Hey, this is a correctly proportioned ff 3x3x5( It was my 3rd time making a ff 3x3x5. The first 2 erm... kinda failed but they worked :D ) . I made this a while ago but i did not have a chance to post it. It was made from a C4U Cubic 3x3x5 and a 3x3x2. I spent about 5 hours making the puzzle itself and another 2 to polish, fill, paint and sticker it. :lol:
Pictures speaks a thousand words so i shall talk less and let you see the pictures of my 3x3x5 :D Enjoy!!

P.S. I had recently upload some of my cube pictures at my Photobucket account. Feel free to take a look at them

Sweet. Once I get some money and time, I'm going to follow redkb's tutorial on how to make one of these.

BTW, I wonder if the same principal you used could be utilized to make a ff proportional 3x3x7.

The crack is bacially the space between the first and second layer. This mech is not the same as Jin' 3x3x5. (:

Shhhh!!!!! Hahas.... I was thinking about that when i built my 3x3x5. If I am not wrong it should be able to work as well. I am going to built a correctly proportioned 3x3x7 one of this days... :lol:

good job! I like it very much!

how did you use the 3x3x2? just the cubies or the mech part as well?
I really hope you want to share some info here, because I would very much like to build on of these myself, and I have a spare 3x3x5 and 3x3x2 :)

Looks very nice. I want to know about how you used the regular 3x3x2 as well. I have a spare crazy 3x3x2 and 3x3x5 cubic to play with =)

Again, nice job Ü

just wanted to let you know that you have inspired me to build one too :)

I have started by cutting all the mech parts off the top layer of the 3x3x5. and all the mech part off the 3x3x2 pieces as well.

I will then attach the mech parts from the 3x3x5 parts to the 3x3x2 parts. But I have not gotten to that yet.

any tips would be mighty helpful!! :)

ahahas!!! Glad to inspire someone. The 3x3x2 was only the extra cubie that is on the 1st and the 5th layer. When attaching the cubie to their respective mech parts, remember to align them properly to get a nice puzzle. Only sand what is necessary, if not your puzzle may be loose. Fill and sand the parts until they do not have the bumpy feel. If you are using paint to paint the filler, you may want to apply a coat of supergule on it and sand it. When playing with the puzzle, you may accidentally wipe off the paint so make sure you have a coat of superglue on it.
Glad i could help (:

Basically thats what i do. The supergule coating covers the paint thd preventing you from accidentally wiping them off while playing your puzzle. :D

thanks Ryan! :)

I might have taken too much off the cutted pieces.. :( I will find out later.. :(
you do mean the 5th layer pieces the you attach to become 3rd layer right? if so, then I know already that I have to put extra sheeting on there.. :(

I have finished building it, to a state where it stands fully functional! it did not came out as good as I could hope for. I am not that of an experienced builder, but I am very satisfied with it (my first mech mod)! Maybe I can improve on its mechanism and make it smoother. But right now I gotto have some sleep... :roll:

Tomorrow, what I need to do is to fill the gaps and sticker it. I need stickers, so I have to order them :)

But right now I am SO glad that I got myself a fully functional correctly proportional 3x3x5 puzzle. And that was build by myself!!!

Thank you Ryan once again for inspiring me to do this!

To everyone out there: This is a highly recommended mod! :D ALSO for the beginner modder!

BTW Ryan, could you please elaborate on the 3x3x7? right now I dont see how it could be done. I would be very pleased to know, because I have a 3x3x7 all ready to be torn apart and evoluted into what you are speaking of! I cant wait to start building again! :lol:

Ok today I have taken a second look at the internals. obviously I did rush a bit in the end to complete it. and in some places I didnt cut anough material away. Now with some more work, it turns smoothly! actually it is finger-flick-able (I hate the word finger trick!!) and I am 100% satisfied with it! now I have to wait 3 hours for the miliput to cure, so I can sand and paint in. Then I have to wait another week or two for the tiles I have ordered to arrive. oh well.. :roll:
