It is 54mm high (the same as an average/standard cube), making it a perfect pocket-sized puzzle.
It's available in all coloured strong and flexible plastics.
I have worked hard on this to provide the cheapest possible puzzle; I have actually halved the price of the original prototype with my latest print.
Please note, this is not the final version. I am currently adjusting the tolerances of the mechanism and caps with each prototype. It is recommended to wait until the prototyping has finished before purchasing.
If you do purchase a prototype, you may need to "work" the caps or mechanism to get the components to fit. This is due to the printing tolerances. This can be done using sandpaper or similar material.
You will need a 2.5mm x 25mm screw/nut (M2.5 Nylon screw is recommended (or any screw that doesn't become loose when turned frequently) with small washers). You will also need stickers to build this puzzle. For your convenience, professionally designed and laser-cut stickers, made specifically for this puzzle can be purchased over at:
If you're looking to buy an assembled and stickered version, please send me a message.
