Even though the extra pieces are not colored and this puzzle only has two Super Edges!, it is extremely addicting :lol: The final 12 edge set will be for sale on Shapeways soon.

Fantastic! Could you make it for either ES or Mefferts?

I see that there is a hidden open face on all those pieces so that they are hollow. Does this cause it to lock up on itself sometimes?

It causes it to be cheaper :lol: For the second and final versions, they will be filled and everything will be beyond perfect.

It does however lock up sometimes when rotating the 4x4x4 across the edges.

I hope v2 meets my strict standards of being "Beyond Belief". Also even though I would love for everyone to buy ten copies of this :mrgreen: , I am working on many variations of this concept. One is for the summer puzzle building contest :twisted:

I really want to see one for a Mini QJ. Therefore the cube can easily be bought if need be and is quite affordable.

Hopefully soon!
Do you have any links to its dimensions or pictures of the edges? I don't own one :(

Also, V2 should arrive in a few days. I plan on selling 4 edge sets and 8 edge sets. The reason is, I don't trust the edges being strong enough to be the last pieces popped in on a rubik's 4x4x4. If you really want a full set, you can allways order one 4 edge set and one 8 edge set.

Each edge cubie is 1.5cm, so the total edge size needs to be 3cm.
