Cool: Stainless Steel Rubiks Cube

Saw this on HackerNews today and thought y’all might get a kick out of it.

“ The cube is made out of 303 stainless steel. Initially I wanted to make it out of one of the more corrosion resistant austenitic alloys, like 304 or 316. However, after having tried to make other things out of frustratingly tough and gummy 304, I was defeated. 316 is no better, so I settled on the sulfurized, more machinable 303 - it’s no 6061 aluminum, but at least it’s not the devil’s chewing gum.”

:rofl:

Do we have the equipment to do this @ ASMBLY? I’ve been meaning to take the metal milling classes, and this got me excited…

Here’s the link to the HN discussion, which seems to have gathered a lot of maker folks to the thread.

That’s a cool project. Smooth machined cubes like that are satisfying, I’m excited to start milling too
