Nano Rubik’s Cube: Shapeways Member 3D Prints Puzzles in Millimeters [Video]
With the announcement of Shapeways’ $6.2 million funding, we thought we would look back at some of the amazing designs their community has produced.
Community member Evgeniy Grigoriev (aka grigorusha) has designed a number of micro-sized twisty puzzles. These are popular puzzles shrunk down to millimeter size, only made possible by 3D printing.
Here is a video of a customer assembling the Evgeniy Grigoriev’s 12mm Rubik’s Cube. You can buy this and some of his other puzzles at his Shapeways shop.
And, for comparison, here is a video of the smallest Rubik’s Cube made without 3D printing, available at http://tonyfisherpuzzles.net.
