Hey guys, first of all sorry for my bad english, i'm from brazil!
OK, this is the first mechanism created by me, looks like a half-truncated cube but IT'S NOT!
It is fully functional
I created the name murilo's cube because it is my fist name :wink:
thanks

I'm sorry, but that's already been made as the Rhino Cube. Nice work nevertheless.

I was going to design this again, since it's only been made once.

Great work on it!

I think you might want to revisit your design before doing any 3D printing, I think that some of the pieces might fall out very easily using your design.

That's why we didn't make any more Rhino Cubes. The propeller "wings" fell out very easily. I am not sure if it was a design issue, or if it was my building skills. I may have sanded the masters down a little too much, making them loose. Also, I had some screw alignment issues, but I don't think that affected the parts popping easily. I sent the only copy I ever made to Nikola to see what he can do with it, but I don't know if he ever worked on it further.
