Very nice Oskar. I like this puzzle a lot more than the previous version, and I especially love the price drop! :)

By how much more should the price drop, before you would consider buying this puzzle? :-)

Well, being a fourteen year old kid doesn't help, and nor does a Mixup Cube available for $50. But considering that the price went from $400 something down to $280, that's a pretty amazing price drop.

Who knows Oskar? Wait a few years and who knows what crazy puzzles from you I'll be buying. :P

I know I had my helicopter Skewb (60 x 60 x 60 mm) with about 160 parts printed for about 120 dollar including 19% Vat
While hollowing a puzzle out works very nicely, the real price drop comes from getting the density discount. Parts can be really close to eachother, as you have allready attempted. If that is not enough for the discount, you can actually try increasing the wall thickness to reach the density. If you do, it will likely be cheaper. You could even throw in some extra pieces, fun things, whatever. The 50% price drop is much more significant than a few cc extra to print, just make sure not to expand the "blank box".
