X-Cube 3D Printed Open Source Puzzle Cube: Rubikulous

by Lambert Varias

Dane Christianson’s X-Cube is not the weirdest, most complex or most sophisticated puzzle cube I’ve ever seen. But Dane didn’t really want to make the world’s most difficult or intimidating take on the Rubik’s cube. His aim with the X-Cube was to make a fun and relatable product to raise people’s awareness about 3D printing.


The X-Cube is made of 52 moving parts and 102 stickers, which Dane says leads to 125 decillion possible permutations.

For me, the most impressive part about the X-Cube is that it’s open source. You have to pledge at least $40 (USD) to its Kickstarter fundraiser to get a finished version as a reward, but you only need to pledge $1 to get the toy’s 3D files, which you can then use to print the toy yourself. Dean says he’s not worried about knockoffs; in fact, he says he’ll welcome them if it means more people will become aware of 3D printing.
