I love sharing your photos, responses, and everything with fans of the X-Cube. I'm maintaining an active dialogue with the community as well. This is the place to ask for help and for showing off how fast you can solve it. So far we only have one solution video...
I read one of the most exciting emails I have received in awhile. The first test samples have been successfully produced! This is a very amazing time for this project. I got to see a creation of mine come to life through two very different means of production. What started as a modest 3D print has turned into a real product. Thank you to all you supporters for making this possible.
There are still some final adjustments to be made, but the X-Cube lives!
Sam Dunlap is an IIT public safety officer who works front desk security for the Idea Shop's building. Awhile back I saw him solving a 4x4x4 and challenged him to solve the X-Cube. It took some time and a lot of brain power, but now he has done it!
I'm close to having a few X-Cube samples back! The production process is a lengthy one, so thank you for your patience during this time. I've been very eager to get my hands on a few of them.
Right now I have a back and forth with the manufacturer about the packaging. They have a decent prototype made of the package and right now we are working out the details of it to make sure it is completely up to spec.
I don't htink I ever mentioned it, but I was very busy recently 3D printing a big batch of X-Cubes for the top tier backers on Kickstarter. They came out great! It was a bit of work but we have the art of construction well worked out!
