You really like pillowed shape right? :D Love this one. Very rare to see some mod made from a helicopter cube! Great puzzle!

So short after the Celtic Tetrahedron.
Very good!

Can you create a better name for this puzzle?
Or shall the community give some suggestions?

Very good! I considered this mod when I first made the Curvy Copter but never got around to it. Your implementation is definitely very good and much more beautiful than mine could have been.
Keep the Curvy Copter mods coming!

Your last picture show two Helicopter Cubes, one smaller than the other. Is one a custom built one?

Very impressive. This puzzle is a shallow cut Celtic Tetrahedron, so maybe Celtic Tetrahedron II, even though the names should be vice versa. Excellent puzzle nevertheless. Any chance of selling such a piece to me? :D

I love how the curvy cuts give very little clue as to how the helicoptahedron turns. Beautiful.

Perhaps you might have noticed that I have been a bit withdrawn lately, following the forum but finding nothing worthy of saying. At this point, I feel it necessary to comment on this puzzle. While I find that the pillowing is just a bit overdone, I still really want to play with and even own this puzzle. Whether or not I could do either is debatable, but I really feel that this puzzle is worthy of applause (especially considering my own minimal talent with puzzle-making). It is very shiny, looks complex, and has some nice cut patterns on the faces. :shock: :o

Is there any chance of renting this puzzle for a few days? If there is any, let me know what conditions you would accept because I would readily agree to almost anything.

I really like this puzzle!
Also I think a name like helicoptrahedron would be a cool name.
