I am in the middle of a mod, and would like to give some hints about it...
1. It will be the highest order twisty puzzle
2. Cubies 1 inch squares, 1/4 inches thick.
3. It is made out of knex, duct tape, and foamboard.
Any ideas?

Theoretically, yes.
And it will be a 1x1x180

Well if you're Oskar... :lol: Still, a 1x1x180 would be awesome! You must be insane! If you order stickers from Oliver Nagy, you'll run him out of sticker material :lol: You should make it adjustable so that you could continually add onto it!

What I am doing is duct taping a bunch of gray knex together, and then I am going to cut out foamboard and put it on. I will probably either print stickers or just coloring the sides.

Yes, except one piece will be glued to the core.
Edit: actually, the top and bottom pieces, so it is not fully functional :(

Guys, a conversation between two people that is mostly a game of "guess the number" is perhaps better handled in email or PMs.
There is already a thread about hints, but isn't intended to be a guessing game so this wouldn't fit there either.
Please do consider what your posts give to the community compared to just a private conversation.

Dave :)
