    The math was surprisingly simple.

    Hmm, well the pieces in the gif look very different than the ones in your picture, so maybe that's it?

  • RyanFodderRyanFodder Detroit, MI

    I'm home, and @GnomeQueen‌ was right, they aren't the same. I stand corrected, I'm full of lies and awful.

    That being said, I figured it out, I think. Shall find out tonight.

    The one thing I noticed about the ones in the gif that yours did not have is that each side of the finished cube had all three colors. Each piece has 6 planes.

    I look forward to seeing the next try :)

    OK, here is the latest attempt. It works!

    I will print another with more clearance, as these tended to need some force to put together.

    And the finished assembly:

    In case anyone is wondering, this is a 120 degree cut, revolved 300 degrees along the center axis of the cube (diagonal corner to corner). The parts turn out to be symmetric about said axis with this amount of revolution.

    For science:

    I fucking love science.

    Printed the clearance model shown above. I added a bit too much and its a little to easy to go together now. But it looks good if you guys want one :)

    I have the colors shown and black ;)

    Do they stay together?

  • RyanFodderRyanFodder Detroit, MI

    Yes, but they slide around if you hold them.

    Together

    Holding it:
