Also, that was the 100th comment on the thread. Man, this is one looong thread.
I definitely hope people find out about this cube I am sure qiyi will advertise it somehow though.Yeah, somewhere back in this thread Sion mentioned the limiteds. This was a project that just sprung up, so many people do not know about it,so spreading news would be saying stuff like 'Hey, check out this thread:', explaining it and giving a link, just to spread awareness of this cube. Also, we are grateful for your contribution at the beginning, since it helped us improve the cube.
Actually 3D printing is pretty cheap, you could print a 3x3 only with 2-3 dollars depending on the quality of the material used and the print quality. The printer is the most expensive part of 3d printingHow much does 3D printing cost? I've heard it's pretty expensive
Really can't say when, or even quite if the cube will hit mass production, and as for 3D printing, printers can cost anywhere from $1000 for a solid one, to $30,000+ for top, high end ones, that is printers, material is pretty cheap, and the amount that goes into a part, like a cube piece, is hardly anything, so printers, can be expensive, printing, quite cheap, and fairly efficientHey guys! When is this cube getting released? I'm very excited for this cube to release. It's gonna be pretty good! Also, just for fun... How much does 3D printing cost? I've heard it's pretty expensive
I'd recommend checking the internals to see what's actually catching. It might be the stalks of the pieces, and if so, maybe you should round those off. Keep in mind it could also be related to the material you're using; 3D printer material is quite different from plastic that's usually used.Okay. It's been a while since I last posted here, so I felt that it was appropriate to send out an update;
I'm honestly not sure where QiYi went, and I hope they are still in it with us. So at the moment i'm not sure if we will be able to make this mass produced, although i'm absolutely still in this project and trillions of light years away from quitting.
With that said, there is a chance that the giveaway might not happen (at least for a long time), but as stated before,i'm all hands in devoted to the project, but I again don't know where QiYi went, or if they were just giving support and not really interested. I personally thing that they are rather busy with designing other puzzles, and I want to believe the latter over the former.
In the very worst case scenario, I might try to produce this here in the US, and possibly market out globally in a store bought setting.
Right now, as Abo has said, our prototype catches. A lot. we did try rounding the edges and corners, but we still have this issue. I want to come to the community for ideas of how we can fix this catching issue. So place your ideas here, and maybe we can use them to help better our designs.
Due to it being summer, I have no access to my schools 3D printers, which is where I was working on prototype and model alterations and such when communicating with Sion, so overall, this project is a little bit on-hold per se. Anyway, to what you were saying, what is your website, wanna know a little about it before you go off posting about this on there.This thread is one of my favorites on this forum - I've been lurking ever since this post came out! I'd love to help, but I can't think how. Maybe I could do a post about you on my website?
