i will be showing you how to make the edge piece for the Rubik's Cube.

here are some conversions for you if you are having trouble.

replace all......
....1 1/2 inches with "base"
....1 inch with "2/3 of base"

....3/4 inch with "1/2 of base"

....1/2 inch with "1/3 of base"

....3/8 inch with "1/4 of base"

preset conversions for smoothness of construction

industrial system

base size= 1 1/2 inches
2/3 of base= 1 inch
1/2 of base= 3/4 inch
1/3 of base= 1/2 inch
1/4 of base = 3/8 inch

metric system

base size = 6 cm
2/3 of base= 4 cm
1/2 of base= 3 cm
1/3 of base= 2 cm
1/4 of base= 1.5 cm

closest to rubik's cube size-industrial

base= 3/4 inch
2/3 of base= 1/2 inch
1/2 of base= 3/8 inch
1/3 of base= 1/4 inch
1/4 of base= 3/16 inch

closest to rubik's cube size-metric

base= 2.4 cm
2/3 of base= 1.6 cm
1/2 of base= 1.2 cm
1/3 of base= 8 mm
1/4 of base= 6 mm

If you want to create your own size rubik's cube
youwill probobly need to know a little algebra. not
much. just the concept of variables and how to
use them. just in case you don't know, variables
are just number substitutes. they can be any
number but in this case, you choose the number.
it will be easier on you if you choose a number
divisible by 12. "x" is the variable here. good luck

base= x
1/2 of base= 1/2 of x
1/3 of base= 1/3 of x
1/4 of base= 1/4 of x

sorry but that was useless so to make it up to you...

if you have any questions post in comments.
if you're having trouble with your scaling calculations,
leave a comment with your base number and
ill be glad to help you with your scaling
