Since I saw a couple other people showing what they have created, I thought I would too. I have been designing for a couple of months now, using Alibre Design. I did download Solidworks, but I found out that I didn't have enough RAM to run it :( . I probably won't be making any of these - at least not any time soon. Anyway, Here is what I have designed!

He might be more willing to sell STLs for masters, maybe if he was offered a puzzle back for it?

Awesome! I love the Circle 4x4x2. Just thought I'd say that it's a 4x4x2, not a 2x2x4.

I might make something simple like a 1x2x5 when I can afford it, but there are alot of puzzles I want to buy and still cant afford them! :P

A possibility, but I am not 100% sure that some of the more complex puzzles will work, but I would be happy to for something I know will work, such as 1x2x3, 1x2x5, Jumble Grimace, Triangular prism, etc. All the fairly simple ones. :P

Opps how could I have made that mistake :oops: :oops: :oops: Thanks for correcting me :)

Thanks! The 3x3x3Helicopter wasgoing to be much more simple, until I found you couldn't have proportional 3x3x3 cubies with the helicopter parts on the outer part staying in without pillowing, and then after pillowing it affects the different angles of the cuts. I sort of made it up as I went. :lol:

One of the puzzles I'm not 100% sure about. I think it should work though.

I find the jumble grimace the most interesting.

What jumble prism?

these are great puzzles! I've tried making the 3x3+Helicopter before in SolidWorks, but I haven't printed it yet, as the curves are too complex for my current skills in casting.

Well, I've designed a few more puzzles, and instead of creating a new thread I'll just post them here. Not as many as I would have hoped to have done, but oh well :P :

Really cool designs, but I'm pretty sure that 3x3+HC wont work. I can't be certain without seeing the mechanism, but it looks like some parts will be hanging off of the mechanism after certain turns.

I also see a few of my designs on there, which is cool :wink:

and I LOVE the circle 2x2x4. Awesome idea, and if it works, that would be epic.

I'm not too sure whether or not the 3x3x3+HC will work either. I might try and go over it and see. The Circle 2x4x4 Should work, I'm pretty sure, just need to fix the Internal Blocking part.

Yep, I sure did :D . Cores are one thing I need to work on too, with getting the hole sizes right and all.

Thanks everyone for your positive and encouraging feedback!

those master prism and junior prisms are REALLY wacky, I think I understand how they turn, but, after the first turn do they jumble? Pretty confusing and awesome puzzles there.

Mechanism-wise, they do not jumble, but shape-wise, they do. Thanks.

please don't confuse people by calling a puzzle "jumble" if it dosn't jumble, like the jumble grimace for example, it can be shape modded to a doctrinaire puzzle, therefore its not a jumble puzzle
