Hello,

I would like to present my new puzzle - Closed Path Cube.
The idea was inspired by Barcode Burr, 3D-interlocking puzzle presented on IPP 24, but my cube is 3x3x3 Rubik's cube with a little bit different pattern - closed green path through the cube. Enjoy!

Best regards,
Vladimir Yaroslavskiy

I counted types of cubes:

centers: 3 + 3 = 2 types
edges: 5 + 3 + 3 + 1 = 4 types
corners: 3 + 4 + 1 = 3 types

This looks very nice! Did you cut the stickers by hand? If so, very well done!

Green stickers are cut by hand,
black lines are cut by plotter (thanks to my friend).
