Hi to all,

I want to show you my first new puzzle in this forum.
I read about it in some posts but never saw one in real life

It´s completely 3d printed, based on a 3x3x3 core but only two corners left untouched.

The original Knob cube was designed by Alokin. I had printed masters of this puzzle (Dave Calzone has them now), but I don't think we ever actually built the puzzle.

Nice job in making this one happen for real.

in the video you didnt really show the puzzle functions completely. did we see the 1x2x2 too? if so I missed it.

also, I really dont know how you solved that thing. hehe thought I'd never say this, but
was that a REVERSE video? :twisted:

Hi UU :wink:
the 6 1x2x2 turn itself - but you got it right, it was not part of the video
You can see it on the picture.

If I just had it, I would show in a new video but the cube was sold last week

May be I build again one of this knob cubes - than I will show - promise!

And...regarding the reverse idea...I learned the moves by heart-it took me long long nights :lol:

Theoretically speaking, if the 1x2x2's were cut to a circle shape, and then bandage two of the cubies, this would be a button cube right?
