Actually I think it's a 5x5x2- you can see two pieces on the left side of the olzed pieces. Also the pieces are pillowed into a 2-layer shape.

I'd say a Pillowed 5x5x2 to be more exact.

A little more information about the puzzle, it is completely 3-D printed using shapeways WS&F material and painted black rather than dyed. This is my fifth revision of this puzzle, however only one and a quarter puzzles were actually printed. (instead of ordering an entire new puzzle I only reordered the fixed problem parts.) This is what I believe to be the third version of this puzzle shown on these forums?

More technical: this puzzle was actually designed with no tolerance at all except for the center caps. When I first assembled the puzzle it literally did not move whatsoever. However after spraying the puzzle with CRC silicon spray (for all the people asking what works on SLS puzzles the packaging clearly states that it can be used on nylon) and the puzzle now turns like a dreaaammm :mrgreen:

I do plan on selling the puzzle as this was really only a proof of concept, I really wanted to hold one of my own designs in my hand, I have had that pleasure. I cannot solve the puzzle, so I will pass it on to someone who can truly enjoy it. :)

I should hopefully have more pictures and a video later today to show you all and It will be offered up to the forum at a fixed price this weekend. If no one is interested the puzzle will then go for sale on eBay.

Thanks
Matthew

It indeed is a 2x5x5. The bad news is I will not have photos or a video up until tomorrow and it might take longer than that. I can say it is a great puzzle and I am very happy with it. I will not be offering it as kits through shapeways but i may start a waiting list in the near future.

Sorry to dissappoint you guys, I wish it was a circle gigaminx too :wink:

That looks very nice. I love the pillowed look to it.

Looks really, really great. Muffet! Man, I love cuboids. I wish I could own a copy of every single one of them.

Thanks for the comments guys. I myself am not a fan of cuboids either, I find them hard to solve and they make me angry :lol: . I have since scramble this one and I have no idea how to fix it.However this puzzle is still really fun to play with, it is almost fingertrickable, I think the reason i cant is because of the odd shape of it. I am awaiting machine cut stickers and then this one will probably go up for sale.
