This my Hex Prism 2. It was built from 1 Cube4You brand 3x3x3, and capped with 1 mm plastic sheet. Stickered with hand-cut stickers from the vinyl sheets from cubesmith (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, and pink).

This is my second favorite puzzle from the Puzzlemaster collection. I'm just going down the list now. :D

1. Reuleaux Mastermorphix (Got it!)
2. Hex Prism 2 (Built it!)
3. Hex Prism 1 (In progress!)
4. Axis Cube
5. Triangular Prism

Anyway, here are some pics. :D Also, VIDEO

How do you actually build those Hexagonal Prisms?

That's kind of a broad question, what exactly do you want to know?

If its not too much of a bother, can you lable a picture with the corresponding parts on a 3x3x3? I think I have a vague idea of how its made, but I'm not really sure. Anyway, the puzzle itself is uber awesome, how you can possibly make that, I do not understand. I'm sure that if you make, like, 10 and sell them for 200$ each you'd make 2000$ in no time!

That puzzle looks very good, the stickers are great (I've got Cubesmith vinyl sheets coming for my first mod :?, it probably won't look as good as yours) :lol: . I too would like to know how to make this (basically where to cut) as I have a list of mods I want to do but this thing looks great.

Very good mod! :D

Alex

btw, Monopoly, you probably couldn't sell them all for a high price as the price depends on the rarity of the puzzle, if there are 10 floating around on eBay people will pay less. Nice try though :lol:. You could probably do that with cheaper custom puzzles though.

To tell you the truth, if you can't figure out how to make it/how its made independently then you will probably fail in making your own.

Cubicle, I started my first mod (3x3x3 HD) yesterday. It might not be the best mod ever but it's worked out okay and I didn't know how to make that until I watched kickflip1993's tutorial (it was on a 4x4x4 but I applied that to a 3x3x3).

Btw, I could not sell these for $200, as Calzone is already selling them for $125. :wink:

Looks excellent! The geometry is very precise and the stickers look perfect.
