Hi everybody,

Here is the latest collaboration between Incredible and I. The Circle Floppy cube!
This version is the Maxi version, 85.5mm*85.5mm*28.5mm.

I have also made a Regular sized version, but it still needs screws and stickers.

I designed the puzzle in Alibre design, and it was FDM printed by Incredible.

Here is some pictures:

This is a really good piece of work, and I laughed real hard with the "video coming soon" considering I saw the video yesterday on Claus's channel :lol: :lol: :lol: Really smooth turning!

I love it!

You could shape-mod it into a "half turn on 4 sides" "full turn on 2 sides" puzzle!

really nicely done! looks great.

If you made a fully-functional version (like mr okamoto's one) then wouldn't it be a shape transformation of a normal 3x3x3?

And I LOVE Adman234's idea, make a cube that looks identical to a 3x3x3, but is a mixture of half-turns and quarter-turns.
