I hope it isn't to late for a nomination to puzzle of the year?? :roll:
it's 6.5h left here in sweden at least.

For those of you that doesn't remember do did a guy ask me to design ia combination of a 2x2 and a lattice cube a while ago.
I made the design and he built it,
but he coudln't make it turn and blamed it on me.

But I was so sure on the design that I bought the masters from him to make one for my self,
and here is the resault :D

all stickers are handcut

I can't think of a proper word to describe it, so... it's fantasmically-flabbergastingly-superbuler!

Well done, nice to see it worked out in the end. What was the problem with the other guys?

I believe this has a great shot at puzzle of the year.

Edit: What are those metal balls in the corners for?

I do believe those are screws holding the corner in.

Wow! I love all these puzzle combo's coming out recently! Sometime this week I'll be posting my own version of one of those combo's, but unfortunately it's a dud.

I can't wait to see a video!

probably to long screws on the 3x3,
they locks the rest of the puzzle if they stick up.

Is is more squishy than the super-x? I know that puzzle looks very squishy in the video.
I think you should redo the design and take drews approach if the turning is bad.
That is: put some magnets under the 2x2 and under the lattice pieces just strong enough to keep them alligned.

I have skethced this up just for the looks, once. But I imagined the cuts to go thru the edges actually. No idea of mech :)

wouldnt this puzzle work (be hard) if the 2x2x2 function wasnt there? Cus I really love the looks of this puzzle

This is one of your best, Olz. I would never had expected this to come around, with so few Lattice Cubes/ Master Dinos in existence to begin with. :D

oh man, I don't want to be a jerk, but that is TRULY horrible turning... it looks actually worse than the 7x7x5.
I did get a quick out of the ending though when you tried to put it on the stand.

Really though, I think, some magnets, the way drew used them in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuiYN4FiWRs
may just solve the problem.
Plus, maybe some tightening of the screws. :D
I think this puzzle has alot of potential with a little tuning.

I know it turns like crap,
but the 7x7x5 is worse..

I allso think I have found out why it turns like crap,
I missed a piece when designing it, a piece on the inside that will keep the pieces in place.
I will make that piece and see if it works or not.

otherwise so will you see a v2 in the future :D

It does seem that the turning is horrible. but that because the mechanism for the super X alone is prone to many directions of motion. the Lattice x is by nature even more unstable. however your execution in design is very well done!

The lattice X I designed back in July uses lots of magnets to help stabilize everything, unfortunately I felt that even then the puzzle would be so unstable I chose not to produce it.

I think you could also do a good job of closing up the gaps between the parts before filleting.
