[Admin: Split from 24-cube for sale ***Now shipping***]

I would like to reserve one on the off chance they are still available.

All have been sold, but you may find someone willing to sell you their kit. Keep in mind these were never sold as completed puzzles, but instead a license to build two from the provided .stl files.

Precious few have actually been built, so finding one may be difficult. But finding someone with one of the few licenses may be easier. I still have dreams of building mine (#3!) but there may be others who have decided that if they haven't built one by now they can let their license go to someone else. You would still face the challenge of moving from .stl to an actual puzzle...

Good luck!

Dave :)

I completely missed this 24 cube thread, it was before I became active on these forums. I notice that the thread just sort of ends with the.drizzle saying he was going to do the DDH mode. What happened?

Why did so few ever get made, was it just the expense of the 3D print. With the Shapeways pricing model, what would it cost now?

Gus,

I uploaded all the stl's of the 24cube to shapeways and I was shocked. The complete print will cost more than 2000 USD. The count of the triagles are extremely high. Therefore you can't put together and can't combine a lot of pieces.

But the sound and the feeling of an assembled puzzle makes me happy.

Are you saying that because of the triangle limit the model had to be split into different files, and thus each set of files could not achieve the 10% density + over 20cm3 = 50% discount limits? If the triangle count is so high, why not use Meshlab to reduce it?

Gus, I made some expirience. But with worth results.

For a lot of pieces the file size of the stl's is 56 and more kb. You can't combine twice and upload them (there is a limit by 64kb).
Then I have a problem with the number of triangles and have no idea how I can reduze it. Questions about questions...

I helped me by printing only the pieces they have a great risk to damaging in stl. All the other I printed with FDM in ABS.

Do you mean MB?

Shapeways provide a tutorial here but how much you can simplify the model by is not easy to tell. There was some discussion about this here but it looks to be rather complicated and it is not easy to see how the reduction of triangles affects the puzzle.
