The ‘How to’ for NEOCUBE

Some tips for making shapes:-

  • When connecting 2 shapes for examples 2 triangles, they will not go together happily all the time. If they do not want to connect turn a triangle over and try again – this is alligning the poles correctly
  • If you accidently put the magnets too close together they will stick to each other thus causing a lot of frustration and maybe having to redo the shape you are trying to accomplish
