Introduction: K'nex Mini Color Dice

though It's size is massive compared to a normal dice, this is the tiniest version possible made by normal sized K'nex.
you want to make this?
well, let's start!

Step 1: Gathering Parts

As you can see in the picture, this is what you need to build the dice.

don't have the orange 45° angled ones?
no problem, you can order them on knexusergroup.

don't have all the colors?
no problem, make your own color code.

Step 2: Choosing Colors

as far as my knowledge goes, this are all the original colors these parts come in.
I love their colors.

Step 3: Building Part 1

put all the red connectors and green rods together to make a snake form.
add four Y-clips, four 32 mm rods, and four angled orange clips just as pictured.
connect the two sides to make a cube.
click everything in place.

Step 4: Building Part 2

#1-5 filling the empty sides is easy.
#6-8 use the remaining parts to fill each side.

Step 5: Finished

congratulations! now you can use the dice in boardgames.
do you think you can make an even tinier version than this?

See? This is what I mean with thinking out of the box! I really love this one, since it's so small (I love small) and great, Great use of different K'NEX colours!
Do you have any ideas for future builds?

Thank you.

I made the other cube earlier, which sides were about a white rod in length, so I wondered if I could made it shorter.
I then did connected all the red connectors together and tried to fill the gaps with orange angled (love them) and Y-clips.
I was lucky to have 2 of those expensive purple rods to give each side it's own color, and so it went.

I have currently 1 project running. It's a coin push machine which first half is complete. I'll post an ible of it this month.
The ibles I post, and have posted, already have been build in the last 1,5 year. Each week I want to upload one of them until I'm done.

Aha ^^
Wow, so you have 1½ year of knex builds coming o_o? I'm curious what it will be! If you want, you could also join at Knexflux.net! It's a K'NEX forum for ballmachines/elements and other stuff (everything else, that isn't Roller coasters) You can import your ibles there, so it's more likely that people will watch them :)

yeah, most constructions I made are for practical use. in that time I also build a lot of the official ones which I couldn't make as a child due to resources shortages. haven't you had the same experience?
oh, and thanks for the invite you both. right now I have to decline the offer.
I'm happy as things are now, I just wanted to show my work.

Ooh yes, building old things is satisfying. I used to drool with many things from the knex flyer and catalogue, now it is possible to build ^^

Alright, instructables is still a good place to do that :)
