EXAMPLE

For n = 2 there are 8 cubes of volume 1 and 1 cube of volume 8; thus a(2)=9. - José María Grau Ribas, Mar 15 2014

a(6)=229 because we can place 15^2 cubes in a 6 X 6 X 6 cubical grid with their edges parallel to the faces of the grid, plus 4 cubes of edge 3 with a vertex in each face of the lattice and the other two vertices on a diagonal.
