Hello everyone:
Here is my new puzzle, I made it from LanLan's Skweeb. I use similar methods with 3X3 Rhombodron, cut and paste.
but the size made it larger than many imagined.
it work well, and ball positioning feel good.
Hope you like it!
Thank you,

A J

Yes, because the Guangdong Open 2010 (October 3--4 ) have a handmade puzzles exhibition, I will put the puzzle on display. And then I will sell it :lol:

I love this puzzle, and all those skewb made mods!!!

And no offense but I laughed so hard when I read Skweeb because it sounds so much better than skewb :mrgreen: :lol: :lol:

Why use an octahedron for this one? I vote laziness, and I bet andreas can confirm that :P

They were referring to Andreas's attempt.

Very clean mod. Great job :D

After watching the video, that puzzle is even cooler then before. I love how on one axis it doesn't shape shift. Please contact Uwe and see if there's any chance in the future that this will be mass produced. :)

Beautiful puzzle! I agree that this needs to be mass produced. It has the same aura as Tony Fisher's mental block.
