Because I was bored and had waaaaay too much free time on my hands, I decided to take a shot at designing a Tera-Hexaminx. It was successful! Below are some photos.
First, a view of one face:

A cross-section view of the mechanism (no shenanigans here!):

I ran into several problems when designing this, such as how to fit the mechanism inside of the puzzle. But they have all been resolved!
Now, the real reason i wanted to start this thread is to hear your thoughts:
1. Would you be interested in seeing a physical version?
2. If so, would you buy it?
3. Do you think the mechanism is sound? (The corner stalks are quite thin, and I can't find a way to make them bigger)
4. Is this too ridiculous to be attempted? (I can only barely imagine the cost of producing this)
Anyway, thanks guys!
