This hexagonal prism has 5 layers in every direction and the turning is great. I cut the stickers with my vinyl cutter and my brother helped me apply the stickers. The puzzle would have been released sooner but I have been busy and some parts were missing in the original file.
Here is a link to the Video.

NICE!!!! And I'm not just talking about the puzzle. After seeing the video and hearing this will be on eBay and then shapeways its nice to see someone else that feels as I do.

Keep up the great work,
Carl

Very nice addition to the Professor's Hexagonal Prism.

Can you add some larger images?
500*378 is a bit small for the museum.

Awesome puzzle Ryan! I'm glad that this one will be on Shapeways, it certainly looks like it could be the highlight of my collection! Out of curiosity, is there a mechanical reason as to why the outer layer on the rectangular faces are winder than the inner ones (I'm probably being very stupid here)?

Thanks for all the compliments! Luke, the reason I made the outer layer a bit wider is so I could make the corner stocks larger and less fragile. The v-cube 6 has slightly wider outer layers and I'm guessing its to make the corner stocks wider. As for the pictures I will upload some larger ones soon. (hopefully tomorrow) :)
