Amazing, my heart sort of fluttered. I don't know what to say other than I want to build a dozen or so.

Wow, what a way to think outside the cube (hah hah)! Those look absolutely stunning. It's that kind if ingenuity that births some of the greatest new puzzles. Great job!

The cuboids look great.

Is it possible to glue stretchy plastic on the centers? Or maybe a hinge system (with regular plastic)?

With the hinge system I have no skills. This question has to be answered by Olz. With fexible plastic/vinyl I have made some tests. But on the pictures (9) and (10) you can see in the rounded corners that there wil be an extremly strain. It works but I am not pleased.

du er fantastisk! jeg ser virkelig frem til dine næste puzzles!
men de her nye er jo fuldstendig episke. der er ingen vej tilbage!! hvad kan det næste blive.
hvis jeg var dig ville jeg lave andre puzzles (special design) før du laver de næste cuboids.
hvis du kommer til danmark bliver vi måske nødt til at mødes så jeg kan prøve dem :)

sorry for writing in danish. I just felt that I could express better that way.

I think you solution is absolute genius! Mostly because it seems so obvious after I saw it.

It is actually the same way that the floppy cube works under the center cap.

I have been on vacation for a week, so this is the first time I'm seeing these puzzles. Absolutely fantastic! Hopefully we'll see more of your creations brought to life in the future!

Is it just me, or do the centers and inner centers looked raised?

I see what you mean, but they aren't. This is really a nice piece of work. So SO simple, but I couldn't come up with it. Great work on these!

may I be the first to say: "pillow them!!"
if you do you can achive cubic pieces, right? normally I am not the biggest fan of pillowing everything, but with these new puzzles I think it would suit it perfectly!

what do you think?

I think you are missing the whole point og the design. It is made so you don't have to pillow it.

well yes. but I thought it would be nice for estetics.
question: would pilloing get rid of the circular cuts? and make the cubies square?

ok I really dont wanna tumble more around in this but,
I really adore how the V7 looks. if you could get anything near that in look (on top and bottom faces), then I think it would look even more stunning. proportional or not.

either way you managed to come up with such an incredible idea. I feel once again that there's no turning back. like when the first gigaminxes came. home 3D designing has made so much possible for puzzles huh? :)

if I had one wish then I'd ask for a bigger market for puzzles in general, so all of these marbles people come up with could reach more people (serial production worthy).

BUMP

Could you make the cubies proportional by making it pillowed? I'm just wondering
