ok.. printed out 2 to start with to see how well it will go together. look forward to putting with my collection of Rubik type puzzles. I trying to piece them together I get a huge amount of resistance, not allowing me to combine. Is there some sanding that is required, or maybe I have my settings off a little?

The Model is built with a clearance of about 0.3mm between parts. On the Zortrax M200 this tolerance works just fine without sanding. Maybe you have to set a Wall Offset in your Slicer or help it with a bit of sanding if the fit is too tight.

I printed 8 and made the big box. Love it!!! Such a cool puzzle. Printed on a Prusa and Ender 3 both with .2 slices in PLA. And all the pieces work well. Leads me to believe that both printers a dialed in nicely.

Fantastic puzzle. Getting it together is the easy part. Getting them apart right after you printed it is the second. After print is really tight making you think it is never coming apart.
Finding that method to get them apart on your own is satisfying.

Print more copies for even more fun. With 8 copies, it's possible to make a cube.

Does that mean if I print 32 pieces that it would make a larger cube?

Yes, I think so. It would be challenging to put together, though! :)

To quote from Dumb and Dumber, "so you are saying there is a chance?"

b.r.b. printing 32 copies.

I printed 64 pieces. Made a huge cube. Now I can make a fun gave for a group. See who can put together a 4 or 8 piece cube first!!!

Don’t hate me, I think I counted wrong. Must print 64 pieces.

I'm thinking to print them out too. Only have to print 24. HAA HAA HAA

Looks like there is only 1 piece available for download?

Thats right, print this one piece 4 times to get the Puzzle complete.

i got it together but cant get it apart again

Taking it apart is the reverse of putting it together, but it may require quite a bit of force. I finally got mine apart successfully with a friend who pulled two pieces out and towards him, while I pulled the other two pieces out and towards me. Having worked them apart and together several more times, it has become easier to get the properly assembled part apart again -- in retrospect, it would be good to do this before the first assembly.
