Today I finished this mod at 2:45, got on twistypuzzles only to find that I had been beat by a matter of 8 minutes to making this crazy puzzle. Excellent job Flambore! I am amazed at how close we were with making these! It's crazy sometimes how close two of the same puzzles can be made (another good example is the Hexagonal Prism). Anyway, here is my version of the triangular prism. I might be starting a waiting list like the Axis Cube is being done by flambore. I'm not quite sure yet, though. Enjoy!

Great looking puzzle. This is my favorite of Adam's designs. I think you really hit the nail on the head with this one.

I love those transformations.

haha Great job! Sorry to steal your thunder. You beat me tho because you have two of them! :) I've had the STL files for this one as long as I've had the axis cube. I also have the hex prism 2, which I haven't built yet. I'm really focusing my energies on the axis cube at the moment, but I really love these puzzles.

Thank you all! I really enjoyed casting this puzzle because it seems so easy next to the hex prism. I suppose that's so because there's no core or caps or center's to cast. I think I will make a short run of these. Expect a waiting list soon.

Great job my friend.

By any chance can we get a picture of it in the super flip and checker board patters?

Although I prefer Flambore's because of the white plastic, I must say, fantastic job on this. :) Now I have yet another puzzle to buy. :roll: ;)

Well, I plan to mold mine in black too. And he can do his in white. So then how are you going to know the difference? :P

You spelled triangular wrong in the title

My post on the other Triangular Prism thread Is valid of course in the same way here.
This is an outstanding design and both of you built this puzzle with high accuracy.
Congratulations!

great puzzle, I love the way it shapeshifts, I agree with Georges in that I love shapeshifting puzzles. :D

I would be glad to do the super flip, but what exactly is it? The third picture is of the checkerboard.

The superflip is the position in which the corners are solved and the edges all have correct permutation (are in the right spots) but are all mis-oriented ("flipped"). Here's an algorithm: U R2 F B R B2 R U2 L B2 R U' D' R2 F R' L B2 U2 F2

Indeed.

An easier algorithm is:

[(M' U)x4 z y]x3
