Man that looks great, you beat me to the punch.

Did you just love working with plastic sheet or what? Is that acrylic?

Hopefully I'll have one to post in the near future too, I hope it comes out as nice as yours.

did you remove the original rainbow stickers from the corners. Because it looks like i can almost see the stickers through the small gaps. Still a great build either way. :D

Ryan you are the first peoson to see that! i did in fact leave the stickers on the corners, it makes it harder to solve, or easier, depending on how you look at it.

no, the size is the size of the standar 3x3x3 cube. Well, I think that the dino of Adan Zamora is a little biger (because I think he has covered all the rainbow)

I took a picture of Adam's Dino cube made from a Rainbow cube and compared it to an original Dino cube. The original is much smaller.

What is the hight of the puzzles?

I have a rainbow at home, but I suppose the extentions on the remake are placed above the "square" side of the "cubie" of the rainbow rather than extentions of the triangular "cubie-side" and thereby leading to the total hight equal total hight of rainbow plus the thickness of plastic used for extention, that I don't know...

So, if you measure, please measure both, as comparison, since the picture isn't good enough for calculating one of the hights when knowing the other :twisted: :P :P

A dino from a rainbow is the exact size of a Rubik's 3x3. (57mm)

scott, it depends on what thickness of plastic that you use in order to make the assumption that it is the same size as a rubiks cube.

Dodd thanks for the picture by any chance can you take a picture of a real Dino compared to a regular rubiks cube. i always thought that a real Dino was much bigger then a regular cube.

Oh, didn't even think about that.
I make mine without sheet plastic, i just build up the corners with apoxie sculpt so it's a more solid puzzle. If you do it like i do, THEN it's 57mm.

ok. its neat to see different ways to build the same thing. i always assumed that plastic pieces would be the easiest way to do it. but i guess that building up works just as well

I think that build ups last feel better. They have a more "solid" feal to them, whenever i grip sheet plastic i feel like im playing with a prototype or something.
