AWESOME!!! To quote SaiyanKirby: "I just had a Nerd-gasm"

That thing is epic! Does it shape shift?

Based on the fact it's FF, and the 3 is odd and the 5 is odd (3x4x5), then it should shapeshift.

It was mentioned in the building topic that there are cubies on it that are bigger than the others, thus making me ask the question...

If it doesn't shapeshift, I think someone should come up with one that does :)

This does shape shift a little. On certain faces. Of course after turning a few things some moves are blocked due to the position of the cubies, not due to their size. If my phone will stop being screwy I'll put up another pic of some turned faces. :)

p.s. thanks for posting that link DragonCuber, I've added it in the first post :)


***Updated first post with more pics***

Tony I came across this in the 2x3x5 thread a few minutes ago and just wanna say that I'm really glad you're not a Chinaman! :lol:

If it's not made by the end of 2009 by someone then I am a Chinaman.

Nothing better than coming home from holiday and seeing your puzzle design actually works, not even coming home from holiday and finding a golden cube and a morphegg beats that!

A bit of clarification from me: it is entirely proportional (16mm cubies), since I posted the 'building-topic' the design has changed a lot. Don't use that PDF as reference material.

The puzzle will receive a bit of tweaking from me after which (it will be a while) I'll post some better (stickered) pictures and a video.
