### #Nesting Cubes, Recursive Cubes, Cubes within Cubes
This design is a 7-cube that has a 5-cube that has a 3-cube that has a unit cube. Each unit cube is 10 mm^3. Tolerance is added to allow the cubes to slide (nest) into each other.
### #About
the files
1. Each cube has a bottom part and a top cover.
2. The regular versions have a 0.4 mm clearance all around; the loose versions have a 0.5mm clearance.
3. The top covers are the same as the clearance is added to the shells. The 3-cube top is the same as the unit cube.
In addition to the recursive and geometric structures, there are a few questions to explore:
