About this Product

Cubic Trisection was first shown to George Miller by Robert Reid as part of his box of all the ways a cube could be trisected by three equal parts. They were all paper models that were rectilinear with the exception of this beautiful little curved trisection. George was intrigued by it and finally made one when he got a 3D printer. George asked Oskar van Deventer to design it. He printed it in green, red and yellow as per Oskar's love of children's colors. It came out great. George have since purchased a new 3d printer which does not yet have the color green. At the request of one of George's English customers, he had changed the colors to red, white, and blue. The new colors are brilliant. Most people have a difficult time putting it together. They usually try and force the pieces to "snap" together, whereas they easily glide together when twisted along the main diagonal. George later learned that the magnificent Dutch artist, Rinus Roelof, had also come up with a similar trisection all in silver.
