It's a 2 layer Square-1.

I don't see how it wouldn't be possible.

This can be easily done by making a 2 layer puck, truncating and bandaging.

It´s like a normal square-1, but the middle layer has been changed into the round thing he got from a super square-1. Just leave the idea of a floppy square-1 for me :lol: .

I used the img button and put the picture source in the middle. It shows up on my computer. Why have so many people not been able to see my pictures lately? Am I doing something wrong?

Lets hope it is someone else Georges.

My original question ws about the internal mechanism. I have one taken apart (4 layer) and I can't work out how he did a two. It doesn't look like just cutting it in half would work.

If it's this:

He actually built it up from a 4 layer square1.

Juanan made some pictures about the structure and you could see there is two pairs of rails screwed on the axis. Just put off one of them and cut the axis. Alexandre (who built it up) told here he couldn't add any spring because of space.

Just started building it myself. I should be done in a few weeks if it doesn't fail miserably.

Making a shape mod is more work than this. Much like the 2-4 layer puck, this is a mod that requires minimal work for maximum results.

Isn't there only one screw inside? Then, my question was how to hold it together? I know this sounds stupid to all of you, I'm just trying to understand so please don't laugh at me.

I actually don't understand how it was made in your pictures, so I'm making it a different way (I can tell by seeing some of the insides in your pics). What I'm doing is basically just cutting of the top and bottom of the core and then reattaching the center pieces back on.

So if I were to cut off the top section and the bottom section of the core I could make this?

well, it is a little more complex than that. I will try to get some photos of what I'm attempting to do in the morning.

I've just taken apart a super square 1 and I realize now that the center can't be cut. It would have to be molded wouldn't it?

Why can't it be cut? :? There's no need to mold it.

The center coreis one solid piece that is too long. If I cut it, I wouldn't have the rounded half-circles on both sides. That's why I think it would have to be molded. Just cutting it would give me two halves, but one side would have a "hole"

Have you tried cutting the middle of the axis and paste both new parts together?

That's what I think is the solution and what did alexandre.

You can take off the rounded half-circles. They're just screwed on there.

I don't mean hte inside half circles, I mean the end pieces you see on the outside when the puzzle is complete. I think these are the ones that would need to be cut. I guess I really need to see a picture to understand what you mean.

For those I plan on cutting them off, sanding them down, and then glueing them back on top.

Ok, I kinda get it, but I'll still probably need to buy a square-1 myself to fully understand what you guys are getting at.

so, I'd need a super square-1 to build the 2 layer square 1? Isn't a super square-1 just a mod off of a normal square-1 anyway?
