This is the first of 4 puzzles that were made in a colaboration with "the hulk of TP"
He have access to a FDM printer and I have access to a crazy brain and CAD.

As you can see so does this look just like a Jing's pyraminx, but this puzzle was in fact designed long before I or anyone else knew that the Jing's pyraminx was comming.

I had planned to make this one a while ago, but when the Jing came so did I cancel those build plans since something similar was avalible.
But when I got the opportunity to get some full prints from incredible so couldn't I resist making it. :roll:

As you can see so is it much smaller than the Jing's pyraminx. I think that this smaller design is much better and easier to handle.
Of what I have heard so did the Jing have to be so big to make it stable, but I can't really see why. Because there is no thin parts in the Mini RX and it is not possible to pop it without removing any screws.
And this one has handcut stickers, I bet Jing's don't :lol:

If you wonder were I got the name from so is it from Drew's RX which is a reuleaux master tetrahedron.
And since this is just a tetrahedron so did I name it Mini RX.

And once again, many thanks to my friend Karl-Heinz (incredible) for printing this puzzle for me.

Hi Olz,

so you made it. Nice stickers!

Since I have only printed the parts and did no assembling (nor designing) I will not count it and stay for this time with 9 of 52.
I am just a little curious to see the others, just a little...
