This is my version of the dino cube. It measures 50mm to an edge, so it is the same size as an Eastsheen 2x2. Even though I showed my Inverted 1x2x3 earlier, this is my first design in CAD (I ran out of resin at least a month ago, and didn't get a chance to buy new resin and finish the puzzle until yesterday). I had masters printed in Shapeways' transparent detail, and it was casted with Smooth-Cast 300. Despite occasional lockups, the turning is very smooth. :D The stickers are just temporary stickers that I made myself out of paper, packing tape, and double sided tape. I will get real stickers in the future, once put money in my Paypal account. I am willing to sell a couple if anyone is interested. If you would like to buy one, PM me and we can work something out.
