PRINT WITH SUPPORTS! Please rotate the print assembly.stl as seen in the photo along with any other extra parts that you may need to be replaced.
A variation of the Dayan Guhong 3 by 3 speedcube. It may not be as smooth as the Dayan but with a little lube or after repeated use it should wear and turn smoothly. There is added tolerance. UNTESTED!! I will test as soon as I have access to a 3d printer (hopefully soon). Please read the instructions for assembly.
Around 8 hours of work. Inspired by my love of Rubik's cubes; I've been solving them since the 6th grade.
FOR ASSEMBLING THE CUBE:
Push the pieces with the round pegs on top into the holes in the sphere. They are similar to a snap fit and need to be popped in (may require excessive force).
The pieces with the poles shooting out of the corners are corner pieces and the others are edge pieces. Fit each piece into it's respective spot on the cube but remember that the last piece that should be pushed in to complete the cube is an edge piece otherwise the corner piece may break.
If you break a piece, don't worry about it; I've included .stl files for each individual piece that you can reprint.
Don't be afraid to comment suggestions, problems, or questions.
