(Industrial Laser Solutions) The Rubik’s Cube became one of the world’s most popular toys and more than 350 million had been sold by 2009. Now, a worthy successor has arrived that could only have been created using additive manufacturing or 3D printing technology. The new Marusenko Sphere is both a 3D logic puzzle and an educational toy. It is available in 10 color schemes and five levels of difficulty, depending on the configuration and color combination of its 32 exterior pieces, which are supported by 22 internal elements. Rapid prototyping from plastic powder in an EOS Formiga P 100 additive manufacturing machine played an important role in making the toy a reality.
