awesome job! I absolutely love it (now if only they would mass-produce "normal" crazy 3x3's =P)

The comercially available Void Cube is held together by the face centers. In that puzzle they rotate relative to each other so they are 6 seperate pieces. Here I'm curious, since the face centers never rotate are they all one connected piece? Not sure if the mech of this puzzle has been shown before but I'm curious to see it.

Great puzzle,
Carl

Simply brilliant, amazing job! It's a bit stiff but I guess we can now leave this out of the "impossible puzzles" thread. I would expect this level of genius/madness only from Oskar! :D

I guess it's not a standard 6-arm core, but I can't be sure. :D

I figure it'd be similar to the holey megaminx mech.

I think if you take a close look at the second to last picture it may become apparent what is done. I've been waiting for someone to come up with this puzzle for a long time. Finally it's come alive.

On the picture 5 if you look carefully you see the edge piece is made of 3 pieces, like a normal circle cube. But the middle one is very tin. If i am right the 12 edges are attached to the mech, and after commes the corners. If i am right it's sommething like that, but not sure :? .

the Chinese MOD: ipod cube - by Asnoopy
http://bbs.mf8-china.com/viewthread.php?tid=45713

The main differences between my puzzle:
1. edge length of 55 mm - standard size
2. all cubes the same 18.2 mm
3. have your puzzles rotated ring and is visible to the inner tube - my no
4. your rings rotate independently of the other parts - my linked with the central axis
5. my full 3d-print parts

For some reason in Europe, no one knew about it ...

You can see the video, it works, but it turns bad. There is another shortcoming - swing the angles, and if to pull the corner, he will take off :(

I found ways how to fix it, may soon be a new attempt and I'll show you v3
