Hi all!
I liked the idea with Cubic Trisection by OSKAR , and I thought - why not cut a cube into 4 parts? We will get 4 pieces of different shapes, it will be more puzzling.

My cube has a size of 50 mm, red and blue parts are identical, but directed to different sides. Same with the white and green. Wall thickness - 1 mm, useful volume - 29.2 cm^3. It will cost about \$41. I still didn't uploaded it.

What is your opinion, colleagues?

Cool, but why not use the cube's natural 4-fold vertical axis, instead of splitting into 4 parts around the 3-fold diagonal axis?

I wanted to check workability, so made this cube from aluminum. It works great and yes, it's very simple puzzle - you just need to take 4 pieces...

Really beautiful. Will these (i.e. the aluminum version) be made for sale?

Thanks for your comments!

I uploaded this cube on shapeways (about 42 euros), but still didn't shared it. Don't want to offer you pig in the poke.
I'm sexy lucky and I know it , but not this time - Shapeways don't work with Russia.

If someone from Europe can help me with ordering (for additional fee), I'll be happiest. Just send me pm. I'll share it after checking.

p.s. If you're talking about aluminum samples - no, I'm not planning to make another ones.
