Ok here it is. Maybe I wasn't very clear on this point, but I never said that these pieces were the whole puzzle.

Here is my Confusion Pyramid.

updated video

And Andreas I will get back to you on edge length, and I still don't have a scale, I know, I am a horrible person.

Wow didn't realize how bad of turning the first video had. Iwill be posting a new video tomorrow. It moves much better now.

I remember this. Still don't know what it is, though. Possible a rhombic dodecahedron or squished/stretched cube.

This puzzle is a pyramidal transformation of a master skewb with 4 of the eight corners hidden.

KiloMasterPyraminx is a mouthful. Confusion Pyramid is better.

Nice Job! :D It reminds me in a lot of ways as a tetrahedral version of the mosaic cube, with regards to the way the angular pieces rotate against one another.

This is exactly how I felt when I first held it, but not when I designed it.

this could be another comparison like the oh cube.

This is what I origionally thought, however I believe this puzzle is only order three, just as the master skewb puzzle is order three? correct?

As a side note this puzzle came into being because I was trying to design a Rexamorphix, a beautiful puzzle by traiphum.

I suggested the name because of the ever going on discussion of what a 4x4x4 Megaminx looks like. If that even is a name etc etc. In my head the 4x4x4 Megaminx is the Master Kilominx. Which I think this is a tetrahedron equivalent to.

Putting pyramid into the name is incorrect.

I would call this an OH Tetrahedron.

Epic puzzle Matthew! I for sure would love to see this puzzle on Shapeways. Can I ask why you haven't put many of your recent puzzles up for sale there?

updated video.

I don't put puzzles on shapeways for couple reasons. probably won't put any more for sale at shapeways anymore. This is my last new custom puzzle. I have run out of interesting ideas and puzzles take up too much of my time.

This puzzle will be for sale soon (just this copy of it I mean) as soon as I figure out how much I am going to ask for it. (forgot how much it cost me lol)

I may be a bit late posting, but this reminds me of the mosaic cube.
So my name suggestion would be the mosaic tetrahedron?
