Lotus I V2
This is printed for a member of the TP forum. The original Lotus I design had three flaws, which lead to a horrible puzzle. I have now fixed these problems.

If you are interested in the puzzle, I urge you to consider buying this from Shapeways. This puzzle, unlike most, comes with both a custom stand designed specifically and only for this puzzle / other rhombihedrons and also has a stencil for cutting the stickers. This means that you don't have to have your stickers machine cut to fit this unique puzzle.

For those who don't have Youtube, I have snagged a few screen shots.

Why does Shapeways say that you can't print the puzzle?

This new one looks a lot better. :D

Well, the reason I didn't have it printable is that the first design had an error. I redesigned my 3 flaws and updated the model (twice). I just had forgotten to swich it to purchaseable. It has been fixed.
Thanks,
Tanner Frisby
