Good day! Is it possible to make an axis^3 cube?(applying 3 axis concept in a 3x3) Because it might just return to an axis cube, but I'm not sure. Anyone there that can help me with this? Illustrations are very appreciated. Thanks!

Axising a cube three times along the same axis would just give you an axis cube, and axising twice would give you a normal cube. But axising an axis cube on a different axis could be interesting

I think if we axising the axis cube 2 time it will be the HL cube or beveling axis cube

3 times? I think it will be the normal 3x3 or an axis cube

Axising twice (different axes) gave me this cube:

But I see it's already been done.

When I did an Axis^3 I got this:

The marked point is exactly half way along that edge. Is this correct?

Ours are slightly different, but I had that aswell. In fact the regular axis cube has also the same thing (being four edges divided in half by the cuts). BTW you use SketchUp aswell?
EDIT: Well that question was redundant, should have remembered from my lurking...

The Beveling cube can be made by extending this puzzle

And again... Gus helped me. Thanks Gus, I'm gonna start building this puzzle. Truncations are all Hexagonal dipyramid, right?

Rex, be careful, I have not analysed this very much. If I do the third axising but pick a different rotaion axis I get:

I have tried a couple more but I just get repeats of the previous cubes. Maybe a more detailed analysis is required. As to how you actually build one of these, I have no idea

So how did the first one happen? Just a some kind of error?

I don't think so, it's just that I guess that for the third axising you have a choice of axes, so you get different results. Anyone with Solidworks out there who can provide a definitive answer?
