I got this idea a while ago when I was messing around in Rhino making 3x3 shape mods.
when I realized that it could only be made from a floppy and not a regular 3x3 so did I without knowing what I did go to ebay and got myself 2 floppy cubes.
the moment I got them in the mail (tuesday) so did I take one of them to the workshop.
and this is what it ended up with. handcut stickers and all that as well

the reason why I call it Floppy Case cube 2/3 is because it is very similar to Apollo's Floppy Case cube, but it is only 2/3 of the original.
And because I hate when you imitate possible turns so did I fill the gaps on the extentions so that it looks like one pieces and not several pieces.

LOL the Floating Cube!
(I am sure it can be trimmed at the bottom and top too,
to make the floating look even better)
