Hey everyone,
I'd like to present my custom built cross cube! The original puzzle was made by Tony Fisher. I made this puzzle out of one of mf8's crazy 3x3 puzzles and 3 3x3's. The quality of the puzzle is very nice. I know that its not the examinx or multidodecahedron, but I thought that I'd share it anyways :D I really like this puzzle and its fun to solve!

Thanks for watching!

I usually don't log in, but I just had to comment on how perfect this build is. Wow! It's smooth, it cuts corners, and it's beautifully done.

I love the identical edges. I think this would be much funner to solve than an ordinary 5x5x5. Great job!

Beautiful puzzle. I really hope I can make a Cross Cube in the near future.

I don't think identical edges will make the puzzle at all more confusing, due to the fact that they can't swap places.

The fact that it has identical edge pieces means that you can't just put any of the 5x5x5 centers anywhere in the center. You have to have them in a particular place in the center. To me, that's a funner solve. It's not as trivial. I never said it was confusing. :?

The identical pieces don't make the solving much more difficult but when I solved it for the first time I kinda had to take a second look at the pieces before I paired them up. :)
