About this Product

This is the Dino 3x3x3, a puzzle that combines the cuts from two classic puzzles: the Rubik's Cube and the Dino Cube. This puzzle took a lot of time to perfect. It was made based on the Rainbow 3x3x3, but two iterations were needed to get it correct. This version uses magnets to keep the parts in alignment. The magnets are not needed for the functionality of the puzzle but they make turning it and keeping everything aligned much easier.
The result is a puzzle that turns very nicely, with a gentle click from the magnets. This is truly one of the best turning puzzles I ever made.
 
This puzzle will arrive as a DIY kit containing just the plastic parts. You will need to supply your own screws and magnets, but I will send you a set of stickers separately if you send me an email after ordering. You will need 100 of these magnets to finish this puzzle.
Please take extreme care when gluing in the magnets so you get the polarity right. It's not difficult, you can email me for a failsafe method to determine the right polarity. Also note that gluing magnets to plastic is not easy, superglue works okay but you might end up having to reglue some magnets that did not stick properly.
You can also order an assembled copy of this puzzle from me directly, but this option is more expensive and it will take longer to get your puzzle.

Shapeways has recently changed their pricing making this model much more expensive. I've not yet had the time to optimize this model to be as cheap as posible. Please contact me at tom@tomvanderzanden.nl if you are interested in obtaining this puzzle so we can discuss cheaper options.
