Dino Cube

This is my Dino Cube mod from a Rainbow Cube:

The extensions were designed in SketchUp, printed by ShapeWays in WSF, dyed using RIT, stickered with hand cut cubesmith vinyl. If I can get the proper dino stickers from Olivér Nagy I might re-sticker it.

For the full story of my experiences with using, dying, painting etc. the WSF material see this.

I know that this is unbelievable, but grigr and myself have independently designed, made and announced the same two puzzles (this and a mental block) within days of each other. I hope that he enjoyed making them as much as I did. I have always wanted a Mental Block and it is a great addition to my collection.

Wow. Another awesome puzzle. And how funny! I would really like to buy these extentions from Shapeways; would you consider putting them up?

Very nice Dino Cube. :D As long as these aren't too expensive, I think they could do well on Shapeways.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I think that grigr has already put up his dino extensions on ShapeWays. His cost $46.70 and mine would be $51.25 (without any markup). I guess that the difference must be due to the wall thickness as I have used 1mm to make them more robust. I will put them up if you think they would be useful.

Gus, I was shocked! However, great job.
Good luck

I ordered new stickers from Oliver's shop:

I am now very happy with this. I also designed some new tetrahedral pieces to fill the gaps at the corners of the rainbow cube, but I have not had them printed yet. I'll print them when I finish my next project and need to prototype it :wink:

This sticker set looks much better on a black cube!
Nice puzzle!
