Well, this is my newest puzzle. Dave, if you still want to be a little surprised, exit this thread now! Im really proud of this puzzle, because for me it's the most complex puzzle i've designed, printed, and created. I hope to have a new puzzle as my most complex one very soon though ;) The mech for this puzzle is based on the spindle domino. I'm going to have a waiting list set at $250 for this puzzle over on http://www.bedardpuzzles.com

Uhm, I do actually have files for a floppy pentagon that i designed, but im not sure how stable it would be because the center expands a lot more then it has to in the floppy cube.

on a side note... can someone help me solve this? i thought I could use a regular domino solution, but i'm not smart enough to figure out how to convert it to a pentagonal domino solution... so it's kind of sitting here all messed up. lol

Not likely! I can't wait for it to show up :) It seems my blind investment has paid off well. As for a solution, give me a few hours with it and I'll figure out something.

Nice work Scott,

Dave

I really liked that pentagon 3 layer. 2 layers is just as cool! :D

Well I would solve it edges first. For convenience of naming turns, I will call turns of the 2 layers with centers 'face turns' and the other type of turn will be called an edge turn. I don't really care how accurate that is, it's just easier to describe.

1. solve 4 edges on a layer
2. use the 5th edge spot as a sort of buffer zone or holding position and use only face turns of the layer without solved edges and edge turns of the 5th edge spot
3. all edges should be solved now. use commutators that only use edge turns to solve the corners. use face turns only as setup moves.

Hope that helped,
Danny

Really great puzzle does the original three layer solve like a 3x3x3?
