Good day!!! I would like to share this puzzle mod... It is a 3x3, and transformed to a hexagonal prism and sanding the faces and make it to a cylinder shape and it is quite simple. Does any body made something like this before? :)

Very cool. I love it's simplicity. I love how different symmetry groups can produce similar but very different puzzles (like this compared to a normal 3x3x3 Cylinder).

Looks nice but the images look blurry.
Did you use macro mode?

I just used a mobile to take a picture. Maybe, I will take a new pic for this.
Anyway, what should I call this one? :)

Hex, good work.

But the design is not new.

Puzzlemaster42 offered stl-files for this in 2008.
Look here: http://twistypuzzles.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=10361&start=0

I made my own one by hand and smooth300 in 2009.

It is called 3x3x3 cylinder.

If you make the cuts on the top and bottom a little bit deeper you will get the same center pieces.
