Snake Cuboids
...or should I call them Snakoid cubes? An abstract 3D experiment
About this creation
I think there's only one solution to build the 2x2 cube:


The bigger ones have a kind of "revolvong symmetry", if someone can tell me how it's called? The 3x3 is my favourite:


A 4x4, made of two "snakes". The base is necessary to hold the orange snake:


Thanks for visiting, see ya!

Quoting Donald Norby These are just fantastic. I really want to try my hand at this and make one for my desk at work. Hope you wouldn't have an objection. Brilliant work!!!!
Go build!

Quoting Yuki Fubuki I believe these are called Hilbert cubes. Anyways, they are rendered lovely in LEGO! Gonna go make some for my office... Thanks for the inspiration!
No problem ;-) Thank you for the heads up, but after further investigation, they're just Hilmbert cubes inspired, strictly mathematically speaking...

Quoting Nils O., Ian Very clever, I love this kind of stuff. Great job! :-))
Thanks guys!

Quoting Garry Young If the 4x4 used a different color other than orange, would it still need the base stand underneath it? Fantastic idea, superbly built! These should go up on Lego Ideas. They would surely get 10,000 votes!
Hmm... Maybe it's worth trying!

Quoting Didier B Absolument superbe !! C'est amusant car j'étais en train de travailler sur un moc à base de cubes. Je tournais autour de l'idée mais je n'arrivais pas à sortir quelque chose de satisfaisant. J'aurais adoré aboutir à ce que tu as fait. Excellent vraiment ! Didier
Ha ha! J'ai d'autres idées, il y a tellement de choses à faire à base de cubes... J'aimerais beaucoup voir à quoi tu aboutis - si tu continues à chercher!

Quoting Gerald F. Now this... is ART! Hehe I love these! They remind me of that game app called "lines" where your line can't touch any other line. They move in cuadratical directions sort of like the movements you captured in these cubes. Also, these cubes would make cool looking buildings if there was glass between the hollow parts of them. Very imaginative work! Keep On Brickin'!
Thanks! Gotta look for that game... I had a similar idea while building them, so a building in the same vein will probably come out of this!

Quoting Jeremy McCreary These are just superb, Tom. The black and orange one should be in an art gallery. Really.
Thanks a lot Sir!

Quoting Henrik Jensen These sculptures are really brilliant! Ì`m wondering if it`s possible to make the 5x5 cube with only one snake?
Glad you like them! I used two colours by choice and didn't ask myself if it was possible to use one... So the answer is probably yes, I'll try it soon :-)

Quoting Elk Guard Amazing work, how did you come up with the idea? .....and who has that much light blue!
I was drawing cubes and thinking of drawing a 3D maze on the sides, but I did that instead, if that's an explanation? :-) VW Beetle + Cool Convertible + Tower Bridge... That's a lot for two handfuls of light blue!

Quoting LEGO DOUGHNUT(Sean Holway) that black and orange one is amazing! makes me want to have one of these on my desk...
Thanks! You can build one easily, it's pretty straightforward and I guess the pictures show you enough to make your own :-)

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head Baffling! Great stuff...personally I prefer "snakoid cubes."
I hesitated because I like "snakoid cubes" as you do, but when you shorten it, its just makes cube, and I prefer cuboid... This is shakespearian!

There's no leak in my cubes! ;-)

Quoting MCLegoboy ! Woah. This looks great. Beautiful pieces. I want to make some now, but I know I don't have the tiles.
If you have a chance to go to a Lego Store, just grab every tile in sight :-) That's how I got all that orange!

Thanks a lot L'étranger! Impressive is a great compliment coming from you :-)

Quoting David Roberts Nice! I like how the first one looks like three separate pieces from the main angle and then you reveal it to be one length. You've done a great job of keeping everything a constant width/cross section. People forget that Lego isn't square, so doing what you've done is hard!
I didn't think it would seem like 3 separate pieces but that's good! Yes, exploring the square-ness of Lego is fun, and not so hard once you get a few tricks. I'll probably try more stuff like that in the future...
