edit: 11-27-2016 Added Template file for stickers.

edit 2-2-2017 Added revised center pieces. The original ones are now labled as "old" and are no longer needed. The new centers provide for more spring motion making the puzzle more stable.

This is a 57mm puzzle cylinder. You will need to provide your own core and screws/springs from another cube. I recommend using a YJ Guanlong core, as these can be found for $3-4 and this has been designed with that core.

Surfaces will need to be sanded smooth to allow best operation of the cube, and to allow the stickers to adhere properly to the sides. It is fun to solve even without stickers as well.

The number at the end of each piece is how many you will need of that piece.

Standard print settings




I printed mine at standard since I do extensive sanding to smooth everything anyways. The curved surfaces may benefit from a higher resolution though, and it may save some sanding work in the end.


I recommend sanding all pieces thoroughly for best performance. I use 180, 320,800,1000,1500 grit sandpaper for a smooth polished finish.

what scale should i print the sticker template on letter paper?

The files should be printed at 100% (no scaling)

Very nice idea. I am printing one tomorrow and will be sure the post pictures if I can get it to work. I am waiting of the Cubicle to ship me some uncut vinyl so that I can do the stickers.

looks post production! great design and craftsmanship!

Thanks! The sanding phase is a pain, but well worth it in the end.

Where do i get the stickers? I am planning on printing one.

I will add a sticker template for anyone that wishes to cut their own or have some cut.

I can also cut and sell stickers,... send me a PM and we can work something out.

Yes, can you make a template like you did for the Trapezoid Edge cube, I purchased uncut Rubik's cube sticker sheets so that I could cut stickers for this.

Sorry it took so long. Sticker template is posted now.

No problem. I don't have the file handy right now, so I will try to get it posted by this weekend. (send me a PM if I don't)

Not the same as the Trapezoid cube. This one is simply a fisher cube barrel, but the fisher is sideways or it would be the same as a regular barrel cube.

Now that you mention the trapezoid barrel, I need to get back to designing something new!

Nice! I've been following this on the TwistyPuzzles forum. Seeing the quality of sanded parts has inspired me to do the same on some puzzles I have printed. They look and turn very nicely!

Is this a barrel version of the Trapezoid Edge Cube?
