Intro: Turn Your Lego Projects in to a Rubik's Cube!!!
Step 1: 1
peel all of the stickers off your rubik's cube!!!
make sure you measure the stickers!!!
note: a bare rubik's cube is boring so there's no pic!
Step 2: 2
design your 6 lego models.
save each as a pic.
Step 3: 3
edit the pics in photo shop.
remember those measurements?
multiply them by 3 and make a new pic called blank.
the measurements were 1.5cm X 1.5cm, so the blank pic would be
4.5cm X 4.5cm.
make sure this pic has the same resolution as the pics you made in mlcad (72 px/in. in my case)
take the line tool and set a 1 px weight.
zoom in real close and draw a border around the edge.
save it now.open up all of your pics of the models and resize them to fit just inside the square on the pic called blank.
the blank pic is 128px X 128px, so the reresized pics would be 126px X "x"
select all, copy, and paste the models in to the pic called blank.
close the model you copied from and do layer flatten image to the pick called blank.
do file; save as and save it over the model.
close the previously saved window and re-open the pic called blank.
repeat 5 more times to the others
now create a pick thats 3 "edited" models high and 2 wide.
the "edited" models are 128px X 128px, so the new pic would be 384px X 256px.
re-open all the models and paste them in to the new pic like a grid.
flatten the image and save as complete.
Step 4: 4
print the pic called complete.(you may use mine if you're a Lego Mindstorms NXT fan)
with the pencil and ruler divide each printed model in to 9ths like a 3x3 grid.
cut the models out then cut along the lines you drew, separating each model into separate piles.
stick (glue or tape) the separate pieces so that the cube is already solved.
and that's all!!!
