I am now proud to present my 2x2x10 cuboid. This puzzle was a very difficult build for me that required patience and innovation. I have been correcting problems on this puzzle for the past month or two. I originally planned for this puzzle to be a 2x2x12, but I couldn't get the outer layer to function. After many attempts of sanding and stabilizing, I knew the puzzle was not going to work. I then cam up with the brilliant plan to mod it into a 2x2x10, making the corner thicker. This mod worked, so then I used rit dye to make it black. The reason I did this was because a lot of the corner is made up of milliput and smoothcast which were different shapes than the WSF material. Stickers were custom cut by Mindstormscreator, and it was built into proportion of a 3x3.

Hope you enjoy!!!! :)

Wow, great puzzle! I've been waiting for the topic since I saw the video on Youtube. May I ask, how are the outside layers stabilized? No stabilization? Olz method? Grooves?

Haha! NO Sharon! You beat me to it xDDD. I was about to post something similar and as I klicked on reply it updated and your comment was there already.
Yeah the last pic is really funny. But I was wondering if it is supposed to be ambiguous. :lol:

Nice Cuboid anyway! It looks stable too because otherwise it would bend more when held horizontally along the long axis.

anyways onto the puzzle I really like 2x2 cuboids. I believe the first cuboid I ever saw was Tony Fisher's 2x2x7 and I was just amazed at how it could even work.

Wow, it looks like it would fall right apart, but it still turns very well! I was really looking forward to this

The turning is very nice for a puzzle of this size.
