Multi Gear Cube Kit
Above:One variant with the remaining parts
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
A generalized version of the Paso Doble. It allows all kinds of gearing ratios between opposite sides for all three axis.

After Oskar van Deventer presented the Paso Doble the idea came up to generalize this concept. The result is this Multi Gear Cube. It allows to assemble a 3x3x3 with all thinkable gearing ratios.

You can rebuilt the traditional 3x3x3 where no opposite sides are connected.
You can rebuilt the Gear Cube, where all pairs of sides move in a ration of 1:1
You can rebuilt the Paso Doble, where all pairs of sides move in a ration of 1:2
And you can freely decide which ratios out of 1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 1:4 and Free (no connection at all) the three axis of the 3x3x3 should have.

One result of this flexibility is that the complete kit comes with more pieces than one variant needs.

Edge length: 61.5 mm
Weight (one variant without remaining part): 88.1 grams
Weight (all parts): 150.9 grams
