I just thought I'd showcase a puzzle transformation that I completed last year: nothing new, but still one of my favorite builds to date.
It's my copy of Eitan's Octex, handmade with a Master Skewb as a base. All of the extensions were made by gluing flat pieces of cardboard or plastic card around the pieces, then casting into them, either individually or while the puzzle was assembled. The cards would then be peeled off and the resin ground down into the correct shape.
I regret not taking more pictures of the building process. It was not efficient by any means but was a good method considering the resources that I had available.
Some cleanup/repair work was required after the assembled pours; some holes weren't plugged up completely and resin would leak into the mechanism.
It's stickered with Meffert's Skewb vinyl, supplied by Tony Fisher (thanks Tony!
As always feedback is appreciated.
