```These cubes came up as an answer to a question in sci.fractals.
Menger cube code By Szabolcs Horv=E1t <szhorvat at gmail.com> :
Clear[pieces, menger]
pieces =
Complement[
Flatten[Table[{i, j, k}, {i, 0, 2}, {j, 0, 2}, {k, 0, 2}],
2], {{1, 1, 1}, {0, 1, 1}, {2, 1, 1}, {1, 0, 1}, {1, 2, 1}, {1, 1,
0}, {1, 1, 2},}]
menger[cornerPt_, sideLen_, n_] :=
menger[cornerPt + #1*(sideLen/3), sideLen/3, n - 1] & /@ pieces;
menger[cornerPt_, sideLen_, 0] :=
Cuboid[cornerPt, cornerPt + sideLen*{1, 1, 1}];

gr = Flatten[menger[{0, 0, 0}, 1, 2]];
Show[Graphics3D[gr], Boxed -> False]
