You mentioned "designs" but I could only view the one you'd linked directly to. (Maybe I don't understand ImageShack.)

Still, it looks like you've made a promising start!

The cuts on the last one look almost jagged in some spots. Shouldn't they be straight (or rather, curved) lines?

First there were expanded edges. Then there was Olzing, then Pillowing. This buldging-like property may be the next approach to previously inconcievable puzzles.

@squabpuzzles The pieces look jagged because the other pieces go UNDER the jagged piece, hope that cleared that up :D

Is it necesary to buldge the edges as well? I see why the main body is near-spherical, but not why the edges are so.

I just wanted to see how it would turn out but, you are correct they are not needed until it has a layer or two on the Z axis.

It wouldn't need to bulge nearly as much if you olz'd it.

i don't think this will work, so many pieces make the puzzle unstable and constantly pop out
