Is that the lego logo printed on the studs as well?

Or I'm guessing those are real white legos glued to the cube?

YES! finally. since the first time I saw a cube with legos on I have been whishing the cube to be of this exact size. because now not only does it look awesome with legos and not only are legos awesome and not only can you put any different kind of bricks on the faces (i.e. for making a blind man's cube) but now you can do one additional thing: you can bandage the cube in every way you want to! (theoretically even opposite corners).
But I guess you know since you called it the All-In-One-Cube and it totally deserves that name.
so cool.
EDIT: I just looked closely on one of the pics again and see that you did bandage it already in a certain way. :roll: :lol: excellent.
could you solve it? :D

Cool concept!
<greedy comment>And now adapt this concept to a 4x4x4. There it is truly needed.</greedy comment>

Hello Clauswe and Incredible,

Great idea and nice execution. I particularly like the versatility.

Is this a follow-up on this discussion or an unrelated idea? It looks like you modified the Lego plates by sanding the corners. Did you make them a little smaller too? Also, did you modified the flat tiles and other bricks? How is the turning? Maybe a video would be nice. :D

One last thing, is there a particular reason to print this cube. There are already some 48mm 3x3x3 cubes out there.

In any case, kudos! This is really an all-in-one-cube!

Skarabajo.

Very nice. I've always wanted this sort of LEGO Cube to be made, and now it has! Well done. :)

Thanks a lot for your commands.

wwwmwww: I glued 2x2 white Legos to the cube

Andreas: I am working on a adaption for the 4x4x4

Skarabajo: You are right. I didn't know the exitence of a 48mm cube. If it exist it will work. Video will follow this weekend. I didn't sand the pieces. I only rounded the corners of the inner shell (white 2x2 plates) against the hooking.

The Mini QJ 3x3x3 is 48mm. So with one of those I could build my own version of this. :)

Hi Claus,

now I know what you have done with my children´s lego :lol:

Regarding your "math - cube": I found pi, the square root of 2 and one other interesting number (difficult to describe for me....)

...are you willing to tell all of it??? :?:

I also spotted e, log2, the only polydivisible zeroless pandigital number, and an interesting 9-digit prime number.

PS. Nice concept. :D
