As you might have heard earlier, doubleyou posted his idea of a cube with corners connected to a cage with ropes on the forum (I believe he treied it with a 2x2). But right before he posted it (minutes at most) I had posted a 2x2 version too on shapeways!! To be brief, we both have rights for this puzzle, and so I decided to make a 3x3, I'll leave the 4x4 to him
The 3x3 has all the corners conneced to the cage's corners with strings. As you can see from the pictures, the ropes are damaged, but lets say I was so mad at not being able to solve the puzzle that i wasn't really careful with them
. Anyways, the strings are quite short: why? Simple:
With short strings, tangling up the puzzle is easy enough, and still, some moves are blocked if you tangle too much, so it gets very hard !! You might think it would've been better if I had longer strings on the corners, because then, there would be moore knots, etc.
So basically, here I'm showing a puzzle with short roped on the video, but it doesn't have to be that way.
I plan on selling this puzzle and so I found a solution:
In the Package, I will include a disassembled puzzle and a disassembled cage (it's very easy to assemble the cage
) and with it, I included three paper envelopes (see picture) in which there are:
1) Long ropes
2) Short ropes)
3) 2 meters of extra rope in case you break a string or if it is damaged
The turning quality is very good, but you can easily get on your nerves, because it is really hard to solve (I personally couldn't, although I tought myself methods for the square-1 and teraminx without the internet). The 3x3 in the middle is a DianSheng speedcube. 3 Stickers have been damaged in the making of this puzzle, but I had no more 3x3 stickers so I couldn't repair them
*** No I'm not selling it because I don't like it resisting to me
Well, enough said!
Enjoy the picture and of course, the Video!!
P.S: Woah, that was my longest post by far! ^^
