The Braille Rubik's Cube is DIY the can be made for users who are blind so that they can use the Rubik's Cube.
Step 1: Gather materials.
- Rubiks cube.
- Double sided automotive tape.
- Alcohol to clean the cube and 3D printed tiles.
- There are nine tiles on each side so 54 tiles in all.
- You will also need a sharp hobby knife.
- A board to cut on and a clean well lit work area.
Step 2: Preparing the tiles.
The author stuck tiles in a line using double sided tape and then cutting the tape square with a knife. Using a sharp hobbie knife, and a cutting board helped to keep the tape tidy and square. Just cut the tape around all 54 tiles and they will be ready fro the next step.
Step 3: Stick the tiles to your cube.
If your cube has colored stickers on it you might want to remove them, my cube has colored plastic panels, which are not going to fall off. Next give every thing a good clean with some alcohol and start sticking the tiles on. I set this cube up like a dice so the opposite sides add up to seven. So the one dots and opposite the six dots, the twos are opposite the fives. and the threes and fours are opposite each other.
The hardest part of the project is getting all the tiles straight. When you first stick them one you can push the tile around a little to get it in the right position, but the glue on the tape will quickly set so best to carefully position tile straight as you can when you first drop them on the cube.
