Introduction: BuckyBalls Turn Balls Into a Cube

Start by taking themessof balls and createa single straight line of the BuckyBalls. Be careful not to work around metals that will attract the balls because it is easy to misplace them which would make it impossible to complete the cube. Also, don’t let the magnets get to close to each other or they can attrach each other which makes it hard to peel them apart.

After taking the chain (while keeping the balls far enough apart to prevent an unwantedattachement) count 36 balls inlength and fold the balls to create a 6 by 36 chain (as seen in the photograph). The easiest way to make the 6 by 36 block is to zig zag and let the balls attach themselves. By doing so, this creates a simple network of magnets that can easily be turned into the cube. Keeping the chain on a flat surface to make sure that the magnets all connect at the same time,

count 6 (this would make a 6 x 6 square) and fold it over so now it will look like two 6×6 squares stacked on each other. After doing so, carefully flip the entire system over with the two 6×6 squares on the bottom. Then fold the next 6×6 square on top so it looks like the photograph. To complete the cube, continue folding the chain over the started cube intil you now have a 6x6x6 cube!

Note: If not done on a flat surface or done too quickly the cube will become warped due to polarity and it will be nearly impossible to undo the mistake which means it will be necessary to restart the entire process.
