Awesome design. It looks really cool in the dark. It's on my list to make now.

Where did you get the blue film on the inside of the cube in the video?

Did you glue the parts together?

...Oh, now I am reading the summary... "It comes it 6 panels that can be glued together.¨ Thanks! I love it!!

Hello. Did you paint the parts? They are so shiny! :)

Yes I used a chrome spray paint because I liked how shiny it looked. It also looks good painted black.

Can you make a Version with 3-4 mm thickness pls?
If you send me the CAD file, i can do it by myself.

i think this one can be cool embedded inside: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:401376

LED Adapter

When opening these files in TinkerCAD, they are very distorted and broken up :(

Man, just upload the files in this web tool and repair them to print:


I'm not sure why, I saved it as a regular STL file. Maybe try a different 3D program. Good luck, I hope you get it to work.

Great Job, thats very impressive to use part of an old folder, a light, and a clever design to make something like this, I could easily see this in a movie or a game like capture the flag just instead of a flag you'd have an awesome artifact. If you wanted to do that just make one with a blue glow and one with a red or green glow. Anyway, good job.

Thank you! I like the capture the flag idea. I could also see this in laser tag somehow. It would be cool to make it have multicolored lights that change color.

Hey, very cool model - currently printing it - thank you.
I have an RGB LED ring laying around which will be housed together with an Arduino and battery pack inside the cube. I plan to switch it on with a reed switch and a magnet from the outside, maybe even multiple switches to enable different modes.

Wow I can't wait to see what you make! I like your ideas. Keep up the good work.
