Today I show my latest design called:

Claus Triple Cheese Three Colour Tetra with a built-up video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRvtYNm82gE

I printed it in 3 different colours (black, white and grey) and I am not planning to sticker it in future.

That looks great Claus! And I think you're right in not stickering it.

An alternating two colour version would look nice as well I reckon.

Nice mod Claus. Those are some giant pieces hanging off such a small mechanism :shock: I think you should call it the (CT)^3 to keep the mathematicians among us happy :lol:

Gus, your idea for the name is great. I changed it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The pieces are hollow. The wall thickness is 1mm by FDM printing.

Cool!

Though technically, it should be called the (CT)^3, not the CT^3. (I'm correcting Claus, not Gus)

CT^3 = CTTT
(CT)^3=CTCTCT

:P

My wife married a doctor. She thought that was a good thing to do!

Now she realises she has married a crazy man who is obsessed with puzzles of all sorts. Now the postman knows me by my first name and has seen my huge puzzle collection! Never mind a mathematician! Even a "normal" man can be crazy underneath!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha. Ha!
Need more puzzles!!!! :twisted: :twisted:
