3D Printed Interlocked Cubes: Shapeways- 08.23.12

cubes0.jpg Current desk/fidget toy obsession - interlocked 3D printed CUBES! Particularly the dodecahedron one… they are mesmerizing, and just fragile enough they make you feel overly careful with them… yet its so tempting to try to bust your way into the structure just to prove there are more of the same shape within…

Anyhow, late one night i was wandering through all of shapeways and couldn’t resist impulse buying the Dod’net by Magic and the mini Interlocked Cubes Demo… it seemed like a good excuse to get a feel for their polished alumide! Also, it was a fun way to get a peek at their packaging ~ you certainly get a BIG fragile air bubble packed box for the two little pieces which are ziplocked inside… See the unboxing and details on the next page!

Hey, this is Magic from Shapeways!
Thank you for featuring the Dod’Net!
I am really happy that you like it, and I must say that your pictures are awesome (I am jealous: mine is just white).

When I received my own Dod’Box I could not believe that the model arrived unbroken! But this was in April 2009 and even today none of the 64 dodecahedra is missing! But I confess that I always manipulate it with caution!

Have fun with your 3D models!
