Hey,

I am thinking about selling my black paper cube on eBay
Pictures of the cube can be found on Ton's site
http://www.speedcubing.com/ton/dror's_paper_cube.htm

Would anybody be interested in such a cube?
If so, please tell me so I know if it will be worth to put it on eBay.

Thank you
Dror Vomberg

Very Nice. I would be interested and would bid. I have no idea what it would be worth. Do you plan to sticker the cube you would be selling?

Dror,
I was just wondering....
What do you use for pivots on the center cubies? Is the pivoting mechanism made of paper as well?

Doug.

Everything is made from paper.
There isn't any other material in there.

Dror,

I've admired your creation for some time now. May I say, "Fantastic job my friend". It's totally incredible.

Did you draw the pieces by hand or did you create the piece drawings in a computer? What method did you use to glue the seams together on the pieces?

thanks again my friend,
_pink

I used a CAD software to draw the pieces that I constructed in my mind, after taking exact measurments from a studio cube.
For the seams, I just used a normal white glue and a bit of constant presure on the piece until it glued.

Would people be interested in a paper Rubik's Domino?
If so I will conider making one as well.

Dror

Dror,

Would you be interested in sharing your files so others might be able to make a paper cube? Please... :D
