This is my latest puzzle, the Celtic Tetrahedron. It is a tetrahedron with the same cut pattern as the Celtic Cube. It is a shape mod of a FTRD. I cut the stickers myself with my new vinyl cutter. It turns great and I think it looks pretty cool.
Here is a link to the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afYs0U9aB-w

In case you're not aware of the legal situation, it's illegal for you to sell this on eBay; instead it must be sold via Shapeways so that everyone can own that masterpiece.

Beautiful! I've been waiting to see some more tetrahedron puzzles, and this one is astonishing. By any chance could you produce one with flat sides?

Great puzzle, great name! I love how you even get the kite shapes just like on the Celtic Cube.

You really are churning these things out, now, aren't you?

A great puzzle, beautifully built. How long did it take you to design it (I assume you used Solidworks)?

Well I made several mistakes that required a full re design. If I were to make a puzzle like this now it would probably only take about 2 hours (that's just a guess) since its a simple puzzle.

Yea, to be honest I didn't know it would look like this when I was designing it. :lol: And this last order had the master kilominx and the Celtic tetrahedron so that is why they came out so close together. I only have about 2 more puzzles that are ready to be made so after that I will have to design some more. :)

I don't think that would work very well because the pieces with the long skinny stickers would be less visible (maybe completely invisible) and also it would quite a bit larger and therefore more expensive. Also since its is my most affordable puzzle so far I may sell it on shapeways.

Very well made.
Can you post one image showing the puzzle after a single 180°-twist?
Can you tell us its weight and diameter?

Its weight is 2 5/8 Oz and its height is kind of random since the puzzle is pillowed. It has a height of about 3.5 inches or 89.3 mm.
As for the picture.... well its kind of scrambled now so ill get that to you a bit later. I have no idea how to solve it...
