Well, I don't suggest making this 3x3x3. It is extremely loose with all different sizes of M3 screws (even the recommended 17mm screws). I can't turn mine without it falling apart. Like I said below, even with the correct springs, nothing tightens this puzzle up. Try a different 3x3x3 design. I also can't use the printed core because one of the screw holes are larger than the rest and a screw that would fit that hole is too large to fit through the center piece. Again, not a suggested print. I paid $45 for this print and it was not worth it.

Hi Kuberken, I use this mechanism in my modded cubes, work perfectly it's not loose if would be like that my clients would complain about(i sell puzzles) , but no, no complaint at all, the problem can be the configuration or material used in the puzzle, if you look in YouTube pentaprint, you will see my puzzles with a calibrated printer, and WHYYYYYY would you buy a basic 3x3 printed puzzle at that price, the mass produced are a lot cheaper, you can see my puzzles fir sale here https://m.facebook.com/Pentaprint3D

I paid that much for it because that's how much it cost me. The guy who printed it only made like a $15 profit. I'm perfectly aware of the price of a normal mass produced 3x3; I am a collector of many puzzles. 3d printing isn't cheap. That's why most 3d printed puzzles are extremely expensive. In the end, I used all the right hardware and assembled it correctly. It's not a good puzzle. I have seen 3d printed 3x3's with this same plastic turn out much better than the one I have. As a puzzle solver and collector, it was a goal for me to own at least one 3d printed puzzle. Due to the numerous quality 3d printed puzzles out there in the same plastic as mine, I am still highly disappointed with this 3x3.

Man, it's the first time you have a 3d printed puzzle, so you don't know if the ploblem is my 3d model or the printed pieces, you can see my puzzles working with exactly the same mechanism here https://youtu.be/VAbHQ_oT9Ss , if you want send me a pm with the pics of the printed puzzle.

Yes, it is the first 3d printed puzzle that I have owned. But, it is not the first 3d printed 3x3x3 that I have actually held and solved. I'm not arguing anymore. I have a YouTube channel as well and have shown how crappy this puzzle is. If yours worked out so great, congratulations. But that doesn't mean others will have the same results.

Thank you so much for posting the .stp file! Now I can finally make a flat-faced mastermorphix.

I have used 16mm, 17mm, and 18mm long M3 screws and the cube is still SUPER loose. How am I supposed to tighten this to where it doesn't fall apart? I have it tightened all the way with 6 springs and nothing works.
