Puzzle Cube

For our first project was to create a puzzle cube that consisted of 27 cubes to make a 3 x 3 x 3 cube made of smaller cubes. Each of the smaller individual cubes had dimensions of 20mm x 20mm x 20mm.  With each puzzle piece extending in three different dimensions and consisting of at least 5 smaller cubes.

I started by placing all 27 cubes into the the work field in the shape of the cube as a whole. To create each piece I took cubes away from the overall large cube and pieced them together to form different puzzle pieces. My first piece consists of 5 small cubes grouped together to form one larger piece.

             

To create the rest of the remaining pieces, I continued with subtracting cubes from the 27 cube structure and piecing them together to form different pieces.
