Hi

There are 8 cubes, each of them with 3 faces and 3 numbers from 1,2,3,...,24.
The aim is to build the 2x2x2 cube, that each of the 6 faces will have the same magic sum (ms).

If you'll do that, than each of the 12 lines of 8 numbers (including 6 zig-zag lines) as you go around the cube, sums the same magic sum (2ms).
So, the magic sum appears 18-times.

Of course, the numbers can be also arranged around the twisty 2x2x2 cube.

Thanks&Enjoy

Mirko

The magic number can probably already be determined from the numbers shown.
But the last photo is at least not giving away the solution :scrambled: :lol:

Is this made via Shapeways (WSF)?

Yes.

A simple question: What is the magic sum(s) we are talking about??

Well.... it has to be > 24, because 24 is already present as a single number

I could cut out all your parts from paper to see if my solution fits, but my guess for the magic number is see below
