I finally finished stickering this thing at 5AM last night (this morning?). It took FOREVER.

Here are photos of the FINAL product! I couldn't be happier with the outcome.

Any suggestions on a name?

Wow! I didn't realize how massive your Square Pyramid was. It turned out great. You did an awesome job stickering!

Very, very nice!
That's what I say if I see a cube transformed into another shape.
I love those transformations.

This is made from a 3x3 core right? By the way, love the pics.

It really does look excellent, love the shape. Nice job on the stickers especially considering the large size of some of them!

I bought the standard 6 color vinyl sheets from cubesmith and measured and cut all the stickers by hand. It was arduous work-- took about 6 hours.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, I think for my next mod I will make a 3x3x3 ball. I don't know why but I've always wanted one of those.

As for the name I like the technical naming of puzzles (Trajber's octahedron, Fisher's Hexagonal Prism, Fisher's Truncated Octahedron) so I suppose I'll just stick to Paul's Square Pyramid.

Okay this is my first post(Finaly :lol: ) I like this design! Thought it wasn't until I saw the second picture(Okay so when I stopped gawking at the first) That I noticed one layer is a fisher style, thoug ramped. I suggest You keep the Square Pyramid, but Use you last name Instead of your first. (Unless you last name doesn't look good on paper)

Okay, name aside, this puzzle is awesome! I might even try to replicate tis some day. And all off that sticker cutting was done well. It is unique, fun-looking, and Functional. Good job.

P.S. It is a Bump puzzle, so Bump Pyramid makes sense.

That is gorgeous! Fantastic work!

I'd call it "The Giza" or something like that. "Paul's Square Pyramid" seems too long, but I'd flaunt it if I built it too. :lol:

I can't get over those great patterns...awesome!
