Summary

This is a unique hybrid twisty puzzle designed with 2 layers and a single rotating corner.

NOW WITH AUTODESK INVENTOR FILES

I designed this in November 2014 and printed in March 2015. The cube was printed on my Makerbot Replicator 2 at 128% of its original size (supports and resolution in instructions)

I am currently prototyping a similar puzzle with a deeper cut to create more pieces and additional difficulty.

Notes:

Instructions

I suggest printing everything at 128% normal size because the clearance for the sliding parts were designed for that size

For scaling up all of the parts:
Recommended:
-124% for 62mm cube
-size of 4×4 Rubik’s Cube
-#5 1/2″ bolts

Save Plastic:
-114% for 57mm cube
-size of 3×3 Rubik’s Cube
-#4 3/8″ bolts

Not Suggested:
-100% for 50mm cube
-may not turn well

Pieces:
4-bolts
1-Core (no supports)
1-Dinosaur Corner (no supports)
3-Centers (no supports)
7-Corners
9-Edges
21-Dedge Pieces

My Printer Settings for every part:
-Scaled up to 128%
-200 micron
-10% infill
-No rafts

A sticker template is included in the files that could be printed as a stencil for cutting stickers.

Normal core and centers will fit 1/8″ screws and is a 50mm cube but I suggest scaling

Object orientation seems intuitive but ask if you need help
