these puzzles has been bothering me for a while!

can you please tell me what mechanism these puzzles are based on?
and maybe some tips on how to approach builds?

Lattice Cube
Master Skewb
Pyracue (okay I found the answer in the database: Skewb)

these three puzzles attract me so much! one day I gotto have one of each!

have anyone around here attempted them? because it seems like alot of complicated and precise work

maybe not now but soon it would be nice to attempt some more complex builds. hmm, do you think it would be offensive to build these?

THANKS!!

I ordered 5 rainbows from them :) thanks for telling me!

well, does the master skewb also use the rainbow as mecha? it doesnt seem like it..

about the Lattice (master rainbow), how in the world is it possible to create those corner pieces?
how can you make the three pieces rotate, and being able to shift places on the puzzle?

I have been thinking about this alot! and my conclusion is that I have to attach another "layer" on the corners (rainbow-centers). then create tracks in the normal pieces that the corner-pieces can run in.

please help me out if I am way off!

well,

you have to make an hole on the triangle sides, and then you make the corner pieces with a core.
take a look at this http://puzzle3d.hp.infoseek.co.jp/latticecube.html

it seems very complicated. I think I might give it a shot tho

Simon45 why didnt you try this one? did you see too much work? or simply too complicated?
