Hello! This is my newest puzzle, the Master Kilominx. I would like to thank Kickflip for allowing me to sell these in my shapeways shop. I'm not sure how much its going to cost but it does have a lot of pieces. It turns well but the center pieces can wobble a bit. I finally got to try out my new sticker cutter and I think it turned out well. I hope this will help fill everyone's minx collection. Enjoy!
Here is a link to the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x469EUOlul0

Another fantastic puzzle. The turning is great and the stickers certainly look attractive as well. Great job.

SO, when you create an amazing puzzle like this, do you create the core also from shapeways, or do you use one from another puzzle?

A readily available Master Kilominx! :)

I hope this one gets mass-produced eventually :D

Just because he's new on this forum doesn't mean he's new to designing puzzles.

It is quite attractive, and also at a comfortable size! I can't wait to see this made available to the public- not that I'd be able to afford it, anyhow.

Amazing! This one will be an instant success on Shapeways, and hopefully I can contribute to its success. :)

Excellent puzzle. How many prototypes did you make, or did you get it right first time? :wink:

Nice as this puzzle seems, i still think i'd rather purchase the void/holey gigaminx. Solves exactly the same way. And i assume it should also turn better? Has anyome here tried both??

for me it its mostly about the looks. And as it seems to run so smoothly (the wiggling pieces is no problem at all) this is an intant "add" to my list. That does not run out the possibility that I will get a void gigaminx as well.

Awesome. I was hoping someone would make a "proper" version of this puzzle and you have. Good size, too!

Great job,

Dave

I know this is said about basically EVERY puzzle presented in New Puzzles, but I really hope this gets mass produced. The dodeca-minx series must be completed!
We also need a 6th order minx, correct?
