It doesn't seem to have much corner cutting abilities.... Have you considered adapted the V-cube mechanism to your puzzle to improve the movement and speedsolving capabilities?

I can't wait to see some of the patterns and algs people come up with.

LOL excellent suggestion, it makes a trivial puzzle look so non-trivial. ;)
(a simpler variation of the Baby-Turn)

4096 combinations with a couple of solutions. Not bad at all.

Will anyone sell *.STL files for this?
