Some Metal puzzles

Have been silent for several months...
These days, there are no cubes, but some metal works.
Now they are all prototypes, boxes also.
This time, boxes are much better than old ones.
I will also try to make puzzles better!


Released !

Now, 4x4x3 is Released!
Black and White version are available.
Still some Blue left, Transparent just one piece.


OK, tight enough !

Tight enough. Ready to work !


Not tight enough ...

Got the newest samples last Friday.
In my last video, caps are easy to fall out.
In blue version, caps are glued onto the cube, can not be disassembled.
Now caps have been modified, and no longer fall out, but I do not think it is tight enough.
Everything is OK, but the caps.
One more week ...


Sorting and Assembling ...

Molds of 4x4x3 are ready, I got numerous of parts ...
In Spring Festival, all are in vacation, but I am sorting and assembling :)
Now, blue version only.

Producing and Assembling

5x5x4 is in production now.
It needs two weeks for producting and assembling.

Sorry about that ...

I don't think this cube is good, It has many defects.

Sample of 5x5x4

The sample of 5x5x4 came out this weekend.
But I am a little disappointed .
Its quality is not as good as I expected.
The mold is not precise enough,
so the surface is not very neat and it does not turn very smoothly.

There is no problem with the function, but the hand feeling is far from 445.
It needs much more improvement.
so we have to wait a few weeks.
Here is the video on youtube: Sample of 5x5x4
Photo later...


New Boxes

New boxes come out. They are much better than old ones.
Clarity, Color, Cut (there is no Carat ...) are all improved :)
And, the sample of 5x5x4 is coming ...
Happy Dragon Boat Festival !

Boxes are ready, but I am not satisfied with them.
I don't think it is good enough.
I'd like it to be a whole window on the front side, but the factory cut it into girds.
These boxes will not be put into market, I'll rebuild another batch.

Ayi's Toy 4x4x5 sp1

Many people think it would be better if all parts are capped.
So I make some caps for 445.
Not all parts, just caps for corners/ top layer edges/ 4th layer edges/ middle layer edges.
Need to be printed 8 times for one cube.
You can see the details and download STL files here: 4x4x5 sp1
