Hi,
Yesterday I finished 4 mods and now I have my own DinoCube! :)
The other three were realizations of the same idea.
The second picture should explain the new and different sizes.

I really love the octahedrons with the larger than normal centers. Once I finish my current mods I may have to take a shot at making one of those.

Great Builds!
Shouldn't this be in the Puzzle building section?

Thanks for all your kind words.

@Frank Tiex
The Octaeder have edges which are 67, 81, 94, 121 mm long.
The extensions for 81mm and 94mm variants are made out of Apoxie and are therefore very heavy. On the 121mm Apoxie was just used for the outer layer.
This means they are so heavy and/or big that it is unprobable to see them at DCD. I don't want to waste to much space for the puzzles I want to buy...

Very nicely done indeed. Nice work.

I'll pop this over to the building section while I'm here.

Thanks to John and the others.
But there won't be any new photos for a while since my camera got wrecked.
