I’d like to represent the smallest Metal Rubik’s Cube 15mm. Alumide is Shapeways’ stuff, WSF analogue together with aluminium powder as dye. It cuts well, a sort of metal simulation. It looks rather attractive in one’s hands, whips up uncommon emotions. You need transparent stickers for the puzzle.
I’d like to notify you immediately the puzzle is just an experiment, a good specimen for your collection. But you can hardly twist it like a usual cube – I’m afraid it may break.
I took great pains to assemble the aluminium cube, the stuff is very fragile, and many details broke. Almost all spares were spent, luckily I had enough…
If you would like to explore it, buy it here: http://www.shapeways.com/shops/grigorusha
I’m going to make alterations in the design later. And if version2 twists better I’ll sell assembles puzzles.
