WOW! :shock: These puzzles are crazy shape shifters. Is the 2x2x3 based on this puzzle, or is the mechanism designed from scratch?

They are both designed as Masterball addons.

Claus, I love the shapehifting of the split 2x2x4 on the 5th picture :lol:

Very, if you think 8.16 cm small edge is big :lol: It was necessary to make it proportionnal though. In other words a cubie is 4.08*4.08*4.08 cm

Now that is a lot of WSF material. How much did they cost to print (not that cost is any concern to Claus :wink: ).

With the pieces being so large, does this mean that they flex quite a lot? Were you not tempted to make the walls thicker or provide some internal structures to make the pieces stiffer?
