Here is what I've been working on this weekend thanks to an idea of Jared's posted here. I initially thought this wouldn't turn very well but now I'm not so sure. Its actually fudged less then my other Slice-turn-only Mixup Master Skewb. And as I had already worked out the geometry for that puzzle I had all the tools I needed to work this one out. I hope to get this into SolidWorks in the next several weeks.

Enjoy,
Carl

Is it little enough that you can make it fully functional and not just slices?

Cool idea! But as it is not a finished puzzle, it shouldn't be in "new puzzles".

I agree 100%. In fact I would have sworn I was in the Puzzle Building and Modding section when I posted this last night. Odd... Would a mod please move this thread?

Thanks,
Carl

I don't think so but due to the way the edges are cut you could make the core of this puzzle a 2x2x2 without changing the shape of the slidey triangles. Not knowing how well this will turn I think my best chances are to start with the slice-turn-only version which I think would actually be the harder puzzle.

If I understand the question correctly then the answer is yes.

You are looking end on at some cylinders I put on some references axes that I'll need to get this geometry into SolidWorks. That also explains the other odd lines seen in the image.
