Just another idea: a cubic 3x3x4. And before they come and say that's already made, I mean a 3x3x4 that can turn like a 3x3x4 or 3x3x3 (like the c4u 3x3x5 and 3x3x7). I was thinking a bandaged 6x6 (top and bottom layers bandaged like a 3x3, middle like a 3x3x2. Will post a picture of what th stickers would look like after i am done. I would do it to to fill the obvious gap between the 3x3x3 and 3x3x5 cubic. Would this work?

You could bandage a 6x6 to look like a cubic 3x3x4. I also remembered that Mr. Shanko designed a 3x3 with a split core and put it on shapeways. You could buy that and add some regular rubik's cube pieces to it, but then again it hasn't been prototyped yet :?

Could you post a link to the shapeways puzzle? Or if not, how much does it cost?

Sure thing:

I just found out this thing costs $50 :? so it might actually be cheaper to bandage a v-cube 6.

Yeah, but doesn't include shiping, bolt, washer, screw, 3x3...
My idea would be use apoxie sculpt (10$) to bandage a v cube (40$) so not really cheaper...

I meant that bandaging the v-cube might be cheaper. I think I just misunderstood something :oops:

Let's see:

Shapeways puzzle($50) + Shipping($10 est.) + Screws bolts and washers($3) + 3x3($10)= $73

Bandaging a 6x6 = $50

(I think, I estimated a lot)

Of course, the split core would make a better puzzle...
