Melting Rubik's Cube (multi material)

Uhm, a rubics cube has 6 different sides with different colors by itself, plus the black. So a 7 color version would actually make more sense.

Also, the center pieces of each side can't be moved at all. It seems like some of your parts have multiple center pieces (which is a given because of the missing two colors), but some others seem to have none. This just isn't possible. Yellow will always be opposite White. Red will always be opposite Orange. And Green will always be opposite blue. So there is always a center piece of a given color and never more than one.

I like the Idea, and I'm sure you've put a lot of work into it, but as of now it doesn't really give of the right feel, you know.

Wow now there's a response that could only come from the biggest rubics cube nerd or someone who is a total #*&!@#.

This model is working within the limitations of the best multi material printer on the market currently, and its an absolutely awesome contribution to the MMU model scene.

Thanks. I have MMU 1.0 but will start disassembling it to build my MMU 2.0 as soon as tonight (possibly if I'm not too tired).

Just got my MMU 2 kit the other day. Just in time for my end of year time off.

Thank you ChuckNorr15 for liking this model! Have fun building your MMU2 kit, but take your time - don't do it if you are too tired :)

I'm sure TimboJones is not a total "#*&!@#" but meant it in a nice way. If you are nerdy about something, you can easily get exaggerated; I think we all can agree :D

TimboJones, you are right :) I'm aware of those design flaws, but I was limeted by "only" 5 possible materials you can use with Prusa's MMU2. I designed this model to test the full capabilities of the MMU2 and since I think it looks cool, I shared my design with you guys. If you want, you can download the full file and paint it correctly, since I'm not aware of any 7 material printers.

Or think of it this way: It's a cheap Chinese imitation of an original Rubik's cube. That's why you decided to destroy and melt it in the first place! ;)

Well, clever response. I don't know of any 7 material printer either. heck I only have a single material printer myself so I'm not really concerned. I like the Chinese Imititation idea!

You made me think of something though. I believe I still have some replacement stickers lying around. I'm gonna print the full model and just put the real damn stickers on it instead of painting it!
