I am now offering my Mechanical Mini Pentultimate as a DIY kit for $99/€85 on Shapeways.

Image

Thanks to it's extraordinarily small size of 25mm on an edge, it is very inexpensive. This puzzle uses a shells mechanism, which builds up from a Megaminx through a Pyraminx Crystal to a Master Pentultimate. It turns very smoothly and is exceptionally stable. Though the parts are intricate and delicate, the puzzle as a whole is very sturdy and is not at risk of breaking at all (under reasonable use, at least).

Vist my custom puzzle shop to buy your very own Mini Pentultimate DIY kit for just $99/€85 (free UPS worldwide shipping).

Due to high demand, I have to charge $200+shipping for the assembled puzzles. Please consider assembling the puzzle yourself (it's a lot of fun! But not when you have to do it seven times...) or even seeing if you can pay another forum member to do it for you.

PS: I'm looking forward to being able to write the alliteration of Mechanical Master Mini Pentultimate :wink:

Does the DIY set come with stickers?

No, since Shapeways only does 3D printing they can not send you any stickers. However you can purchase them from Dr. Sticker and (soon) from Olivèr Nagy.
Your order from Shapeways will not include the 6 M3 screws needed to assemble the puzzle either. Sorry. I wish I could offer these parts from Shapeways but they do not provide this service yet. However, they are quite easy to find at most any hardware store.

OK. I was confused because of the "too many parts" thing on the page.
