3D model description

####Spin the Cube, Cone, Hyperboloid

The cube is certainly worth playing around; there is so much mathematics in and around it. In this design, I sliced the cube along its major diagonal and created some space to mount a 608 bearing for a desktop math toy. It is easy to assemble and spins smoothly.

Among the Files

  1. The top part of a 50mm cube.
  2. The stand (lower part) with two levels of tolerance: 7.98mm and 7.90mm refer to the diameter of the axle going into the inner ring of the 608 bearing.

To Print & Assemble

A resolution of 0.2 mm worked well for me. If the axle is too tight, please sand it a little bit. If it is too loose, try a piece of adhesive tape or a drop of super glue. Once the bearing (608) is pushed in, it could be hard to remove. I left some notches around to help with that. Try using a small screw driver and be patient.
