Hey all,

This isn't really new, I know, but following my half-void puzzle in december 2010, someone asked me to make a shapeways version.

There isn't much to be said here since this isn't a new concept, but here are some pictures and link I think you'll like :)

It does look much cleaner than the hand mod though !

Buy on shapeways for 80$ (DIY kit)

Video

Enjoy =)

Greg

I've already seen it at DCD 2011.
It is really a nice concept!

Just one suggestion: Maybe you should add a "background cover" what hides the structure.
I like puzzles what I can't tell how they work at first look. Like the floppy cube was before mass produce, or the Void cube was, when it came out.

Ooh, I have an idea!

Make it so that the void in the middle can be filled by a 2x2x2. It could be somehow geared to turn along with the puzzle (think Oh Cube or that carousel cuboid thing cut-wise) or it could just fit in there by a string.

"Hey, I made this complete Rubik's Cube!"
"I thought you were making more complica-"
"NOPE! Chuck Testa"

I think that's impossible due to the decepticuts drilling through the whole void cube mech :P

Then, maybe just a detachable 2x2x2 to the same scale. :)

I could make extensions to an eastsheen 2x2 to have it 40mm long so that you put it in the half cube and it looks like a regular 3x3 :P

I could but it would stick out in mid turn (as it wouldn't turn with the turned face)
