301: the striped tube

how do you make a striped tube out of magnet balls? we’ll show you! this build is made from 512 speks and uses 2 colors.


watch the video or check out the step by step guide below.


here's what you need for this one:

the speks striped tube step-by-step:

  • step one.

    pull your first color of speks into a single chain. fold the chain back on itself every 32 speks to form a 32x8 spek sheet.


  • step two.

    repeat step one with a second color.

  • step three.

    use your speks splitter card to split each of the sheets into 2x32 spek strips.

  • step four.

    align and attach alternating colors of strips into a 16x32 speks sheet.

  • step five.

    use your splitter card to remove a 1x16 alternating spek chain.

  • step six.

    attach the ends of the chain to form a alternating 16 speks ring. repeat steps five and six 32 times/

  • step seven.

    stack each ring, rotating each layer to make your tube. you can align or interlock the layers, but interlocking makes a stronger shape!

  • the end.
