This is a collection of Cube Frame variations that show progressive small to large enhances, that can affect the overall look and design ...

--------------------------------------------------------------
MAGNETS used - (@1188) - Cube Frame v6

(@576) - Frame - ((22 parallel w/1-ball tips x 22 parallel) x 12)
(@048) - Junction encaps - (8 x 6-ball triangles)
(@504) - Faces - (6 x (20+24+28+(4x3)))
(@108) - Faces Center - (6 x (18) two layered circle

Lighting effect = 3-LED color changing crystal light base


--------------------------------------------------------------
MAGNETS used - (@1116) - Cube Frame v5

(@576) - Frame - ((22 parallel w/1-ball tips x 22 parallel) x 12)
(@048) - Junction encaps - (8 x 6-ball triangles)
(@504) - Faces - (6 x (20+24+28+(4x3)))
(@072) - Faces Center - (6 x (12) 1 layered circle

--------------------------------------------------------------
MAGNETS used - (@1080) - Cube Frame v4

(@576) - Frame - ((22 parallel w/1-ball tips x 22 parallel) x 12)
(@048) - Junction endcaps - (8 x 6-ball triangles)
(@504) - Faces - (6 x (20+24+28+(4x3)))

Corners joined with 3 tips center, inward, adjacent parallel end to end, entire subunit rotated up/inward to meet other side of parallel end to end to. form joint.

Added 6-ball triangles at each joint at 2-ball junctions to reinforce joints.More compact.

Added indented truncated pyramids @084) - started with full pyramid and removed top portion leaving last 3-layers. Then added 3-ball spacers and attached them to the inside frame layer.

MAGNETS used - (@576) - Cube Frame v3

Core frame
(@576) - ((22 parallel w/1-ball tips x 22 parallel) x 12) + (8 x 6-ball triangles)

Corners joined with 3 tips center, inward, adjacent parallel end to end, entire subunit rotated up/inward to meet other side of parallel end to end to. form joint.

Added 6-ball triangles at each joint at 2-ball junctions to reinforce joints.More compact.

--------------------------------------------------------------
MAGNETS used - (@600) - Cube Frame v2

Core frame
(@600) - ((22 parallel w/1-ball tips x 22 parallel) x 12) + (8 x 9-ball triangles)

Corners joined with 3 tips center, inward, adjacent parallel end to end, entire subunit rotated up/inward to meet other side of parallel end to end to. form joint.

Added 9-ball triangles at each joint at 2-ball junctions to reinforce joints.

--------------------------------------------------------------
MAGNETS used - (@528) - Cube Frame v1

Core frame
(@528) - ((22 parallel w/1-ball tips x 22 parallel) x 12)

Corners joined with 3 tips center, inward, adjacent parallel end to end, entire subunit rotated up/inward to meet other side of parallel end to end to form joint.

Detail of junction corner ... NOTE: bar subunit ends form the 3-ball triangle (center) and the 2-ball joints are formed by rotating the outside edge in-ward so the balls will meet.
