Blind Friendly Rubik's Cube. For this project we took an existing Rubik's Cube and added shapes to it. Six distinct shapes were chosen, one for each color on the puzzle. The shapes were machined from clear acrylic sheet so the shapes would be raised. We chose a translucent adhesive to let the original color still come through.

Review of AutoCad drawing of a product

I posted the job with specs. They were the only ones to actually put in the time to create a quick CAD drawing of it before we had agreed to work together. That is initiative!
Review of Braille/Blind Friendly Rubix Cube

The project was perfect! I appreciated the progress pictures we got along the way. I was really kind of surprised how quickly it all came together. He knew exactly what he wanted to do to accomplish the project, which I was excited about. Really, my only concern is that the raised tile pieces may fall off of the stickers on the Rubik's Cube someday (they're attached to stickers and I know with use that the stickers sonetimes peel off) but I'm not really worried about it, just a thought if he makes another. But I was very pleased, he was totally cool.
As a side note I don't think we could have gotten this made anywhere else. I was so excited when I saw that Custom Made existed. I knew that I had found a place to have this idea from my head made, finally. Awesome. Thanks again.
