5x5x7 Cuboid 3D printed extensions
These 3D printed extensions will allow more people to make/own a 5x5x7 cuboid. Anyone can have a set of these extensions 3D printed and then glue them onto a Shengshou 77mm 7x7x7 and do a little basic bandaging to transform it into a 5x5x7 cuboid.
You have the option to only glue on the extensions onto a base puzzle with little or no finishing for a rough looking, but still playable puzzle. Or, if you are more of a modder, you can fill the seams, sand things, and paint the puzzle for a more polish looking 5x5x7 cuboid.
In the near future, I hope to add some build tips for applying these extensions and possibly even some sort of build videos to help demonstrate how these extensions can be used. In the meantime, you are welcome to contact me or join the Facebook group Puzzle Modders Anonymous for additional assistance with puzzle modding. If you are new to modding I would encourage you to subscribe to Nathan Wilson’s YouTube Channel for tons of use modding related information and tips.
- You will need to print TWO sets of the STL file for this mod. This mod requires extensions for both the top & bottom faces.
- These extensions are specifically built to fit the specified base puzzle. They may or may not fit other puzzles.
- All my tests were FDM printed in ABS material (black or white), but PLA should work equally well.
- I would recommend 100 micron layers; 150 micron layers also produced acceptable parts, but I would not go higher than 200 micron layers.
- You can purchase many of my extensions in a kit (with stickers) from Oliver’s Stickers.
- Stickers can be purchased at Oliver’s Stickers
