Introduction: Self-Solving Rubik's Cube (kinda)

Some of you may have seen me comment, or mention this, but its my final project for my Drafting and Design class. I am using Inventor 2008 to make and assemble it. It took me approx. 3 hours to build. It is also build to exact scale. I am going to ask the teacher tomorrow if i could print it out on the 3-D printer. I will update this video post with drawings/diagrams of all the pieces some time tomorrow as well. I hope you like it, comments are appreciated along with questions.

    ok. i have finals this week to, thankfully i only have one more, YAY. i was just wondering because i am working on a fishertecnik rubix cube solver and this would help a lot. and also, if possible could i get a editable version? because i would need a way to sync this up with the program the solver will follow.

    you would need inventor 2008 to use the files...

    besides the program needing a shizz load of power to run, it costs like $2000+

    Not to mention it's 2 gigabytes. I downloaded the student edition (with the 14-month free license) and it took a day to download. And since my computer is crap, I haven't really been able to run it and my 14 months are almost up. D:

    Did you make that, or just find it on Youtube?

    Exactly what do you mean by Self-Solving. This would be awesome if it had some internal mechanism that allowed only the "correct" side to turn, if you know what I mean.

    i know what you mean, but I scrambled it up, then it will "solve" itself be reversing the mixing of the colours up

    Would the printer actually be able to produce the whole thing in one run, already capable of movement, or will you be printing separate parts and manually assembling them? (Apart from the stickers, of course).

    Either way, if you get to print it, you should takes lots of stills & video and then put a full ible together (although you may want to speed the video up?).

    I would have "print" out each piece separately, then assemble it myself. I was going to ask the teacher if i could print it out today, or start it at least, but he was out sick, and we had a substitute.... which wasn't too bad, he was English :P
