Hi Twisty Puzzles fans,

Jumblix is another exercise in jumbling. It looks like two Megaminx halves fused together after a 180 degrees turn. A bit of fudging was needed to make this design work. Jumblix is based on the geometry of a (face-turning) pentagonal bipyramid, which has angles that are just a bit different from the regular dodecahedral geometry of the Megaminx.

I wonder whether anyone can build this puzzle as a shape mod by cutting up a Megaminx.

Watch the YouTube video.
Buy the puzzle from my Shapeways Shop.
Read more at the Shapeways Forum.
Check out the photos below.

Enjoy!

Oskar

Normally I'm not a fan of jumbling because I like a puzzle to retain some form of symmetry, but I love this, it's cool. :D

Fudging puzzles has such opportunity, and so far this is my favorite example of it! Great work, I hope to see even more fudging in your later designs :D

Another Oskar masterpiece! Every aspect of this puzzle is just great, and seems to use some of the best aspects of twisty puzzles: shape, number of pieces, symmertry, jumbling, fudging. It's all there.
I am looking forward to seeing this at the DCD in 2 weeks time! (you are going, right Oskar?)
