Hey,

This is not a totaly new puzzle, but here it is - Star puzzle with a twist Plus.

Image

Desgined by Muffet, and available in his Shapeways shop. You can buy the Star with a twist here, and the special tips here.

The Star with a twist Plus is a combination between the original Star Puzzle by muffet and the newer version, Star puzzle with a twist. its also bigger and more stable than both version.

the puzzle turns very smooth (little tight on the tips) and in a few different ways:

Star with a twist move:

Image

Star with a twist move + tips:

Image

Middle slice move (with tips on normal state):

Image

Middle slice move (with tips on 90 degree state):

Image

Stickers are hand cut in 10 different colors - Black, Grey, Blue, Light Blue, Green, Light Green, Red, Orange, Purple and Pink.
1 color on each face (5 colors on each "big" face) with light colors on one face dark color on the opposite face. I also stickers the "side" of the tips with the opposite color, for example - Green face and Light Green "side" color and so on.

Image

Scramled (with every move possible):

PS. At first I asked Matthew (Muffet) to make a bigger and more stable version of the star with a twist, he kindly said yes and let me buy it off his shapeways shop. 10 days later, I got a package with everything inside and assambled my star with a twist. I left it on the floor and painted it with some lacquer as matthew suggested. came back after a day and the puzzle disappeared. apparently the dog took it and destoryed the tips =S. so I had to buy some new tips, which gave me an idea - why not to make the tips turn like the original star puzzle? so I asked matthew again to redesign the tips and let me buy it. got it two days ago, made the stickers and here we are =)

PS2. I exedently scambled the puzzle a little bit before taking the pictures, so the first picture which shows the color scheme is not correct, but you should be able to imagine how it should look like. 1 black sticker is missing (on the side of the tip), I will cut a new one tomorrow.

Enjoy.

Sharon

I love it! It is like a mixup-star puzzle!

So it shape-shifts then? Very cool...

Great-looking puzzle! I love the sticker pattern.

I originally misread the title as "by Meffert", and I got really excited.

Very cool. I wish the puzzle could turn on its top and bottom axis (along with its middle axis). So in other words, there would be three possible lateral/horizontal movements. Nice work though.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean? could you perhaps simply edit one of those pictures and draw in what you mean?

Ok I hope this helps. What I meant was that the puzzle would have an added challenge if it turned like a DOGIC. Think about a DOGIC when looking at this. :lol:

So if you held the puzzle flat you could turn the tip, turn the middle, and turn the whole half.

For some reason I feel like singing "Twinkle Twinkle little star"...!

Sharon, you have been adding some new elegant style to twisty puzzles.
It is not only the mechanisms, but also the general presentation. Nice one!

:)
