May soon find some of my puzzles on ebay.

And at the insistence of some colleagues in my country, possibly start a website, which includes my puzzles for sale later.

The only drawback of this is that if I accumulate orders, I make them all would be impossible by hand, so I started in the molding resin, and if this goes well then I can offer my puzzles.

I hope you understand my English. :roll:

Wow... what a fantastic idea! I wish I had thought of that.

And I like your new signature. I wish more people would add their mods in their signature.

Great job!
I agree with Thomas: I wish I had this idea first!
Very neat.
By the way, Thomas, how do you add pictures of your mods into your signature then?

Of course, first host the image(s) online somewhere. And then preferably have it link to the right threads. I tried to have a link for each puzzle, but you can't use that many characters in your signature, so I simply link to a seperate webpage, where you can click on each puzzle.

This is the code in my signature:

Code:
[url=http://www.huppeldepup.com/twistypuzzles/mymods.php]

Great idea! I like it :)

I like the Octaminx-style faces and the scrambled shapes look very interesting and attractive.

I hope its ok that I post this here.

I have ideas for obvious square one transformations.

The Square 1.5 - Using only the 30 degree pieces, forming a cube.
and Square 0,5 - Using only the 60 degree pieces, forming a cube also.
cool right?

about others, is a logical sq1 to Pyrammid the greenhills tetrahedron? No, right?

then how would Icosa-1 look like? And what others needs to be made?

You're "square 1.5" was made, I believe first by DLitwin, and dubbed a "square-2" (link). Others such as flambore (link), khjs534 (link), and Bigandrewgold (link) have also made them.

You're "square 0.5" has also been proposed before, if not made, and is called a star prism (since it does not actually form a cube, but rather... well, a star prism). 2-layer and 4-layer versions have definitely been made (see here and here, for instance), but I can't seem to find a 3 layer that was actually made. All I can find is this proposal.
