Hi,

Here is the next cube from my series of cubes with magnets and based
on "metal" sphere - Dino Little Chop. This cube is unusual combination
of Dino cube and Little Chop. 3D model of the puzzle was created by Oskar.
The Dino Little Chop is stable and turns very smooth. Enjoy!

Nice puzzle Vladimir. Some questions:

1) Is this the same size as the Dino cube, so standard stickers can be used?
2) Where do you get your magnets from (type number please)?
3) What is the North / South pole pattern arrangement for placing them on each piece?

1) The size of the cube is 60 mm, therefore I hope standard stickers can be
used. I haven't tried the standard Dino stickers (I don't have them), I used
templates from the model.

2) I bought magnets in local shop in Saint-Petersburg and Moscow.
You need 624 magnets d6x1 mm and 48 magnets d4x1 mm.

3) There are two cylinders in the base of part (d6mm): put "+" to one
of the cylinder and "-" to another. On the same, symmetric way, put
magnets on the inner sides. Let me know if you need more details,
I will make picture with polarity schema.

624 magnets d6x1, see:

24 parts x 2 cylinders x depth 10 mm + 24 parts x 2 holes x depth 3 mm = 480 + 144 = 624.

You may use another variant: 240 magnets d6x2 mm + 48 magnets d6x3 mm.

P.S. One (two) magnet d6x1 is not strong enough for one part.

Wow, I did not realise that you would need so many magnets. What is the approximate cost of all these magnets? What is the final weight of the puzzle?

Weight is about 350-400 gr. (12-14 oz)
Magnet cost is about $60-80.
