Very true.
I could imagine that in this case gluing the pieces onto the puzzle took longer than designing it. Am I right?

Is it a 8x8 cube changing into a Dodecahedron shape?

Otischeng, yes there is a 8x8x8 inside.

Andreas, the designing took me 1 hour. I need several attempts to find the right fillets.

I think people with CAD skills, like Greg, they need only 10 minutes or less, to design this.

The pieces I have glued are close to 300. This is the same job like stickering (2 hours).

Claus!

I have an offer for you!
If you send me the puzzle for try, I'll make you better stickers (for free), and re-sticker your puzzle.
And of course after few weeks (1-2) I'll send it back.

What do you think?

Wow, what a question?

Wow, what an unbelievable offer!!!!!!

Yes of course, I will do that. After stickering you can post pictures or video here.

You can bring it with to the DCD.

Brilliant. Has a really unexpected look to it. It's going to be a total nightmare when mixed up and wonder if you will dare do it.

Sorry to bump this topic, just wanted to ad a picture from the Rubik's European Championship:

I have received the puzzle,
Re-stickered it at the first day of the Championship. And of course I've played with it a lot.
It was fun! Thanks!

Claus:
I will ship your puzzle back this week among with some extra stickers!
