A 6-axis, corner turning octahedron. It is mechanically equivalent to a regular 3x3 Rubik's Cube without corners, so it solves nearly the same. Each corner can turn in increments of 90 degrees, and each trivial tip can also turn.
To make the puzzle, print each piece by the number indicated on the filename:
- 6 Cap
- 6 Tip
- 6 Center
- 12 Edge
- 8 Corner
Corners are not necessary for function, but they do increase stability and I would recommend printing them.
You need 6 M3 screws and optionally 6 springs. Standard 3x3 screws can be used, and they can be bought here:
Stickers can be cut from the attached template. In addition to the standard 3x3 color scheme, you also need purple and gray.
You should sand and spray paint the exposed faces, as it helps the stickers adhere.
You should print the following pieces with support (or split them):
