Our First Projects of 2013!

My first blog post of the year, and it's about the projects we'll send out this month to subscribers to our Projects of the Month. (Which are still on sale for just $24.95 - a great deal for 12 months worth of projects!)

Rubik's Cube

If you didn't get one of these for Christmas (this year, or in 1985), you can create and play with one in SketchUp! This project shows how to model the completed cube and how to spin the sides, but sorry - you'll have to solve it for yourself!

. . . you add some strategically-placed small squares to create this 3D "pop-out" effect:

To get these projects, and three more each month for a year, subscribe to our  Projects of the Month.

Anyone can design anything in 3D!
