Another of Alokin's cool designs. This one is the Cylinder 3x3. A couple of people said this was an easy mod and wasn't worth printing and casting. In a way, yea, it's an easy mod, but this one is an unusual size. See the photos for size comparison with a regular 3x3. You would need a considerable build-out to make this.

Anyway, I had fun with the stickers. I love my vinyl cutter. :)

Oh, and yea, this one is definitely a shape shifter. I posted some pics of it scrambled. Quite a cool puzzle. Nice job on the design, Nikola. :)

Wow Flambore, you are turning these out beautifully. The wavey stickers look fantastic! What a nice touch. Nice puzzle.

I WILL need to invest in a vinyl cutter some time!

It's fantastic. The extra effort in the stickering makes it my favorite cylinder I've ever seen :)

So simple, yet so perfectly done; this is definitely one of my favorites, especially the sticker pattern.

If you keep making such great puzzles, I'm going to have to go find a new job that pays better

Insomnia put to good use. :)

Actually, I've just been finishing these up at a good clip. I've been sitting on these STL files for a long time. It's just been recently, since I sold a few puzzles that I've been able to actually make them. It takes a tremendous amount of oomoo and resin to make all these puzzles, so unfortunately I have to sell puzzles to get the money to make more. I still have a few sets of STL files I haven't had printed yet, and a few other puzzles I have the masters for that I haven't made yet.

Stay tuned in the next few days for a really cool one. Possibly one of my top 3 favorites.

Thanks for the compliments, guys.

I LOVE the curvy sticker edge! The scrambled pics reminded me a little bit of a scrambled Fisher cube.

Great puzzle, I can't wait to see what's in store... :D :D :D

I like the wide proportions of the puzzle.

Nice stickering idea too - the wavy line reminds me of the Godsend symbol from Heroes.

Great, simple mod that proves that any custom, no matter how unoriginal or basic, can be made amazimg with just a little more effort and execution.

Perfect :)

very apealing size, AMAZING stickers, great choice of plastic color, great everything! I cannot imagine a 3x3 cylinder looking possibly any better than this, I agree that a nice sticker job, just the few final touches on a puzzle make all the difference. I'll keep that in mind! :lol:

I looked up Flambore on wikipedia (no I didn't) and it said "Puzzle building machine" (but that's what it should say).

I have been waiting to see a Cylinder 3x3x3 be casted. You do fantastic work, Flambore! I love the curved stickers.

A good stickering like that can turn any puzzle from great to amazing. Good job. I really like the stickering.

REALLY clean build, everything is nice and rounded off and it all matches up. I really love how even during a pattern, the curves on the stickers still match up. :D
