To the designers out there,

When I have finished adjusting the cut sketch to my satisfaction, I delete all duplicate parts, and all mirrors. I then add tolerances, fillets and shell one of the parts, and save that part in this format: "name of part, part count, mirror/ no mirror" as this really helps when I import into TomZ's PartStacker.

My question is; Which of your own designs has the most unique parts excluding mirrors? And how many parts in total?

Just curious :D

Well, I assume you are talking about all the puzzle parts, including hidden parts and the core? In that case my 3D design for the Ghost cube has 27 unique parts, 28 if you include the split design for the centres (but I would guess that parts split into multiple pieces for assembly reasons do not count).

That is what I meant :)

Ooo clever! I didn't think of shape mods! I was just thinking of complex puzzles like Eitan's Nebula, imagine the unique piece count of a Ghost Nebula :shock: :lol:

I see another TP form joke coming along.

Once a triple fused void petaminx comes around, I'll allow another joke. :D

Never mind that, it already seems like it's happening.

P.S. Both of those first two quotes ended in a :shock: . Coincidence?

Just a thought here, but would eitans star and nebula even allow for a ghost version? Looking at the puzzle in action (on youtube, I dont own either puzzle) it seems the cuts are too shallow to allow for the large amount of cutting down the puzzle would need. (Unless, of course you extended the pieces, in which case, kudos to you.)

On a silly note: I don't know what to add.

On a serious note: My HexCrystal has 4 unique parts:
Half Core x2
Fixed Middle Layer pieces x3
Floating middle layer pieces x3
Tips x12
for a total of 20 parts.
