be built off of it.

should i us support? ad should i print in the position it came?

I love the design! It's like a 1x2x3 with two extensions added on either side. You should pillow it! Or I could do that and spin off. Hmm...

Well I have all my parts. 15x scale worked decently, parts are a little fragile. It works, but I just cant get it to stay together. It just unscrews itself after a couple turns.

scale by 2540% for the intended size.

Printing at 15x scale instead of 27x. Parts are a little thin, and tend to break, but it's simply too big at 27x. Maybe ill try 20x if 15x does not end up working. So far, though, it works okay. Center3 is a very difficult print, spent a while trying to figure what orientation to print at

I'm printing this soon! but what screws should I use?
