Slightly Inverted Bicone, meaning one side is a cone, and the other is a slightly inverted cone, with the point a little ways inside the other cone.

What a deliberately confusing shape :P

Looks great! If there was one puzzle I'd buy the STls for it would be that one :)

I should have known! When I said "UFO-shaped puzzle" I had in mind a puzzle much like the bicone but rounded nubs instead of the pointy tips. I can't believe that I didn't just think harder and realize that it was very close to a bicone! Excellent work.

Thanks Adam for this. I myself, will be extremely interested in your files (and files from others) as,
since I started my new job, access is granted to the Uni 3-printer.

I have never used 3-printers before, but I guess making the pieces and assembling them on your own,
can be very rewarding and make us appreciate even more the mechanisms of different puzzles.

;)

Send an e-mail to me, and I will send you the files sometime tomorrow.


For everyone else, the Bicone has 6 different parts, so the files cost $60, but if you order by 9/15, I will give them to you for $45.


Enjoy!
Adam


p.s. The catalog is still in progress, and should be up this week.

Sweettt, I've been waiting for this, thanks. I will hopefully buy something for my birthday.

PS. Is there a rough scale to standard 3x3 size for those pics?

They are all so beautiful. I can't wait to see them all made. Another advancement in the Twisty Puzzle community.

Wow. :D Hex Prism 1, Cylinder 2, and the Bicone are my favorites. Amazing job done on all of these though, I wish I had tons of money to buy all of them. :P

I will be detailing the spun cube and pillowed cube soon, but the Stella octangula would require cutting down the centers. I will need to either adjust the design, or put together detailed instructions for the centers.

If you want either the Spun or Pillowed cube, send me an e-mail, and I will get that one detialed this week.

Could you model the cut down center and add it as another part?

Couldn't you just make a file for the center instead of having to use the DIY center? They would just need the core and hardware.

I intended the parts to be an add on for the DIY kit, but there are a few mods that would work out best with alternate center parts. If I go that way, I may make them "advanced" mods, possibly with different internal geometry...

I also plan on designing a full (26 different pieces) mod of some kind. I want it to be original and interesting, not just a modification of an existing concept...

Wow. I completely missed that. Maybe you should have mentioned that in the first post or something. I always refer to the first post for status updates and stuff. Oh well, maybe next time.
