I made a 7x7x5 by sanding down a V-cube. I think it is not possible to make the cuts deeper without destroying the mechanism?

You can see the differences to the OLZ design.

I think it would look better if you filled the gaps between the 5th layers and the 7th layers

Nope, nothing special, just another 7x7x5. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously though, It looks awesome! When I clicked this thread, I figured you'd just cast one for olz. Although maybe you should fill those... "babyfaced" layers.

Never would have thought of doing that. Did you actually glue the top two and bottom two 'layers' to prevent movement? I would be tempted to make one where I did to make a true 5x7x7 plus one where I didn't to have a very nice 7x7x7 variation.
Great stuff.

Thanks a lot to all for your remarks.

To have the best movements and smooth turns I have only glued the corners of the top two and bottom two layers (not the edges).

At V2 I will fill the gaps between the both outer layers.

I like this way better, imo, it looks smother and less fragile.

Yes, but since it isn't pillowed like the 7x7, I don't think it would look very good. You could also make a 5x5x3 and a 4x4x2 this way.

I personally think that this one looks more visually appealing. (No offence Olz, just personal preference) I assume that this one changes shape? And just to bug you: Scrambled pics? :twisted:

wow... it's weird how just sanding down a puzzle can be as good looking or better than a CAD designed puzzle...

how easy was this to make by the way?
If I was interested, as a novice puzzle modifier, would it be reasonable enough for me to be able to cut down one of these to look close to as good as this without ruining multiple 7x7x7s?

Here is a video (two month old) I have made for the 6x6x4.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Gtz1HStGUo-

I will finished it at weekend and will show pictures on Sunday.

elijah: I think it is not to difficult to make cuts and sandings. It is much more difficult to make extensions (for me).
You have to look inside the cubes (to know how deep you can cut) and now: good luck!!

you know this is what I suggested when I first saw one OLZ cube. to pillow it and make more square like pieces and more stabil.
now you finally done it, how is it?

DoubleYou: This is a little bit different:

Olz designed really cubic puzzles with non cubic pieces, Tony is on the best way to build really cubic cubes with cubic pieces.

And here the ones are not cubic, sometimes pillowed with not cubic pieces. This is the badest solution for looking but the best way for excellent movements.

Shame there's no official 9x9x9 any time soon. Would love to see you do a 9x9x7.

but the picture resembles EXACTLY what I had in mind back when I suggested it. I think you nailed it.
