The Radio Cube 3 is a cubic transformation of Jason Smith's Radiolarian 3. It has icosahedral cut geometry, and it is slightly shallower-cut than my DeFTI (aka "Eitan's Star" by MF8). To build this puzzle, you will need 20 flat-head M3 screws that are at least 12mm long (or the standard equivalent). You can buy stickers at Oliver's sticker shop:


IN: 3.972 w x 3.541 d x 3.499 h
CM: 10.09 w x 8.994 d x 8.888 h

I destroyed one block from Radio Cube 3 Can I order it (without ordering the whole cube)? By the way, I could buy another cube.

@youryeekbubby Please read the earlier comments from joris2110. I do not have my own copy of either puzzle with me right now, so I cannot make a tutorial video. However, I have posted a request on the Twisty Puzzles forum.

December 26, 2013, 8:58 pm

@joris2110 Have patience. It takes a lot of time and effort to make a video.
November 30, 2013, 1:01 pm

@joris2110 I will ask any forum members if they would be willing to post a video of themselves assembling the Radio Cube 3. I would do it myself, but I don't have a copy of my own right now. In the meantime, see if you can figure it out yourself! It's a good challenge!

@pirsquared can you figure out how to solve the master curvy copter? I might buy it if you can make a totorial
November 14, 2013, 5:19 am
@youryeekbubby Nope. I have only been able to solve a few of my own puzzles (MegaTwist, GigaTwist, Rubik's Cube shape mods, Eitan's Star). I'm more of a designer than a solver.

@pirsquared can you solve the master curvy copter?
November 14, 2013, 5:15 am
@youryeekbubby Nope! I'm waiting for one of the solving geniuses on the TP forum to make a tutorial. :)
November 14, 2013, 5:13 am
@pirsquared can you solve the master curvy copter and this one?
November 14, 2013, 5:12 am
@youryeekbubby Not that I know of. It's one heck of a crazy puzzle!
November 13, 2013, 4:25 pm
@pirsquared is there a video on how to solve this?

Well then, because already there is I have him to house. I understands what you intend, from us in Italy the mantua it produces the glue blue and red, Cyanoacrylic. The blue one acts once in 5 seconds terrible for the hands I have detached the skin to unstick two fingers. the red is more slow it acts in 35 45 seconds and fortunately me is remained only this to house. here is the glue . Tomorrow I will try with the red glue hoping not to whiten the cube, The plastics of shapeways is excellent but honestly not is done for attaching him stickers than above. I make you know.

@Godlegend I have used cyanoacrylate glue, which is commonly known as "super glue." But I use a type that is a little more viscous than typical super glue. Here's a link:

The cube is fantastic, solid, it turns very well, I like a lot the plastics, is a sin to put the stickers, is beautiful also without. :) The difficulty will be to resolve it. For the stickers, the more glue' strong that know is the glue Cyanoacrylic that is used for the naval modelling, that acts in 5 seconds and he doesn't detach anymore', but after 5 minutes ago to become the white plastics, in practice it corrodes it (dangerous for the cube). You that glue you have used? could you point out me one of it of a famous brand so' that can also find it from me, or you tell me that you have used you? Thanks

@Godlegend I would recommend using super glue to get the stickers to stick. It's kind of a pity, but that's the only way I've found to get the stickers to stick. How do you like the puzzle?
April 22, 2013, 1:02 am
I have assembled the cube, however' the stickers of oliver don't stick to the rough plastics of the cube :( , that I can do? do I have to glue them with some particular glue? Eitan you can help me?
April 22, 2013, 12:36 am
These should work.
April 15, 2013, 11:06 pm
Hi Eitan, excuse you could post a photo of one of the 20 screws? Or can you post an Url of shop online that he sells these screws? I Want to exactly see as they have to be. Thanks
April 15, 2013, 11:02 pm
ok in these days I will make the purchase, compliments for your creations, also the Celtic cube is very beautiful, but because is 4 times the price of the radio cube 3 :( ?
March 28, 2013, 11:14 pm
@Godlegend Nope. No springs needed.
March 28, 2013, 11:06 pm
ok, but the puzzle it needs springs to correctly rotate?
March 28, 2013, 11:05 pm
@Godlegend Unfortunately, the package does not come to me. I'm sure that if you go to any local hardware store you can find the screws or the inch equivalents.
March 28, 2013, 11:02 pm
Ok thanks :) I thought they were the measures of the puzzle. Is a problem if in the package with the puzzle you put also the 20 flat-heads M3 screws (I can pay her. I would like to be sure not to be wrong). do they serve springs for the 20 flat-heads M3 screws?
March 28, 2013, 10:56 pm
@Godlegend Those are the dimensions of the print, but not of the puzzle. The puzzle has an edge length 65mm.
March 28, 2013, 10:26 pm
Are The measures exact? cm: 4.498 w x 4.498 d x 4.498 h? on shapeways they say 6,5 cm (65mm). ??
