Hi

I used 3 (clone) cubes corners only, and one to put the cubies on. In this case Material cost is $4.

But you can build it from a real Rubiks cube and use a PVC bar to make cubies.

Ton, do you have any idea where one can buy PVC "bars" of different thicknesses? I keep meaning to check into plastic suppliers here in Toronto, but I never get around to it. (I spend too much time in this forum!)

Being able to create 4x4x4 and 5x5x5 cubies out of a perfectly sized bar would make the extended 6x6x6 and extended 7x7x7 financially feasable.

PVC is just a type of plastic. And bar stock merely means a rod of PVC but in a squared off shape instead of round. PVC plastic is commonly used in water pipes around the home.

You can buy it (and other rawstock materials) from McMaster-Carr over the internet at

but it ain't cheap.
