  1. Any idea as to the size?    Here is another http://theiff.org/oexhibits/menger02.html  Constructed from standard American business cards, they were built by a friend , J9 Mosely.  Depth zero  is a cube, 5cm on a side, made from 6 cards.  By combining cubes, you can get a Depth one , which is 15cm on each side.  Depth two  is  45cm per side. The largest one she has constructed,  a Depth three (same complexity as the post-it one above) is 1.35 meters on a side. It took in excess of 60,000 cards, and is too big to move in a typical minivan.

    For those that would like a unique keychain ornament, a small sponge is one of the standard demo pieces for 3D printers.

      If you go to their Flickr stream, there are a couple of images with hands in the shot that makes for a nice scale — looks like each level-zero face is a little less than one centimeter.
