Hey Twisty Puzzlers!

I'd like to announce that my Twisted Cubes are now available on my Shapeways Shop!

Type 1 ($90) looks like a 3x3 on top.
Type 2 ($90) looks like a Fisher Cube on top.

You can save $10 by buying them together! (Discount only applies if you order the model entitled "Twisted Cubes - Both", not if you order "Type 1" and "Type 2")

To order, buy it from my Shapeways shop, and then be sure to send an email to eitanspuzzleshop @ gmail . com (remove the spaces) with your order number and which type you ordered, since I have to intervene and send them the correct files.

You can get stickers through Dr. Sticker for $6.70 for one puzzle, and $4.00 for every additional puzzle. Just email him at dr-sticker @ gmail . com (remove the spaces) and tell him what colors you want on which faces. Be sure to tell him which type of Twisted Cube stickers you want!

Each puzzle needs 6 M3 screws at least 10mm long.

Here is a video and some pictures.

This is the smartest 3x3x3 shape mod since the Fisher Cube.

At least, I assume it's a shape mod. After using this forum and owning a Skewb, Occam's Razor is becoming quite dull for me in terms of geometry...

From looking at it, I could easily say that they ARE proportional.

This puzzle is actually a Rubik's Cube and Fisher Cube during the reproduction process. If you feed it Lubix every day, you'll eventually find a perfectly normal 3x3x3 and Fisher Cube sitting on your desk, with a slightly smaller Mixup 3x3x3 next to them.

Ah, the cycle of life.

I think RubixFreakGreg means that the center piece in top and bottom faces is smaller than the others

Anyway it looks great!

I think that they will each cost around $100. Perhaps I'll offer a little discount for getting both at the same time.

I have emailed a sticker layout to Dr. Sticker. As soon as I get a PDF of the layout, and confirm it fits, I'll open this up for sale.

They are now available for $90 each. There is a $10 discount if you buy both. I have updated the top post with links.
