Hi everyone,

Just finished up this puzzle. I call it the Penta-1. The puzzle was made from a mf8 Square-1. The pieces were capped with ABS plastic sheet and the gaps between the extensions were filled with black Apoxie Sculpt. Stickers were machine cut using Oracal and Arlon Graphics Vinyl.

The puzzle was first cut on an angle on the top and bottom face and then built back up into a cube and then cut into the final shape. I will explain more in the video and I will post it here when it has finished uploading. Hope you enjoy.

Sidenote:

I haven't been able to get on the forum for awhile and haven't been able to leave comments on some of the great puzzles have been made. Well done everyone amazing work. :D

I love it. The 'angle' is very clever.

I missed it at first, and then just found myself saying: "Hey, something isn't right here, that looks off center...".

Great work!

I have to say, the Square-1 mods are my fav. of all the mods on this site. I dont know how to solve them, but they always intrigue me as being an amazing puzzle. Kudos apollo on this puzzle, I hope to see more square one puzzles from you.

Cool.

If it is only one color, it would be a harder challenge to solve.

Thank-you for the kind words everyone. I had alot of fun building this one. I was thinking about making this puzzle all one sticker color (white) but I didn't have enough vinyl left so i went with 6 colors instead.

Probably won't see any Square-1 mods for a little bit but I have two Square-2's coming in the mail so they will be made into 2 new mods. :D :wink:

I will be making a post soon in the Marketplace for this puzzle for anyone who is interested since I have received several messages about selling this puzzle.

Here is the link for the video for anyone who would like to check it out. Thanks again everyone.
