Here is my latest puzzle creation, after a summer break :lol:
It is made from a fused cube and stickered with cubesmith sticker sheets.
I might change the name if someone thinks of something better.
It came out to my satisfaction, and the stickering went well, thanks to some suggestions on the twistypuzzles chat :D
so here it is, tell me what you think.

I think it looks pretty cool. Is it made from a 2x2x2 fused cube or a 3x3x3 one? I think you should call it the Meiosis Cube because it looks like a cell in the process of being divided.

It looks so nice and very interesting.
However, since the name is too powerful

It looks kind of like a long crystal to me... "Crystal Cube"?

3x3x3 fused cubes. :D How about mitosis though, as it looks like it's splitting into two 2x2x2s (not exactly in half but close enough :wink:)?

Actually it is meiosis where one cell is divided into two halves. (Bio-Nerd to the rescue!!)

Cool that it's made out of 3x3x3 fused cube. Any chance you'll uploa a video and we can see more about it?

Very nice job. I made one of these several years ago as my first puzzle modification and couldn't come up with a decent name. I'm glad to see that you've found a nice one for it.

viewtopic.php?t=8047

If you "chop off" the ends, it makes a cool elongated hex prism.

It's not as good quality as I'd like,
I didn't get the faces as flat as they could be, but I think it turned out OK.
turning is good, although solving will be a challenge, I tried a little, but I don't even know how to solve a fused cube :oops:

In fact Alex was more accurate, it should be mitosis, where cells divide into two equal diploid copies, rather than meiosis where cells first divide into two diploid copies and then divide again into four haploid copies.

In any case I prefer the name Crystal Cube. :D

Cool! Nice that you got the video out. Hasn't the name Crystal Cube been taken before? If it hasn't, I find that very strange...

If there hasn't been one, i will just change it back.

@Doubleyou
Today I will be making more videos, I can make another one :D
I meant for it to be longer but the camera quit for some reason and I had an event that I had to leave for, but I will try to get another vid out.

Actually I have made a puzzle called something very close to that! "Crystallicube" It was a 2x2x2 babyface, with edges truncated
