Ernou Rubik can answer a lot when it comes to the legacy of the cube of his namesake. It has both captured and distressed generations that allow some to stay on the playground, while others are forced to admit defeat in the face of seemingly unbreakable puzzle. It so happened that [Tom Parker] worked on Rubik's cube with a new magnetic design.
Yes, yes – [Tom] the cube escapes from the traditional rotating and sliding mechanism of the original cube, instead all with magnets. Each segment of the cube, along with the hidden central fragment, is printed 3D. Using a melted printer for deposition and pausing printing in certain layers, you can embed magnets inside the part during the printing process.
[Tom] provides several different versions of the parts that are suitable for printers of various capabilities. The final cube allows both movements of the Rubik's cube, but also allows the player to deceive and collect it without having to throw him heavily to the wall first as an original toy.
This is an interesting compilation, and great to get caught up with the techniques involved in embedding parts in 3D prints. Perhaps this is not able to solve ourselves, but we have seen another collection that can break this impressive feat. Video after the break.
