Fantastico, Italrubik, da applauso! :D

Prima o poi ti chiederĂ² qualche buon consiglio: voglio iniziare anch'io a costruire qualche bel puzzle, lascia solo che trovi un po' di tempo libero :wink:

Yes, the 2nd and 3rd pics are a bandaged mod of square1, I don't know if someone made it before this, it is just an experiment... :P

Grazie Gianni,
è veramente un piacere poter scrivere qualcosa in italiano su questo forum! :P :P :P :P Contattami pure quando vuoi, nessun problema, mi fa veramente contento sapere che ci sono altri connazionali che si interessano a questi puzzle! :lol: :P In effetti siamo piuttosto pochi a rappresentare il nostro paese, non credi anche tu?
A presto, salutissimi, Fabio.
(for english speakers..It's a pleasure for me to meet another Italian as me in this forum, and in this fantastic puzzle world, unfortunately we are not so much as in other countries... :? )

nice bandaging ideas! the bandaged Square-1's look really interesting.

one question: are there two different ones, or are the pictures top and bottom views of the same puzzle?

I can't remember anyone bandaged this puzzles before => It's the first.

... except you think of a Square-1 or the star prism as an bandaged Dodecagonal Prism. In that case yours is the third bandaged variant out of the 618 possible ones.

618 different bandaged mods on a square-1? Wow...

But seems to me that most of them will have a big defect: will make the square-1 impossible to scramble! :lol:

Oops! A misunderstanding occured:
There are 618 bandaged mods of a dodecagonal prism and all of them can be scrambled.
The mods, impossible to scramble, have already been counted out, although I have to admit that there are trivial mods comparable to the 1x1x3-mod.

I just got finished making mine.

Unlike Ton, I used JB Weld instead of the "plastic soldering" method.

I'll be getting stickers for it soon, but it's not going to look nearly as nice as the ones on his site.
