Ok - I know: I used the word "HIGHLIGHT" very often in the last weeks.

But this is my highlight until today.

Greg's beautiful design allowed to present the Worlds First FF 3x3x11 cuboid.
Thank you very much to Greg.

As many people like to say: 'The longer the better'
I'm glad it works well, but I have to say, it does seem a bit less stable than the domino core-based 3x3xn with n=2k k∈ℕ

I'm really glad you like it ! Thanks again for making a really nice topic !

The word "excessive" comes to my mind.

You're on a roll Greg! YeeeeHaa! :)
I must say that I love the fact that it is proportional.
Are there any restrictions to this design?

Impressive, I wonder how far it's possible to go with the 3x3xN.

all the way to 3x 3x infinity! There is no limit as long as the materials hold up, and it doesn't get so ridiculous that you have to worry about the weight of the thing.

I believe my limit on the 3x3xN is 3x3x17 or something close, and my limit on the 2x3xN is 2x3x21

Very impressive puzzle. I would like to see this mechanism go to extremes like 3x3x17s. :)
