Although it is my smallest 1x2x3 puzzle, it is still made of 289 pieces.
If you want to have one, you can either buy one from the link in the video description or download the designs from there and make one from your own parts.

I am sorry for my bad accent. :(
Right now I'm trying to make a "small" 2x2x3.

I would like to view your design with design by me, but I can't find the files on lego's website. could you give me a direct link? I love the new size. do the mini 2x3x3 soon. :P

edit: Oh wait, I just found the files.

Looks really cool!

I'll wait to see the 2x3x3 though as this one just seems a little too easy!

It must be really cool to get something delivered that you designed yourself :D

Could anybody please give me a direct link to see the mini 1x2x3 or do you have to sign up?

here you can see a picture of the cuboids he has created. to see them in a movable 3d enviroment you must first download lego digital designer: http://ldd.lego.com/download/
after you have downloaded lego digital designer hit the download button under one of the models that you see when you click on the first link. hope this helps!

thanks all of you! I thought about a domino but that would be really hard to build. But maybe I find a solution later :)
I'm just building the small 2x2x3 - takes some time to find alll the pieces :?

I am also going to try to build the mini 2x2x3.(as long as you don't mind) but I'll use a slightly different mechanism. finding the pieces is a pain, but you don't know annoyance until you have tried the old version of lego digital designer.

Of course you may, but i didn't upload it yet, so how can you already make one?
Or why are you willing to change the mechanism? :?:

because no matter how hard I try I can't make sense of your 2x2x3.

of the mechanism? :?:
The mechanism is a 1x2x3 bandaged to a 1x2x2 which is extended to the 2x2x3...so what exactly are you gonna build?

yes, I didn't understand the mechanism of it.
I was going to go for a different inner 1x2x2.

How did you want to make one? I don't see any other option using Lego...

I was going for more of an inner 1x3x3...but having tried that I realized it would be extremely to secure the peices.I have also been looking into the possibility of a lego 3x3x3. I built the core and the edge and then I exited before I saved. :? It is really useful to use the template on L.D.D. to have parts ready for use.

yeah, a 3x3x3 is almost impossible to make...here some photos:

I don't "reveal" the mechanism yet, because I want to build my own one first :) Also, of course I still have to do some tests on it and maybe I can improve some details...

A 3x3 is really quite difficult if you go for a conventional mechanism, but i'm using a void cube like mechanism.( it will probably fail anyway.) also, it would be cool to stick some extra cubies on a 2x2x3 to make it LOOK LIKE a 3x3. not fully functional but cool.

I don't think a void cube mech is easier then a normal one, because you still need these circles that are split into 9 parts...
but would be really cool, of course!
I thought about extending the new 2x2x3 but not to make it look like a 3x3x3, but like, maybe, homer's head or a house or sth like that.
Edit: Or this one ^^ viewtopic.php?f=15&t=20922
