I never saw one so young before.
I always wanted to see a Lilliputian do a finger trick.

Cool. The number 8 is the best (because my Birthday is today (8/8)). This puzzle is truly epic. Well done. :)

What material did you use? It looks a lot like that frosty transparent ultra detail material from Shapeways. How sturdy is the cube; are the center caps snap on; do you need tweezers to rotate the faces? :scrambled: :shock:

Since this was released on 8/8/11 shouldn't this be a 3x3x4? ;)

Seriously... great puzzle. Just 3 years late of 8/8/8. How about a 11mmx11mmx11mm 4x4x4 this November 11th? It would be about the same size cubies as used here.

That is disturbingly tiny. Just don't inhale when it's on the counter in front of you :shock:

Excellent job, is it really cheap because it only uses about 4 grams (guess) of plastic?

Plastic has about the same density as water at 1g/ml (it just about floats or sinks, depending on the type of plastic), so this should weigh about 0.8^3 x 1g = 0.5g, assuming it's mostly solid plastic with no holes or metal fasteners.

Imagine trying to find all those tiny parts buried in a big box of 3D printing powder! :shock: I assume they were printed in one of those mesh cages TomZ talked about in his visit to Shapeways.

I want to remind you: 10*10* 10 was issued 10/10/10 and sold on ShapeWays for $10!

12mm 4 * 4 I already did - but it does not work ...
if I can improve my mechanism, then I'll try again.

I do not know how much it weighs :(

I just want to remind you of earlier attempts:
Pico Cube 9mm July 2010 from Jason Smith (but he did not give us the video. it may puzzle broken?)
viewtopic.php?f=15&t=10404&hilit=pico+cube

I have made a previous attempt in July 2010, but the quality of parts was very bad
He broke down once at the first turn...
