I'm trying to imagine a cubic version of this puzzle but I can't quite figure it out. Anyhow this is very neat.

actually what I said roughly translates into "Wow! a circle-Halpern-meyer Tetrahedron! The mods you make are very interesting, I don't even understand how they work!" (Chinese is my first language, but I speak English more often so my chinese grammar may be incorrect)

Amazing! How can this idea be transformed onto a skewb?!!
So you turn a face, but the inner circle stays.

Drew, it looks like his resin is going bad, making air bubbles in the part. So when he sands it exposes the air bubbles and fills them with black residue from the sanding.

Daqing Bao, your puzzles are all incredible. I would recommend finding a different casting resin, one that reduces bubbles.

We haven't seen any videos of any of your puzzles, yet. Any chance you could make one for this puzzle? 动态影像?

Thank you. 謝謝您.
