Hello everyone!

On first hand, I want to apologize for creating an other one of these threads. But I would like to express that I want this to be a success!

I would like to check if there would be any interest in my puzzle, the 4x4x4 Truncated Rhombic Dodecahedron, the 18 colored
Sigurd's CrystalliCube.

I will remake (by hand) the masters and molds due to the updated design. As a default I will make it in Black. And I will make enough for any of you to each get one.

Dont PM ordering one yet, simply write here if you are interested :)

For now I will make one copy and make a post about it.

Thank you!

Sigurd Wedel

As others have said before...shouldn't you have your finished puzzle readily available along with pictures and/or videos posted before making a topic about "interest" in buying a puzzle???

If you've already made the puzzle and I've overlooked it somewhere in another thread, disregard the above and link to it in your topic....otherwise where's the puzzle you want to sell??

I have made it. here is the topic: viewtopic.php?f=15&t=8207&p=82384&hilit=sigurd%27s#p82384

The new version will not be that far truncated. It will be like in the drawing. It will move better and it will be black.

Not to be critical here, but why does it always have to be "is anyone interest in this puzzle" or "who will buy this"? Why can't you guys just build puzzles for the fun, or for the sake of building something that's never been done? That should be enough reward. If you build something unique, or good quality, people will contact you to buy your puzzles.

Nobody wants to commit to buying a puzzle based on screenshots of a concept drawing, CAD drawings, or an unfinished prototype (though that's the closets to a final puzzle). There are a lot of people making stuff with CAD, and there are only a handful who can do it successfully. I hate to say that, but it's true. I've wasted a lot of money buying STL files, having them printed, only to find the parts weren't made right.

Produce a puzzle. Then there will be interest. This is not a revelation. This has been repeated over and over and over by many people.
