Thank you all, 2x2x2 runs very well, but the shape symmetry has been a real failure,
I'll do another soon, without using the "plinths" applying extensions.

Best Regards

Rafael

The 5x5x5 looks amazing. As much as I like it stickered, I think I enjoy the bare photo more because you can see how clean it is.

Great work.

Dave

hello thank you,
I fully agree, every time I cut the stickers on the bases like these I think of how much work I threw
but fortunately, if things continue to go well as a recently, I will be able to purchase a plotter
that the result will make it less daunting, however, always better naked
Best regards
Rafael

May I ask how you made those cuts so nicely? I've tried making these cuts on a cube of mine but the angle of the cut makes it incredibly difficult for me to cut them nicely. What tools and method did you use to make these non-parallel/non-perpendicular cuts?

For me is more difficult make cuts such as, cuboctahedrons and others, you could read and wiew this little tutorial, hoping it will help you,
